I had picked up my mail yesterday and my primary ballot was there so I filled that out. Shall be an interesting election! Cleaned out some old old paperwork. Paid bills. Made a donation to my friend Greg Walden's campaign for US Congress. Out of the 5 Congressmen, he's the only conservative congressman from Oregon! And both our senators are Dems. Greg stands up for our military and veterans and their medical and benefits and the 2nd Amendment. GO GREG!!! 

Later dinner was reruns, chair, wine, and TV.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Monday. Ciao.

Brothers and Sisters Day
             My wedding day June 14, 1975... L-R Mom, Betty, me, Marion
Brothers and Sisters Day is a day to cherish your siblings. Sure, there are times when you love your brothers and sisters. And, there's times when you want to disown them. All in all, having a brother and/or a sister or two, is invaluable. The older you get, the more you learn to appreciate them.
Celebrate Brothers and Sisters Day by touching them in some way.  A card or a phone call is appropriate for those who are separated by too many miles. A visit, or sharing a meal together, is a great way to enjoy this special day.  
Don't have a brother or sister? Become a "Big Brother" or Big Sister". Chances are, there is an organization in your area. And, they need your help.
Brothers and Sisters Day is similar to National Sibling Day, held on April 10th.
