Been a long hard year on us as a family, and I guess it ended with my wife passing away January 11th, 2016.

My cousin and his wife had flown in from Florida.
He's telling us...
It's been a hard year on my family.
Details still unclear, but it seems my uncle was brush hogging this

So I've tried to put something in her every room that

How's that for todays useless trivia?
80 years ago today, the drive in movie began.
I had a lot of good times, good memories, at our
local drive in. Back in the day when you could get
a whole trunk full of people in.
There were times when we got kicked out. And there
How many here grow corn?
Sweet or field...no difference.
My question is can I grow corn in container
like a five gallon bucket?
Why, you ask?
To confuse the neighbors of course.
My garden is visible from the road. Something people
just naturally look at as they drive by. I'm thinking I...

Shovled six ton of stone today, and I'm worn out.
Well...I didn't actually shovel the stone myself. I watched
my brother do it. I WOULD of had to help, but I'm way ahead
I hid all the other shovels.
Good thing too, because it took him all day. The mere thought
of me having to...
You gotta have one sharp knife. (unlike me and Em, who
are not the sharpest tools in the box)
But....you made the cool gargoyle in you picture? Awesome
job. I've been looking for some good size fellers made in stroyfoam.
Or at least lightweight.
How many hours do you have in him?
Couldn't believe my eyes.
I took my wife to the grocery store this evening. I don't do
that very often. But there was a few things I wanted.
Untill I got there...
Oreos at $4.85 a package? I mean, these weren't even
doublestuffs. Just the dunking kind...

6. Never give up on anybody, miracles happen.
7. Forget the Joneses.
8. Remember someone's name.
In your picture here...what is that on your head, exactly?
It looks cool. (to me)
But what IS it? A hat of some sort, yes. But is it "hard" or
"soft" sided? Where did you ever find it?
Spook...who wishes he had a cool hat. (or maybe, some
hair...then he wouldn't need a hat.)
As you know, my father passed away on Christmas Day.
Quite hard on Mom...56 years of marriage.
Long time together.
Dad left some debts. Debts Mom couldn't handle on her
own. Didn't take some people very long to begin to harass
She's stressed out. Hasn't been resting.
