Walking, sometimes, sometimes not...

Friday night, I walked over to the Coin bridge.  Then, as I looked across the way towards home, I got the bright idea that it would be much closer to walk down Dry Creek home instead of back around the road.  Wrong.  After walking for about 45 minutes, I was right behind JR Snow's house.  It only took a hour and 10 minutes to walk the road, but it took almost and hour and a half taking the short cut through the fields.  It was dark by the time I got home.

So, to make up for that, I did not walk anymore over the weekend.  Today, I walked over to the rock house where Patsy lived at one time.  It took about an hour and 50 minutes to get there and back.

I have a machine at Clayton's house, but I have not used it yet.  I was hopping George would use it, but I don't think he will.

Pictures along Dry Creek, Friday night.  The pumpkins had washed down from somewhere upstream.  I saw 50 or more of them.  If Helen was here, she could walk over and get free pumpkins.

New pets


I got the kids a fish tank.  They had one gold fish from the fair and now they  have two more gold fish, a long fish they call slimie, and a cat fish.


Robert's pumpkin.


Hannah's pumpkin.


Together.


Slimie.


The three gold fish.

Today was  a beautiful day.  Back to work tomorrow.

Saturday, Party Day


Hannah went camping with the scouts.  She will return tomorrow around noon.  I hope she had a great time.  It rained all day.  I sent a rain jacket and a poncho.  She was really excited about going.

The rest of us went to the Powell / Rudd party at Alpena.  Patsy and Donnie did not make it this year.  Patsy called afterwards to see how it went.  She said she wanted to go, but just did not feel up to it.  Helen searched high and low for Uncle Truman and could not understand why he did not show up.



Betty had the tombstone people set a slab under Clayton's stone.  Unlike Richard's, Clayton's slab is granite.   



It does look much better.



Cousin Winnie bought the boy a NASCAR.  He was thrilled.  He said, "Thank you, Winnie."

No calls from the keepers of the girl so far, so I guess everything is going fine.

Brother's stone


They set brother's stone today.


Helen and I buried his ashes just in front of the stone.  The dark markings along the bottom are water spots from the rain.


Brothers together.

Monday mailbox day


We are bored.


Here comes Emmy!


Going to Helen's.


We're going too!


Helen's new mailbox, from Mailboxes by Greg.  Notice the HP, for Helen Powell.  I guess that is the way he thinks of her.


Now, Greg's new mail boxes. GA for George Aday, George Aday and Greg Aday.  No Mom Aday.  Greg said he could not stand Helen having a better looking mail box than he had.
