There's no more pretending about our free market economy
Some video from our Washington, D.C. visit

Ask super-wife what she was doing twenty-five years ago today

It was a hot day twenty-five years ago in Lansing when Gladys and I were walking from garage sale to   P6060051 garage sale in our old neighborhood and she was starting to feel contractions.  She was getting ready to deliver our son, Justin, who came early on June 10.

We've been in Washington, D.C. for the past several days helping him celebrate his birthday.  His apartment on Capitol Hill has been a base for visiting sites we haven't seen before. 

This time we went to the Food & Wine Festival at National Harbor, more exploration of Georgetown, checked out the new visitors' center at the U.S. Capitol and we had plenty of good conversation.

God has blessed us with two great kids, Justin and Krista and a great son-in-law, Adam Jones. 

Justin tomorrow's special.  Happy Birthday!
