Wedding Graffitti 5-24-08

Well, we did it. We re-wed on May 23rd. It was about 2 weeks earlier than I had originally anticipated but it was so that Annette wouldn't have to pay for another month in her apartment. It was along weekend and all the kids could be here if they wanted. I was hapopy to start over again. I don't think there are many of us that actually do this THREE times but, none the less, it's done and I'm grateful and happy for it. We all went out as a family on Friday and had a wonderful dinner. Crit and Nick was the only ones that couldn't be there. Other than that. It was a family affair like last time. Ha ha ha ha. Anyway... the house is nearly all in order, the walls and furnishings are nearly all in place and life is continuing on as it should. Life is good and I'm grateful for it and all my family too.

I woke up to see someone (I know who it was too) had tagged the truck. Leaving cute little messages of the beloved event! I think the people who tagged it are not too far behind Annette and I.

This last Weekend 5-17-08

Annette and I went down to see Missy and Thom. Also we stopped in to see her brother Darren and his little family that is growing up so fine and all. That Darren is quite a musician. He showed me what he was doing and how he was creating an entire orchestra with his computer! How cool was that. Anyway, I had to go down to meet with a client and we incorporated the trip with visiting Missy. Here's a few snap shots of them. Tom is an excellent barbee man! He does a great job. I need to learn from them how to cook over a grill. I haven't developed that talent yet.

Also, the band blog is up and running now. Go check it out. I think I'll ask Seth to let me put one together for the old Looking Back Band too.

Ellory's Blessing

Last Sunday we had Ellory blessed. It was a fun time because all the family was there. We missed missy but it was fun having Nick's mom, her family and all of her aunts anuncles were at the house. It made me think that I'd better clean up my Redneck backyard and make it look good. Anyway, I forgot my camer and we had a houseful. Critter did snap one of her in her blessing dress and she sent it to me. David blessed her and it was funny because he first blessed her and then gave her the name of Ellory jane Perez!!!!! OPPS!!!! He fixed it by saying Ellory Jane Howe! He was so nervous. Anyway, Davey sure loves little Ellory and she loves him. He can make any baby smile. He's like his grampa Anderrsen that way. This family is so good to be a part of...hey wait...they can't help but be related to me! ha ha ha

I Love Them All

Redneck America- Gotta Love It.

This last week I went to Leadore Idaho for my annual visit with the Jr. Econmics students of Leadore School. Kim Sharp, the teacher has invited m\e upmthere for years and I enjoy going there so much because the drive gets me away from my office and the 2 hour drive gives me a reason to think about all that has to happen to be successful in life.

The first time I went to Leadore was back in 1981 and I remember rolling into this little town, turning off the highway and on to one of four streets that goes west. It was like going back in time at least 100 years. I remember the first time I drove in, I drove past this same pile of cars, maybe with one or two less. I also remember a jack rabbit just calmly hoping past the cars in front of me like he was a regular pedestrian there in town. Anyway, I love going there, the people are wonderful and friendly and are the heart of this country. Anyway, I decided to take the camera and grab a couple of redneck shots!! Cool huh?
