Bits and Pieces

   I haven’t been on the blog much the last few days. My family and I had the opportunity to take a short vacation over the holiday weekend.

   We spent the first night and day in Atlanta, going to see the Braves (they lost), Bass Pro Shops (I love that place) and the Georgia Aquarium.

   We then went over to Warm Springs, GA, for a couple of days of peace and quiet. That is such a beautiful area and nice community. We really enjoyed ourselves and were able to catch up on some R & R.

   I have to toot the horn for my two sons for a moment. They both played on the same baseball team this year. This was the first time this had happened for us and it was very nice. I am happy to announce that their team won both the regular season championship and the league playoff. Congratulations, Clay and Glen! In addition, Clay was selected to the All-Star team for the first time. Needless to say, he is very excited.

   Once again, I want to say thanks to all of those who read this blog. Some of you I have met, and others it seems as if we have known each other for years even though we haven’t met face-to-face. I look forward to the day when we won’t need the web to communicate.

    That is great news.
    You keep on being the family man you are and your kids will grow up and appreciate you and the way you taught them. I know you will. It is obvious now.

  3. Congratulations Clay and Glen I know Dad and Mom and Grand Mamas and Grand papa’s are very proud of ya’ll and I am too ? Blessings. Ron.

  4. I know you didn’t visit the Bass Pro Shops that is 10 minutes from our house without letting Brandon and me know you were there, did you?

    I’m glad you had a 🙂 weekend!

  5. Congratulations to your boys! To have both of them on the same team was great…a time saver too for you and Amy.

    I must visit one of those Bass pro Shops sometime. From what I hear, they’re the best.

  6. Glad to hear your trip went well – except for the Braves loss, that is. I hope the aquarium wasn’t too packed for you.

    Congrats to both your boys! My brother and I never played on the same team, so I can imagine that was a big boost to them both. Plus Mom and Dad only have one team to track instead of two. 🙂

  7. I’ve been out of pocket for a while today, so I am a little late catching up here.

    Janice, TA and Bro. Ron, thanks for the good wishes.

    Beverly, you really should visit Bass Pro Shops. They are something else.

    Heather, we will have to catch y’all next time, which according to my boys will be pretty soon.

    Misawa, there must have been 20,000 people in the aquarium. I felt like a fish myself.

  8. Hello, is anybody home?

    a person could get the feeling that ya don’t like company any more, cause ya never home, Son! 😕

  9. just kidding ya know! 😉

  10. Hi, Gordon, I’m missing your posts, but I’m glad you have your priorities right.

  11. I can only assume that you went to find your brother, nephos, and both of you fell off the earth.

  12. LOL, Garry!!! That’s funny stuff there.

    So, anyway, yeah….where are the Cloud brothers??? 😉

  13. Garry & Steve,
    seems like they have lives,
    not like the rest of us! 😉

  14. Hey, everybody. I’m still here and still kicking. We’ve been involved in VBS and some other things this week.

    I could bore you with other excuses but I won’t.

    I could tell you how I’ve been busy with corn, squash, green beans, blueberries and apples, but I won’t.

    I could tell you how I’ve been busy taking Clay to ball games, but I won’t.

    I could tell you how I have been severely lacking in motivation to write, but I won’t.

    I’m just going to keep my mouth shut and let everyone wonder what in the world I have been doing. 😉

    Seriously, it’s good to hear from all of you.

  15. You could tell us what you did with Cameron to remove him from the blogosphere, but you won’t. 😉

  16. did ya hear , that Ruth Graham died today! 😦
