Gold Cards

Hello all,

football players in Walla Walla sell Gold Cards. They usually do a door-to-door blitz and hit the entire city. This year, there isn't any blitz, the players are on their own.

If you buy a Gold Card, you get discounts at several local places, mostly restaurants. The discounts are good for a year. Our Gold Card always pays for itself within days; the Lorenzo's pizza deal is a good one! They cost $10. If anyone wants one, let me know. We have to sell 32!!!!


Lou, a courtly and elegant gentleman, devoted father, loving husband, died today...8/31/06. Godspeed, dear Lou. We honor a life well-lived, a man well-loved. Cathy, Drew and Damon, our prayers are with you. I found this verse. I like to think that Lou took the hand that was offered. While we are here, knowing the pain of being left behind, we can cling to the certainty of a glad reunion.


  1. I want one Michelle; I will get it from you next week when you are in.

  2. I'm in for one. Is there a Starbucks deal on this one? If so I might want two. Glad you let us know.
    Just mentioned this to my husband he wants one also, we are in for two for sure.

  3. My dear Walla Walla friends,

    Thank you. Thank you, all. I love you. I love you all. Thank you for your support and kindness, for a stranger across the country...the city mouse. I can't wait to meet you all, and I will. I will ... I have to. Thank you. Your kindness overwhelms me. Sending you all love.

    w/o Lou, the love of my life.

August Blog Challenge - Day 9

List 10 people who have influenced you and describe how.

Okay, on this blog you've read a lot about my mom and dad.  And Dave, Doug and Kyle.  And Kenny, Zach, Kaitlyn and Kailee.  These people are my family.  Everything I do, I do for them.  It would be impossible for me to adequately describe their influence on me.  And I've talked about them a lot.  So I'm just going to say a word about each of them and what they've taught me - and then I'll go into 10 people outside that circle.

Mom taught me to think of others.  Dad taught me to work hard.  Dave taught me to love unconditionally and out loud.  Doug taught me to never give up and to enjoy each moment.  Kyle taught me to be a mother.  Kenny taught me to embrace the life you have and to laugh.  Zach taught me to think things through and go 100%. Kaitlyn taught me about honesty and that there is always sunshine, even when you can't see it.  Kailee taught me new aspects of faith and faithfulness.

I got a tattoo.  Christine actually wrote on my facebook post, "You??"
Yeah.  Me.

I've been thinking about it for six years.
I finally decided that if after six years, I still wanted it, maybe it was time.

The writing is Dave and Doug's.
Taken from notes they wrote me.
They always signed their notes the same way.

I thought I was doing it in memory of them.
To mark the way they are always on my heart.
To have a visible reminder.
A permanent keepsake,
always with me.

And while it is that.
It is also more.

I didn't realize it,
until afterwards.

It's a marker.
A closing of a chapter.
Closure, if you will.

I don't know how to explain it.
The minute it was finished,
I knew.
I knew something inside me was different.

and to a lesser extent,
have been part of my every thought
every day
for over 10 years.

Daryl saw the Dali Lama this summer.
One thing he learned:
Interrogate your truth.

I've been thinking about that a lot.

Interrogate implies a…
