Foods which Larry used to eat all the time and won't eat now:

Potato Salad

Ground Beef

Red Beans and Rice

Green Beans.

This is in addition to foods he can't chew or can't swallow or foods which are too spicy.

I am at a loss as to what to offer him that may be nutritious and easy to eat.

Pray for Blane

In our area there are lots of signs saying 'Pray for Blane'. I googled it and found some very interesting stuff:

Blane Baxley has leukemia and spent time at Shands.

I also found a relationship with Tim Tebow (the great Univ Florida football player). He was an intensely Christian. He may have been borne in the Philipines where his people served as missionaries.

Further he has founded a hospital in the Philipines.  He seemed to also be a friend of Blane.

Ellie proved unable to edit my last post. She solved that problem by making both of us administrators.  Great.

Mary's Gift

Mary Joseph comes often to our Friends Meeting. At this one she was sick and chose not to go for fear of infecting the rest of us.  But she was impeled to come to the door where she give one lovely blanket to Ellie and another to me.

My blanket had in bold was the words of 'Amazing Grace':

Amazing grace, How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now I am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved.
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come,
'Tis grace has brought me safe thus far
And grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease
I shall possess within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

When we've been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun,
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we've first begun.

Young radio officer Larry Clayton beside the radio shack of the Cuba Victory, his second to last merchant vessel. They were headed to Rio in 1945.


'Al Fin' (at last) I've reached this  exalted position in life: Great Expectations: the Bible calls us 'Oaks of Righteousness' (Isaiah 61:3); in the face of such 'honor' one must feel humble.

Heart Failure

Heart failure is an ambiguous term. To many people it is synonymous with 'congestive heart failure', but this is the more common term (keep it pumping).
