Butterfly event

Joey was in the butterfly parade, which was a hodge-podge collection of all-age children,dressed like butterflies, and their parents and other well-wishers, walking along the boardwalk to the pier, covered by what looked like dozens of cameras, both still and video. There's a good chance the Joester will show up on television or in the newspaper.

There was free face painting, sales of books by local authors, and a little booth for taking pictures. And prizes. Joey won third prize in the "best overall" category, which we thought was quite a coup. I think his was the only costume with hand-colored butterfly wings, and we got a lot of compliments on it. If I get to the one-hour photo in a day or so I will of course post some pix here.

His prize was a bag of goodies - all related to butterflies. Erasers, stickers, stamps...lots of stuff, which he really enjoyed. We played with the little bucket and shovel set down on the beach after the butterfly event was over. I've always loved playing in the sand.

Now Mary is at work and Joey is painting at his little desk, with a set of watercolors I have. His first paintings, so he's enjoying it. And doing well with it.

I took out my stint this morning so I could eat breakfast with Joe, Mary, and Joey. I haven't put it back in since. It's a bit like having a burned roof of the mouth, maybe a little worse. Some tissue got loose from there and I finally had to get it out of my mouth. I suppose it was some kind of beginning healing tissue. I was able to rinse my mouth with salt water all right when I got home. I'm going to keep trying to go without this thing.
