Lots of GOOD news in your most recent post. :-)

An extra pound or two is GOOD. Less nausea is GOOD. Walks with Booker (Who’s walking who?) are GOOD. Another class to your “school” schedule is GOOD. A more comfortable PIC line is GOOD. Brothers and sisters who forget that you are sick… GOOD. It reminds me of a story…

The Way Things Seem
by anonymous

The story is told of a king in Africa who had a close friend with whom he grew up. The friend had a habit of looking at every situation that ever occurred in his life and remarking, “This is good!”

One day the king and his friend were out on a hunting expedition. The friend would load and prepare the guns for the king. The friend had apparently done something wrong in preparing one of the guns, for after taking the gun from his friend, the king fired it and his thumb was blown off. Examining the situation, the friend remarked as usual, “This is good!”

To which the king replied, “No, this is not good!” and proceeded to send his friend to jail.

About a year later, the king was hunting in an area that he should have known to stay clear of. Cannibals captured him and took them to their village. They tied his hands, stacked some wood, set up a stake and bound him to the stake. As they came near to set fire to the wood, they noticed that the king was missing a thumb. Being superstitious, they never ate anyone that was less than whole. So untying the king, they sent him on his way.

As the king returned home, he was reminded of the event that had taken his thumb and felt remorse for his treatment of his friend. He went immediately to the jail to speak with his friend. “You were right,” he said, “it was good that my thumb was blown off.” And he proceeded to tell the friend all that had just happened. “And so I am very sorry for sending you to jail for so long. It was bad for me to do this.”

“No,” his friend replied, “This is good!”

“What do you mean, ‘This is good’? How could it be good that I sent my friend to jail for a year?”

“If I had not been in jail, I would have been with you.”

Be good! :-)

This is good… in fact, it’s very good… in fact, it’s awesome! Nice job on your latest steps forward. We were just in Sun Valley and thought about your family – mostly because we worked with your dad there and we ran into people from the “ole days”. You and all your family are in our thoughts often. Positive thoughts, too, so keep up the positive thinking, guy! Hey Katie and Phil, bet you two hated having a few days off from school (yeah, about as much as I did). Take continued care, all of you! We’re here for you.
Love and good wishes, Deb and boyz (all 4)

Hey, Whitings! This is all great, great news. Sounds GOOD. Congratulations – and keep getting better, Kevin. Hey! Come to think of it, we’re having the end of the season soccer party for Park City White this Friday, October 24th at 5:30 at Suzanne Demarest’s barn. If you can make it and want more info, email me at We’d love to have you! It will just be pizza and hangout and play.

Caleb shot his first pheasant today. He’s very proud. We’ll be eating it tomorrow.

Hang in there!

Oh Kevin, I love to read your guestbook. I find lessons of encouragement and enjoyment. Your progress lifts our souls, and Reg’s “This is good” story is a great example of the joy we experience. What shall we bring you all from Bhutan and India? Go blue. Love, Grammie and Papa
