A MESSAGE FROM DICK

Judy Harloff and Mom on the right. (2007)

The following post will be the last one for a few days.

My Mom passed away last Monday night in a Richmond, VA hospital.

So I must go down there for a few days but I should be back by Tuesday.

My Mom was 87 years of age and led a very fulfilling life.Please say a prayer for her.
Thanks, Dick

KELLY-MILLER IN TEXAS

Circus In Port Lavaca

The Kelly Miller Circus rolled into Port Lavaca early on Thursday Morning for a one day performance. It promises to bring a smile and laughter to the kid in all of us. I was curious to see what goes on underneath the big top.
