Jenny's Recent Visit

Today's song is New World In The Morning by Roger Whittaker, released in 1975.

Our daughter arrived on Thursday afternoon and stayed with us until Sunday afternoon. We had a lot of fun while she was here. She brought along her ultrasound scan of the baby growing inside of her. She's feeling better right now in her pregnancy, but she tires easily.

Jenny stays current on all the latest information about her condition. She is so absorbed with everything involving the baby and herself. Young women today have so much information available to them. It was much different thirty years ago when Sherry was pregnant with Jenny.

Jenny asked me to read her journal and I made an entry into it as well. Someday her child will be old enough to read and understand what friends and family felt about the child as it was growing within our daughter's body.

This week I give a long speech at my Twin Oaks Toastmasters club. This will be my fourth presentation towards my ATM-Bronze educational award. The topic must pertain to a technical presentation to a nontechnical audience. I've been working on it for some time now and I will be ready to give that 10-12 minutes speech on Wednesday.

In early March, our club will hold another Speech Marathon where I will give another speech from the same advanced manual as the one for this Wednesday. I'm also going to give a "special topic" presentation for the membership that day. I already have the second presentation completed, but I need to start working on the speech portion of that upcoming special meeting.

This week I complete my online project management course and then I'll take the test on the course. It's been a great refresher for me and the instructor is rated very high, in my humble opinion. I may take another online course from him soon.

While Jenny was here, she asked me to scan this artist rendition of me (shown below) that used to be displayed in our first house when she was a young child. This caricature was drawn at California's Disneyland on February 2, 1972 during a trip there with my friend, Bill Artus.

Update: I added a Quicktime 7 video segment of the artist drawing that image.
