I see no snow on the road...if it's not in a pic, it didn't happen.

Thanks all for the birthday wishes... had to dig out a calculator to figure out I'm now 57.
Phone rang a bit ago... it was the Breast Cancer society... Bob looked at the caller ID and yelled "don't answer it!" I then looked to see who was calling, and yelled back to him, "Don't want any...ain't gonna answer that call again..." Then he said... "so your 10 year anniversary is coming up...eh?" I responded," yup, and If I am lucky I'll get a 11th, 12th, and more!"

Life is good!

Dave come on by we'll put you in a big field with little chance of collateral damage!

Barb what your missing in my picture is that is my diet plan, my nerve medicine, my depression control and body and brain exercise all wrapped up in the bay in my shop. I really enjoy messing with these things and doing it at my own pace!

Marty happy birthday again but add congrats on the 10 yr anniversary! Woot woot!

So you do have a deer hanging. That new deer stand came in handy! It might be a little tough to eat though, ya think?

Great pics there! It's beautiful! We always enjoy exploring through your pictures and making note of places that would be cool to see.

That is so true, Barb. Here is a story you don't know yet about Brody. About a week after he was born, his mother took off. She and my nephew we're not married, although my nephew had asked her many times. She would say yes, but then would always give an excuse to put it off. Nephew finally found out after she left him and Brody that she was not divorced from hubby #1, with whom she had a 2 yr old daughter (who my nephew was helping to raise) and who she has now abandoned (the girl's birth father has full custody now, according to what my nephew has learned - they've talked).

My nephew bucked up and took care of his infant son, refusing help most of the time. He told all of us in the family that he was responsible for bringing Brody into the world and he was going to step up to the plate and be the best daddy he could be. Well, he did an amazing job. But by the time Brody turned 2, his dad was emotionally and physically exhausted.

Raising a baby alone is not easy, and for a young man on his own there are many challenges, (as for a woman). So he began praying for help. And the Universe sent him and Brody a gift from heaven named Meagan. She and my nephew had known each other years earlier, and found each other again. They married when Brody was about 26 months old and Meagan has been Brody's true mommy ever since. They have a bond that is nothing short of amazing. She teaches Brody constantly. Everything is a learning opportunity. She has great wisdom in raising him. And there is the love ... She has deep, unending love for her son. She is the most dedicated mother I've ever known.

One day Brody will really understand what a gift his mommy is to him and what an amazing gift he is to her. When she was 19, she had to have a hysterectomy. Brody is the greatest gift of her life. When Brody was 7 days old, his birth mother abandoned him. Meagan is the greatest gift of Brody's young life. His birth mother gave up all rights to him. Idiot. (I can think of many words ....) And even though my nephew had offered birth mother's parents to have a relationship with Brody, they declined several times. So, since they turned down every opportunity to see Brody, he has stopped communicating with them. Meagan's parents have stepped into the grandparent role like champions. They could not love Brody more. And of course he has my sister and her husband. Brody adores all his grandparents.

Here is possibly the most amazing thing of all: Meagan found Brody's birth mother on social media and sent her a private message. In the message Meagan thanked Brody's birth mother for carrying him and giving birth to him. Meagan told her that the only way she could have children is if someone else gave birth and she could adopt. She expressed the most sincere gratitude and said "My uterus was broken, so God found a way to loan me one so I could have a son. Thank you for being God's gift to me."

And now you know the rest of the story.

Oh my, Mel! What an amazing story! Three people who needed and found each other, a wonderful ending (and beginning). Like the butterfly effect, the consequences are already rippling out.

Garden trumps camping...besides that, supposed to rain all day Saturday.

You all better?

Never mind, no way Sue would laugh in a situation like this!

Actually it was someone we know, and she did have a really good laugh, after the initial "What happened you!" 'Twarn't me!! Seems to me she said it happened in a train station -- how much more public could it be?!!

A birthday? Another birthday? Hooray for Marty, and congratulations! Happy Birthday!

And, while I think of it, I missed Sandee's birthday a while back, even after Don mentioned it. So, a belated Happy Birthday to Sandee!
