Storms and Tornados

The 1st picture is to the east of us, the 2nd to the south and the 3rd is towards the NE. We really didn't get much other than a few good hard downpours and a little wind. Corydon, Ky. which is about 40 miles south of us was hit by a tornado and there was a lot of destruction. I haven't heard of any serious injuries or deaths.

Tulip Tree

Our Tulip Tree is so pretty this year. Many years it burst into bloom and then we get a frost and it is ruined. So far this year, it's been safe. Tulips are the Indiana State Tree.

We make them work!!!

Autin has a new toy. He thinks running the RotoKiller is the greatest thing in the world. He tilled quite a bit of the garden. Of course we were standing just out of camera range at every minute in case he got trouble.

An Amazing Woman

This is an amazing woman. She is the grandmother of one of my grooms. She is also Cherokee Indian. In their wedding there will be Cherokee traditions included. That will be a first for me and I'm very excited about it. Two weeks before this picture was taken at the Bridal Shower she had a stroke. The doctors told the family that she would not make it. After a week, she greeted her daughter as she walked in the hospital room barking out orders and wanting to go home.

The Vikings


The Vikings invaded North Posey High School! The school mascot is a Viking so this troupe of reenactors setup their camp on the school grounds and gave demonstrations throughout the day. This is a quern. This is how they ground their wheat to make flour. Another stone fits on the top and in spun around to produce a fine flour.

Christian Prom

The kids had such a great time at the Salvation Army Christian Prom. Each year the Salvation Army really goes all out to make a special night for the kids. Food, drinks, a DJ, and a crazy photographer who takes all the pictures you want.
I think I have as much fun as they do.

Boy Scouts Pack 390




Austin got his 1st set of slides that he has earned as a Tiger Cub. The Blue and Gold Banquet is a big event for our Pack. Each Father and Son is to make a cake and decorate it for the contest. This was Austin's sailboat cake. It was funny watching them make it. Of course I had to give some guidance on the decorating. I showed Austin how to make birds and waves with the icing tips on a practice board and then he tried his hand on the cake. Did a great job, I think! All of the boys take this very seriously and study their handbooks.
