Jul 1, 2012 - Last of the CO fire....!
These are some of the pictures Lauri & Dave took from their house before they had to evacuate! Guess the smoke was even lower and thicker before they got out of there!!! They were blessed that they were safe from the fire! This is a picture of a community less than 2 miles west of their house! http://www.springsgov.com/units/communications/WaldoFire_PreliminaryDamageAssessment_062912_8pm.pdf Again thank you all for your thoughts and prayers! Will update you on the finishing touches to Jodi's place tomorrow! We hope to head out tomorrow...Jump to full entry
Jun 29, 2012 - Lauri back home!
Finally Lauri called this morning to say that all was well with their place! They were told not to unpack just in case but she said it doesn't even smell smokey INSIDE... outside is bad! Luckily they don't have a view of the really burned areas. They are in an area bordered by East/West Rockrimmon and South Rockrimmon. if anyone has been looking at maps... https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=202018096962390235287.0004c3a02b8e512405f83&msa=0&ll=38.846125,-104.902954&spn=0.893077,1.783905 Don't know if that will come up ok or not.

Jun 27, 2012 - A few unrelated pics... :>
Two pictures of the deck project we didn't really plan on doing yet but here we go! Long story! ha The rest of the pictures are of Janaya and the Great Hair Color Escapade! Also long funny story... Brought Jodi home about 1:00 after her surgery... she slept most of the day but doesn't seem to be having much pain yet. So far so good... the biopsy will come back next week but the Dr. felt pretty sure that it would be benign.... ! Lauri and Dave & pets have landed at a friends house out near Falcon Colorado. At least they have more room than...Jump to full entry
Jun 26, 2012 - No time!
Have lots of pictures to put on but no time to get them downloaded! *)* I'll be taking Jodi in at 5:15 AM tomorrow... (and I thought that time was just fiction!! ... didn't even know those hours still existed....ha) She gets out same day and then we find out if there's more to come. sigh The fire in Colorado has just now forced a mandatory evacuation of the area Lauri & Dave live in so I'm guessing they've loaded kith & kin into the pickup camper and headed out to safety! We were so hoping the fire wouldn't get into Queen's Canyon behind...Jump to full entry
Jun 24, 2012 - Time for a bit of faith here!
With one daughter scheduled for surgery and biopsy on Wednesday and the other daughter 10 miles from the new Waldo Canyon fire at Colorado Springs.... the only thing we can do is hold fast to our faith! So far so good!! Prayers appreciated! God Bless! P & EJump to full entry
Jun 19, 2012 - ???
Does anyone remember when this used to be a Journal site???? Used to have pictures of where we've been and things we were doing?? And funny little stories...etc. Hmmmm... seems like I do too. For some reason there's been such a whirlwind around here that with lack of sleep and keeping things humming like house repair ... looks great... and my cooking and cleaning and washing and ... running errands and helping JBird clean her room...(2 days so far!) .. and... sigh. ^_^ Oh... did I mention I'm on antibiotics for a silver dollar sized bug...Jump to full entry

Jun 8, 2012 - Wow!
Still no pictures.... I think I'm getting too old to put on this many miles per day and still get pictures taken! ha P has been working like mad on structural things that were started and not finished... I've been doing the spring cleaning that Jodi wouldn't have time to do in a hundred years! Working... two teenagers... master's thesis. Ouch Sure fun to be able to help a bit. Sunday is the party and we decided on a buffet... meatball w/Italian rice, cold poached salmon w/creamy lime/dijon mustard sauce, crab legs and the fixin's. Plus the...Jump to full entry
Jun 6, 2012 - Working in WI... ;>
Good to see the kids!! Lots of things to get finished on the house before the weekend... Luckily it's mostly little stuff that was almost finished already. It's fun to be here getting our muscles back in working order after all the driving! Zach & Janaya are growing so fast! Fun to watch them turning into almost adults...(don't tell them I said almost! ha). A new chapter in both their lives ... moving on to college and from middle school to high school. Funny how they can age while we stay the same! No time to take pictures right now.......Jump to full entry
Oct 18, 2011 - Ooops...
Sorry if I didn't explain about the excitement for this baby.... Jodi is not going to have a baby!! Ken's daughter, Katie & Kyle are having their first... making him a grandpa and Jodi a grandma and that leaves me being a great grandma! ^_^ However, it's starting to look like the little guy may take his time getting here and we'll just have to wait to spring to start spoiling him/her... Two more days and we'll be doing the snowbird thing again! Different route this time... stay tuned! ^_^ God Bless! P & EJump to full entry
Oct 17, 2011 - Still no baby.. lots of sunsets.. :)
We're having a great time getting to see the grandkids this much! Zach is between sports so he and/or his friends are here a lot.... Janaya (Bird) is here more now, too. Grandmas are some of the happiest people in the world! ^_^ Weather is getting cooler but it's still sunny so can't complain. P has finished the electric jobs and I have cooked the freezer full so we're just relaxing. Sister Marge won't be home the weekend we planned to go through Indy so we're looking at a straight shot down this time.. see what we come up with ?? That's...Jump to full entry
