Dear Family and Friends,

Now that we have Email and internet connection back we have no excuse for not writing and bringing you up to date on our doings and happenings.

On Saturday the 18th at 4 PM we had a monstrous storm and the lightning was getting closer and closer to us. I, Tom, was in a hurry to leave the house for quartet practice and managed to unplug our computers and that was all. While I was gone a tremendous crack and bang occurred, and Corinne said it sounded like it hit in our attic, it was so close. Well, it did affect our house and many other houses in the neighborhood. Our TV was put out and had to be repaired, telephone was cooked, must replace it. The modem that controls the phone and internet also burnt out and that is under order. All the keys in the key of “F” on the organ were knocked out. I discovered that the lightning had hit the top of a pine tree behind our house, took a narrow strip of bark off, all the way to the ground. The tree is OK, but sadly, our pawpaw (papaya) tree, heavily laden with developing fruit, broke in half and fell to the ground – so there went some future papaya for us and our neighbors. Well, Tom Bittner, one of our maintenance men here, used his Sunday afternoon to help all of us in any way he could. Thank you, Tom.

I’m sure many of you are wondering what these Palmers are up to, and are praying for God’s direction and blessing in our lives. We do appreciate every one of you and covet His blessings for you.

On April 19th we celebrated our 60th anniversary. We would have liked to have a family reunion at this time, but we knew that Jim and Judy would already be back in PNG. So we got together for a precious, enjoyable time in July last year – 28 years since our last complete family reunion. At that time we included all our grandchildren – Judy’s and Joel’s. David and Duane were still single. This time we had only our 4 children with 2 of their mates, without our 16 grands and 7 greats.
