Trip to Pueblo Colorado to take Ricky the Boat

July 4th weekend, Conald, me, Kaley & Ryan drove to Pueblo, Colorado. We were shooting for Denver because that would be a halfway point for Ricky to meet us. Ricky lives in Moses Lake, Washington. I inherited my dad's boat in January 2002 and have only used it maybe 4 times. Ricky has always wanted the boat but he lived so far away. We ended up staying at a hotel the first night without seeing Ricky. It was 1100 miles one way for us and for Ricky it was about 1400 miles. We made the swap in Pueblo and ate at the Cracker Barrel. We headed home after dinner but stopped at a hotel at about 8pm. Pizza and beer in the hotel room. What can I say, I'm easy to please. It was an incerdibly long drive but it was a huge weight off me because I wanted Ricky to have the boat and I wanted it out of my garage!

If you look closely at the picture of the valley you can see a young Grizzly Bear. What a treat to see a bear in the wild and be a very safe distance away frim him...

Hopefully when we get the adoption final we will be traveling to Tennessee. See ya!

Corey's New Job

Well, my middle son Corey started his new job with Silver Eagle Distributors this past Monday. He is so excited about it and the fact that they offer benefits after 3 months. Here is pic of him in his UNIFORM! WooHoo way to go Corey!

Conald's Bo-Bo

As we were getting ready to take My dad's Boat to Ricky Joe in Denver, Colorado, Conald tripped over the tongue of the boat trailer. It caught the back of his right leg and I thought it was broken. Since Conald is so manly, he did not hardly even make a sound. The next day the entire upper portion of his leg was black. In addition, there is a huge gash. This pic was taken about 3 days later. Owweeee!
