It is hurry up and wait to get the window repaired in my car and get it back.  I feel helpless not having the car here.

Tonight is our monthly Ladies Fellowship at church and provided my car is back, I will be going to that.  If the car isn't ready, I will need to call someone for a ride.

Rain, rain and more rain is the prediction for us today and for several more days.  This summer when it is hot and dry and we need rain, I will have to remember these days.

We were watching a program in TV last night and this interesting information came up, so I had to research on Google of course.  I did not know this before, did you?

Trivia:  Did you know that George Washington was NOT the first President of the US?  He was the first elected President, but there were several before him.


1 Peyton Randolph 

2 Henry Middleton 
3 Peyton Randolph 
4 John Hancock 
5 Henry Laurens 
6 John Jay 
7 Samuel Huntington 
8 Thomas McKean 
9 John Hanson 
10 Elias Boudinot 
11 Thomas Mifflin 
12 Richard Henry Lee 
13 John Hancock[g] 
14 Nathaniel Gorham 
15 Arthur St. Clair 
16 Cyrus Griffin 

These were the presidents of the "Continental Congress", who you could say were the first "real presidents". Their office was created by the articles of confederation rather then the Constitution of the United States which took quite a while to come to fruition.


Have a happy Tuesday!
