A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken.

The time when fun is to be shared 
once all the honey do's are complete.

me and my honey

The wife and her new bike.

Where we love is home, Home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts.

There are numerous reasons why I love
the Pacific Northwest, but this is only one...

The  sky is always bluer  
when and if you can see it.

And, 80 degrees is an exceptionally
hot day.

Oh, is good.

Without music life would be a mistake.

I took this picture recently because it reminded me 
of a Bob Marley song.

I preferred the way that Eric Clapton did it though.
I attached it below.

See if you agree.

This was one talented little lady

While at a baseball game today, this young lady was riding some split in the middle skateboard that she propelled by wiggling here feet back and forth...never seen  one like that before and she was good at it.

she would zig-zag back and forth through crowds of people and never waver even in the slighted....

she held her head up and powered that thing like she had
been born of the darn thing...

later that afternoon, I saw her wisk by me
while she had a dish of ice cream in her hand 
and never dripped a drop.

I was amazed.

I love being married. It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.

And yet another wonderful
 year has concluded.

Now, we start our 45th year of marital bliss....

me and the woman of my dreams.

a little more of a good thing...

Sharing just a little bit more of this 
great old house I found.

The old car in the front drive didn't hurt either.

Peace - that was the other name for home.

As my wife and I journeyed on our
 4th of July 
outing, we passed this beautiful old

I fell in love with it's odd design.

I shot it from various angles 
and did it in a variety of 
colors and styles.

Hope it meet with your interest 
as it did mine.

See you tomorrow.

A child needs a grandparent, anybody's grandparent, to grow a little more securely into an unfamiliar world

With the coming of summer comes a number of chores my old bones just don't allow me to do with out great difficulty. But with the grace of God and accommodating children and 
Grandkids, these things have a way of getting accomplished.

Our son Steve and his son Zach are
trimming our front hedge.

I really think an ice cream is in order
for a job well done.
