Over the hump

Good morning - it's Thursday already - what a quick week.
Cindy left a few minutes ago to Ohio and I leave soon to work - a great day ahead.
We finished Citizen's Sheriff's Academy this week and next week is just the graduation. This week we met the SWAT team and got to shoot a lot of the different guns the police force use and carry every day. Cindy is a natural - her shotgun skills were amazing.
Warm weather is slowly coming back again - ready for it to stay.
Have a great day - love you all!

Chilly Sunday

Good morning - a great service today at church - back home for a few hours and then return to church again.
Only 60 degrees as the high today and the same most of the week - maybe our last cool spell?

Have a great week and praise God for another chance to shine for Him!

Catch up Saturday

 Greetings - well, the end of another great week. We had to drive to Knoxville yesterday for a graduation at Johnson Bible College of our minister's daughter - and our 2 hour drive turned into about a 4 hour drive with traffic, wrecks and road construction. We were 10 minutes late to a graduation that we thought we'd be there hours early.
Slept late, breakfast at home by my star cook and now catching up on some paperwork. A great day ahead.
You all have a blessed day - Happy 4th birthday to Lincoln!!

Sleepless in Tennessee

Greetings - it's been an extremely busy year for us so far this year. I think we've another couple of months and maybe we can get back to some form of normalcy.

Cindy is on the budget committee for the County Commissioners which will add a meeting or two a week for the next month or more to her already crazy schedule. I'm now the secretary of the local Republican party - for this county and I also got placed on the county's election Commission - and was made chairman in the past week as well.

Fortunately, we're about to wrap up our weekly classes with the Sheriff's department in two more weeks so we'll get back one night a week plus I'm done teaching on Wednesday nights at church until at least this fall.

Well, Galen and Charlotte are gone - they've officially moved to Florida this week - we were blessed to have them spend a couple of nights with us before they left (unfortunately we had meetings both nights) but we did get to visit some with them before they took off.

 We've been so busy at nights, I ran home on Wednesday so we could mow our yard at lunch - now that's some fun!

Well, better go - sure miss you all and pray your week is going fantastic!

The truck is gone, long live the truck ...

Good morning - well, we sold the truck this week and bought a new car. We had about 225,000 miles on the truck so never say a Nissan can't hold up. You know I'm partial to Fords and this car caught my eye - white is a great color too! Wonder if this will go 16 years!
Same old stuff going on here - meetings almost every night and lots of activity. I'm now the secretary of our county's Republican party and I recently got appointed to the election Commission board for our county as well - let's see if I can catch up to Cindy getting my photo in the paper! Probably not. Love you all - have a blessed day.

Have a blessed week!!

Worn out ...

Well, we had Rachel and her kids for the last week plus a lot of other stuff - great times and we're flat worn out! A few errands this morning and then we need to mow once the grass dries out - some rain yesterday and more projected today so we'll catch it hopefully between showers.
Have a blessed day!
