First, a big round or applause to my grandson Matt. He won a 1st Place Blue Ribbon Medal in the Hendricks County Solo and Ensemble Competition on Saturday. His performance included the song "Candle on the Water" from the Walt Disney movie Pete's Dragon. I wasn't able to attend, but hope to see the video real soon.


Second, my son Jeff, a Staff Sergeant in the US Army, has just completed ANOC training at Ft. Sill. He was awarded the Distinguished Honor Student Award in his class. Here he is pictured in Iraq about 2 years ago. It is one of my favorite photos of him.
