LOTS to be thankful for!!!!

Thanksgiving should be everyday!!!

We probably would be better off spending each day being
thankful for all the blessings in our lives! I KNOW I have been
far more fortunate than I deserve and remain overwhelmed at
the wonderful people that are in my life....

Obie came home for Thanksgiving!

Linda had turkey, mashed potatoes, dressing, gravy, broccoli
casserole, cranberry sauce and the list goes on - just an
INCREDIBLE feast and an awesome afternoon! Courtney and
Doug came over to enjoy the day, pig out and watch some
football - it just doesn't get any better!

Charlie, Brook and Ava went to Louisville to spent the holiday
with the fabulous Cliftons! Brook's parents have been another
addition to the list to be thankful for!

Ty Pics!

Friday we continued the Thanksgiving treats! We went with Courtney
and Doug for a 4D ultrasound to see Ty - our grandson that will making
his appearance in late January!!! It was truly amazing as we watched
Ty go through his exercises on the monitor in front of us! Doug's
children, Riley and Gage came along and had their camera and cell
phones popping, taking pictures of their little brother to be!

My Buddy Wayne!

Linda is in Arkansas this morning to be with her family as they
prepare to bury her brother Wayne. He died Sunday morning
after complications from a heart surgery - the details are a
blur and rather insignificant, the bottom line is that this world
has lost 1 INCREDIBLE human...
I loved Wayne!
I often told people that he was my hero - that he had mastered
"happy"!!! He fiercely loved his family and anything to do with a
motor and tires! My last memories of Wayne come from a trip
where we hauled the Harley to Arkansas and Wayne was like a
kid as we unloaded the bike and prepared to ride the mountains!
I can still see him in front of us on his GoldWing - I sensed that
he was as much a part of the road as the center line - he rode
with the ease that only comes with riding a motorcycle for over
40 years.
We rode on...
He smiled...
He was happy!!!!

I'm good to go with that memory - I love you Wayne - I'll miss
you and your sister has a HUGE hole in her heart - that will be
filled with memories of your smile.....

Ride on, my friend.....

Wanda - thank you for sharing your awesome dude with us!

Marissa and Pete were married on Saurday, October 18 in
Tampa! Another incredible young couple! Once again, it
was an honor to share in this special day!

I have been "slack" on keeping up my blog and I will make
every effort to get in 3 - 4 posts a week. I've been working
too much and not just shooting for fun! BACK with the fun!
