Light Posting Ahead

As if I could get any "lighter" than I already am.....

We're head out to Colorado Thursday morning to see the grandbaby, hang out with the family, and do some serious house hunting.

Here's the little guy all dressed up for his first Mother's Day:

I've got about 12 items from my eBay sales to get packed and shipped today, and then have some chores around the house to do before we get out of here.

And I have to get my rolling duffle out of the garage and pack it up.

I'll be on the Iowa all day Wednesday doing some meetings and a recap of our Armed Forces Day Cross-Band test where we had the Iowa on-the-air as NEPM for the first time since 1990.

I went pretty well, with a few operator error snafus, and a few technical problems, but we had a great turn out, plenty of operators, and some great food from one of our new members whose wife owns a sandwich shop, and makes killer potato salad.

Had some "family issues" yesterday that shot the whole day (Rev. Paul knows what I'm talking about), but that seems to have settled down for now.

Pix from the Iowa NEPM ops might be posted later today, God willin' and the crick don't rise!


  1. Be careful and have a good time.

  2. We're definitely looking forward to it

  3. Looks like a decent weather window.

    1. Yeah, some looks like a bunch of rain when we get there, and then rain turning to snow Thursday night.

    2. Spoke too soon. Bring a warm coat, gloves, and a hat.

    3. I always take a jacket and hat. Don't own any gloves....yet!

  4. What a great looking little gentleman. :)
    Safe trip to you both, and God bless you all.

    1. He's up to almost 8 pounds now.

      I guess being home agrees with him.

      The dogs are keeping close watch on him. When he cries, one of the dogs runs to either stepson or daughter-in-law whining!


Keep it civil, please....

Meet Luna!

 Great name for our new pup, eh? She's camera shy, and "Red Eye Removal" doesn't work for dogs! She's two years old, p...
