Thought you would enjoy this picture.

Dad had his knee replacement surgery on Tuesday. He came home today Friday morning, he's doing pretty good. His leg is swelled but he was sent home with a machine to be kept on his leg for swelling. He had his first therapy session today, and he's getting back to his old grouchy self. I couldn't resist getting a picture of his leg, it's one of those things that I do, so enjoy the picture.

Chelsea's Pictures from Florida

Here are just a few pictures Chelsea took on her trip to Florida.
She had the camera sitting on the ground and waited for the wave to come in so she could take the picture.

These are just Chelsea being Chelsea.

Here are some pictures from Perky's funeral. The funeral home set on the Mississippi River, I had to go across the road and get some picture.
This pictures looks straight across the river.

This view is looking towards Davenport.

This view looks towards Bettendorf. This is the bridge that took us to Rock Island where the Arsenal was. Perky was buried in a Military Arsenal, I've never been to one so I snapped this picture looking out of my truck window. We had an escort into the Arsenal and we had to be escorted out.

Sunday after visitation almost everyone went out to eat at the Golden Corral. The man on the left is Justin, Linda's son. The other to is mom and dad in case you couldn't tell.

Lisa rode to Iowa with me Diane didn't attend. Lisa and I shouldn't travel together we are so opposite. Lisa is hot all the time and wants it cold, I'm cold most of the time and don't like it as cold, good thing I took an extra blanket I froze at night in the hotel room.

This is Francis her son Jason and his wife Natalie

They're so glad to get their picture taken.

This is Linda her boyfriend Shawn and his mother and her husband.

Don't let this picture fool you Jackie did eat, all of his empty plates covered the table next to them.
After the funeral on Monday we went to the Eagles club for a luncheon. The 2 men in the back are Justin (Linda's son) and Jim, Justin's dad.

Christopher and Jenny.

Jason and Natalie

This is Angie, Gary's 2nd wife and Amanda, Gary's daughter.

A Good Day

Alex and I went shopping today for John, it's his birthday. After that I went to get my hair trimmed but the stylist wouldn't be until 1 p.m. so we had 2 hrs to waste. We went to walmarts then I took him to Arbys for lunch, then we went to the bible book store and looked around, then it was time to go back to the beauty shop. After the beauty shop we went an played putt putt, Alex won the first 9 holes I won the 2nd 9 holes. After putt putt he went on the go carts. Before heading home we stopped at DQ and then a bakery by the house we got John a huge cup cake shaped like a mouse. While at this bakery I couldn't resist getting me a slice of my favorite cake (tres leche) mmmmm...

P.S. I would like to wish Jack Hounshell a Happy Birthday... Today is his birthday also.

He's Home

Alex made it home today from camp. He had a great time, but he looked a little tired and it sounded as if he was losing his voice. Actually a big part of the kids looked tired and sounded as if they were losing their voice.

Today Alex left for Church camp, he wont be back until friday. Chelsea is leaving about 4:00 in the morning, she's going to Florida again this time with John's family. I think if she was able she would live there and never come back. Chelsea will be gone until the 15th. All I have to do now is decide how to spend my free time.
