Jun 11, 2020 - Visit with the Block family

Dolores & I got to spend the afternoon with Angie. Draven, & Kanan! Dolores got them real nice duffel bags with a card and money hidden inside. I gave them money for their graduation. It was good visiting with these teenagers because they actually talked with us! So many I have been in contact with were silent at this stage of their lives. Their new (1 year) dog, Nitro, didn’t seem to like me at all! Angie had to put the bark collar on him, which calmed him right down until he allowed me to get near him and give him a pet. Strange!

Sep 3, 2016 - Birthday Party!

15 years ago, on 9/10, twin boys were born to my niece, Angela. Lance and she named them Draven and Kanan and for years, I had a hard time telling them apart. Now, I finally can! Family tradition has it that they celebrate their birthday over Labor Day weekend and that is why it is a week early. They still open gifts together and blow out the candles together. They are good, smart boys - very respectful and fun to be around!

Sep 2, 2012 - Birthday Party!

My great nephews were born on September 10, 2001 but it's become a tradition to celebrate it on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend, and so it was this year, too. The remnants of hurricane Isaac came around so it rained most of the time, but that didn't dampen the party. Angela & Lance bought plenty of pizza and birthday gifts. There were also 2 cakes! The boys got lots of Xbox games and electric guitars with all the trimmings!

May 26, 2012 - Take me out to the Ballgame

I am glad I had the opportunity to watch my 10 year old great nephews, Draven & Kanan, play baseball. It was a very hot day, but they did great and their team won the game! I'm proud of you boys! We had pizza and games at their house afterward and it was a great day for all!
