A Busy Weekend

The first snow hit our farm and the lovely ranges of Blue Mounds. It didn't stick but temperatures went down into the 20s. Winter is coming...

How sweet it is... those of us who supported Barack Obama are basking in the glow, but knowing we all, together, Democrat, Republican, Green, and Independent, must now pull together. We have our agenda ahead of us: jobs and the economy, the war, healthcare, and the environment. Remember, it's "WE" the people!

At one of our favorite restaurants, the Blue Spoon, on the Wisconsin River at Prairie du Sac.

Off to the art museum in Milwaukee to see the interactive art show -- so we "interacted" as Sabine is drawing a picture on the wall.

Sitting at one of the Milwaukee Art Museum's windows that look out onto Lake Michigan.

Our friend, Adrian, who invited us to Scotland a few years ago came to visit us and attend the Deming Conference in Madison. We saw a lot of old friends from the quality improvement days... (have twenty years possibly passed?). Here is a pic with Adrian, Peter Scholtes and me.

On Sunday, I gave the opening prayer for fellow "Veterans For Peace" at Forest Hills Cemetery in Madison.

Here is a shot of nearly 5,000 headstones. Each one representing a military man or woman killed in either Iraq or Afghanistan. If we were to add the civilian "collateral" deaths it would most likely circle the city.

You can see more photographs on Facebook at:

Sabine is doing well. We have another surgery in two weeks and we will have to decided after that whether or not to pursue a "graft" or stay with her tunnel catheter for dialysis purposes.

Hope everyone is well... take care of yourselves and remember the key to aging: "Keep your head cool, your feet warm, your bowels open and trust in the Lord."
