Español! Ben! Newsletters! Grandgirls! 1.4.23

Tim A. Cummins @ 9:21 pm  

I was a Republican for over forty years. What the party has become now is unrecognizable and just stupid.

It rained almost all night long. Over 3.25″.

Always learning new words.



Watered my indoor garden.

Studied Spanish while I walked 1.78 miles.


Had a good talk with my buddy Ben Birdsong about the conference I’m going to this weekend. Hopefully, K will feel well enough to come with me. It’s about three hours to get there.

I followed a garbage truck that leaked oil on the wet asphalt. I thought the patterns were interesting and beautiful.

Broken mirror on the side of the road.

Cleaned out my trunk so I could store the supplies for the conference.

I put all the Christmas gifts and supplies in garbage bags and put them in my storage area at the mission.

Got the newsletters folded and stuffed and in the mail.

I’m starting to listen to my buddy Tito’s bilingual sermons again. I’d listened to them all months ago. Going back to catch up with the ones I haven’t heard. He preaches a few sentences in English then translates them into Spanish. It’s interesting to see how much closer I am now to how he translates and what I think he’s going to say.

Both he and his wife had Covid over the Christmas break. Fortunately, the symptoms were mild. His son Sammy, however, had to have emergency surgery. Glad they are all ok now.


Gassed up my car on the way to the mission. Checked the fluids.

Had fun with the girls at the mission. I told all the kids getting off the bus that the party will start as soon as they get home tomorrow. SO glad that Kathy and Ashley will both be there to help me.

We had a good FaceTime with my Mom!

Took the girls to McDonalds and then to the park for a picnic. I told them over Christmas break that my goal was two words: Fun and Excitement. We are continuing the tradition.

Listened to Tito’s sermon as well as radio from Spain.

Full Sun Moon.

On the way home, I stopped at Walmart to pick up some distilled water. It wasn’t available at the Walmart near my house where I pick up my groceries.

Just keep going.
