    Last I developed a serious case of pneumonia. Because of the covi/hospital cituation I put off going to the emrgency a little too long and required immediate hospitalization. No beds to be had on the Oregon Coast. Nearest  bed was 100 miles away. Ambulance was ordered, they too are busy, it took 5 hours for them to show up. Two hour run to the Hospital in Spring field. Checked in at 11:30 PM.
    The worst part besides haveing to do it without my wife's presence was the two hour ambulace ride. I was told it would be very uncomfortable and it was. Given the choice of the ambulance trip or having my fingernails pulled out one by one, I think I would lean toward the fingernails.

    Anyone else feel like they have to recover from each nights sleep?  How we also long for "seasons of refreshing" and "a healing to the bones" in a physical way.

    Today I had the part about not being disloyal. My computer  suddenly lost power in the middle of a comment. Fortunately it was a brother who always gives looooong comments. I ran to a different device and logged into Zoom and he was still speaking. Apparently nobody noticed.

    This a screen shot from the Video “ Warwick Museum Tours: “A People for Jehovah’s Name.”
    That is my grandmother Betty Shilton seated at the piano. She went to Bethel in 1946 as an organist for WBBR and remained there until her death.
    I have very few pictures of her and I did not have this one.

    My son got a visit in Ghent (Belgium) !!! Someone of our brothers gave him a magazine today while in a "ship to ship" ministry in Ghent's harbor. He was surprised and impressed as he said. Hope it will lead to something... I would like to say special thanks to those of you, my dear friends who make efforts to learn russian. ❤

    I am sitting in front of my keyboard, musing over times past and friends from long ago. A coment in todays forum concerning love novels reminded me of an author of love novels I have known since we were in the same congregatio and went to the same high school. Barbara Kay Turner of Redding CA, she wrote a series of love novels under that name, When the publishers demanded more sex she dropped that genre, then she wrote a popular series of books on baby names (just checked and they are still selling on Amazon) To me she will allways be Kay Benbrook fro Arcata CA. The sad word we received is that she has had a severe stroke and cannot communicat. The communicato can't communicate, sad. So differnt than the Kay I went to High School with. Just musing

    Gertrude got her first ambulance ride today. She had been doing better, actually quite well until last night, but we assumed she was just tired, so I took the opportunity to go back to Newport today to take care of things. I got to Albany, 5 hours out on a 6 hour drive, started at 5:30 AM, when Leslie called and said Mom had collapsed and she had called 911. I am 80 YO and too far along the drive to turn back. The last hour was one miserable drive.
    Leslie called and said they did a brain scan and all is OK in that department. Gertrude is totally conscous and was able to eat between tests. As I write she is in an ambulance heading back to Cherry Hill in Seattle (EMR was at Providence Hospital in Everett) for blood circulation tests. Four months, so far, I hope for the best and ....
    Thanks for prayers

    Update on Gertrudes health. The neurosurgeon decided that Gertrude has had enough time to show improvement. Lacking any tangible improvement calls for surgery. To late in the day to schedule anything. We will be heading to Seattle's Swedish Medical Center to take advantage of their Bloodless Surgery paractice first thing tomorrow morning.
