Fence Project

Another fun sunny day in Rockdale. We took up a useless fence by the hay pasture, 34 metal t-posts, and 10+ wooded posts (with a chain and the tractor) after removing and rolling all the barbed wire first. Wish you all could have been here! Looks really good though. We had a nice rain on Saturday so maybe we will make it until Spring. Posted by Picasa

Another Birthday

I woke up this morning to find that Dianne and Charles were up early making a birthday cake for me. Woohoo!


And thanks for all the thoughts and good wishes. All is well here – not much time to really celebrate a birthday, but its going to be well worth it.

Parent's Night Out

200601271841_00022Took advantage of the church’s baby-sitting services last night to drop out for a couple of hours and grab dinner alone. I don’t think the boys really minded – they had fun playing with all the kids, the toys, and watching movies.

Belated Birthday Pictures

It was a beautiful day for a party. Three birthdays, about 24 kids, and a whole lot of pizza.



As you might guess, Charles didn’t want to have anything to do with the pony. But I was a little surprised that Thomas was really a little unsure of the pony as well.


But that didn’t mean that Charles didn’t have any fun.


And Thomas was able to find a few friends to play with as well.



The rest of the pictures are up in the gallery.

Hog Sighting

Brother Russ went walking early last Sunday morning and came upon a feral hog near the creek, and was able to snap a quick photo. Glad Russ didn't get any closer! They are big. Posted by Picasa

Weekend Project

Russ and Sandy came to visit, and didn't mind helping with the String Project. We're about two-thirds finished. We'll be happy to see these remnants go up in smoke. Posted by Picasa

Quick Trip

Making a quick (1 day) trip up to CES in Vegas today… all is going well… lots of walking and lots of talking… but all very productive, I hope.


The day was just too pretty to be spending it inside all day even if it was to take a look at every new cool device coming out this year. So we had to at least go outside to grab a hot dog for lunch.


And that’s when I spotted this sign on the side of the Hilton. Oh, for just one extra day…
