Biltmore - secondary entrance

I bet your back door isn't as nice as this - your front entry may not even be as nice. This is also the breezeway to the stables. Nice little home.

Have a wonderful Memorial Day - thanks to our soldiers and veterans!

A pretty day here

Greetings - our Internet was out all day yesterday - went out early and can back on this morning after the power went off and on. Grrrrrr.

Anyway, Internet back and Indy 500 set up on the DVR - life is good.

A long weekend

Greetings everybody. My folks were here for a few short days - it was great seeing them. Once a year isn't enough.

A long weekend coming up for most of you - have a good one and be careful - Monday will be insane with everyone going home again so drive safe.

Everything still blooming

I've never know it to rain so much and have everything grow so much. We just cut our grass last night - only 3 days since we cut it and it was tall! These photos are from the Biltmore gardens.

Sleepy head

It wasn't easy getting up this morning - could have slept in pretty easily. Oh well, I'm up now.

We'll let Anna sleep in though ...

Back in the rat race

It's Monday - hiho, hiho, it's off to work I go.

Have a great week! I get to see my parents this week!!

Sunday morning

It's Sunday morning - church in a few minutes.

Anna has been at Niagara falls and probably doesn't remember a thing!

Sunny here, the grass is cut, no paperwork today - woohoo!

Cute gals

A nice Saturday - the lawn beckons me. Alas, no more excuses.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Rain and more rain

I've never known it to rain so much! I hope it is dry enough for me to mow tomorrow.

Have a wonderful Friday!

Thursday already!

Wow - this week has flown - so much going on I guess. Have a great day and enjoy those around you.

Swimming with sharks

Mowed the yard last night between rains - I think I had enough to bale! Will need to mow again by Saturday most likely. Lots of rain and a bit cooler.

A couple of great meetings yesterday and more today - God is good!

Biltmore Greenhouse

I've been thinking of building a little greenhouse like this in my back yard. Hmmm... I may need to buy the lot next door.

Neidon made up his own variation of Hopscotch - foot outlines instead of boxes. He seems to be enjoying it.

A rainy weekend and more rain projected - my yard is a jungle again.

Biltmore details

From Gargoyles to gardens to beautiful surrounding scenery, the Biltmore is stunning. We're already looking forward to going again.

My little Easter bunny

Here is something even more spectacular than the Biltmore. We talked with them on the video cam last night and sure enjoyed seeing them all. You all have a wonderful Friday.

Biltmore Stables

Even the stables were nicer and larger than most homes I've ever seen. Their was a restaurant now in the horse area with booths in the stalls - a very nice restaurant.

This house is huge!

You don't realize how large and how much detail is in the Biltmore until you get right up on it. At least 4 stories tall and a large attic plus two basement levels. The lions at the front steps are about as big as a person.

Cute chicks

Friday - I have three meetings today - all new prospects - a factory energy update and two church remodels/additions. All nice projects.

We're off to Ashville after work today to see the Biltmore and will return Sunday. We're excited - watch for photos.

Cinco de Mayo outside of Texas is weird

Good morning - yesterday I cropped and got this photo ready and then forgot to post - must be getting old (don't reply sis).

Another sunny day here - we're back to summer weather again. Have a blessed day.

Rain has stopped

Our rain has stopped and the waters are receding - Nashville will take a long time to recover. I read somewhere it was a 1 in 1000 year flood.

Tonight - look out yard! My grass is like a forest.

Monday, May 03, 2010

Still raining ...

Over 5" of rain in the last two days - over a foot in some parts of Nashville and lots of flooding. They evacuated the Opryland Hotel and roads shut down all over Nashville.

Have a great week!

Sunday, May 02, 2010

Rain, rain, rain ...

Over 2" yesterday at our house and over a foot in areas closer to Nashville with lots more expected today. Several drownings - so sad.

Pray for all of these folks and be safe today.

I can hear our winds picking up again as the new rains move in.

Aquarium girl

It was sunny when we got up, but dark now and a huge storm is rolling in - lots of rain expected today!

Cindy is home - all is right with the world!
