The days continue to go by. First I want to thank every one for their thoughts, hugs and prayers. I do want to talk a little about Dennis. His birthday is in 6 days, he would have been 63. For the past year and a half his health has been poor and was continuing to worsen. He had heart and lung problems and was just diagnosed with liver problems. So the call we received was not unexpected but - I don't know how to put it - kind of a relief. There was no - you'll feel better or having good days any more. He succumbed to a heart attack. We of course are devastated to lose another son. But we did not wish for him to continue to suffer. This is his senior year picture. He had gone to school that day in "farmer" overalls. Suddenly he came flying through the front door - "It's picture day. I have to change my clothes." This is the result. It doesn't seem that long ago.A picture he had taken for me to add to my old west family collection.
We will always love and miss him.

Mother Nature helps to heal sad hearts.
On to other things. I think I mentioned we both had appointments with the cardiologist - well that was yesterday. We both got clean bills of health. Every things is good - come back in a year. Sigh of relief. So now we are starting to plan a summer vacation - going to try to find some place cooler. By the end of this week the temperatures will be back up to 115 or higher. Even "dry heat" is hot at that high.
These were taken with my new camera. Actually it is the exact same camera that I've been using for the last several years. Guess I just took too many pictures with the old one. It got to the point it wasn't usable any more. Every time I turned it on it shut its self off again. I like the features it had so replaced it with the same one. So everyone will have to continue to suffer with my lack of control with pictures.
