Tragedy in Virginia

Tragedy in Virginia

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the students, faculty, and their families of Virginia Tech. I can only imagine the things they must be going through and how tough it will be for them over the next few weeks.

Who is that????

Who is that????

Here’s a blast from the past! Taken in the ’70’s (probably 1976), this is my mom, our dog Duffer, and Janet. Think the ladies have changed at all since then? I’ll be scanning some more of some photos I found recently over the coming days and will likely embarrass many people, myself included. Keep your heads down!

I added a blog for Alyssa the other day, which brings the total number of blogs on this site to 2. She has not added anything to it so far but will probably be quite prolific in the long run. You can get to it via the link on the left. I also added a few photos to the gallery. Look under May 31 and June 1 to see our roses and our new kitchen faucet. It took 4.5 hours…

What the…?

What the…?

It didn’t show this message to me (I still don’t know why) so I had no idea it was happening or for how long. This has been resolved so EVERYONE should be able to get in now.
