This was a shot taken the first day of their trip showing Mt. Shasta in the background. They all claimed to have had a good time. The boys slept in their tent and Randy in the back of the pick-up, in which he had a mattress. Said it was comfortable except for the voracious mosquito’s. [...]

We sent the boys off with Grampa to go camping and Karen and I went to Rogue River to ride the jet boat up Hellgate Canyon with Rosy & Rex. (third row left side) It was over 100 degrees so getting soaked, as the pilots of these boats make sure you are, was not only [...]
This ground cover has been growing in this barrel for at least 5 years and I’ve never seen it bloom before! I think this is the Year Of The Plants. It’s been cool and wet and, frankly, dreary for people but my plants have thrived (or it that thriven?) on it. Everything has bloomed beautifully, [...]
Grampa’s Co. sponsors a race car so they all packed up and went to the fair to watch the races. (No, they didn’t win) but they did have a good time and enjoyed the important part of the midway… food and fairings!

I wish one of the photo’s I tried to take of the “snow” falling would come out. It’s been at it for sometime now but today it has been really thick! As most of you probably know, it’s cottonwood fuzz. They bloom every year and if each of these seeds got lucky the planet would [...]
Some friends came in with this little guy that they’d rescued off a back road. Just in case, I called the local rescue gal and she advised putting it back as I was pretty sure she would, so that’s what we did. It seemed very happy to be back and trotted off and hid under [...]
This morning instead of the electronic Gameboy, they found the Monopoly board game. Their mom said it was one of her fav’s so they seem to have some idea of how it goes, but Shane, who is sometimes rather too trusting, is allowing Mac to dictate the rules. I sit here in the house listening [...]
The boys live in the city and can’t have a dog at their apartment but they are certainly enjoying ours. and I think the dogs want to go home with them, too! Here’s Mac and Cori have a rather rowdy tug-a-war in the living room.
