Great Grand Son

Hello everyone:
‘Breaking News’
Jo and I have a brand new, “Great Grand Son” ! Caden Wayne Miller was born at 12:59 PM Thursday, May 29th, 2008. He was 21 inches long, and a whopping 9 lbs, 4 oz! Mom and baby are doing great. sister Audrey is proud of him too. She is 3.

On a different note; I got an e-mail from a friend with an inspiring message, I don’t know if it’s true or not, but I really liked it and I think you will too .

A four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife.
Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.
When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor,
the little boy said,
'Nothing, I just helped him cry'
Have a great day………. JD

Feast Of The Flowering Moon

Hello everyone, Yes, it’s me……

I hadn’t realized it’s been so long since my last post. We have been having some pretty good weather here lately and I’ve been taking advantage of it in the yard. Yeah, yeah, I hear you, that’s an excuse, you say, well you’re right I guess. I have to admit, I do get a little lazy at times. Anyway, don’t give up on me; I really do enjoy hearing from you.

I slept late this morning and when I got in here she was working on the PC. She was posting the following clip for me, she’s a lot more up-to-date on the workings of this thing, thank goodness! Anyway, I took the pictures in the clip while she was in the Dr’s office waiting for her appointment. We live almost 40 miles from the Dr’s office so we try to schedule our appointments on the same day’s and as close to the same time as possible for economic reasons, the fuel, you understand. Well this particular day the “Feast Of The Flowering Moon” festival was just getting under way and all the venders were getting set up in the streets. The city had blocked of several streets for this festival. So after our appointments, Jo and I went for a walk through the streets and down into the park area and snapped more pictures. The park is large and these pictures do not do it justice, It’s a beautiful place to visit, many people that work close to the park go there to eat their lunches. The name of this park is, “Yoctangee Park”, and it’s located in downtown Chillicothe Ohio.
I really don’t know when or why the festival got started but it's held every Memorial day weekend. And as I understand, it was started when the Native Americans in the area would gather and have their Pow Wow’s and socialize with each other, and get up-to-date on all the happenings in the area. The festival used to be held inside the park, but now it has gotten so commercialized that it has expanded to several streets.
When I came in and caught Jo posting the clip on my blog, I told her that I would have to explain it now, know what she said? “That’s the idea”, she said! Kinda sneaky huh….*S*
It’s good to be back…… I'll try not to be such a stranger in the future! I hope you enjoy the clip, AND, Have a great day

Are things as they seem...?

I know that you’ve all heard the old saying, “Things are Not always they seem,” …. Well,… sometimes they ARE…!!

Two men dressed in pilots' uniforms walk up the aisle of the aircraft. Both are wearing dark glasses, one is using a guide dog,and the other is tapping his way along the aisle with a cane.
Nervous laughter spreads through the cabin, but the men enter the cockpit the door closes, and the engines start up.
The passengers begin glancing nervously around, searching for some kind of a sign that this is just a little practical joke.
None is forthcoming.
The plane moves faster and faster down the runway, and the people sitting in the window seats realize they're headed straight for the water at the edge of the airport property. Just as it begins to look as though the plane will plow straight into the water, panicked screams fill the cabin.
At that moment, the plane lifts smoothly into the air.
The passengers relax and laugh a little sheepishly, and soon all retreat into their magazines and books, secure in the knowledge that the plane is in good hands. Meanwhile, in the cockpit, one of the blind pilots turns to the other and says, 'You know, Bob, one of these days, they're gonna scream too late and we're all gonna die' !!
Just thought you could use a chuckle !
