Because WA Asked




Me, Jim, & Melissa with his two youngest (Jonathan & Zachary) and Melissa's granddaughter Angie. That makes the two little boys Angie's uncles.

My t-shirt says something like "Save the Earth - Duct Tape Won't Fix Everything".



Same group with son Timothy added




Jim with his older kids (Samantha, her boyfriend, "little" Jim, and Michael). Sammie is 19, Jim 17, and Michael almost 16. These were taken in my back yard on Christmas day and of course the baby is Jonathan again. Melissa and Zachary had both come down with colds and didn't want to take a chance with the (then) very young baby.

Most of these are over on the other blog but WA suggested I post a few of them here. If you're really gluttons for punishment, you can go to "granny" and click on the two galleries listed on the sidebar. Too many pictures.

Jim's brother Tim has been chatting with him on the phone and has learned that Camp Sikes has a Starbucks. I don't know why that strikes me as both bizarre and hilarious but it does.

Sorry I haven't been posting much lately. I explained on the other blog that this little room where my computer lives gets very warm and between that and the problems I've had with my vision, I don't spend too much time in here. Perhaps when our weather cools (and I'm not writing something someone else has covered far better than I), I'll be posting more.

Meantime, hope all goes well with all of you.

Oh..My..Gawd! I have heard it al!! Wonder if their prices are any lower for the soldiers? It's so hard to get my mind around the way soldiers have to pay for stuff now. When I was in, I paid for cigarettes and junk food - and that was IT! Further, people were always giving me stuff. Airlines used to move me up to first class AL the time! I can't believe what's being done to the American Soldier.
