It's Friday alread? I'm shocked!

Good morning - off to Rockwood this morning, paperwork this afternoon and a leadership retreat tonight and tomorrow.

About 10 degrees again this morning, but supposedly up in the 40's today - it'll feel like a heat wave.

Hope you've had a great week - God is good!

10 degrees outside this morning

I'm dreaming of spring even more this morning - I ... HATE ... COLD ...!

Well, just another paperwork day ahead - woo ... hoo!

I've gotten 7 bids out this week so far - a small break today and tomorrow until it starts up again next week - I'm tired of being needed - ha!

Hang on, we're almost there ...

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

Wednesday already!

Wow - another fast week - I've put 3 bids out the door this week and 3 to go before we're over - we win about a third of our bids so I guess the more the merrier!

It appears our snow missed us, but it's downright cold again today - we're tired of these 20 degree nights - my heat unit just keeps a pluggin' away.

Cindy has been a learnin' about the County Commissioner position - but it looks like she got to shake some hands and kiss some babies first - oh yes, there's fund raising too - an interesting business!

Have a blessed day! Love you all ...

Hiho hiho back to work ...

Good morning - mid 20's out there - cold weather is back for a spell.

Another wild week ahead - tons of bids and paperwork to get out - I usually go into the week wondering how can I get it all done and look back on Friday exhausted wondering how it actually did get done!

Last Tech girl's home bball game tonight - should be fun.

Well, hang on - we're off and running ...

Another fine day ahead

Greetings - we went to a local park yesterday and had a pleasant hike - it even felt warm! We're getting spring fever ...

Tech men won their last home game of the season last night - now 2 more roads trips and they're done for the year - girls play Monday night - it's been a fun season. (Basketball is always fun!)

No news - just trying to figure out how to run a County Commissioner campaign - yards signs and door knocking, here we come!

Saturday, February 22, 2014

Super duper Saturday

Good morning - another fine day ahead - starting off a bit chilly but supposed to warm right up.
The usual breakfast out and runnin' errands - basketball at Tech tonight and relaxin' in between.

Revelation 19:14

The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean.

As we ride into the sunset ...

It's Friday! Another nice day ahead - wow, what a storm that was last night - thunderstorm and tornado watch all night - I admit I slept through a lot of it.
Well, Cindy is officially running for 5th District County Commissioner in our county as of yesterday - it's official. Primaries in May and election in August - she's off and running! We need a politician in the family.

Wednesday, February 19, 2014

We're halfway there ...

Salutations on a beautiful Wednesday - it's gonna be another warm day in the beautiful Upper Cumberlands of Tennessee. We're enjoying each moment of this great weather while it lasts.
Lots of paperwork for me and walking for Cindy - more on that soon - but for now, aren't you glad God holds your future! Woohoo!

Warm weather!

I drove back from Bowling Green yesterday though a lot of rain and wind - it must have brought in some warmer weather for a spell - we'll enjoy it while it's here!

Tons of catch up work today - you always pay when you're out of the office a day!

Have a good one!

Scanning old photos

We're scanning old photos today - the good thing is most our our photos are digital today so our kids may not have to do this as much .... hmmm ... thinking of all of our photo albums ... maybe not.

This photo is of my grandparents (my mom's folks) taken in 1954 - same year I was born.

20 degrees!!

Well - no warm weather yet - it started raining hard yesterday, got windy and a cold front came though again. Today went from a high of 50 to a high of maybe 30 if we're lucky. At least we can see the sun today!

Breakfast and a few errands this morning - now on to SS lesson and a few other paperwork items. Saturdays are pleasant ...

Psalm 37:7
Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.

It's Friday .. wrap up the paperwork ...

Good morning - we had a late basketball game last night and got home around 9:15 or so - of course Tech won so it was even more fun!
Paperwork this morning and Rockwood this afternoon - visiting a zinc plant and turn in some quotes.

Have a great day - the weekend is upon us!

I'm tired of cold weather

Greetings - I cancelled my Murfreesboro trip - they got freezing rain and we got a touch of weather last night too - so rather safe than sorry.

We're ready for spring - this cold weather has gone on way too long this year - I almost forgot what it's like to go out without a heavy coat and all bundled up.

Have a blessed day - we're off and running ...

Snow event ...?

Good morning - we're told we're getting a 'snow event' later today - heard that before. Actually we've been mostly in the 20's for several months now, but very little snow. So I guess we'll believe it when we see it!

Paperwork this morning and a meeting in Livingston this afternoon - we're off!

PS I'm off super early tomorrow morning to Murfreesboro - if you don't see a photo you know why.

Buenos dias amigos ...

Another fine (but cold) day ahead - we're starting off at 14 degrees - it only can get better!

Wishing we had some grand-kids to spoil, er ... I mean educate in the finer points of life.

Have a blessed day!

Monday, February 10, 2014


We haven't seen the sun for what seems like forever - it gets so depressing sometimes.I wish it would just snow and get it over with - time to move on ...

Another big week ahead - hope you are all doing well - have a good one!

Spring fever

Greetings - have any of you seen the sun for awhile? Send it our way if you have - we're getting spring fever down here in Tennessee!

Another cold week ahead - I guess we are still in February - we're actually in the 30's today so it is sort of a heat wave.

Have a blessed week!

Saturday, February 08, 2014


Good morning - snow and 31 out - a real heat wave. We've been in the 20's most of the week so this is great.

Work is crazy as always so weekends are nice. Off to breakfast in a bit and then some errands - life is good.

Have a blessed day!

Friday, February 07, 2014


We're having multiple days below freezing this winter; in fact probably more like mid 20's, so office fountain has looked great all winter. Thought you'd enjoy seeing.

Thursday, February 06, 2014

What's cold without snow?

Another chilly day - one day closer to spring and one day closer to Friday - both good.

Nothing new - still cold, work goes on and life is good.

Have a great Friday!

Wednesday, February 05, 2014

Cold, rainy, sleety, snowy day ...

Greetings - what a miserable weather day - okay, now repeat ... "I will be content in all things" ... ok, I still don't enjoy the cold but at least I remember who's in control.

Hope your week is going well - love you all!

Tuesday, February 04, 2014

Winter is longgggg....

Greetings - another great day - Monterey this morning and lots of paperwork the rest of the day - woohoo! (or not ...)

I hope you're day went well - Ken, hope you are doing better - get well my friend.

(PS Got to see lots of friends when we visited San Antonio!)

Mondays are yucky

Greetings - a good but cold day - we're off and running.

No news here - another great week ahead - what exciting things does God have in store for us? Are you even watching for it?

Isaiah 41:13-14

For I, the Lord your God,
    hold your right hand;
it is I who say to you, “Fear not,
    I am the one who helps you.”

Getting cold

Greetings on this chilly Sunday. We started off at midnight in the mid 50's and are supposed to be at freezing by midnight tonight. I was ready for winter to be behind us.

A new day and a new week - what a great way to start it at church today - God is good!

Saturday, February 01, 2014

It's the weekend - woohoo

A good but long week - sure glad for a weekend - a spot of warmer weather before the cold returns. Enjoy it while we can.

No grand-kids so mighty quiet around here. Off to breakfast and errands in a bit - have a blessed day.
