Welcome to September Edition of the News
September was a busy month for the family. Cody passed the
AKC Canine Good Citizen test on September 8th, and on the 10th we celebrated
Cody's first birthday!.
Dad and Delia drove in from California and arrived from their two day trek on the 16th. This
was their first opportunity to meet Cody, and they both became attached to our four legged critter!
Cody especially enjoyed the morning walks with Dad during their stay!
This was also Delia's first introduction to our daughter Melissa and son-in-law Karl.
Oh, I just want to mention to Dad and Delia that the the young newly weds enjoyed the spin around the
block in the Kompressor.
Their stay was only for a few days, as they continued on to
Lyons on Tuesday.
The following Friday September 23rd, Pam and I met up with Dad and Delia visiting the Walker clan.
The Lyons Fair in the Square was in full swing Saturday morning as grandma introduced her grandson to everyone
as we walked arm-in-arm checking out the booths with their unique arts and crafts, looking for that special
pecan pie! This also gave us the opportunity to spread the word, that Dad would be playing his trumpet during
services in grandma's Presbyterian church the next day!
Saturday afternoon, I found myself as Aunt Karran's PC support
technician, getting her familiar with the broadband internet connection
experience. This was a somewhat slow and painful process, but
alas was only short lived, as it met it's demise a week later
and would've been sooner if Billytwostep was around?
The autumn weather was nice late saturday afternoon as grandma
watered the plants, as Dad entertained everyone in the backyard
during one of his practice sessions. Dad's trumpet solo Sunday
morning was first rate, which grandma's church family all enjoyed.
Monday morning we said goodbye to our family, and headed west on that long drive back to Colorado.
The short time we did spend in my childhood town of
is always special. Pam and I want to also extend a warm thank-you to Reatha and Larry for their bed -n
(without the breakfast) hospitality, and look forward to obtrude again in the near future!
Ok, your scanning down this webpage wondering about the big easel
Van Gogh's painting. This was discovered in part by this wandering
I-70 westward bound traveler looking for a lunch time establishment
in the town of Goodland Kansas. Yes, it was quite impressive and
maybe Shannon will reach such heights in his artist career. Just
click on the picture to learn more about this impressive painting
how it came about it's adopted home in this western Kansas town!
I've put it off to long, it's time that I built my own PC! Check the link on the left as I'll document
this grand endeavor!
