Good morning to you,
No birthdays today.
Eyeglasses for Peru
Each year, on the medical campaign to Cusco, Peru, we give out hundreds of pairs of prescription eyeglasses, reading glasses, and sunglasses. Each year we have to replenish what is given out. After this past campaign, we are still in pretty good shape on reading glasses and adult sunglasses. However, if you have some that you are not using any longer, we would be happy to add them to our stock. We always need prescription eyeglasses. A greater number of eyeglasses in stock means that we have a greater chance of having the correct prescription for our patients. During this past campaign, we ran out of sunglasses for children. So, what I am asking for are any prescription eyeglasses that you no longer use. If you have any children's sunglasses or are interested in purchasing some, we could use them as well. If you have any reading glasses or sunglasses, that are in good condition, we would be happy to add them to our present stock, but do not go purchase readers or adult sunglasses.
I have put a box in the foyer, next to the hospitality desk, for the eyeglasses. I will be collecting the eyeglasses until October 12. Thank you.
In our adult classes the week of October 2, there will be an envelope available for you to “shower” (contribute) Slava and Sveta with money for gifts for their new baby, Timothy.

Heard a Carl Hurley this morning.
He was talking this morning about saying the wrong thing and immediately knowing you had said the wrong thing. One time he and his wife were going somewhere and his wife had gotten ready and walked through the room. Carl spoke up and said don’t you have anything better looking than that to wear? He knew immediately he had said the wrong thing. He said she had a pair of shoes to match every dress and he had only one pair, the pair he had on.
There was this sheriff who was running for reelection. He was campaigning and went to this older lady’s house. She didn’t know who he was and he asked her for her vote. She told him she would vote for him because people had told her anybody would be better than the one they had now.
I hope you have a good day.
