We are thankful that the insurance we have had covers this. This treatment is the last one approved before we move to a new plan. God has provided wonderfully for us through the insurance plan she was under at the Sheriff's office! God provided it when we didn't even know we were going to need it and it was the right plan with the right provisions!
Please pray that Patti's new treatment will lead to even more lasting results!!
Forever in Him,

Anyway, Mike and Patti, Mike's brother Lynn, and June (Meemo) went to The Nana Grill at the top of the Anatole Hotel to enjoy their special menu for the week. While we were there, we were treated to a fantastic lightning show during dinner and a wonderful view of downtown Dallas at night.
Anyway, a great weekend. We just don't see you guys enough!!!
One funny note - when we were driving up we noticed something unusual out in a field between Ralls and Crosbyton. A large silver-back gorilla was standing guard over a field. Still haven't figured this one out! Apparently, just a farmer up to some monkey-business!
Summertime, summertime, sum, sum, summertime...
Summertime is the big birthday time of the year for the grandkids. Aidan is in June, Cole in July, and Cadence in August. Of course, that will soon be changing with new babies coming in October and January. Anyway, after we got back from Thailand, we got to go to Louisiana to enjoy a joint birthday party for Cadence and Cole (Bubby).
Bubby had his own and, in typical first birthday fashion, enjoyed it immensely!
The kids had fun!
Cadence got a cool rain outfit!
And, Stephen and Bubby got acquainted!!

There was always something beautiful to see in Chiang Mai and the surrounding countryside. This was a waterfall where we had a picnic.
This was an even bigger waterfall we visited a few days later.
We wondered where all the water for this one was coming from, so we looked around and, sure enough, we found the source of all that water......
We also had a blast at the Chiang Mai Zoo. Below are the animals we got to see and, in the case of the Giraffes, feed!!
There are two videos that I want to pass along. The first was taken when Mike Jr. and I were out playing golf. We had the opportunity to feed some fish in a pond. It was fun! Watch what happens!
The second video was taken in Japan as Patti and I were waiting to ride the bullet train back to Tokyo from a tour of Mount Fuji. I always wonder why we don't have things like this in Texas!?!
During the tour in Japan it was a very rainy and foggy day. The picture on the left is what we were supposed to see on the tour. The picture on the right is what we did see!!
Fortunately the clouds lifted a little later and we got to see the mountain briefly.
But, enough of Japan!
What we really came to see was family. You really don't understand how much you miss and appreciate your kids and your grandkids until you go to visit them. We had an absolutely wonderful time throughout the trip. God blessed us with easy travel and safety and the ability financially and timewise to be able to go. Patti covered more and different kinds of terrain than I think she thought possible, but did it with ease and joyful determination. But in the end, this is what we came for and, what we enjoyed the most.
Mike, Morgan, and Aidan - Thanks for a wonderful time! We will never forget it!
