I recently finished reading his book, Patriots, How to Survive the Coming Collapse. It was a good story and full of practical survival information.

Landis Graduation

Pictures from our trip to Clarksville for Landis' nursing school graduation & pinning and lots of grandbabies! We really enjoyed getting to be there for Landis' pinning ceremony. It was special to be able to participate and we are so proud of her. It took lots of hard work to go through the one year crunch program and with 4 children, including a little baby, and a husband is Afghanistan, she came out with a 93 average (and just a point under a 94) so she did great. It was fun and we enjoyed seeing the kids and you will see from these photos. If you click on the photo about, it should take you to an album on Picasa Web Albums so you can see them all. It was a good trip, but as you all know, there is no place like home.
Love ya.

Update on Preemie baby - Little Marlee

Cristi wanted an update on our friend, Darlene's, preemie baby.

Here's a pic of Marlee who's about 1 mo. old now. Weighs just a little over 5 lbs. Is doing great - I saw her for the first time today and she is just perfect - beautiful skin, pretty little long slender fingers and toes and she's just wonderful. God is good.

Prayers needed for preemie baby & mom

My friend Darlene is having her baby about 6 wks early. She's been in the hospital for a number of days already as they decided not to let her go home til the baby comes. Her blood pressure has been out of control. Day before yesterday they decided the baby was showing signs of anxiety so they were to either c-section or induce depending on the baby's position. I guess it was head down as that was to take place yesterday and as of today still no baby yet. She's going to have her 13 yr old daughter let me know when they baby comes. Please pray for .....well all of you know exactly what they all need. Darlene is 40 yrs old and this is her second child - she just recently remarried. Blessings are needed for everyone including her mom & dad - they've been living with them til their house gets ready - so everyone is very close. We will be grateful for a healthy, fighting little baby girl. I will let you know what happens.
