What a week this has been.The desert is a whole new thing for me.Not only is it's appearance
strange to me but the sun and wind are sooo
different from home. It doesn't seem so hot because there is usually a good wind but ,let me tell you,it will flat burn you up. Even 30 sunblock doesn't keep you from burning. If there is no wind you feel like you are on a pit slow roasting!
I went to the store on Tonto today and while I was there I meet a lady by the name of Liz Hayes(I think).She pulled up on her work horse type buggy(sorry Julie) and as she got out ,I noticed she walked like Julie so I asked if she was a stroke victim. Of course she said that she was so I went into my spill about what we are doing.Much to my surprise,she told me that come September ,she and her trusted dogs will leave Lucerne
Valley in her buggy(sorry Julie) and make their
ways to Washington D.C. in protest of senior citizens(which she is ) insurance and health benefits
.You go Ms. Liz Hayes!!!May God watch over you.
I am constantly surprised by people.There are so many people who have all the reasons they need to sit quietly and let life pass them by but they don't! No sir.They don't give up.So I say here's to all of the Julies and Marys and Lizs
in the world.If you can keep going...we can too.I love you all and admire you.
To those of us who have our health,please do all you can to help.People need us to be aware of how devastating a stroke can be to all whose
lives they touch.Help us to make life a little easier for someone who suffers a stroke and gets the immediate attention they need.Through awareness and research ,a stroke victims life and the lives of their
loved ones can be so much better.Ok

' and wish you and Trevor the very best. We will see you on Friday.Love you. To everyone else,I hope you have a great week and ...I love you too!
