Lego lover

Good morning! A brisk 30 degrees outside and 'wintry mix' warnings are posted - fortunately no precipitation at the moment or it would be a true mess out there.

Well, another Lego lover has been created - Neidon loves to build stuff with his Legos. I guess it is the equivalent to Lincoln Logs that I had as a kid. All you add is your imagination.

Have a great day - stay warm and dry and be careful on the roads.

Rain rain go away ...

We've had rain since yesterday morning with nary a letup since it began. My neighbor is building an ark - maybe not a good sign? It's supposed to turn colder tonight with a high chance of snow tomorrow. It's already starting off at 40 degrees with not much warming up today.

Well, back to work - what a great long Thanksgiving weekend - I'm thankful for all of my family that I got to see! I'm even thankful for the ones I didn't see!!

Have a great week - I love you all!

A rainy, rainy Sunday morning

Good morning - it's raining this morning as a cold front comes through today - a slight chance of snow tomorrow as we head into a brand new week. Hey, December rolls in this week - where did that come from?

The stores already have their decorations up for Christmas - it's that time of year ...

My folks are headed to the airport - Sandra sent me an email they left at 7 am her time, 6 am ours, to head back to catch their flight in Nashville - pray for a safe trip.

We had a great time seeing family and just enjoying a long weekend - it's going to be hard going back in to work tomorrow!

Windy Saturday

A sunny and windy Saturday. A couple of nice days and then cooler weather the first of the week - even a slight chance of snow! Brrrr.

The drugs are beginning to work - we could both talk this morning and are actually coughing less. Maybe we're kicking this stuff out of our system - at least we hope so.

Today is putting up a few Christmas lights and some other misc. stuff. Just enjoying another day off!

Sunny Friday

We skipped Black Friday and moved on to Sunny Friday - the sun is out, it's a beautiful day out.

We had a great Thanksgiving with Sandra, Laura, Matt and Katie and my folks yesterday at Sandra's house. Great food and great fun.

The gang is coming over today for some more visiting and hanging out - it should be fun. I pray your Thanksgiving went well.

Happy Thanksgiving

Wow - the holidays already!? We're off to Sandra's in a bit with a car full of pies. We'll drive over the river and through the woods and over the windiest roads you've ever seen. Woohoo!

Well, just posting this picture to remind you not to eat too much. I've always heard you could explode if you ate too much - this picture almost proves that theory to be true.

I love you all - thank you God for family. Thanks for the family with us now and thanks for the ability to have great memories of family no longer with us. :-)

It's Friday! (kind of)

Lincoln and Anna
A great day ahead - a client meeting this morning, off to Crossville to video a project for a client in Jerusalem and them paperwork this afternoon.

A long holiday weekend ahead - have a great day and a great Thanksgiving.

Week's half over

Noema, Neidon and Kaireia
Good morning - I can talk! My voice is coming back and I'm feeling human again - woohoo! It is not fun being sick.

I like this photo - Noema has a look of apprehension or of just not wanting to be a part of whatever the other two are up to. Sorta like me with my two sisters growing up! (I'll hear from that one).

Unusually warm weather again today - high close to 70 and then a cold front in again tomorrow. No wonder we're sick!

Have a wonderful day - what are you thankful for this week?

Rainy Monday - the leaves are gone

Good morning - we went to the doctor yesterday and found we had sinus problems - either infected or close to it. We're both on medicine and hope to kick it in the next few days.

I do have to run up to Albany, KY this afternoon, but otherwise just a paperwork day. Hey, I've only got three workdays this week - this is almost like a Wednesday!

Have a great week and travel safe if you are going to see family!

Sicky Sunday

Kardia and Noema
Yes, we are both home sick today. The local clinic doesn't open until noon - we'll be there.

Don't know when I last missed church - it's been a long while. Pray for both of us.

At least I can still enjoy my grand-kids via photos.

Last time to mow?

Good morning! Off to breakfast, back to several errands - hopefully our last time to mow. We've had several hard frosts so it has probably stopped growing.

We're still feeling bad - coughing and sore throat - we're ready to get over this - pray we heal soon. I don't like being sick.

PS Cleopatra never looked this good!

21 degrees out - brrrr!

Rachel and Neidon
Good morning - well, rumor (and Facebook) sez Matt Monroe is back from Afghanistan! We've been praying for him for months and are so excited he has returned. Welcome Home Matt!!
Click here for release.

Well, we're still sick - I need to work for a company with sick leave - this is getting old. We will get well though - hang tough.

Have a great day - hey, it's Friday!! Woohoo!!

We've got Sunshine

A cold Cookeville morning to you. It's below freezing outside - but at least we have some sunshine.

I've got mostly local meetings today and a quick trip to Crossville this afternoon. I think it is to warm up to mid 40's today - a real warm one, huh?

Cindy and I are still battling colds - I think some of you are as well. I pray we all get better soon. I love you guys!!

... maybe today ...

Rainy cold day

Good morning -  a dreary day here - cold and rainy. But only on the outside. On the inside ... I'm sick too! I think a cold - too much work to stay home though - oh well ...

We enjoyed the basketball game last night - they won which was even better. You are a winner too - so go out there and get going!! (Whatever) I love you - have a blessed day.

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

Have a Super day

Kardia, Neidon, Noema and Kaireia
Good morning - yesterday was the second hottest day ever for that date and today will be similar. My allergies don't like this. A front is stalled out over us - it's time to move on!

Got lots of paperwork done yesterday and today more of the same. TTU Basketball tonight - men's team starts - should be fun.

Check out these cute grandkids!!

We're back!

Anna Adams
We had a great time in Columbus spoiling babies - but now back to reality. Warmer weather for a few days - enjoy it while it lasts.

Have a great week - I love you all!

Thursday, November 10, 2011

It's Friday! At least for me.

Cindy in India
Good morning - a crazy but good day ahead. Tomorrow we leave to see our babies and we're excited! No pictures for a few days - but if you have a memory like an elephant you can recall photos over the past years to fill in until I return.

I have a photographic memory, but I've run out of film. Have a great day - only 34 out this morning and highs in the 40's - brrrr.

Hump day

Yes it is Wednesday, affectionately known as hump day as it it mid-week for most workers. However, as I am going to see grand-kids on Friday, tomorrow becomes my Friday, hence today is my Thursday. If you understand that, tell me as I just got confused.

Anyway, I'm ready to swing some young 'uns and have some fun spoiling babies.

This is our last nice day this week before cold weather rolls in again. Be safe!

My little punkins'

Lincoln and Anna
Good morning - brisk mornings, mild days and yes, basketball has begun - it is indeed fall. We have season tickets for Tennessee Tech basketball and the first game (exhibition) was last night - lots of fun! I love basketball - but not as much as my babies!!

It's Tuesday - enjoy! I'm off to Murfreesboro, Madison and Nashville today.

Monday, November 07, 2011

Back to work

Well, we're back into it this morning. Time to roll up our sleeves and get going again. Where in the world did that weekend go?

A short week and off to Ohio Friday morning for a long weekend to spoil, I mean see the grandkids. Have a great week!

Vivi Vidi Visa - she came, she saw, she shopped

This is Noema helping her mom shopping yesterday. I need that kind of help!

I see sunshine this morning! It looks great outside. It's almost church time - let's see what message God has in store for us this morning.

Saturday, November 05, 2011


Anna and Lincoln
My body is starting up a bit slow this morning - still cold outside so maybe these old bones are thawing out.

Charles and Leslie Wampler cane through a night ago on the way from Texas to D.C. so we had a great visit. We stayed up too late playing euchre - morning sure came quick!

Have a great Saturday - we're burning daylight!

Dreary Thursday

All my grandkids
You might have to look close, but all of my grandkids are in this photo. Cindy took it in Ohio this week while visiting there. I even see Rachel back there as well.

A fine day today - some rain rolling in and high around 60 - pretty overcast right now. I think a quick Murfreesboro trip is in order.

Great colors

A Tennessee Fall
Good morning - this week seems to be flying - I can't believe it is Wednesday already. Cindy returns this afternoon and evening church with friends. I hope your week is going great!

Spoiling babies

Cindy and Noema
Cindy is having too much fun with the grandkids.

Was it me, or did Halloween just feel like walking though Walmart? I see those same costumes every time I walk through there.
