Hi all – from a swing on the waterfront park in downtown Beaufort, SC. Just made a quick weekend trip down to the area, had a good time. Also swung by Tybee island, off the coast of Savannah – pretty rainbow over the ocean:

Shot this pix a couple weeks ago at Bolton Park, really neat pine tree that’s been there for years. Kids could climb up it and just sit on it. And lots of ’em did.

Went by a few days ago, and Here

Happy Friday – A little disturbing….. but cute

June 17, 2005 1 comment

WooHoo it’s Friday!!! Little Matt is all dressed up and ready to go out on the town [grin]. I don’t remember how he came to be dressed like this, but I’m pretty sure he requested it! Not much going on here, been hot, so we’ve been spending as much time in the pool as possible. No bites on the house…. but we’re hopeful. We’ll figure something out, even if we have to become landlords or something. Everyone is starting to feel better, just a few left over sniffles and nagging coughs. Ear infections (except Taya’s) are better, no more fevers or anything. I think the prayers did their thing. Thank you!!! Keep them coming in our direction about the house and our other plans/projects. They work, and are appreciated more than you know. I hope everyone is doing well, I hear the weather up north is a tad warm too, hope everyone is managing to stay comfy. I’ll take 95 degree weather any day, over that cold, but I know not everyone feels the same way. Stay cool, stay comfy, drink lots of [insert favorite beverage] and enjoy the weekend!!!!

Until next time…..

HUH? – Jackson not guilty

June 13, 2005 Leave a comment

Gotta put my 2 cents in on this shocker……..

Jackson not guilty on all counts – Michael Jackson Trial – MSNBC.com

Ok, this is a little much! I haven’t been following the trial as closely as some have, in fact I didn’t even realize today was the big verdict…

Hard to believe you can say on national TV that you “sleep with young boys”, the police find kiddie porn in your bedroom (the same room you “sleep with young boys”) and yet STILL there not be enough of a case to be convicted. Wow.

Kinda makes me lose faith even more in our legal system. Sad, you can sue a major corporation because they don’t have warning labels on their coffee cups that the contents may be hot, but yet you can get off scot free in a case like this.

2 words –

Dis

Gusting

Michael Jackson is weird. No, beyond weird, I guess we can go so far as to say a freak. That alone isn’t enough to make him guilty. But this isn’t the first time these type of accusations have come up. Seems like there’s a common theme here. Wonder how many more times this is gonna come up. Don’t wanna know. All I know is, my kids will NEVER get ANYWHERE NEAR him. Guilty/not guilty, I just don’t trust him. And that’s my 2 cents, and then some

Until next time…..

Let’s try this again

Let’s try this again

We decided what the heck, let’s put the pool up this year. If need be we can take it down quick enough (fingers crossed!!) 1500 pounds of sand later, I think it might be close enough to level to actually use it this time around.
With the deforestation down the hill, the tree frogs have lost a lot of their habitats, so they’ve moved up closer to us. We’ve had one hanging out around us all day, just fished him out of the pool 🙂
Girls aren't supposed to be into frogs!!
Kids had a blast playing with him, Hannah has always loved stuffed/ceramic/plastic/toy frogs, and she loves the real thing just as much. Y'know, she's always liked frogs.
Austin didn’t object to having it sit on his head for a bit.
Austin too
Ian thought that “was yucky”, but did hold him for a little bit. Weird, slimy fun on a Sunday 🙂

Looks like all the colds and stuff are starting to subside. WooHoo!! Hope everyone’s doing alright!

Until next time…..

Update on TS stuff, and found an interesting weather site.

June 10, 2005 Leave a comment

Found an interesting web site – if you’re interested in watching live footage from inside a hurricane, the guys from HurricaneTrack.com will be more than happy to oblige.

Talked to Kathryn, she’s gonna pack up an overnite bag, just in case weather gets bad and they need to head to a shelter. But they’re not gonna have any pudding to eat, because someone ate the pudding out of their hurricane kit 🙂
The current track of TS Arlene looks like it will hit right on the MS/AL border – just about in their front yard. They should be fine though!!

Until next time…..

AWW MAN!!! – Already? – NHC – TS Arlene

June 10, 2005 Leave a comment

Our good friends at the National Hurricane Center / Tropical Prediction Center have already picked up a storm out there – good old “ARLENE”. For some reason Dexy’s Midnight Runners “Come on Eileen” keeps running thru my head. Yes, I’m weird 🙂
Kinda bummed out about things right now….. Whole house is sick – ear infections, colds, sinus infections, pinkeye. Everyone either has green snot, crusty eyes, a hacking cough, or an inner ear infection that seems resistant to antibiotics. Our Big Dream seems to be going nowhere, kinda losing hope on it. Seems like we’ve been hoping and praying for miracles for a long time and nothing concrete is happening…… Very discouraging.
Please pray for us, we need it! Things seem to be working against us right now or something. I’m confident things will turn around, just don’t see a way out right now……… 😦
And now this storm looks like it’s heading Kathryn’s way again…..[groan]….. Duck and cover. At least I feel confident that Adam, Kathryn and Anthony have a safe place they can go. Nothing like a bomb shelter to weather out a storm.
Well, I guess that’s all from here today.

Until next time…..
