Probably tired, since he likely got up early to travel to this auction!

Are you sure?

Happy New Year

My most memorable photo of 2021, and likely my favorite as well. It is a photo of my Aunt and Uncle at the cemetery during the interment of my Mother! Hope you all have a great year in 2022

Light My Fire

Awaiting the live production at “Sight and Sound” theater, in Pennsylvania. It felt like you were right in the city of Susa. They did a terrific job, as always.

Before I got the shutter clicked this girl turned around and saw my tele pointed in her direction! So it goes.

We had a short and sweet birthday party, with just my wife and I attending! All my siblings attended via Zoom, thus they missed the cake and ice cream! Great to see her having fun and enjoying herself! I decide to pose with her, and she had to clown around! 🙂

She settled down when I grabbed the camera!

My wife and Mother!

I am sitting on our porch doing this post. I just finished 4 oz of this fabulous Salted Caramel Drinking Chocolate by Katherine Anne confections! Awesome! Although my birthday was 10 days ago, it was nice to again celebrate. You all have a great week.

Thanks to Dairy Queen this Reese Peanut Butter Cup cake was readily available with no fuss, and no muss! The party was for our son, Austin, and his son’s fiancee, Kourtney! Sorry, Dusty, you didn’t get any of it since you left a week too soon. But, we did sing for you. Google Mail said that the video was too long to send. So, I will have to learn how to edit it, and send it.

20,000 Days since Alice and I met back on September 18, 1966. Our lives haven’t been the same since!! First day of Summer, and National Selfie Day are eclipsed by our special day! We’ve lived in Virginia, Pennsylvania, Iowa, and Ohio. We also lived in Northwestern Ontario and Dhaka, Bangladesh! I have worked in 4 different hospitals as a Medical Technologist. Alice worked in three hospitals as an LPN. I was also Principal at four different schools. I piloted little two-seater planes in NW Ontario for 440 hours. We have two sons, a daughter-in-law, and three grandsons. We have hiked in the Southern Rockies, as well as the mountains of the Banff, Jasper, Waterton and Glacier National Parks. We have hiked the Grand Canyon three times, the foothills of the Swiss Alps, and the Himalayas. We’ve hike in the Smokies, and a volcano in Bali. We have slept under the stars at the Upper Chukuni near Red Lake, and on the sandy desert of Western India near Jaisalmer. We were both saved from drowning, and Alice is a Cancer Survivor!! God has been good!!! As the plaque says on our porch, “Welcome to our Porch, where we enjoy the lazy days of summer!” If you want to hear more of our story, we could oblige you. Maybe even a cup of coffee, or ice tea! If you from another state or country, we have spare bedrooms also! P.S. We got married 1,000 days after we met!
