Trampled!

Wendy came home from the barn this afternoon with the story of a scary close call in the pasture. First I should say that she’s OK.
Let me repeat that: she’s OK.
Bryn was having trouble catching Laredo for her riding lesson, so Wendy gathered up a handful of horse treats and went to help catch [...]

Mother’s day at Pine Gulch

Sunday, May 13th, 2007

Last weekend Wendy put her foot down and said “I want a big-screen TV for Mother’s Day!” (And I thought I was going to have to wait until Father’s Day.) She sent me out Saturday morning with orders not to come back without one. A trip to Fry’s later, and we have this nice Toshiba [...]

Happy Mother’s Day

Sunday, May 13th, 2007

I started off this post with videos of Momma. I later decided I’d rather remember her with just this one photo. It’s my favorite photo of her because it shows her laughing. Laughter is something everyone seems to remember about her. Years ago, Imogene Adams wrote us a nice letter about Mother and said
Your mother’s [...]

I drove Dad and Chris to the airport this afternoon for their flight back home. They flew to Birmingham by way of Nashville, where they had to change planes. Then they drove back to Brindlee Mountain. Dad phoned about an hour ago to say that they had arrived safely and had enjoyed their visit. I [...]

Dad and Chris in the air

Friday, December 29th, 2006

They’ve crossed the Mississippi River into Louisiana:

Looks like they’re flying into bad weather. We’re going to keep an eye on their flight status before we leave for the airport to pick them up.
Update, 6:44 PM: They’re flying around the weather:

The web site estimates that they’ll arrive 10 minutes early. We will have to leave for [...]

I received several books for Christmas this year, including You Better Be Right, My 25 Years as an SEC Football Official by Dick Burleson. I’ve read a few chapters already and find it to be a humorous and informative book about SEC football and officiating. What makes it worth noting here, though, is the mention [...]
