Sep 2, 2010 - Glen's Fever is All Better....
No, he isn't sick, and hasn't been! However, he has had "truck fever"! The fever has been cured....the Saturn Vue has been traded in on the new pick up in the photos! The new GMC pick-up was picked up yesterday afternoon. This truck has everything we wanted, plus several more items. We are enjoying the ride! After spending the time with Gary and Evelyn this summer...and their pick-up, there has been lots of conversation about the advantages of having a pick up. This visit to the Poplar Bluff area is coming to an end. We are getting Darin...Jump to full entry
Aug 31, 2010 - Sh-h-h, it's quiet time!
We enjoyed a quiet morning at home this morning. This afternoon we drove to Poplar Bluff where we shortened the list of errands we have for this area of the state. Not all errands were done; there will be another trip to Poplar Bluff tomorrow. Glen did stop by his former place of employment for a short visit with two or three or four people. I hung a hummingbird feeder this morning. A ruby throated hummingbird found it in less than five minutes. Instant entertainment.Jump to full entry

The old bridge was built and opened in 1930, if I remember correctly. Vehicles...size and weight....have...Jump to full entry
Aug 30, 2010 - Out of the Black Hole Wireless Service
Sunday was a fun day! We drove my mother to the new-to-them home of my brother and his wife in Huntsville, MO. My brother, Ron, and wife, Micki, just moved there from Iowa. Ron is a ranch manager for Circle A Angus Ranches. There are ranches in Huntsville, Iberia, and Stockton, Missouri. Ron is now managing the the feeder calves' operation at the Huntsville Ranch. The feeding barn is a half-mile plus 100 feet long. It is quite an operation. We had a great visit with Ron and Micki and enjoyed seeing their home. After returning "home"...to...Jump to full entry
