BULLIES come in all ages

BULLIES come in all ages
(click to see movie trailer)

Surround yourself with positive people,
energy, and situations;
always avoid negativity.


Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So, love the people who treat you right.

Forgive, and then forget about the ones who don't.

Sunday is for Family

Guam, 1953

I believe the happiest times of Daddy's life were the 20 years he was in the Marine Corps. He was proud to be a jarhead.

Happy Trails,

Very cool old photo! This is a good system for you to prompt you to digitally archive your old photos! Very smart.

Actually there's a story behind this picture. This is the day he met your mother. She was bowling in the lane next to him and mentioned to her girlfriends what a cute guy he was. He overheard her, bought her a coke and the rest is history!

At least that's how I'll imagine it! :)

Kit that is what Tom says, the dogs are the way they are because of you!! Dogs are the way they are because of the people they live with. If the people are not good people the dogs are not good dogs.
My computure is not happy today!!!

Your old family pictures are great.

My wife and I really like old pictures. She has just finished a DVD of 186 family pictures for her mother's 90th birthday. I'm sure her mother will enjoy it. Last February I made a DVD of old family pictures (some as old as 100 years)for my sister and took it from Michigan to Florida. She died of lung cancer 15 days later. I was so glad I could do that for her and bring just little happines.

I'm horrible at bowling, but still like going. Does that make me a loon? Oh wait, don't answer...
