Some Dear Friends...

Herb and Sharon

...stopped by for a visit...and they're more than friends; Herb was my employer for almost 4 decades.

He accomplished many things during those years, not the least of which was maintaining an active and honest Christian witness in the often bruising world of business.

By God's grace, the good things my family and I enjoyed through the years sprang from my association with Herb and his company.

It was delightful to share some good wine...

...delicious food Karen prepared, and great conversation on a gorgeous summer afternoon.

There is progress on my grandson's home... spite of how it may look.

They’re repairing / rebuilding walls and ceilings throughout his new place, and as with most things in life, it's a race against a deadline.

He may end up couch surfing for a night or three, but they're plowing through the tough stuff now and things should start coming together in the next couple of weeks.

Stay tuned.

Up in Larry's neck of the woods, life at the lake is a real struggle...

tough day on the docks for Mr. Squirrel this chillaxing squirrel attests.

Thankfully it's not all toil and sweat... he found time to Pit Boss for an RBOR racing friend (Larry, that is...not the squirrel).

A couple of very long days at the off road course, but at the end it's pizza and beer and gorgeous sunsets by the lake...

Not all bad.

Hickory golf was about the usual for me...

...except without the well dressed posse there to witness it.

Only managed 2 pars and 3 bogeys this outing.

The rest were the uglier second (and third) cousins of the know, relatives you'd rather not admit are actually part of your family...

...but what are you going to do?

They're blood, so break me off a piece of that chaw...

...wouldja Cletus?

Lord willing, we’ll tee it up next week and try again.

It's that time, so everyone form a single line...

...and let's conga through the parting shots department, shall we?

ain't it the truth

caught in the act

admit it; he's right

a recent visitor to our local grocery store

we would have, had they been selling anything

After calm and careful consideration, I've concluded...'s definitely time to press the button.

We're starting August, and despite our very best efforts, summer is once again slipping away.

You know what that means...

...oh yeah...Summer's packing up and headed to the station...again.

Thankfully she's walking and it's gonna take a while, so A) do NOT give her a ride, and B) get crackin'! on the rest of your summer fun activities!

Won't be long before... know.

later, mcm fans...
