Westward Ho Folks

This blog chronicled (via a diary and photos) a trip that Terry and his wife Stefi took across the U.S. singing in nursing homes. The trip has since concluded and we are now living full-time for the Lord in a mission, serving the needy and homeless.

We Suffered A Minor Setback

We have suffered a minor setback in the form of our digital camera breaking. Luckily it is under warranty and has been sent to the factory. I called them and they said a 2-4 week turn around. However, in the meantime I will continue to post, only without pictures until our camera is back. Our next show is not until July 3rd, so hopefully (with prayer) it will be back by then.On a side note from our tour, we have an addition to our family. One day while taking a walk, Queenie (our "dogter") began to smell with vigor in the grass. Stefi investigated and found an abandoned nest of wild bunnies. It recently had poured down rain and the temperature was hovering in the low 50's, so the bunnies we extremely cold and displaced from their next. We did the only humane thing, and that was to bring (all five of) them in. Some were smaller than the others, and less developed. We began an every two hour vigil of giving them milk with an eye dropper. Unfortunately, over the course of a few days, all but one has passed on. We had picked out a favorite and named him Runty...because he was the obvious runt of the litter. Runty really took to Terry, so he immediately became his surrogate father. The one that survived we have named Lucky, and "he" seems to be the heartiest of all. He now lives in a wonderful habitat full of his natural elements. We may just keep him for a while to get him over the hump, then release him. Or, we may take him on the road as our newest pet....stay tuned. Footnote: Seems nature took its course, and all the bunnies have since passed on
