    Well this is something we can definitely agree on although for different reasons....Colorado is beautiful and when I went to meet my Honey's mom and brother up there I fell in love with its beauty....but I know I could not live through the cold winters there, nor live that far from my daughters and grandkids. Even though there are so many other places that have so much more beauty than Louisiana...Louisiana is home and will always be home to me as long as my loved ones are here.

    By the way Cody I really like your avatar...it's a wonderful picture of you and your wife.

    You might have already read about it, but Deb Copenhaver just passed away the other day. He was one of the all-time rodeo greats, and I remember seeing him ride at some of the pro-rodeos in Spokane.
    He had a restaurant in eastern Washington (Deb’s Cafe, or something like that), and it was full of photos of his rodeo trophy rides and pictures of him with other well-known rodeo greats of that era, like Casey Tibbs. We stopped there to eat if we were driving west on highway 2, and they had some great hamburgers, as I recall.
    Deb was also part of the Cowboy Church, and I believe that his son was a pastor. Here is what was written about Deb in the Spokesman-Review (Spokane paper)

    Personally don't remember him, but he was a rough-stock rider and I was into team roping. I have met Larry Mahan, Charlie Sampson and Walt Garrison among a few others that are in the Pro-Rodeo HoF in Colorado Springs, CO.. I also know about Casey Tibbs and Jim Shoulders. I've also seen the movie, The Great American Cowboy w/Larry Mahan and Phil Lyon.

    Glad the storm has passed, @Holly Saunders. The outlying parts of our state are getting pounded by storms, but there aren't many people out there, and those who live there are pretty much prepared for anything. We have a good bit of snow, but the weather otherwise has been quite pleasant. We are now moving in the time of year when snow blindness can be an issue if one is outside for long periods.

    It's real foggy over here this morning but hopefully the sun will peep through later on today. After I drop my Honey off at work I'm taking my first outing in almost two weeks of being sick to go to the bank and Albertsons. I'm hungry for my homemade chicken vegetable soup today and need a few ingredients I don't have for it and a few extras besides. I am finally starting to get some strength back and my cough is easing some. Praise God!

    I've missed my grandchildren while I've been sick but woke up this morning to these pictures. I love them. 51729513_304303490279580_6448678320161685504_n.jpg 52323697_395736477865907_214710706526748672_n.jpg

    Of course this is just a few of my grandkids...but oh how nice it was to see their joyful faces this morning. Enjoy your day and hug someone you love today...we can never give or get enough hugs. Hugs...they do a body good! :)

    Today has been a family day, first lunch and a catch up with my daughter Caroline and then on to my brother Geoff this afternoon, he is more or less the same on the permanent chemo pills and living his life as best he can, we discussed growing old withdrawing from life and dying, all downbeat topics but we had a laugh at it all as well.

    I will finish off my packing tomorrow and then early Wednesday morning I fly off to my second home [​IMG]

    Have a good Monday everyone..... [​IMG]

    Bright and sunny here. It was supposed to warm today, but it was below 0 F. this morning when I got up. We discovered some residual earthquake damage yesterday. Our dishwasher was cracked underneath. We are looking at replacements now. We will examine things more closely tomorrow. I will be working on starting more plants this afternoon.

    I love that each morning is a new day although I have to admit some days it seems like the same old, same old. Each day though is different and each day is what we make of it. We may not have control of the things that happen in our days, but we do have control over our attitude about what happens. At the end of the day when today's page has been written in your life...I hope you can smile and look forward to tomorrow. God bless you and your day with love, joy, peace, and good health.:)

    Morning all....

    It's a beautiful sunny morning.

    The birds in my garden are hungrier than because it's getting ready for the breeding season... so I have to make sure there's lots of food and water for them

    ..and a picture from our local nature reserve lake

    Hubs is off work today and for another few days, which is good news because he's worked so hard this last while and staying away overnight on several occasions , he desperately needs some downtime. .

    he's just left to take a 90 minute drive to another county to a showroom to look at a new car. I didn't go with him, much as I'd like to have gone, because when men get talking about cars they're there for hours, so I decided to stay home..

    We'll go out tomorrow for lunch or dinner, after I've had my physio

    Lovely pictures of the children @Babs Hunt ..


    Sorry to hear about the dishwasher damage @Don Alaska , I suspect you feel lucky that , you got away with so little damage,, much as it's annoying.. at least it can be replaced.!!

    Have a good day all.....

    The clouds are finally here, and the temps are in the 20s F. with calm winds. I could see outside by 0830 this morning, so I know spring is coming. I have a new dishwasher ordered and it will be out here on Friday. I am sure we will find additional damage when all the snow melts, but hopefully it will be minor. I did take my lady out to dinner after she got off work yesterday and I showed her the appliance I had picked out. I wanted to make sure that she was in agreement with my decision. Now I have to get my driveway plowed wide enough that a truck can get down it...and clear a better path to the door.
