1. If you live anywhere near Staunton, Virginia you should think about attending “The Frontier Culture Museum,” annual beach party. Dee and I were there and enjoyed an evening of eating, drinking, dancing and sharing time with friends. Music was provided by “The Original Rhondels.”
2. Prayers for Chessy Prout, who, on Tuesday of this week, spoke out about her ordeal at St. Paul’s Prep School in Concord, New Hampshire.

“Brian DeRouen and his wife Kathleen run Alderson Hospitality House, a Catholic Worker (nonprofit) B&B in Alderson, West Virginia (http://www.aldersonhospitalityhouse.org/). They offer food and comfort to friends & family visiting women incarcerated at a nearby prison. On June 23, water began flooding into their home, giving Brian just enough time to get his family, their pets, and a handful of belongings to safety. They’re raising money to repair their home and get back on their feet after this devastating flood. They have a little more than $20,000 of the $40,000 they predict will be needed to rebuild. Won’t you help them? #WVfloodrelief #WVstrong

4. I have allergies. Dust, grass, pollen, ragweed, cats, grasses, mold, insects, etc. etc. I’ve learned to live with them and try not to let them disrupt my life. So, my “earth angel,” Dee, sent me this article, “Your Month-by-Month Guide to Allergies.” She is always thinking of me.
5. When Dee and I joined the Church of the Epiphany, the music director was a beautiful, spiritual person by the name of Judith Lewis. She is now with our Lord and I’m sure she is now part of the “Angel Choir.” (She could very well be the music director.) Her funeral was full of the music that she loved and was sung by all those whom she taught, guided and loved throughout her career at Epiphany. Her obituary.
6. “Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.”
7. Neil Diamond - “Red Red Wine.” This is one of my favorites.
Go over to "This Ain't the Lyceum,” where Kelly is hosting more takes.
