Links Lift Us Up Where We Belong

Grammy passed away last Friday. She would have been 89 in June. She lived a good, long life, twenty years of it without Poppy, who died in 1987. The funeral is tomorrow in the city of my birth, Brownsville, TX. Prayers would be appreciated for my mother and her side of the family. We are a big family and a close-knit one.

Grammy is awesome. And she gets to be with Jesus now. So that's good.
She won't have to watch her game shows on mute up there, because her hearing will be great now.

Here are some quality links to get your week started off right . . .

Happy surfing
