Spelling Words for week of July 6, 2009

Hi everyone,  Hope you enjoyed your July 4th weekend.  I was in Sausalito and
was able to see some local fireworks there. On Sunday, I went on a long hike, and
now I'm feeling very tired and sore.  I want to recommend the movie "Up" and it
is appropriate for kids and adults.  It is in local theaters and it is animated, 
funny, and has adult emotional content.  Even if you don't understand all the
spoken language, you will get the message.  
I spoke to Richard today, and he had a good trip back East for his father's 
memorial service and to visit his 95 year old Aunt.  He is feeling better and going in for a treatment on Tuesday.  We all hope he continues to do well.
