Our summer home was fine

The Biltmore was fun - we went with the Millers from church. This will be Biltmore week -watch for lots of photos. I love you all - have a great Sunday.

Remember you can click on any photo to see it larger.

You can re-post pictures on Facebook, Twitter or just forward to someone as an email attachment by clicking one of the appropriate small boxes immediately under each photo.

At the end of each my daily posts are 'Labels' - if you click on a word listed there, 'Cookeville', for instance - it will show every photo with that label connected to it. A great way to see every photo of 'Anna' or one of the grandkids.


Cooler evenings - feels like fall

Down in the 50's this morning - feels great.

A busy day and then off to Asheville, N.C. My summer home (the Biltmore) needs some attention, so better get over there. Wonder how long it will take to cut that yard?

Enjoy my girls in yellow until I post again.

Lots of meetings ahead - this week is flying! This weekend - the Biltmore Estate with some friends from church - really nice with this cooler weather.

Have a great day - God is good.

Birthday girl

Kardia had a big birthday yesterday - three years old. Our baby is growing up - seems like yesterday our kids were that age.

Like they say - "the days crawl and the years fly".

Little swimmer

Cool nights and hot days - at least our cooler nights are making the days more bearable.

Have a great day.

PS Anna did not like the pool.

The water is fine

A week of warm days and cool nights - sounds good to me.

Here is Anna after a 'swim' in her little pool. She wasn't impressed. The getting out and drying off - now that was nice.

Red hair??

Matthew 10:30 (NIV)

And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

Have a great Sunday - love you all!

(Who out there is close to Paris, TN?)

An exhausting week

Cindy drives back from Ohio today, I've got a couple of projects to wrap up - and then - woohoo - it's Friday, the weekend is here.

Have a wonderful weekend - I hope it drys out here enough to mow this wheat field of a lawn I now have. Chances are slim ...

Lots of rain yesterday - 7" in parts of town and lots of flooding. I measured 5" at our house from 5 am until bedtime.

Kids are having fun chalking up their drive.

She's moving!

Over two inches of rain in the last two days - it rained hard this morning over an hour - we needed it!

Anna is on the move - if this photo is a bit blurry you know why - she doesn't slow down!

Watermelon dress

Cooler days here - only high 80's - and a chance of rain every day - pray we get some.

Quiet on the home front - I'm sure it's not quiet where Cindy is at! Hope your week is going well.

A brand new work week

Off to work - wow, was that a fast weekend?!!

Cindy is off to Ohio - have fun! I think some painting is involved too.

Maybe seeing some tree monkeys too.

Good morning gramps

This little gal greeted me yesterday morning. A nice way to start a day.

The kids are back home - safe and sound - we had a nice visit and introduced them to our local county fair.

36 years ago!

I'm glad they reminded us on Nixon's resignation yesterday as we got married the day after in 1974. Whew, I almost forgot - saved again!

Have a great day - mine is work, come home and mow the lawn and then County Fair rodeo - woohoo! Top that if you can!

Company is coming

Someone needs her cheeks kissed - I'm the grandpa to do it.

Have a wonderful week! What's God got in store for us?

Guess who's coming this week

We've got visitors the end of this week - Grandma Adams is excited - Anna looks pleased too - check out more of her photos on Audrey's facebook.

Neidon is hiding

Someone is hiding behind Sandra and seems to be enjoying it!

It's Saturday - getting ready to mow the lawn, work on my SS lesson and just plain relax!

Enjoyed the county fair last night - motorcycle races - woohoo!

Love to read

Cindy and I love to read - and our kids do too. This would be a nice day to relax and read - it's going to be hot out there today. If you have to go out, please be careful and drink lots of fluids.

Tomorrow I have an early trip to Knoxville so probably no post - hope your week is going well.

The Adams family

Good morning - the last few days of photos are from my Dad's camera. At least someone is getting me current photos ... hint, hint.

Another super hot day here today - and with the humidity, whew ...

Have a great day!

Knoxville today - the road is long ...

Looks like a wild gang was at Darin's church this summer - I could get my hands on a few of them.

Have a great day - still fighting this Switchgrass project - getting close - within 10%.

Story time

Kaireia is telling her great-grandma Adams a big story. She appears to be a hand talker - all I know is she sure looks like she is growing up too fast. Slow down there girl!

A new week - have a good one!

Getiing dressed up ... it's Sunday

Here are some cousins having fun. Cute gals!

Got rain on and off yesterday - real nice - off to church this morning - have a wonderful week!

Psalm 103:13 (NIV)

As a father has compassion on his children,
so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him;
