Geographica: Bodies of Water

     Did you have a good Mother's Day?  We had such a sweet day.  Bryan bought me a new coffee maker.  Arden, five, wrote out a card, carefully lettered "DOD," which seems to be how he was spelling MOM until his sister caught him and helped him get it right.  Kara, owner of the Odd Jobs business, included in her card a "super-prize," two free odd jobs.  You know I'll take advantage of that gift.  Our own dear Geo Quiz Girl wrote me a sweet note and bought me a plant for the garden.  We had a rousing round of croquet, and we ate, naturally.  Never forget the food.  It is so sweet to see how they love.
