Brandon and Rachael are in the process of negotiating on a house. It needs a couple of repairs done, so the owner is getting estimates on it. (Holly – it is the one over by you that Brandon told you about.)

Also, Rachael’s employer is not figuring her years of service right, in order for her to get her full 2 weeks vacation that she has coming. They say she is starting her 5th year with them, when it is actually her 6th. Somebody cannot add. She started in September 2001. So September 2006 completed 5 years, and started her 6th. Her employer is missing a year somewhere. So I have typed it all out, so they cannot miss it. The bad thing is that the girl who cannot add this up correctly, is also the girl that does the payroll    So this needs prayer.

I just got pictures of my cousin, Tom, in Iraq. He is in Balad. Notice the name badge. When something goes wrong, superiors want to know who is responsible. Hence the name tape “Responsible One”.

Responsible one


Tom 3

base 10

Apache at Balad

base 15

My aunt said she hoped the rest of the base looked better than these pictures, because it would be like being in prison for a year.

Technically, Tom is a cousin-in law. He is married to my cousin, Jill. But they will be married 22 years this month, so he’s practically family   Jill’s brother is Ross, who is stationed in Afghanistan (see his picture on the left).

We have the business meeting at church tonight, so I better get busy on the Treasurer’s Reports.
