During this past year we had 8 worn out American flags donated to the troop for "proper" disposal in a campfire. I had no idea what that meant since when I was young in the 1960s, you could be put in jail for burning an American flag. When Camp Daniel Boone asked for flag donations for a "respectful" flag retirement ceremony, I brought ours. We supplied nearly all the flags for the impressive event.

With all this farm life, grandma's thumb is finally turning green. For the first time after 45 years in Florida she was able to get an orchid to bloom a second time. This is the one Carrie gave us on her visit a year ago.

We plan to finish this week the ceilings on the porches. We had to go to Bubba's Cracker Saw Mill in Williston to get the trailer full of cypress tongue and groove. Since we will eventually glass in the two porches in the back with the great views, we needed to install insulation first. We'll probably just screen in the porches first, but we already have them set up for air conditioning when the glassing in is done. Gma was in charge of helping to measure and attach the tongue to the grooves, and staining and finishing the boards before they were installed. Doesn't the finished ceiling look great?

Summer just graduated from high school with her cousins Hailey and Hunter. The gold medal she is wearing says that she was summa cum laude, 5th in a graduating class of over 600. You can see the happy family and the extended family that came to cheer them on. Afterwards we took over a Denny's restaurant to celebrate--well, half of the restaurant.
