What’s Been Happening Janet and Judy?

•Judy has completed eleven months of intense therapy. We are not sure if she graduated or was kicked out. The five day a week trips to Richmond have stopped. Thank goodness!

•Since we no longer have therapy in Richmond, we have started therapy at home. Planting 94 perennials in three days was great exercise. We purchased a short handle shovel for Judy and a garden bench. She digs, Janet plants, and Michelle complains. The dogs lazily lay under the shade trees and watch.

•We are now officially clowns! No comments please. What an experience. There were times that we drove Pastor Cavendish crazy but in the end, he was pleased. We are members of the “Life in Christ Circus” This was a twenty week course. The course was taught by Pastor Cavendish (Willy Nilly) who is a graduate of the “Life in Christ Circus” of Omaha, Nebraska and a graduate of the Red Skelton Clown School of Vincennes, Indiana. The course covered the basics of juggling (Judy is really good with one hand), clown makeup, clown magic (watch Michelle disappear), skit writing and performing. We had a great graduation with a HUGE attendance of family and friends. Thanks so much for being part of our day! In the words of Dick Hardel, “The clown has helped people look at themselves and wonder about life and what gives life throughout the ages and among many cultures,”

Graduation congratulations

Congratulations to the Tri-County North Class of 2015. Your future is just beginning. Make right choices and think about your impact on your surroundings.

Success runs in the family

It’s official! Alex Savage, daughter of Jim and Tammy Broughton was introduced as a member of the 2015 Ben-Gal cheer squad. We saw pictures! It’s not all fun and games. It takes a lot of hard work and brain power. Judy and I are trying out next year. We didn’t think that they were ready for us this year. It’s hard to jump high when using a cane. I don’t have an excuse. I just can’t jump. Maybe we can do the floor exercises! Congratulations, Alex!
