As I was leaving an eating place well after noon Tuesday, I thought I recognized a guy who had just driven up in a pickup and got out. Then I recognized the lady with him for sure – Joan Walker. It was her youngest, Richard, who had been driving her pickup. His sunglasses had partially

At lunch the other day, some of the guys were talking about passport photos the many people may need soon with changes in the ID law. I’ve been doing passport photos for maybe 30 years. Make an appointment with me. $15. Quick turn around. My trip to the goal line a long time before the

Remember when I told you that three big things happened during the Picnic and I only told you two of them? Well, I can tell you the third one now. I’ve forgotten what the first two were in the excitement over this one. Davis, Erica and Ben kidnapped Adrian and Van after they picked them

On her way to the office from somewhere Monday, Kimball encountered major activity at the school construction site. She had her cell phone with her which she purchased specifically to take pictures. I would have felt under gunned with it, but she put it to good use taking photos of the crew installing the huge

It was an unusual Picnic for three big reasons. No. 1 – because Adrian was here with our grandson, Van. At almost nine months, he couldn’t have cared less about the Picnic.

We’ll have an Eagles Burger to prepare our innards for three days  of Picnic food. I just asked Kimball if we had any Class Reunion pictures scheduled for the Picnic.

Kimball just showed me her cell phone with a photo of Van with all of his teeth, both of them, barely breaking his bottom gum line. He just turned eight months. Adrian cut her first tooth at four months and two days. – I got out of the hospital on Tuesday, July 3, and felt
