Why the Redwood Forest slideshow?

Judy had always loved trees, and in 2008 we spent some time among the California Redwoods. Some of the ingredients in Judy's chemo cocktail were derived from trees (not Redwoods but Yews). We always knew that Judy loved the trees, and the trees got their chance to repay her affection.

Something shameless ...

... but nevertheless beneficial:

As you know, Judy works for MHMR, which is publicly funded. Make a long story short, there's a lot of money on the line to fund some client programs that are really dear to Judy. A local bank has started some Internet contest in which people can vote for their favorite community program. If you go to

https://www.citybankonline.com/community-rewards/vote.html (just scroll down and find Lubbock Regional MHMR)

and vote for Lubbock Regional MHMR, you can help Judy's agency to expand some of the programs already in place. As I said, this is shameless, but it was important enough for Judy to admonish me several times to vote (which you can do more than once until mid-December), so here you go.

From this post you can tell that Judy is getting more and more back to her own self: worrying about others. The reality of it all is that things are not that simple. It seems that the chemo is starting to affect her hair. Unfortunately, we can't just all vote that it won't fall out.

More in a day or two.

I'll be happy to vote every day. It looks like your shameless plug is working, they're in the lead! Buy Judy a cute hat and give her a big hug from me!
