June 25, 2015

The day began with an early call to my lovely wife, Linda, and though it was supposed to be a wake-up call, she was already up and heading out the door, to take their dog for a walk. The dog is going to miss Linda, when she and her folks head on back home next week. Seems like she has been gone for a long time now, and I am ready for her to come back home.

I went up to Fallbrook today, to check out the house and it is looking Great!. The floor is done, with only the base-board to be installed, and some other trim work. Most of the fixtures are in place as are most of the sinks and bathroom items. Next week they start the concrete work and not too long after that the yard work and landscaping begins. We are really getting close, and we're all excited. About the only thing that isn't moving fast are the Buy-a-Brick sales. I keep leaving them behind anytime I go anywhere, and keep missing opportunities to get some sold. Once Linda is back I'll be putting much more effort into it. I was hoping to have a bunch of them sold by now, and we've only been able to move about a dozen or so. If you're interested in finding out more about this, please get in touch with me, or just leave a comment. The blog has been open to comments for some time now, so if you've had problems in the past, please try again.

While up in Fallbrook I stopped in at Bonsal, and visited with their Chamber of Commerce. They are wanting to put together a music festival and as a result of previous conversations they asked me to stop and chat with them. I gave them some pointers and even attempted to get them connected with a few people, so I hope I've been of help. Also, while up there I got in a short 15 mile ride, and my legs sure feel it. The hills in that area are a bit more steep and though the ride "home" is fun and mostly down hill, the initial ride out is up some gnarly hills.

The rest of the evening has been quiet, and I am looking forward to my rest tonight. The girls will be coming in the morning, so we get to have some fun with more library visits and such. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.

  1. Continuing to lift up prayers.
    Philippians 4:6-7 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
