My 70th Birthday Marathon ~ Supper With Josh

It began on February 7 and lasted until February 18.

Now that I am into the last day of this marathon, I feel a bit like it has been a biblical jubilee and as of today I am in need of a biblical fast. 🙂

I will begin that tomorrow. 🙂

1My birthday celebration began at Jere and Kristen’s house on the evening of February 7 – when I was a young 69 and Josh was only 18.

We are delighted (at least I am) to share birthdays.

1c (4)Cerwin found an old digital camera the other day when cleaning out a drawer. We took it along to see if one of the boys needed one. Jesse is the only one without a camera, so we made his day.
