For unknown reason my I-phone just crashed and dumped all of my information that was on it. I am a Technological Dimwit when it comes to these things and unfortunately I was not regularly backing things up on ITunes like I was supposed to. This is my fault of course but I plead ignorance…..because I was really ignorant! At any rate I have lost all my contact information, all past text messages, a nice bunch of photos that I really wanted, and who knows what else. So for those of you who happen to have my number and have to contact me, please include your name in the message so I know who I am talking to. I never took the time to memorize your numbers because your name would always come up. Made it easy. Too Easy! So if you haven’t called or texted me in a while please do so so that I can re-record your name in my phone!!! Man I am so disappointed in myself. Oh well! Hope you are having a wonderful summer. It has been record-setting dry and hot here in the Pacific Northwest. Yuck! Not why I moved here. I love the green and fresh air that rain brings with it. “And this too will change” which was written by a very wise man a long long time ago.

I am happy to say that to those of you who may have tried to reach me through my website email I can now access it. I am also deeply sorry to say that I haven’t been able to do so for about the last 5 years. I apologize to those of you who were possibly waiting for an answer and never received it. I just did not know that your email was there. The website used to forward my emails to my home email and I read them through there. Then I noticed they stopped forwarding a while (5 years) back. I tried to access the emails directly but in no way could remember passwords and login information for the life of me. I am not the most organized person in the world and I certainly tech challenged to the nth degree. Needless to say when my good friend Mark helped me solve this problem I was in shock. I opened up my webmail and found a ton of unopened/unanswered emails date back a long time. I missed many opportunities for important gigs. I even got contacted twice from Americas Got Talent producers for a video I did with my former Seattle Police Officers a Capella group. Boy are they gonn’a be mad!! There were about 10 different wedding jobs that I missed out on, not to mention countless other great gig opportunities, Snoqualmie Casino especially. I hope you didn’t think I was not contacting you out of arrogance or indifference or even laziness. I just simply had no idea you were trying to reach me. I will be much more diligent in communicating with my friends from this point on. Again I apologize, please forgive me.

I was going to wait on this but I can no longer hold back. My nephew has four healthy, active, beautiful children. Approximately 2 weeks ago his eldest son (10 years old) got sick and had typical symptoms of a bad flu virus. One morning, a couple days into it, he woke up and could not lift his head, nor move his arms and legs. He was basically paralyzed from the neck down. He was taken to Children’s Hospital in Minneapolis for treatment and they were scrambling to find out exactly what it was. The doctors were looking at possibly a sever case of Mononuecliosis (sp?), Guillen Barre Syndrome (sp?) also known as French Polio, Meningitis and just about everything they could think of. Numerous spinal taps and tests were failing to give them an answer. Needless to say prayer chains and groups were started immediately by family and friends to pray fro this little guy. He had times where he was having hard times breathing, he couldn’t hold down food and he just wanted to go home. My nephew and his wife and grandparents were holding round the clock vigils by his bedside so he wouldn’t be left alone. The support from their local church family was incredible. Hope was always present but after 14 days and he still could not hold his head up or even move his legs, they still did not know what was causing this. I’m leaving out many parts of this but I’ll try to keep this short. Children’s Hospital Doctors (who see just about everything across the board) just scratched their heads. The decision was made to transfer him to one of the most world reknown facilities in the world, The Mayo Clinic, in Rochester, Minnesota. Gregory (his name) was admitted and everyone was hoping, praying, crossing fingers and just about anything, that this team of specialists would be able to find an answer. They actually had not started any treatment but were asking Gregory and the family all sorts of questions to try and find out what was going on. My nephew, who was probably emotionally spent, stepped out to get a haircut while Gregory’s mom stayed with him. About thirty minutes later when he returned to the hospital room Gregory had a big smile on his face. His Mom told my nephew (her husband ) Gregory wants to show you something. My nephew though maybe things were starting to turn for Gregory. Maybe wiggle a toe or a finger, maybe even be able to support his own head without pillows on the side. Gregory lifted both of his hands in the air above his head, wiggled his head back and forth like he was watching a tennis match and even lifted his legs high in the air. PRAISE GOD! PRAISE GOD! This all happened in less than 30 minutes time. No new treatment had been started by the Mayo Clinic….nothing! I can see if it was a gradual thing over a few days, weeks or even months that you might say this thing was running its course and the body was healing itself, along with medical treatments…….but this was almost immediate! From lying paralyzed for 2 weeks to lifting your legs and hands up in the air????? Buddy don’t you ever try to convince me that Miracle don’t happen.!!!!! I know they do and my family just had one happen. WOW!! PRAISE GOD PRAISE GOD PRAISE GOD!!!!!
