I sometimes have tea instead of soft drinks.

Several places use a special dispenser which features Gold Peak Tea.

It makes me laugh.

Every time I see the dispenser, just for a fraction of a second, I think
it says:


 I guess…. if you drink enough of it.

One of greatest joys in my life is experiencing happiness through
the eyes of my children.

I found out, one of greatest pains is experiencing the sadness they feel.

A travelling production of Wizard of Oz had open auditions for 60 parts.
These parts were for children of various ages.

Little Lady wanted to be in the musical so bad….  but she did not get a part.

She cried so hard, it just ripped my heart out.  (Mom’s too…)

The play was supposed to be this weekend.  We are going to try to
distract her all weekend and cheeer her up.

She was just crushed….

Little Lady found a little rock over-hang.


We found a lean-to someone built.  Little Lady wanted to explore it.


This was one of the cool family cabins you can rent in Brown County.


This is the north tower look-out, just off trail 2.

Little Lady did well, but she is still getting acclimated to the bigger
field and the tougher competition.


Opposing player tries… tries that is, to take it away from Little Lady.


Little Lady is writing up the next play.

Actually, LL drew a picture of her friend, seen here.

Mom’s night out….

 So Aunt J and I took the kids to Rustic Driving Range and Miniature Golf!
It was Little Lady’s first time!


Little Lady got up this big hill in one hit!  (not easy, even for an adult)


The kids actually beat us on this hole!

(Little Lady is practicing her sassy pose)


Little Man shot a hole-in-one on the last hole!

My dentist took this x-ray.  There is alot of history in this picture.

1. these are my titanium plates from my bicycle accident where I broke
my cheek bone in three places.

 2. (both sides) these are the metal bolts that held my jaw in place after
my jaw surgery in high school.  I had a huge under-bite, they took out a piece
of my jaw and bolted it back together.

3. a piece of the diamond tipped drill bit that broke off when trying to
cut into my jaw.  The doctors looked for 30 minutes and could not find it,
so they left it.

4. a permanent retainer left after my braces

Obi-wan about Darth Vader:
“…he is more machine than man now…”


Little Lady made this object d’art.

It is a person.

Girl Scout meeting!

Mom planned a great meeting.  All of the girls made
a boat, then they floated them down the creek.

Little Lady was one of the first girls in the creek.


Mom, as always, is being the perfect Troop leader.
(notice all of the parents on the shore)


Just about all of the girls got into the creek.  We even saw Indiana
