Here's a little taste of what you're missing, my friend.

This one I took in Colorado, not far from the cabin my grandfather built:


Okay...I'll stop dreaming now...back to my desk and to work. But you should head west sometime; it is beautiful!

Christmas Countdown - 2013

Good morning everyone! Thank you all for the laughs this morning. Just checking in before heading to bed.

I was to stay and work 12 hours today, but they decided they needed me more tonight and are probably going to have me come in at 7.

EA started a new classroom today. She started Pre-K. My kids are growing up too fast.

Well, I am off to get some sleep. Talk to you guys later on. Hope you all have a great day. God Bless and keep smiling!

P.S. Who am I to blame? Oh yes...Santa and Rudolph...it's all their fault! Just remember that...all of you!

Good Morning MMC!!!! It's going to be another hot day here with a high in the upper 80's and high humidty. I can't wait until the real cold front arrives tomorrow!! I actually slept last night so maybe I can get some stuff done today instead of sitting around in groggy haze. My buddy started a new job yesterday working 8 to 5 so I won't be hearing from him as much anymore. That will free up some more time for me. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Morning everyone hope all is well in everyone's households. Last night was pretty long night poor little girl Harper was sick all night so she just tossed and turned and coughed all night long. So every time she coughed i woke up and checked on her and would try setting her up a little higher on the pillow so it would help a little. Other than that it was a pretty good evening, saw lots of cool Halloween stuff last night,

That is beautiful, Ryan! I have looked into going there before but haven't yet. Need to add that to the list of things to do!

Have you been to Turner Falls in Davis, Oklahoma? I have been going there for nearly 30 years. Wayne and I spent our honeymoon in a cabin there. They use to decorate the park during Christmas, play Christmas music throughout the park and we use to get a cabin overlooking it all. They quit doing that many years ago and I sure miss it!!! It's only about 2 and half hours from us.
