June 19th is Mona's ....um, okay, I'll tell you. This will be her 60th and that's a big one for ladies. I may aim to begone that day, trouble is she is my driver. Still, I look back to when we were 27-me and she was 22. This was when we were married. 38 years have gone by, really great years and a couple with a few rough moments. But, the Lord has sincerely bless us.
Currently, we have a larger household as extras have joined our clan. This can make doing the dishes an all day affair and the laundry....it can become a no-trespassing zone until it can be divided up into white, colors, canned goods, cats & dogs, and items that were originally headed for the dump. Due to my color-blindness, I'm kept away from the laundry. I mixed too many whites with the colors.
For our friends and family, we have just received word that our sister and best friend, Vicki Williams is now dancing on the golden streets of Heaven. So, I'm asking for your prayers to be with Jim Williams, my brother and best friend, and their grown children, now together with their Dad, as the family comforts each other. The joy is in that Vicki got up there before us, but still there is the sadness that only comes from realizing it might be sometime before we see each other again. Another gifted musician and singer added to the Heavenly music one can hear in the right moment, on a beautiful spring morning and peace surrounds. We love you, Vicki. Jim and kids, you'll be in our family prayers. I love you, guy.
Now, let's move to the NEWS SITE:
WASHINGTON FREE BEACON: Media attacks President Trump for his referring to the youth gang MS-13 as "animals". At first they accused him of referring to all immigrants as animals, but he was replying to a direct question concerning this terrible and violent gang of Southern California and other locations. Murder, rape, sex trafficking and violent assault this gang is a plague, with a motto that simply says, " Rape, Control, Kill". (This is MS-13 and it appears the media desires to defend them, possibly out of fear of retribution.)
JERUSALEM ONLINE: United Nations Human Rights Council has voted to investigate Gaza Death Toll ( I say shame on them. Have they investigated Syria for murdering the Kurds, Iran for murdering so many inside and at their borders, or have they probed Turkey for the actions they took during the coup attempt?) But, Israel rejects their resolution. ALSO- Massive anti-Israel rally held in Istanbul, Turkey, with hundreds of thousands claimed to have attended by the Turkish Government. ALSO- Kuwait calls for deployment of an international force to Gaza, but Israel condemned the proposal. ( Just how many countries would want an international force on their border?) ALSO- UN Human Rights Chief announced, "Gazans caged in 'toxic slum' by Israel." (But, it was the protesters who attacked the border, setting fires to thousands of tires, threw Molotov cocktails and fly kites carrying kite bombs across the border. The Human Rights Council at the UN has been biased against Israel for sometime and the UN should look into this, since it is their agency.) ALSO- HAMAS issues call for more violence along Gaza Border.
WASHINGTON FREE BEACON: "Fed's spend $333,210 studying bars along the Mexico Bar." (Was there a written test afterward?) ALSO- "Trump Administration will deny federal funds to clinics that discuss abortion."
CLARION PROJECT NEWS: "Why do Anti-Semitic U.S. Islamist's Get a Free-Pass?" "If anti-Muslim rhetoric was substituted , they would be all 'Red-Flagged' immediately." ALSO- Jihadist cult member of MOA ( Muslims of America) has reportedly filed to run for Congress in the State of Alaska, hoping to gain the support of the liberal democrats.

That's all the news for today, Folks. Interesting, the sun has come out and a spring day is upon us. I love my valley, especially at times like this. The snow at the top of the peaks remain and now it glows under the sun. The light breeze keeps the accursed flying beast insects down, as they hide in the trees and under the leaves upon the ground. Good time for a walk.
I will take my leave now and wish you all a fantastic day. May the Good Lord Bless all of you. BILL
