70 degrees!

 Greetings - loving this global warming - worked at our church's live nativity last night and could have worn shorts - we typically wear long johns!

Went to the local Christmas parade last week - lots of great floats - never saw mules in a parade before! About a dozen wagons with mules.

Our deck is getting close to being done - just waiting on the side panels to be completed - we moved the stairs to opposite side - they work much nicer.

Have a blessed weekend!

Home again. ..

Got Cindy home last night, or maybe I should say this morning around 1am. Was in Murfreesboro late yesterday afternoon,  drove home, ate supper and relaxed and drove back to Nashville to pick her up at the airport. Adele is home too! Thanks for prayers.

Dreary day in Tennessee

Ready for spring ..

It's cold outside - we got in the mid 30's last night - okay, enough of this - back to warm weather!
 Another great week - lots of stuff going on - this next week Cindy heads out to Oregon for awhile and help in birthing babies. Adele is on the way - woohoo! #10 - a great number.
If you need paper plates colored, I've got the gang for you!
Have a great Saturday.

Good afternoon - a beautiful sunny yet cool day in the Upper Cumberlands. Just came in from enjoying being lazy on the back deck for awhile. I hope your week went well - looks like nice weather ahead and continued cooler here - Cindy only has about 10 days before heading off to Oregon - our newest grand-daughter is almost here. Love you all!

A beautiful DRY day

Good afternoon - what a wet week we've had - many inches of rain, cold weather and just nasty out. Yesterday's high in the mid 50's set a low 'high' record for here.
Today is back to normal - sunshine and dry - woohoo!
No big news here -a great week behind us and a great week ahead.
Landed a big job with Hubbard in Pikeville last week- a large chicken hatchery and breeder - God is so good!

Great fall weather

Well the grass is slowing down to one mowing a week or more, the last mowing of the year is in the local fields and they're making the round bales up, pumpkins are for sale everywhere, fall is in the air.
A long but good week - bidding lots of stuff and several new projects coming on line. God is good!

Gave a great weekend.

Ready for Fall

Greetings - this has been a long summer - work-wise, weather-wise, busyness-wise - I'm ready for a break! Wait, we've got 2 babies coming up - oh well, we can rest next year - ha!
Hope you are doing great!

Saturday, September 05, 2015

Beautiful day ahead

Good morning - let's get going, burning daylight!
We mowed last night - but no one to help me drive the mower. Cindy and I are ready for cooler weather to slow this old grass down from growing so much.
Hope your day is great - love you!

Saturday, August 29, 2015

Cooler weather

Good morning - we've been having cool evenings and not too hot days for the past week - very pleasant.  Well, home alone again - no grand-kids, family or in-laws - if you're bored, come on by!

A good week behind us and looking forward to another one ahead.  Can't believe September is upon us.

Love you all!

Home alone

Well, back to normal - a least for a day or so. Neidon is home and Cindy is home and I is home too!
Well, looks like Rachel and Darin are having a boy!! Neidon won't be alone! Grandkids are great.

Yard mowed last night, breakfast out in a bit and a few errands today - enjoy!

Sunday, August 16, 2015

Sunshine is great

A beautiful day here in the upper Cumberlands - around 83 degrees and sunshine.
We're still enjoying having Neidon with us - he returns home this week and back to normal again.
Work is staying busy for Cindy and me - we're ready for fall and for things to slow down a bit - slow is good.
Hope you've had a great day at church - God is good.

Any final request?

Hang on

Fair fun

No comment required. ...

MADD walk

Opening photos for MADD walk. Lots of fun.

Time to paint

Good afternoon! Here is a photo of Reed painting his home - the old paint has been affected by the sea salt air too long and turned dull and grey - let's see how a new brighter color fares!

A great week ahead - here is a recent quote I read in a book by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield as she wrestled with God - "The worldview conflict was this: I went from being someone who felt that I was responsible and entitled to interrogate the Bible to someone who believed that the Bible had authority over my life and therefore had the responsibility and entitlement to interrogate me."

Another visitor

Greetings - we've got Neidon visiting for a week or so. He got here in time to go to the county fair with us last night.
This morning we did a fund-raiser walk for MADD of Tennessee, got home mowed and finally crashing- woohoo!
God is good!

A fine day

Good afternoon! A beautiful day here in central Tennessee. We've been to church, out to eat, a bit of shopping and now home.

A busy but good week ahead - hold on here we go!

Saturday, August 01, 2015


Good morning - hope you had a great week. A bit slower this past week before a couple of busy weeks ahead of us.
Enough sunshine and rain that when we mow every 5 to 6 days it feels like we've waited too long.
Cindy's budget passed last week for the county - woohoo! No new taxes!
A couple of errands today, work on SS lesson and getting ready for a new week. Looks like we're staying in the 80's today - we have unusually hot and very humid weather the past month or more.
Have a great day!

Ahhh ... Saturday ...

Well, just the 2 of us again - Kaireia is back home and we're grandchild-less for awhile.

We're in the dog days of summer - we've also been getting enough rain the lawn is growing like crazy. I hate to say I'm sort of ready for fall .....

Have a great Saturday - love you all!

Sunday, July 19, 2015

Sunndy sunny Sunday

A warm but nice day here in Cookeville - a great church service and we're off to a great new week.

Enjoying having Kaireia around - grandma spoils her all day and I straighten her out every evening.

Have a great week!

God is good!

Dog days

Well, 90 degree weather with high humidity does not make it very pleasant for outside activities.

Enjoying Kaireia with us this week - she's sure growing up. (Picture of Kardia who visited a few weeks ago)

Still traveling to Nashville and locally at least once a week - bidding on lots of stuff, just need something to break - that's construction!

Cindy has her county budget done - just need it voted through now - hope all goes well.

Hope your summer is going well - love you all!

Saturday, July 04, 2015

Still raining ...

Greetings - another wet and overcast day here - hopefully the fireworks don't get rained out tonight.
We're having a big 4th event at church today - we set up tents and other stuff earlier - the main event starts at 5pm - food, games, music with fireworks at 7pm or so. We're a block from the city fairgrounds so we can watch from the church's front yard - should be fun. Hope your 4th is going well.

Rain, rain and more rain

Well, a few days of rain with extreme rain yesterday and last night. Last night we saw raised water in the yards around us higher than we've ever seen it before.

I'm off work today - a long weekend - hopefully the rain holds off some.
Be safe!

She's back!

Cindy made it back last night and off at a county budget meeting this morning.  Lots of rain here. ... be blessed!

A quiet Saturday

Greetings - mighty quiet around here - Cindy in Oregon with Kardia visiting the Adams gang - sounds like they are having a great time.
Hot and humid here - mowed the grass this morning - it rained the past couple of afternoon/evenings so finally had it dry enough to get it done.
A good week - hope you are all doing okay.

I hear mowers ...

Good morning - sure glad we mowed Thursday evening - sounds like all of my neighbors are out there catching up on their mowing this morning. More rain in the forecast - hopefully so, for us at least.
Hope you are all safe and sound - lots of rain down in Texas - pictures make it look pretty bad. We think and pray for you all daily.
Have a blessed Saturday!
