Festival of Inspiration rolls on, I’m too into it to write about it at this time so here is an article with a picture of my son who is a cop in Georgia:

For three days, members of the Johns Creek Police Department sat up on the roof of Garrison’s Broiler & Tap in Johns Creek collecting donations for the Special Olympics. The department raised $8,000 from the community.

Johns Creek Police will join 1,000 other Georgia law enforcement agencies in the annual “Law Enforcement Torch Run” for Special Olympics Georgia.

In conjunction with the run, the JCPD will host a fundraiser golf tournament May 18 for the non-profit that provides year-round sports training and athletic competition programming for more than 22,000 Georgians with intellectual disabilities.

For more information about the golf tournament or Torch Run, call 678-474-1580 or 678-474-1587

I will say that Vidya took some surplus asparagus from our garden to sell, about 8 bunches worth, and left it on someone’s booth table for a few minutes and when she came back it was all gone.  I was helping Hari Bhakta plant 100 asparagus in the Garden of Seven Gates this spring and it makes me think we should plant a couple of hundred more next spring.
