I forgot to add one tough job that I did for five years when going to school. I loaded and dispatched large diesel trucks that hauled coal spray and heavy fuel oil to Carbon county and Idaho. On week ends I would load the trucks and then take the last one out my self. This was before Interstate highways and the driving was much more tedious. During the week I would load and dispatch after my regular job. 6:p.m. to 2:a.m. Then day time on Saturday and Sunday.

We had a very successful party this year at Matt and Amber's . Plenty of food and interesting kids. Beautiful grounds and perfect weather unlike last year when it was frost on the pumpkin.

We missed those of you who were unable to attend. Start planning for next year.

This is also a test. We seem to be having a few problems with settings. If you can read this....that's good!
This is only a test to see if this is working. An 81 year old man is taking private lessons on how to use the Blogger. The picture was tasken in 2005 and the lawn doesn't look this good at the moment.
