One of the drawbacks of aging is the fact that you (at least ME) no longer multi-task as well as you once did. I've been getting the College Crazies program at church (my baby) up and running, and I've created a blog for the kids this year which has gotten most of my attention lately. Let's see if I can catch you up on the happenings at the Moon zoo.

Most current excitement is the phone call I got from Alyson this afternoon. She had gotten a call from her landlord while she was at work telling her that someone had kicked in her front door. (He was in the building showing one of the apartments to prospective tenants and discovered it.) They broke into the main door to the building and then kicked in her front door. So far the only thing she's positive is missing is her laptop and the backpack it goes in. Worrisome thing is that now they have all of her personal info. She's going to change bank account numbers, etc., but is still a bit concerned about identity theft. Also, she (and her mother) no longer feel that she is safe coming home at 3 a.m. like she does when she works the late shift and closes. Prayers for her safety would be greatly appreciated.

The weekend of September 8 & 9 was Roy's Cousins' Reunion in Decatur, Texas. These are the cousins on his Mom's side. They hadn't been together in many, many years, so it was great for all of them to get to catch up. I loved hearing stories of their "younger days." Roy's Granddad was a Baptist Preacher in Decatur for 40 years or so, so we went to see the old church building on Saturday, and on Sunday morning we visited the congregation that has evolved from his original church. They're in a new building, but they have a painting of his Grandfather in the Narthex, as well as his Granddad's actual pulpit. Roy's sister is an ordained minister, so it was fun to be able to take her picture standing at his pulpit.

One of the wonderful college girls from church stayed with our critters. I know she took great care of them because the critters weren't any more excited to see us than if we had only been gone for an hour or so. It is wonderful to know that we are not glued to the house anymore.

This past weekend was a very enjoyable concert...part of the Folk Series at Ft. Concho. One of the young men from our church is a song writer, and he started this about a year and a half ago. Once each quarter there is a concert with him and a "top name" song writer. It's a lot of fun and a wonderful cultural event for San Angelo.

Weather is hovering in the upper 80's and lower 90's during the daytime. We haven't had any rain lately, but things are still green from all the rain we had earlier. I have my fall decorations out, so I'm looking forward to cooler weather.

Will hush now before your eyes give out from all the reading.
Lovies and huggies to all!!!
