Tuesday stuff...

Enjoy a little more 'yard art'...and no, I didn't buy the airplane, but it sure is cute!
Paul Newman founded the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp for children stricken with cancer, AIDS and blood diseases. One afternoon he and his wife, Joanne Woodward, stopped by to have lunch with the kids.
A counselor at a nearby table, suspecting the young patients wouldn't know that Newman was a famous movie star, explained, 'That's the man who made this camp possible. Maybe you've seen his picture on his salad dressing bottle?' Blank stares. 'Well, you've probably seen his face on his lemonade carton.'
An eight-year-old girl perked up. 'How long was he missing?'

So today is a busy one. I will also be 'missing' this morning, as I have two meetings to head up and errands to run. Just another day in paradise. Y'all enjoy your Tuesday!!! Make it a good one.

We had a good orthodonist visit. Miss A is looking at braces when she loses some more baby teeth, but Miss M is good to go and may not ever need them.

That camp really help out the kids. I know from old co-workers that the community we served enjoyed the living heck outta that place. It was a chance for kids with hemophilia to enjoy normal summer camp activities.

Back when I could still golf prior to major back problems, I used to play in a tournament just about every year that gave the proceeds to The Hole in the Wall Camp. It was always a most worthy cause.
