Thanks, everyone, for your prayers and kind words and concern. Arlen is still in ICU, but his life is no longer threatened. Now it's a matter of a slow recovery.

Care to play along?

Oh Relyn..here I am again, your ragamuffin bloggy friend......I could use a little prayer....I know you have your plate full, but, I could use a little "ressurection" over here on my end...

...Sorry to ask *again*...but, there's something about you that makes me think it's ok to ask.....

blessings....
