To Save A Life Movie

Cleve and I attended a screening yesterday for a movie that has been put together by New Song Community Church in California. To Save a Life is a film that deals with the heavy issues facing our teens: suicide, drinking, broken homes and abortion, just to name a few. The student ministry team at Warren Baptist Church is spearheading an effort to bring this film to Augusta when it debuts nationwide in January. You can watch the trailer at If your church would be interested in helping to bring this movie to Augusta, call Grant Janik at (706) 860-1586.

Cleve's 55th Birthday

Cleve's 55th birthday was on Sunday, and I had a present waiting for him this morning. It was a gift bag with some carefully chosen items just for Cleve. The "Don't Forget My Senior Discount" visor will be perfect for his trips to McDonald's after table tennis matches. The Loud N Clear (as seen on TV) personal sound amplifier will help Cleve hear because his ears just aren't workin' like they used to. That's what 32 years of radio headphones will do to ya! Last but not least, I gave Cleve some Just for Men Touch of Gray for obvious reasons. Some friends gave him the "Cat Lover" coffee mug after his yearlong attempt to rid his house of a beloved cat. The Elmo was one of those "extras" since Cleve despises the furry creature. Not to worry, Evan will love playing with the Elmo balloon!
