Happy Halloween. The rain passed through in time for the little goblins to go Trick-or-Treating. We had about 50 come to the door. Our traditional Halloween night festivities includes a classic movie, Young Frankenstein.
I’m in Irving, TX and I was pleasantly surprised to find an In-N-Out Burger here. So a Double-Double Animal Style was a must for dinner. It was delicious.
Watching Albert play baseball under a clear blue North Georgia sky.
On Sunday we had the pleasure of hosting my granddaughter Abigail at our house while her parents had a lunch date. She has been teething for the last few days and has not been in a very good mood. Of course she was a perfect angel while she was with her Nana and Pawpaw.
She is now 10 months old and has real hair. She is growing fast. Like most children her age, she loves to be held and walked around with so she can see the world from a taller perspective.
My daughter sent this picture of her eating breakfast this morning. This is her typical personality. A happy girl.
23 years ago today, God blessed us with a baby boy. We named Albert after his grandfather and great-grandfather. We knew he would have challenges and wanted him to have a strong family name.
He was born with some health problems and at 4 months old had to have open heart surgery. After the one surgery, he was a healthy and happy baby boy.
He has always been a fun and happy child. We have had many adventures together and I hope we will have many, many more. Happy Birthday to my baby boy.
I has been a stress filled week, so for lunch today, Rinktum Ditty. Strange name. My Mother made this when I was growing up. I’ve never asked my sisters if they remember it, but I still enjoy it. It is a very simple recipe. Canned tomato soup with cheddar cheese melted in the soup. Served over saltine crackers. Not something I eat all the time, but I enjoy it now and then. Definitely Good Eats!
Albert starts a new job today at Brew-able. It’s a coffee shop that supports special needs adults with job training. He only works a few hours a day, but it get’s him out, he get to interact with other, and learn new skills. It’s a Godsend for us.
Each year my wife and son volunteer at a golf tournament supporting the North Metro Miracle League . They have a great time. Below is a picture of Albert and another NMML athlete, Jackson. Jackson’s dad had participated in the golf tournament and met Albert before Jackson was born.
Cinco de Mayo lunch at La Parrilla on Hwy 9. Any excuse to party.
I’m saddened to hear about the fire at Notre Dame Cathedral. My sincere condolensces to all Parisians. It is hard to fathom the history and beauty that was lost. I’m so grateful that I was able to visit it in 2017 with my family. I’ll cherish the memories.
