Well I must of been blind?

Well I must of been blind, but now I see! I had lost my glasses over a year ago walking my brothers dog. And had been using the ol $10 reading glasses you buy at the drug store. Do you know what you get when you buy $10 reading glasses? You get $3 reading glasses! I guess my eye's had gotten a little worse over the last three years, I went from a 1.25 to a 1.50 But I do see up close so much better.

Yep it was a PARTY at Ken's tonight!!!!!

The day has finally come! And ken partied like there was now tomorrow. (but there better be I have one more steak left). Anyway you are wondering why I would be partying? Well just hold on a second and I will inform you.

On 6-2-08 I called and made my first of many dentist appointments. And for nine months, one surgery and many,many sores, I went to the dentist and followed their instructions to the letter. And here it is 2-24-09 and I had my last adjustment. I told them what I was having for dinner and they said that normally someone at my stage would not be eating that so soon if ever, but that I had been above the curve all along. So I am now DONE with the dentist visits, for about a year which is normal.... What was I having for dinner you ask? here is what was on the table. 1 LARGE "T" bones steak cooked medium well (they are a little harder to chew lol) A good sized baked potato, green beans and a salad. I cooked and prepared the whole thing. IT WAS THE BEST DAMN STEAK I HAVE EVER EATON!!

Now for the story behind the story.

I had bought 2 "T" bones before I went in for surgery and was going to eat them tonight but when I thawed them out they were no good been in the freezer to long I guess. I was so pissed, But I was determined to have my "T" bones I have been through a lot to get to this point. So I went to the store and bought 3 just because! Now you know what I will be eating tomorrow night also!

And to the people that made this all possible and to my family for all there support , I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Its done, well almost

This is what the fence looked like before I got started. Nice huh? My nephew has been a very busy man, and needed to get this fixed. So Uncle ken to the rescue! And now the fence looks like the photos below.

I think this looks a little better than the old one what do you think. The people next door REALLY like it!

The deck is done

My nephew now has a 42 foot by 10 foot deck out back. It took 3 days (2 of which my brother was there to help) Tomorrow a hot tub should show up, but I will be working on the fence. I got most of the holes dug today, and will set the post tomorrow. I think he is happy with it all so far we will see what he thinks when the fence is done.

Sunday, February 15, 2009


Six years, that's how long I have lived here in Bend. And it is also how long I have been trying to get a picture of a Elk! Well my nephew called me today and asked if I would like to gets some pictures of a four point Bull Elk....... I bet you can't guess what I said. So here are a few of the shots I took. I also put the ones my nephew took in to my computer and will be posting some of them, and the rest of the ones I took. This Elk let me get so close I had to pull the zoom in to fit his head in the frame.

Tomorrow is the big day!

Well tomorrow is the day I have my last dentist visit, I have been going to the dentist almost twice a month for 7 months now. I will be with out my dentures all day but when I get them back that afternoon I will be DONE.

Don't get me wrong my dentist and his staff are top notch, but I will be glad its over, and glad the monkey mouth feeling these dentures give me will be gone. I have a "T" bone steak waiting for me.... I just don't know when I will be home to eat it. My nephew has found more for me to do for him...... Kids... go figure.

The picture below is one of them at there 25th in Hawaii. But this time they are in Yuma Az. where it is nice and warm also. They are staying in the motor home on the left. The one on the right is my oldest sister and her husbands. They are not with my parents now, but were down there last week. They are planing a quiet evening mom just got out of the hospital and needs to rest. But their children and grand children and that one great grandson wish them a happy anniversary and we send our love!

My project

These pictures are of another section of the fence, I can't find the ones I took of the part I was working on? I might have them at home. I have been house sitting at my nephews for a while and he asked me to do a few things around his place while he was gone. I hope the next time I do this I am replacing this section, it may look bad but its in great shape compared to the part I was working on!
There is more rock here than at any other place I have ever worked on, but I did get 5 holes dug and I think the fence looks much better than the old one did.

I will be going home tomorrow, but rumor has it he may need me to watch his place again next week for a few days. If he does I will be happy to do that. Its not like I have a bunch going on in tell the 12th anyway.
