Love that B'dawg

One more lake picture. KT said I could B. You were a good sport to let us sling you around behind the boat. We love you!

No time to write or even read blogs this week. Next week isn't looking good either. I am presenting at our new teacher orientation, preparing for a federal audit and managing a gazillion accounts at work this week. At least it won't be boring.

We're going to hear Jesse play tonight or babysit if Leaa wants to go but either way it should be fun.

So advanced

There's just something about the jet ski that makes us all want to go fast. There's something about it that makes some people want to do crazy 360's too. Cherie didn't have the later affliction but the speed thing kicked in.

85 and still up for a boat ride

What was everyone's favorite thing to do at the lake?

Hold Livi of course!

Thanks Aunt Nicole for taking such good pictures of me!

Cross Florida Barge Canal

Carl and I have lived in this area for thirty years and had never been to the Rodman Reservoir until today. It was terrible. The locks reminded me of a prison. The lake, filled with logs and weeds, looked desolate. We saw several gators and a few birds but no other wildlife. What a man made mess. It made me want to cry. I’ve posted a link to a page with some history of the Cross Florida Barge Canal if you are interested. Now the question should be how do we fix it? Can the Ocklawaha even be restored? The trip has inspired me to learn more.

Such sweet chil'ren! What a joy. A good time was had by all... except maybe the little dog that Nollie tried to eat.

Hi Aunt Katie and Uncle B'dawg. I like this chair but everybody laughs and stares when I sit in it so I'm not sure what the deal is - but as you can probably tell from the expression on my face I am about ready to set them straight.

here's to ya, world.
