At the lake......


Went down to the lake again today inside of my favorite park, Fontainebleau State Park in Mandeville, LA.
I visit this park at least twice a week due to its wide-open splendor, mixture of nature trails, beach area,
mature live oak landscapes, geocaching and camping. There is nothing like the simple goodness of nature.
(Especially during a long 3-day weekend....)

Time after Time.....

Live Oak Landscape 5/18/08 Mandeville, LA

Another 24480 minutes of my life has elapsed since my last blog update (17 days) ---

I have been feeling well and preparing for my daughter's summer break and the visit of my son in the next 3 weeks. We are heading for a trip to Arkansas in mid-June to just take a break and experience a different pace for a week. It will be a celebration of sorts, an after party for my kids and their school year & just a time to realize how important time away from the office is for me. :)

My daughter made the A-honor roll & National Jr. Honor Society for this year. She also made the broadcast/television team at school for next year, (1 of 10 people out of over 250 applicants), and I truly believe that broadcast journalism is something that she would excel for her career. She is smart, beautiful and mostly importantly enjoys to write and "be on camera" --- so what do you know, she may end up on National Geographic's Wild Kingdom (which currently could be filmed in her bedroom) --- :D

I am proud of my children. I still cannot believe that I am getting older each year and not sure how much wiser I am becoming. It is a interesting cycle of life to become older, but until something better comes along, it is where I am right now. ;)
Not much else going in my life to report of any significance, good or bad --- so I presume that is a good thing overall. :D

I am thankful, I am happy & Life is good.

Coming home to roost!


The two Canada Geese from the shots taken and posted in my 5/08 blog are back, this time with 2 goslings in tow.
The circle of life, the beauty of nature...the comfort of home. Long live the goose! LOL.... :)
