Joan,

I dunno what you mean by your age shows but what I see is a glow of happiness....

Joan, thanks for posting your current photo!  I keep mine current, but time passes so quickly! 

It's true that time and age change us.  I view getting older as a privilege, that many don't get.  I respect and honor folks as they grow older, because I know there is much to learn, and there is so much that happens in  life.  It isn't easy, and people deserve kindness.

We live within view of Mt. St.Helens.  Here are photos from our visit there last year.  The volcano is not visible from my house, but I see it every day while driving.  It gives a sense of wonder, the unfathomable age of the earth, the inner workings of our planet  It's a young volcano, the visible dome is only 2,200 years old.  The pyramids are far, far older than that.  There were people in the American long, long before St. Helens began to form.

My avatar is 73 years old.  I may post my up to date photo one of these days.

Randy, that is the trouble, my avatar is only four years old. These past few years have been a real challenge. I hope my mental stamina continues, even as my physical strength declines.

Randy - among the fatalities was a volcanologist who was doing some monitoring. Apparently the lateral blast was unexpected.

Joan, my kids "facebooked" some photos of me (with grandkids), and I was shocked to see how old I appeared! Like yours, my A/N avatar is several years old. Still, we're young at heart, right?!

Bertold, I coincidentally just finished reading a book about the Mt. St. Helens eruption. It detailed the deaths of the 57 people. Some were just plain stupid (Harry Truman), but most were considered to be in the "safe" zones. The magnitude of the eruption and mudflow was greater than predicted.

Daniel, my persimmons must be of the Yates variety. They look like yours--same size, too. I lost the top out of a peach tree yesterday in a horrific storm. I'm saddened.

Daniel, I didn't know you had bamboo.  If I get more land, I intend to grow it, and won't contain it.  I never thought it was as hard to control as people seem to think.  I hope I have a chance to find-out.

Joan, is see you have your hair back.

Your greenhouse sounds wonderful.  It makes for a sheltered eden in the cold weather.

Joan Denoo, July 4, 2017. My age shows!
