Back from the tour.


This is what I've been up to instead of blogging. When I got back in town from touring with the Clydesdales{ I mean the Chippendales} I decided to change things up some. Instead of blogging I've been playing hearts on the computer. As you can see from my games played count I've been playing quite a bit. I only win about 1 out of every 3. I guess that ain't to bad considering I'm playing against the computer.

I've been checking in with your blogs from time to time but just haven't felt like posting. I went to the Pysch Dr. today with Cindy. The long and short of it is that he is supporting the idea of me going on Disability what with the Physical stuff and the Mental stuff added in. Momma and I have been working on the paper work. My back is getting worse and my left knee clicks a lot when I walk.

I'm just trying to wrap my mind around this as I'm used to working every day. Although you wouldn't know it by the last 2 plus years.

The next big thing coming up for Cindy and I will be Cindy's family reunion down at Allegany State Park in South west New York. We used to camp in a pop us camper. We gave that to Jeff and Amanda last year as Cindy and I were'nt getting much use out of it. This year we are renting a cabin at the park for Thurs thru Sat. It's about a mile from where everyone camps but maybe that's a good thing.

I'll leave it here. I'll try to post more often. No promised though. I hope all is well with everyone.

Let the good times roll

100_3007_edited 100_3012 Can you believe he's only 9 months old? Look how much he's getting around already. The kids were over Sunday for Dinner and these are just a couple of the action photo's of Brandon. He crawls  around pretty good and can stand up on his own when he pulls on something. He and Indy get along very well. Here they are kissing.

I figured I better get that picture of me in my last post off the front page.It was one of my busiest post for commenting though. Lol!!

Things are going pretty good. Momma and I have been busy around here the last few weekends. Cindy and I trimmed the bushes on the property line. Cindy did the trimming and I mowed up and mulched the leftovers. We have the place looking pretty good right now if I don't say so my self. It's frustrating how limited I am. I'm able to do some work though, I just have to take breaks every 5 or 10 minutes or so. My back is really pinching a lot after 5 mins. {Insert violin music here}


We had the drive way done Thursday. This is a picture of it done just as they were finishing up and getting ready to leave with the equipment. We we're first able to park on it late Saturday night. It makes a real big difference. It really draws the property out.


In the second picture here you can see the bushes on the right. This is before we trimmed them.

Maybe a better picture of the bushes is in this third picture. Notice that pile of dirt. Momma and I had to spread that along the side of the driveway after they we're done. That was really tough work. Some major pain but we're both pretty strong willed so we "got er done".


And I'll show you the final picture of the driveway. Can you tell we like it yet? This was taken at night so we could show the driveway lights it's kind of a neat picture. It's the finished product and was well worth all the work and money we put into it.


See after all those pictures don't you wish I'd stayed out on tour with the Chippendales? Oh wait I do have to show you one more picture. I would put some of the garden up but I want to save some pictures for Cindy to use on here blog. This last picture is one I had to show you of the "Lime Green Drama Queen". Apparently she has developed a new method of catching a Softball when some one throws it to you. I recommend using a glove but...


A lot has happened lately. I'm still in a funk of sorts but I'll try to post more than I have been. Thanks for sticking with me guys. More later.
