DUE DATE FOR OUR FRIEND   I guess we still have just under 6 hours for the baby to come on the due date.  Thanks, my friend for letting me post this sight-unseen.  I thought her friends would appreciate a current photo!  🙂  It feels like I’m going to be a Grandpa again!!

Anxiously awaiting!

Day 296

MILK which my friend sells to neighbors and friends.  He has at least 5 cows, a fish farm, and helps his father operate a tea stand.  They have a “cowboy” who leads the cows out of the family courtyard and out to eat grass.

CAMERIST IN ACTION

Camerist is an old term used for the photographer.  Delmar Penner took this photo in Kumarkhali, Bangladesh.  This is a photo of myself some villagers enjoying seeing their photo on my camera.

Day 293

A PIZZA HUT CELEBRATION was scheduled for my birthday in August, resulted in them doing their H.B. chant for me and giving me this bouquet of flowers.  I don’t think this is normal, but I think they remembered that I was a good friend of one of their workers who had just quit.  I had played football with him, and usually he gave me and Alice a free cup of coffee or ice cream when we came with friends.

Take time today to have some coffee with a friend.  Time is fleeting and precious.  Don’t put it off, tomorrow may be too late.

Coffee, birthday and flowers!
