Apple Canyon Lake

Shelly and Shayne and I drove down to Grant County Friday night. We got to Scott & Angie's at about 1. The Gibson's, Mary, & our kids were there already. We popped up the camper, had a few beers and slept for a few hours.

Saturday we drove into Illinois for a day of fun. We golfed with the Malone's and then had a party at Jean & Pat's. Steve played bass in a band, "Just 1 More." They played a couple of sets for us on the porch, then brought out Jean's karaoke machine. Somewhere in there, Dave and I got a chance to find a few geocaches. One was near a questionable bridge.

Kayla stayed the night with Steve and Patti and their daughters, and Jamie stayed at Danny's. Michaela came back from Benton, and we retrieved Jamie from Dan & Charity's, along with a nice lunch.

The Navy has a tradition of helping their own. Elroy day, a former bubble head has an incredible story to tell. He was blinded in a home invasion in North Carolina in 1995. He recently applied for and was accepted into the Purple Heart Service Foundations job training program to teach him how to become an at home call center agent. Against all odds, working with a disability that would stop most everyone else, he graduated. He completed 600 hours of hard training and now he is reaching out to other blind and vision disabled veterans to tell them about the opportunity that he had. He wants other blind veterans to come and join him. You see, he has a dream of opening a blinded veterans call center. Staffed by former members of the US military who are now blind, for what ever reason. You can help with his dream, just spreading the word. If you know of any veteran who is vision disabled, have them contact Elroy Day immediately . They can email him at or call Ms. Thompson at 703 835 3531.
And remember, the Navy has a tradition of helping their own.
