Summer Pickin'

Time to pick some blackberries - they are everywhere!

Even with little rain, they are many that are very plump.

I may need to call in friends and family to help me pick!

Happy Father's Day

Latest picture of my dad (left) and his remaining brothers. 
My dad is 82 years old and just in the last couple of years having some health issues. He served in the Korean War prior to my birth and then settled close to his home town and retired as a Rural Route Carrier for the Post Office.  He is the oldest son and second born, but oldest living.  He and his brothers have some crazy stories they tell about growing up!  My dad married young (but probably not too young for the times) and he and my mom have been married 62 years.  Family is important and I am glad to have a loving, caring family for so many years and hopefully many more to come.

80th Birthday

We recently celebrated my mother's 80th birthday.  My mom's in good health and looking great for her age!  Hopefully this will be hereditary!

It has been awhile since I have blogged because we have been on vacation, went to a family reunion and celebrated my mother's 80th birthday.  In other words, very busy!  We traveled to Door County, Wisconsin and camped in that area for a week.  We enjoyed our first visit to that area -- golfing, antiquing, hiking, lighthouse viewing, reading, etc.  It was fairly cool all week but enjoyable.  Here are a few pictures.
Lilacs were in bloom.  Really smelled good.

Coast Guard wouldn't allow me to get any closer!
