WINTER Continues

It is March, and it is still winter.  Today we had above freezing temperatures since early morning.  It has been a long time coming.  We may actually see more above freezing weather for this coming week or so.  But, if the past is any indication of what may happen, it could change to  another snowstorm. All in all we are continuing to plan for the near future.  Our oldest son and his family are visiting this weekend.  We are looking forward to spending time with them.
At the end of the month we plan to go volunteer at Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) near Saint Louis, MO.  We will take that opportunity to visit with our children, who live in that area.

This last week we were special guests at the Dining Out of the Officers Candidate School, here in Iowa.  The unit had decided to honor local Viet Nam veterans; it is the 50th anniversary of the start of the Viet Nam war.  I got to wear my dress blue uniform, which still fits albeit a little tight.  It was a wonderful formal affair, with full attention to protocol.  We really enjoyed being there.  Of course we also enjoyed the fabulous meal and the special honors which were afforded.
Waiting for spring, though.
