We had a wonderful 3 day weekend. Playing with our newest family member, little Hailey Michelle Lahman. Sarah attempted a garage sell 2 days in a row, but got rained out. A nice neighbor did stop by and donate a bunch of other stuff she could sell. It's all in my garage now. Life is like a box of chocolates.. I did 2 puppet shows on Sunday, 1 for each of the 2 services. The kids seemed to love it.. I hope the got message which was about the Good Samaritan. Love your neighbor! That reminds me.. Our other neighbors who are Russian, brought us over a large bag of pears the other day. Susan made 3 pear pies which were incredibily delicious. We took 2 of them to Church for the BBQ we had on Sunday afternoon. Yesterday which was Labor Day, I went fishing from the banks of the Columbia River up in Kalama Washington. My friend, Hans caught a squaw fish and I didn't catch a darn thing. He was smart enough to wear rain gear, and I was smart enough to find a big log to crawl under when it started raining. In case you are picturing a Texas sized log, let me remind you that the logs out here are BIG! Like the size of a car, so I was able to stay dry. Anyways, believe it or not, I had a wonderful time fishing even though I got skunked. Where we were fishing, there was a large totem pole. I told my friend that I was going to put a sign saying that it represented his family tree.. get it?? it doesn't fork!! we got a chuckle out of that one. Hope everyone else had as much fun as us. Come see us sometime soon! Love to all.

My dad came up with this name for the bird reserve that is in back of our house. We relax on the deck after a hard day of work and watch the ducks, eagles, geese, robins, teradactyls, sparrows.. etc. We will use this blog to communicate with all our friends and relatives!
