Happy Anniversary Happy Anniversary Haaappy Anniversary to me and Carolyn…and other things going on in our lives


I know I know it’s been a while. Work and family stuff and Karma
have been taking up a ton of my time. The last Saturday of July was the
La Vigna picnic and it was great. My uncle Fran, cousins Ira and Lou
came back from Michigan for it and we all had a great time. The weather
was very hot and humid so that made for a low turn out of people.
Weather like that usually makes the older crowed stay home, this
happens about once every 5 years. So hopefully next year it will be
better.

August has been flying by in a blur. Karma, Avery and I have been
going to puppy class for the past 3 Saturdays and have 2 more to go.
Karma is doing very well on his learning. I just have to remember that
he is only 3 months old and to not get frustrated when he forgets
things or just won’t do them. I had the same problem with Avery when
she was small. Hey I expect big things from my family and pets at an
early age :). Yesterday was Carolyn and my 14th wedding anniversaries,
we went to H.I. Rib Inc.
for dinner. It was very good and tasty and filling. We had a sampler of
ribs for an appetizer. Carolyn had the steak and I had the pork chops.
Then we went to Peggy Sues for ice cream then home to sit in the back
yard to play with the dog. I will say this about having a cattle
dog…the amount of time I am getting him exercised has gotten me away
from in front of the television and the computer…so that’s a good
thing.

I am looking at what the next big project will be in the house. I
know that I want to get the back door replaced with a new one and a
full length window/screen storm door. I am also looking at putting the
kitchen redo back on the schedule. I want to take the wall out between
the kitchen and the dining room, opening up the whole down stairs. This
is for a few reasons. 1. To get more air flow through the house. 2. To
open up the kitchen for more space and there other reasons. Of course
the whole room will need to be gutted and new flooring needs to be put
down and new cabinets need to be put in and hung. If I take the wall
out then I can put an island in and move the cook top to it or move the
dishwasher to the island giving me more cabinet space. It really is
time to do the kitchen, I am getting real sick of the tangerine colored
counters. I just have to figure out the money. There is also the
laundry room and back bathroom that needs new flooring and Avery’s room
that needs the paneling ripped off and dry wall hung and painted. And
to do the major ones (kitchen and Avery’s room) I need some money and I
need my uncle Dean to help me. But I look at it this way any upgrades I
make on the house will increase the value of the house.

So that’s whats going on in the world of Carolyn, Avery, Karma and William…..

In honor of my 14th anniversary yesterday and to say I love you to my wife. All the way from Bedrock:
