2017 June 10

I woke in the night with a ‘charlie horse’(http://www.webmd.com/pain-management/muscle-spasms-cramps-charley-horse} in my right leg. I haven’t had those since I was a teenager. I got up and walked around for a little bit and the muscle relaxed. Because of my early morning exercise (grin) I slept later than usual and didn’t get out of bed until almost 6:30.

We are headed to Clear Lake Iowa today. My nephew, Kirk, is getting married today. He had originally ask if I could preform the ceremony. I told him that I’m not a licensed minister just a certified Lay Speaker. I know that there are websites where you can become “ordained” for a couple of dollars. However, I have too much respect for those ordained ministers, who attend years in seminary training.

Here are some photos of the wedding

Ella and I with my niece, Krista and her husband, Russ and also my great-nephew, Tyler.


Here is a photo of Tyler, Kirk & Rita, and Tyler’s wife, Regina

And here are some pictures of the typical Iowa countryside … exciting isn’t it?







Two hours up to the wedding and two hours back. 95 degrees and 30 mile an hour winds.
