William wanted to back the car out of the driveway yesterday. He did a great job!!! Maybe he will want to get his drivers permit soon.—–There was a big rain storm here last night. The electricity went off sometime in the night. In the morning, the food in the freezer was still frozen but the food and the air in the fridge was not as cold as normal. The power came back on at about 9:30 AM. This time we had a flashlight with batteries. I would like to get a radio that has a crank to generate power. Then we wouldn’t feel so isolated in a storm, we could tell if it was only our neighborhood or a larger area that was without power.—–Maggie turns 16 this week. I wonder if she will want her ears pierced? She also could have her drivers permit.
