A gift from Chris

A customer of mine Chris was nice enough to reward me and my family with dinner at Red Lobster for a job well done.

Thanks Chris it was greatly appreciated.

Waiting to be served

Not much time is spent on death row for these fellows

Trying to pick from many dishes

No matter how it's viewed, it's still time and it waits for no one.

Hour glass charm

12 hour and 24 hour clock in one

The dream

The white picket fence
Does the "white picket fence" ever become reality?

I got the kids hooked on Bugs Bunny

Bugs turned 71 this week

Can life really be this charming?

Sigurd F. Olson Quote

Joys come from simple and natural things: mist over meadows, sunlight on leaves,
the path of the moon over water.
Even rain and wind and stormy clouds
bring joy.

Flower girl Elise

This past Sunday Elise had the honor of being asked to participate in the sermon. The subject of the sermon was the Bride of Christ and Elise was the flower girl in the opening ceremony.

Silas wore his suit, boy, they’re adorable!

Brother and sister best of friends


This is why boys don't make good flower girls

Time to go to lunch

Movie night at Young Circle (Downtown Hollywood)

Families enjoying the time before the movie starts

Emerson taking in the sights

Some happy, some sad

"Over the Hedge" begins

The funny thing about the movie was that in the movie a bear gives a raccoon an ultimatum to get something done by the next full moon or else. As the movie came to a close the full moon peaked up above the movie screen as the bear announced that the raccoon’s time was up.

How do things like that happen?

It's all in your perspective

Think about it

The window of the soul with the tree of life

Pool party at Janice's

Cold and pruny
