Random Comments

Eight day ago we had a "typical" Texas rainstorm. You can see the results.

Not only did we have 6 inches of rain, we had a little flooding in the back room. (Jon can demonstrate his carpet laying skills for us when he comes at the end of May.) This weekend we only had 1 inch of rain. Still, it was enough to kill (drown) one of the bushes outside the kitchen window. I dug it out yesterday.

A couple of weeks ago Mom sang in the Lone Star Choir concert. Her first costume was western wear. (Isn't she "HOT" lookin?) Her next concert will be at Lone Star graduation.

Her next costume was suppose to be from some other culture. She used some of the stuff I brought back from New Zealand. (She looks good in any culture, doesn't she?)

34 Years and Counting

Mom and I celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary on April 18. Here we are in Downey, Idaho on that wonderful day. I was a lot skinnier then, but Anne is just as beautiful!

This was taken during the reception in Downey that night. (Check out those sideburns!)

Here we are in our first house in Houston.

This last picture was taken on our cruise in Oct'08. I'm more gray and Anne is even more beautiful.

It has been a wonderful 34 years, and we've only just begun! Along the way, we've picked up Bethany, Jefferson, Jonathan, Leanna. Next came Zak, Vanessa and Crystal. Finally, we can lay claim to Jakson and Storey in our extended family. Ultimately, I expect Leanna will find her "He Who Shall Not Be Named".

We count you as our greatest blessings.
