Well I’m down here near Orlando, FL visiting with Peg’s sister and family. Their daughter is graduating high school and Peg has been looking for a good excuse to visit. Works out like peanut butter and jelly I guess! Anyway this is the first time I’ve met this part of the family and they’re all […]

Happy Mothers Day!

Thank you Mom for everything you’ve done for me over the years. With your love and guidence I have become the man that I am today. It is so nice to know that I can come to you and talk with you about anything. Your love and caring show through in more ways than you […]

Stairway To The Door

Saturday morning started with my Dad coming over. He, Peg, and myself went down to BJ Pumpernickel’s for a nice breakfast before getting to work. The back steps on the house have been kind of loose for the last couple month. So my dad agreed to come down and help fix them up. Since he […]

Big Boots

Uncle Leonard, you will be missed. It’s hard for me to write about him as I’m worried that my words are not adequate. He was always such a big man to me. He was one of those guys who grew up in town and became part of it. His daughters and family were the most […]
