Had a really wonderful day. We held a benefit for one of my dog show friends that had a stroke in Dec. We are not sure if she will ever get to the point of being able to show dogs again. She did not have insurance and has had to move in with her sister. The day was beautiful. A bit overcast but it kept it cool for the dogs. Charlotte's son drove her out and she was so happy to see all her friends there. Lots of hugs & tears. I got to see many people that did not know I had been ill as well.
I think they were able to raise some decent money to help her out.
Afterwards I went to our friend's for Sunday dinner. Had Low Country boil with crab legs. it was soooooooooo good !! Brought hubby home a plate of food since he has had the sickies all weekend.  Back to work tomorrow.

HAPPY EASTER 
AND
 HAPPY PASSOVER

My joy is to celebrate Easter with my family this weekend.  I'm just back from Austin where we celebrated my grandson's 13th birthday.  He sounds like a man now- yikes!  Had a joyful time with my daughter, my son-in-law and my grandchildren.

I'm also so happy to read your posts of joy.  GO WARRIORS!

Hug,
Elaine

My DH and I took a drive up to Petit Jean State Park today.  The views from the top of the mountain were spectacular...the valleys below were filled with cattle and horses and their new little ones, trees were leafing out and all is well.  Nature at it's best.  Simply spectacular.
