Jan 2, 2018 - The New Year Begins

Michael left after breakfast on the 27th to drive down to Houston to see his friend, and our previous neighbor, Haap. It is always curious to see what people do with their lives. We knew this young man from junior high and on through high school. We never would have dreamed he would become a tattoo artist with his own shop. Michael had never expressed a desire to have a tattoo so we were a little surprised when we learned of his plans. Haap was supposed to be designing something for him. We told him he had to send pictures. I was expecting...

Dec 27, 2017 - Christmas, Before and After

We didn't go anywhere for a couple of days, just stayed home and enjoyed getting to know grandson Canaan. The last time we had seen him he was only a baby. We were impressed than at how happy he was and how well he slept through the night. He is still a happy child, always smiling or laughing. He is 19 months old and well advanced in motor skills and language, both verbal and American Sign. He ran everywhere, even outside on uneven ground. He advanced from the sit and slide method of steps to going up and down standing up while we were...

Dec 22, 2017 - At Ambers

We began the last leg of the trip to Texas on the 19th. The rain had stopped, although there was little sunshine. It was an uneventful 3-day trip across Mississippi and Louisiana, through Houston and up north of Austin to Liberty Hill. We could still see a lot of water damage along the way, especially in Houston where there was still a lot of reconstruction going on. We arrived on the 19th and made it into their backyard safely, although no without leaving some deep tire tracks. They had had a lot of rain recently and the yard was not yet...

Oct 29, 2016 - Liberty Hill Sculpture Garden

This morning I woke up well before the alarm went off but decided to get up anyway. As it happened, this was a good decision because it gave me time to go to Randall’s to vote before heading out on my adventure of the day. I even found a parking space right in front of the door. There were only five or six people ahead of me in the line and it moved quickly. Then I was on my way to meet Donette Harpole in Liberty Hill to visit the International Sculpture Park. The Sculpture Park is the product of the first international symposium in the...

Apr 4, 2008 - Visit with Stuart and Regina

This day has been one of unexpected twists and turns. It started off early this morning with strong thunderstorms, including a little hail. I was awakened by my NOAA radio about 5:30 and was never able to go back to sleep because of frequent additional storm warnings. I finally got up at 7:30. Val and I had planned to meet at Seward's Junction at 11:30 and carpool from there to Liberty Hill to visit Stuart and Regina. Since I was up early, I decided that I'd have time to take Sweet Pea for her annual inspection and then meet Val. On the...

Jan 23, 2008 - Visit with Regina

Today it has been very foggy all day but Val, Janie and I continued with our plans to visit Regina and Stuart. Visibility in some places was only about one-tenth of a mile! Because it was getting close to noon, we stopped first at a Subway in Liberty Hill for lunch. My chicken noodle soup and small sub certainly hit the spot. Stuart had kept our secret very well so Regina was totally surprised. Val had baked her a German's chocolate cake. Regina was feeling much better and was in excellent spirits. We hope and pray that she will be well...

Oct 27, 2006 - Visit with Friends in Liberty Hill

FRIDAY This morning I did last-minute laundry and then headed out to run errands. First, I went to CompUSA to leave my Olympus digital camera for repairs -- to the tune of $205. I debated whether to even have it repaired at all but decided that it might be useful to have a backup in case of problems with the new FujiFilm camera which I had bought in Lacey, Washington. Then I headed to Discount Tire Store to see what kind of deal I could get for the ruined Michelin tires. They refunded nearly $360 as road hazard adjustments for the two...
