A beautiful Wednesday in store for us

Good morning! I was in Byrdstown last night and in Decherd today - one of these churches needs to get started - ha!

A few beautiful days ahead - everything is blooming - a beautiful time of year.

And the grandkids are perfect!

What's for breakfast?

Good morning all!

A fine morning here in the Cumberland's of Tennessee - a high close to 70 and lots of sunshine is predicted.

Thanks to Terry for all the Kleeman kids photos - more Anna soon. Love you and have a wonderful day.

Another week

Someone is missing a tooth - have you seen it? I wonder what the tooth fairy pays these days?

The redbuds and many other trees are beginning to bloom and many are in flower. My grass looks a disaster - it is ready for more seed and fertilizer - I sure miss my St. Augustine!

Have a wonderful week.

Tennessee Governor

The Governor of Tennessee and my Leadership Putnam class.

No internet??

I'm borrowing connection form a neighbor's unsecured wireless - our power went out last night for a few moments and our internet never came back on. Will try to figure out today.

Lots of rain all night and this morning - spring is on its way!

30,000 hits

Sometime this weekend I'll have the 30,000th hit on this blog site. Over the past 51 months (over 4 years) you all will have looked at 1625 posts for an average of almost 20 views or hits a day.

Thanks you for watching my family grow up - we've had marriages, additions, moves and lots of changes but through it all God has been so good to us. He is faithful indeed.

Thanks for watching - the best is yet to come ....

Watching tv together

Kardia and her grandpa Kleeman - looks like fun!

I love kids climbing over me!

Reed, Audrey and Anna are home safe. Have a great Saturday - it's sunshine here today.

Casual Friday

A rainy overcast morning, but at least warmer than usual.

A busy but great day ahead - life is good. Have a wonderful and blessed weekend.

Markers are fun

Reed should be with his family in Oregon by now - 24 hours or so in the Denver airport - snow is yucky.

Thought you would enjoy these photos - another artist in the Kleeman family.

I wanna hold her!!

I spoke too soon yesterday - now everyone wants to hold Anna!

Reed is stuck in snowy Denver. His destination, Oregon, is so close yet so far. Pray he gets to his family soon.

Warm Tuesday

Flurries yesterday and 60 degrees projected today - I pray you have a great day.

Anna has a great smile - she needs someone to hold her.

Anna's car

Even Anna went to the drive-in. Kind of hard to see, but I like her 'Anna' front license plate. She looks mighty comfortable.

Sunday, March 21, 2010


The kids under Reed at his church have a drive-in movie night - the cars they make from cardboard boxes. It appears the Kleeman kids made a truck and are sleeping in the bed of the truck.

I think there is room for gramps in there.

New DVD cabinet

The yellowish photo was taken 2 years ago - the other photos show the new cabinet on left side of fireplace and hidden from room. Nice to have the DVDs handy instead of all hidden all over the house.

New master bedroom look

The blue is before - the tan is after. I have a great painter in the family.

Tennessee Capitol Building

Some photos in the Senate and downstairs when we had our photo with the Governor. The photo with him in it (4th down) I've noted which one is the Governor.

A nice Thursday

We're supposed to hit 60 today - sounds nice.

A great day in Nashville yesterday - our state Rep spent much of the day introducing us around, had a tour of the Capitol, photos with our Representatives and the Governor and we were given lots of fascinating info. My head is still spinning.

Anna and her mommy are in Oregon - have fun!

A full day

Good morning! A 9 am meeting, a 1 pm meeting and a 6:30 meeting out of town - exciting day.

Tomorrow probably no post - I have to leave at 6 am and meet my LP (Leadership Putnam) class to drive to Nashville. It's our state government day - meet the Governor and our local state reps and lots of photos.

It's dark outside

I don't like this time change - woke up to pitch black and stumbled to the bathroom. It was a colder weekend too - not even above 50.

Here is a sweetheart for you to enjoy as you start off your week - get a little sunshine from this photo.

Peter Graves died yesterday - Mission Impossible is one of my favorite old TV series. He was only 83.

Dreaming of summer

We had a fun time in Alabama yesterday. I bought a $30 suit and Cindy got some $7 pants. Lots of deals - several bought electronics - one bought a $200 hi-def video camera and another a $500 17" laptop that was barely used - tons of clothes, electronics, etc - how did people ever lose all this stuff? Even large stuff like exercise machines and large paintings? I recommend when flying - travel light and put your name INSIDE your suitcase.

Hey you - want a knuckle yammich!

Anna is beginning to talk - gramps was her first word of course. She's advanced, like all of my wonderful grand children.

Off to 'Unclaimed Baggage' in a few minutes with a bus full of women - pray for me ....

Friday, March 12, 2010

An overcast day

Overcast today, but we've had several sunny days that were wonderful. The sun just lifts your mood and makes you feel better.

Tomorrow we're off to the Unclaimed Baggage store in Alabama with a group from church - I've been promised I won't be the only male!

I'm sure I'll find something I can't do without that I never heard of before.

Wake up sleepy heads

It's going to be an overcast, rainy day today - at least it is warmer then what we've been having. This kind of weather can sure make you drowsy.

Have a wonderful day.

Good looking dudes

Another fine morning here - a bit of rain but much warmer. But I've learned Tennessee winters don't fade into the night - they will return.

Decherd, TN yesterday and Byrdstown this morning - lots going on - another great day! May God bless you this day.

Pretty in purple

We talked to Rachel last night and wished her a Happy Birthday. We are so blessed with our children!

Here's a pretty little girl for you to enjoy - all decked out in purple - the dress makes her look huge. What is she thinking?

Spring is close

A nice weekend but today is to be the warmest yet - over 60 degrees today!

Here's a picture to make you ready for warm weather - shorts, short sleeve shirts, playing with grandkids outside, ah ...

Sunday, March 07, 2010

Almost church time - are you ready?

If I looked this cute, Cindy might have let me sleep in - alas, that was not the case.

Enjoy your church and church family today. And hopefully, warmer weather!

Saturday, March 06, 2010

A great Saturday - warmer and sunny

Good morning! Here's a nice smile to get you going.

You should see our newly painted bedroom and bathroom - Cindy has been busy. I'm afraid to sit down or I might get painted as well!

PS Rachel - send photos

It's 'hold a baby' Friday

Isn't this a great photo! One of those moments you want to enjoy forever.

Warmer weather here and continued warming - at least for a few days.

A great day today - meet with a new church, several afternoon meetings and hopefully visit a new granite store in town.

Thursday, March 04, 2010

Come play gramps

We had a visitor a year ago at our house. I'm sure we had a lot of fun playing!

Enjoy your Thursday - I think we're due for warmer weather.

Warmer trend coming

Good morning! Wow - was that a fast night! I hope you have a great day ahead.

Anna says hi - go over to her folks blog and you can see her video - she'll even smile for you.

Snow today??

I sure didn't want to get up and get going today, but here I am. Appointments all day - life is good.

We're to get a bit of snow today and then a warm up behind - I'll believe it when I see it.

Monday, March 01, 2010

Good Monday morning!

I have another busy but great week lined up - I pray you have a wonderful week too!

Here is a cute little girl to get your week started off on a great note.

Pray for my Aunt Mary Alice who is having some real health problems. Thanks!
