My father used to play with my brother and me in the yard. Mother would come out and say, 'You're tearing up the grass.' 'We're not raising grass,' Dad would reply. 'We're raising boys.'
"And the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds."
We continued to see an extension of the rally in gold, off the bottom that was set for the June option expiration.
In particular the current tilt in the polls for Brexit has the international banking community shifting from foot to foot. After all, if the Brits exit the EU, who will be there to bail out the continental banks as the neoliberal economic madness continues to destroy the real economies of one nation after another.
There was a tragic mass shooting over the weekend in Orlando, and all of the victims and their families have been in our thoughts and prayers.
There will be more economic news this week, as well as some central bank actions that could influence the price of gold. Silver seems to be following gold at this point, but that will change when we move to an active month for the silver trade.
I have been having some fun with the Queen, helping her to reorient herself to every day activities. Today I was able to get her behind the wheel of a car, even though it was in a parking lot, just to get the feel of it again. It will be a little while before she can go out on the highway, but I know she enjoyed it.
And then I took her for a drive to the car wash in her car, and picked up a large pizza at one of her favorite places. I then took her to the bank, and watched as she made out a deposit slip and banked a check she had received from a small life insurance policy from her father. Watching her delight as she realized that she could write normally again was quite a joy. What a change from just a few weeks ago. It is a gift of infinite wonder.
We have liked doing these little chores together for some years now, and go to most places together, but for the sake of our marriage I do not do any clothes shopping with her. I drop her off at Kohls and go to Lowes. But it is still fun, and does not seem like a chore when you do it with an amiable companion.
Its the little things that make life worth living.
Have a pleasant evening.
