Three generations

Three pretty gals here - hey, when did Cindy and I get to the top end of that link? Life is good!

We're starting off warm here and cooler by mid week - I think most of the country is getting the same type of weather. Wherever you live, be safe and drive careful.

Noema - day one

One of Noema's earliest photos - she doesn't appear to be to pleased about it. You can see the weight - hey, she's half grown!

Hit 60 here yesterday and almost as warm today - stop teasing us God and just bring on spring!

Enjoy church today and have a great week.

Happy girl

Noema does look like Cindy occasionally, but usually more like me! This photo is a Cindy look.

Supposed to hit 50+ today - bring on spring! Have a great day - I love you all.

PS Cindy got home safely.

Anna and her grandma Adams

Cindy comes home Friday - looks sunny and clear here in Cookeville - should be a nice day to drive back.

A crazy but great week - I hope yours went well!

Good morning

Neidon is such a great big brother. His love for his sisters is very evident. He's so much fun too!

A sunny day here - woohoo! No snow for several days - I'm ready. No travels today - office work only - life is good.

Sisters, sisters, ...

Kaireia is a wonderful big sister! I'm so proud of her.

Happy girl

Kardia is a lot of fun. All of my grandchildren are so different and each special in their own way!

Snow here but not real bad - off to Nashville today, hope the roads aren't too bad.

I'm back home

It's 32 degrees in Cookeville - feels like a heat wave compared to -1 to 18 degrees in Columbus.

The drive up was mostly snow, ice and white-knuckle driving. The drive back was smooth sailing and clear, clean roads.

The things we do for the grandkids!!

Kleeman kids +1

Well, this family just got a whole lot larger!

I'm heading up tomorrow after work - hopefully this big snow storm coming through doesn't hurt my getting out.

Have a great Friday and a great weekend - I will!!

She's here!

Aren't my girls beautiful!?

I'm anxious to hold that little one - pray they continue to do well.

I was anxious to see how that new little girl would look - sort of like her gramps, huh?

Ice cream in winter

If you're going to eat ice cream in winter, you need a heater to keep you warm.

Kaireia and Anna

A new week has begun- make it a good one!

Some sleet and light snow for today, but otherwise a great day.

Cindy is still spoiling grand-kids - sounds like fun!!

Eagle watch was successful!

We had several eagle views yesterday - too bad they don't show themselves in July or August - it was flat out cold yesterday on the water!

Saturday, January 15, 2011

Fun with grandkids

I'm sure Cindy is having fun already - grandkids are great!

I'm off with friends on an eagle watch this morning up at Dale Hollow Lake - hopefully I'll get some great photos and have great fellowship - have a wonderful day!

Some big yellow thing was in the sky yesterday and I see it coming up again this morning - we almost forgot what the sun looked like!

It's already 12 degrees and it's to get in the low 30's today - woohoo, some heat wave!

Cindy's off in a bit to Ohio, think 'baby'!

Thursday, January 13, 2011

snow ... snow ... snow ... snow ...

Well, same old thing today - snow and more snow. Cindy is chomping at the bit to head north - hopefully tomorrow.

Have a blessed day my friends - and try to stay warm!

North Texas

We got to visit the Wamplers on the way back from south Texas. A great visit and lots of fun! They have a ranch north of Dallas near Paris, Texas.

Still snowing here - this is not fun any more.

Internet problems

Just got onto Internet - problems connecting today.

Lots of snow and still coming down now - not a lot, just steady. More expected through tomorrow.

Audrey is in hospital with kidney stone and Rachel still needs her momma! Pray Cindy can get up there in the next few days to help out.

Meanwhile, enjoy this old building from Gruene, Texas - pretty nice, huh?

Spent picture time shoveling driveway - thankfully two shovels so Cindy and I could both 'get 'er done!" Looks to be over 2" so far and coming down steady - brrrr. Love you all!

5 degrees in Cookeville

Young eyes don't need a magnifying glass - that's all I'm saying.

We had an inch or two of snow yesterday morning and light flurries much of the day. More expected tonight through Tuesday with more accumulation - 4" to 9" projected in areas.

Pray for Rach - she started labor yesterday and Cindy has her bags packed ready to roll. Not sure if a false start or an early baby - just pray for her and Noema.

River walk 2010

As always, click on photo to see larger.

Woke up to huge snow flakes coming down - shoveled the drive and warming up for the next round. Have a great weekend.

Anna waa 1 year old yesterday

We 'Skyped' with Anna yesterday - she waved, frowned, smiled and mostly nibbled on snacks - but we sure enjoyed it. Grandkids are fun!

Well, it's snowing here and predicted to keep up through tomorrow - remember, think summer!

Have a blessed Friday my friends!

Christmas is fun with family

Another great day ahead - flurries here yesterday, but nothing stuck. More Friday and Saturday - we'll see ...

Here is Janice's family ... enjoy!

Wild bunch

Saw this crazy looking group of folks at Gruene Hall when we were in Texas. Thought there would be some singing group there - was I surprised.

Snow flurries expected here - think summer ...

Tuesday, January 04, 2011


Good morning - not quite Riverwalk weather this morning, but at least above the freezing mark.

Anna and Audrey are home from Oregon - thanks for your travel prayers. Rachel is feeling poorly - keep praying for her. She is only weeks away from her due date.

Have a wonderful day - and think 'WARM'.

Alarm went off pretty early

Well, it's back to work. My body didn't want to get up early - but here goes!

19 degrees in Cookeville this morning, but it is supposed to warm up to high 40's today and sunny.

Sunday, January 02, 2011

We're back ...

Another grand time in Texas! But it sure feels great to be home again. I'm actually looking forward to getting back to work - lots of great things going on.

Have a wonderful and blessed 2011. Wow - that was hard to type!
