Latest Happenings

I hope this page will give family and friends a place to go if they want to know what is going on in our lives lately.

(This page will be removed once a week to save in my archives, then the current week will be started.  Most likely on a Saturday morning)

Happy Father's Day Dad!  Love and miss you and Mom!

FINALLY!  A sunny morning to wake up to!

Good looking day from Earth orbit as well.  <grin>

Ok.  Got the front and side yard mowed!  Now gotta get ready to head down to Walt & Joyce's for Father's Day.

A few more flowers from the yard.

Jerry and Ida came up to Walt and Joyce's for Father's Day and Jude, Chancie, and I went down too.  We all took Walt and Joyce to Cascade Pizza for dinner.  I would have taken a few pics but I forgot to put the SD card back into my camera this morning!  ARG!  Judy had the spaghetti and ribs, Joyce and I had the lasagna and ribs, Walter, Ida, and Jerry each had a pizza.  Good food!

Long day expected today.  Have to drive all the way to Sumner and back for work.  Not looking forward to this at ALL!

Ok then.  I made it!  Between the traffic on I-405 and HWY 167...BOTH directions...I survived!  OMG!  I don't know how those folks do it down there, traveling these roads on a daily basis!  I couldn't do it!
