New bed

Yes, there is somebody on the top bunk!

Kaireia just got a new bed and her daddy took this picture yesterday with his phone and emailed it to us to enjoy.

See her big smile!

A new week

As we start a new week, here is a photo looking back to a couple of my favorite colorers.

Let's just watch so we don't break their concentration.

Quote of the week

“You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen, it said ‘Parking Fine.’”

Mission in San Antonio

A look back to February when we visited the Missions with the kids. It was a beautiful day.

Hey Dude

Hey dude - heard you had a BIG birthday this week. So get rid of that silly grin and get back to your yard work!

One more time

Cindy will be doing this again real soon. She looks pretty comfortable with this - don't you think?

Having fun

Of course, I might enjoy the rain more if someone wanted to play in the rain with me.

Rain and more rain

It rained all yesterday afternoon and we're getting more now! Our yard is water logged!!

What's a cubit?

Tuesday morning

Well gang - it's another day and it sure looks like rain again. It thundered off in the distance a lot last night and yesterday afternoon we had more rain as well. We're pretty water logged right now.

Here is Kaireia from a few years ago. Our little sweetheart and clothes artist.

Almost there

Who is this girl and why is she smiling?

She has less than 30 days until she is holding another baby in her arms - you should see the smile on HER mother's face - now that is happy!

Some high level talking and planning was going on here - you don't even want to know.

Have a great Sunday!

7.10.04 Deja Vu

This photo was about 3 years ago, but we look even worse now. Rain, rain and ... more rain. Over 7" month to date in San Antonio. We're ready for that sunshine we used to be so famous for before global cooling, I mean warming. Hmmm ... we're 5 to 10 degrees below normal for over two months - go figure.

Days crawl, years fly

Is this the little girl I carried?
Is this the little boy at play?
I don't remember growing older
When did they?
When did she get to be a beauty?
When did he get to be so tall?
Wasn't it yesterday
When they were small?

High riders

Reed and Audrey got to see Maui in a number of ways. But when they said they took a chopper ride I had something else in mind.

Everything was beautiful

Even the bathrooms in Oregon were beautiful!

I pray your week is going great. Still more rain in San Antonio - we look greener than this photo.

Toot toot!

I could easily play train with a young man right now. That would be a lot of fun!

Play good together

I know a contractor who tells his subcontractors to play good together and just get their work done. That's my advice to you this week - "Play good together" and have a great week.

So Happy Together

When I see these two this happy, I just know they're up to something!

Have a great Sunday. The new week is off and running!!

The truth comes out

Well, I must confess that there was a real reason behind Reed and Audrey not wanting a cake. It will come out at the congressional hearing, but in the meantime, let this photograph give you a clue into my real meaning.

San Antonio spotting

These strange looking fellows were recently spotted at one of the missions in San Antonio. If you have information leading to their known identities or current where abouts, keep it to yourself!

Kaireia at museum

Sometimes I feel like I have so many little tasks going on that I'm just spinning my wheels trying to get to the big projects. It's hard to stay focused.

Philippians 3:13b-14 "But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."

Oregon stream

A photo of an Oregon stream to enjoy. This was at a falls just east of Portland.

Psalm 42:1 "As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God."

Good looking

Neidon looked good at the wedding - but check out these grandmas too! Those Adams' dress up nice.

It's Monday

Well, my Mondays are not as bad as this, but this morning it did take some doing to get going. We went down to the Wampler's ranch yesterday and didn't get home until around midnight - yawn.
It's good to be back to work to rest up!

Sunday, July 08, 2007


Everybody like good fireworks. I hope your 4th of July and the week surrounding was terrific.

Have a blessed Sunday and new week.

Too wet for a walk here

I see a few walkers out my window, but it is still sprinkling some after a really hard rain earlier this morning. My plants aren't liking this - they're south Texas plants and prefer it hot and dry!

Here is Kaireia walking with her dad down an Oregon forest path.

All dressed up

Neidon with his grandma Adams enjoying a black tie affair. He knows how to party.

Boots Randolph

Boots Randolph died yesterday. As a saxophone player myself (many moons ago) this was always someone that I admired and aspired to be - and then I realized I wasn't really that good - oh well.

Boots Randolph - 80 years old.

Looking back to 03/07/04

That Kaireia has always been a great dresser. She's about to have a sister to whom she'll have to teach these basic principles. We're only about 7 weeks away to baby nirvana.

Face Painting or bad make-up?

Rain, rain, rain! We've had rain here daily for weeks. I guess it's making up for all the dry years we've had in South Texas.

Here is my beautiful grand daughter. This was take in the Portland Children's Museum.

Happy newlyweds

Audrey and Reed look great here - a wonderful photo.

You all have a great week and a great 4th of July.

Sunday, July 01, 2007

Pay attention

Remember to pay attention to the sermon today. You might have to take notes to keep your focus - Neidon says it works for him (or he'll snooze.)
