Checking in

It's been awhile since the last blog entry. A lot has happened.

Football practice is under way. In fact, we are about to finish our first week. A wonderful group of kids. Can't wait for the season to start.

I finished hauling in crushed rock for the back yard. It took about four truck loads. But it was peaceful out in the pit. I let the dogs swim in the pit. The geese returned. In full force. There had to be close to a hundred when we went out last night.

Kristie has been watching the Olympics. It's too bad Mom isn't around anymore because I could see Kristie and Mom glued to the TV over the swimming and gymnastics (a persona favorite of Mom's).


The horror! The horror!

This evening Casey bought a cell phone. He promised to foot his portion of the bill since we added him to our plan. Another sign of the looming apocalypse.

Of course, KoKo is insanely jealous and believes she must have one.

I have four words for her --

Over my dead body.

But her mother has a way of giving in to her, so I have to stand firm.
