Dec. 17, 2014 -- 'Twas the night before...

Well, not quite the night before. But tonight... a quarter inch of really wet slushy slippery sleet, only 32 degrees, but slickery.

Elf emerges from desk drawer portal, was lost, now found. Communications established. What I want for Christmas, ...

Love this Christmas present!

November 23, 2014 -- Add 700 to that 335

Happy Birthday, J. T. G. !
Happy birthday, Jason! Our Missouri "other kid", spent lots of time sleeping in the spare bedroom... (under the kitchen table, in the front room - dining room - entertainment room). He trained with the master, learned to help with the "chores". Now he lives out west where there is no water so ya have to make your own beverages, and he flies "alternative" aircraft without leaving the ground. Hey, kid... have a good birthday, and train the newby in the old ways! Well, let Shelby grow up a little bit first!
("Footnote" ... I forgot, Fonda... did he wash his feet first?)

Oct. 4, 2014 -- Travelers on the Katy Trail

G & D getting ready to roll out on the Katy Trail, from Clinton to St. Louis, Missouri. Son C just popped in for the photo, and down the trail, look closely, another traveler stands on alert.
This will be a 6 day trip. Meanwhile, freshman C is getting ready for his debut at the JC High School Homecoming Prom tonight. Dining out, too!
Bobblehead. So which one is the wildlife...



 So tonight, as far as Sedalia. Tomorrow night, Boonville. Then Jefferson City and a night at home.

September 5, 2014 -- Grapeography - A year in the life of a vineyard

Premier of Joyce McMurtrey's photo show at the Park Central Library, right on the square in downtown Springfield.
Great photos, big crowd, nice speech. Show runs all through September.
Yes, Sharon, that's your brother Sonny having tea with Amelia!

Happy accident... caught the little boy's reflection!

Joyce weaves a wonderful tale about the year in the life of the vineyard.
