June’s Philosophy of Life is simple:
Eat real food.  Go outside and play.  Hang around with the right people in the right places. Say your prayers. Get plenty of sleep.  “You can't fool Mother Nature!”

 June’s daily prayer:
“Lord Let Me Live Each Day Trying to Accomplish Something, Not Merely to Exist!”
