That’s pretty close.

Home, sweet, home.

Somebody needs to buckle down and get all of this crap unpacked.

photon - futon

eh…that’s pretty close

Oh, I almost forgot!  My niece was born three days before we left CO.  I said hi and got out of town before I had to change any diapers.

Cleaning grapes to get ready for grandpop’s annual wine making bonanza.

Picking pears in the backyard.

Grandpop said we could pick as many as wanted, but the only ones left were up high—just use the picker.

Turns out the “picker” is a coffee can on a stick and it doesn’t pick for shit.

Fundraiser breakfast at the American Legion

It’s hard for a Legion Post to survive in a town of 400 people.  Grandpop gifted me a membership as soon as I joined the military.  I’m not a big fan of some of the Legion’s work, but I’ll probably keep paying dues until I die or the Post goes under, whichever comes first.

In 10 years of membership, this was my first attendance.  Keep hanging on, Post 619.  Maybe I’ll be back in another decade or so.

If grandma catches him in her flower box again she’s gonna throw him in front of a tractor.

He still kicks my ass on the golf course.

Took a break from the interstate with nine holes at the North County Country Club with gramps.
