Grand Canyon Sunrise

I am awed at the splendor created by nature.  It has been nearly 20 years since my bride and I visited but a portion of the canyon, periodically, I like to visit it in my dreams. Sadly, my knees and joints wouldn’t take a hike down into the canyon.  But I would sure like to visit the rim again.

Here is a sunrise perspective from Yavapai Point in Grand Canyon National Park.

Cheers and enjoy.  Carl

and now a call from the prize patrol

We have been in the city since early this morning for my doctor appointment. David spent some time with his grandfather. He has been incredibly patient this morning. While I was at grandpa’s house grandpa got a phone call from someone who wanted to know if they could deliver his prize today. The prize? 4.5… Continue Reading

Sweet, my bride and I get to have a couple of hours to ourselves tomorrow.  🙂  Thanks so much Auntie! We are going into the city, doing a little shopping, lunch buy some car parts for my truck, and then come home.  Kind of a late valentines treeat for ourselves. Having three boys on the… Continue Reading

Rockin’ round the library

Well today mom and I took David to the library and then the grocery store.  The library was uneventful, which is always a joy, other than the 20 dollars in fines that the kids wracked up, everything was good. At least we know they are reading… Being a small town of less than 1800 people,… Continue Reading

And we have a successful outing!

Our outing to the Malte Shoppe was a huge success. On the way home we stopped at the drug store and the hardware store.  We ended up walking because dad forgot to put gas in his truck.  But since it is only four blocks and not really all that cold at 34 degrees, we walked. … Continue Reading

alls quiet on the western front

Things are good today. I am exhausted for some reason probably related to my Lupus and fibro.  But otherwise things are good.  David is behaving himself quite nicely, and playing one of his spelling games.  I challenge him to create 4 letter words instead of three letter words.  So far he is exceeding my expectations.… Continue Reading

Day 4 ~ a recap

So, it seems that our youngest son has issues with needing attention when any of his other siblings are home.  It doesn’t matter to him if he is negative or positive in how he gets the attention.  He will push any button he can to get attention. So we spent quite a bit of time… Continue Reading

Evening Day 3

Well it appears that we have two levels of behaviour.  That which he exhibits during the day when it is one on one, and that which is displayed in the evenings when everyone is home.  Tonight he was all about the word no. Everything we said, “no” was the response, didn’t matter if we were… Continue Reading

Day 3 ~ Under the Weather

He must not be feeling good today.  Here it is after 10am and he is still wanting to sleep.  He is fighting a sinus infection, but that has been going on for a couple of days.  Blood draw at 11:45 again.  Then we are going on an outing to the hardware store to price out … Continue Reading

Day 1 – 5am wakeup

Good morning friends. Our son is excited about something, he has been up since 5am. Doing his level-headed best to wake up the rest of the house.  It is now 3 hours later and he is trying to push buttons as fast as he can.  Just trying to remain firm, and keep my head about… Continue Reading
