Thinking About

Washing dishes and listening to the CD by Sugarland I got to thinking about events and places that stand out in my memory. Such as.

Sun rise over Little America, WY after sleeping in the car on the way to Denver, CO. To meet JP and the girls returning from Spain.

Harvest moon rise in Idaho.

Asking JP's Mom and Dad for her hand in marriage.

Birth of my children. Birth of my Grandson. Holding my grandson.

Getting the news that my Father had passed away.

Fried catfish from Grandma Wann's kitchen in Summerfield, OK.

Grandma Moore's biscuit's. Dad Moore's gentle way.

The Grand Canyon. Hoover Dam. The Snake River. Columbia River Gorge.

Bonneville Salt Flats. Canyon Lands. The Arches, Moab, UT. Thunder storm in Limon, CO.

Trip to Canada with my daughters. Yellowstone Park. Luxury cabins at Lake Yellowstone.

Grizzly bear (wild) at Yellowstone not 20 yards away. Feeling when I first looked at my SSR.

First time I ate pancakes. Turning the crank on the ice cream maker with L sitting on it to hold it still.

Walking S down the aisle at her wedding. S's graduation from High School. Her graduation from college.

Taking L to college and saying goodbye in the parking lot. L's graduation. JP's graduation from college.

Flying to SLC to meet S driving from ID to watch a Jazz playoff game with the Denver Nuggets.

Life is good.

Family and Friends


A few days ago I celebrated my birthday. It was a very mellow day. The cards, calls and e-mails from family were much appreciated. Having Jo's kindergarten class sing happy birthday over the phone was very nice. The lovely flowers from Mia brought a smile. Jo and I had a nice dinner at El Torito Grill. I was even happy to have some of the servers sing happy birthday to me. A victory by the Jazz over the Lakers would have been the icing on the cake. Didn't happen. Maybe tonight in SLC. S, MT, and T enjoy the game at Energy Solutions Arena. Wish I was there with you.

Is this a new beginning? Starting my 69th year of life here on this planet. Looking back that is a long time. The past has been great, but I am looking forward to the future. There are many things I want see and do.

Thank you all for making my B-Day so pleasant.

Take care, love to all.
