happy father's day?

Thanks to the amazingly mild and wet spring around here, the lilacs lasted almost an entire month. There has also been a bumper crop of cotton in these parts. By these parts I mean my yard. And it's my fault, because it's MY tree that's the main offender! It looks like it's a blizzard every time I glance outside the window. There's more white out there than at Christmas. My kids have been making snowballs out of the stuff. Some genius kids around the corner decided to test the flamability of cotton. Answer: yes it is! And they got to meet the folks on fire engine #4 up close and personal as an added bonus.

Here's another reason it looks like Christmas around here:




Happy Father's Day, Happy Birthday, Merry Christmas, and expect to see us in your neck of the woods sometime soon!

Wow! Mom mentioned that you guys got a house on wheels, but I was thinking it would have been a bit smaller. I assume the kids are head over heels about it.

Wow!! Congratulations, Roger, on your new toy. Now that you're mobile we're hoping to get together more often. There's a great spot out front or we could meet in the middle and go camping/fishing - always a good time with you! Are you bringing it down to New Mexico? We'll get the chili count up and see if the parade has changed in the past 20 years! It will be a great time!
