Not all people are lovable, but when we find someone difficult for us to love, it is often because they remind us of something within ourselves that we don't like. (Betty J. Eadie, Embraced By The Light, 6 July)


Melva and I visited with Cyndi at her apartment in Bethesda on Saturday afternoon. For the first time we saw the replacement for her over-sized couch and chair that she sold before they built an a/c machinery cabinet near the door into her apartment. She also added a futon. Now two people can take a nap while watching the Redskins. We are pleased that she was able to put her apartment back in order.

The awful murder in Prince George's county, Maryland that you may have heard about on national television news happened at a rented house around five to ten minutes drive from our house. I didn't realize this until I looked at a little map in the paper this morning. As a matter of fact yesterday we drove on Auburn Avenue and passed the corner into the neighborhood. Two women and two small children were shot by a forty-three year old man and an eighteen year old woman from Texas over some kind of marijuana drug deal. There was no running water in the house and the house was full of trash and worse. Investigators wore hazmat gear. The two suspects are in custody. There is probably much more to this story than I'm relating here.

Life goes on, except for six people and their families.
