June 21, 2017 - Wednesday 

This orchid started blooming in April.  It has 15 blossoms on it. This picture was taken on April 30.  Today it looks the same. Its so beautiful. It was a Mother's Day gift from the Petersons last year.  It's the first time I have ever had one rebloom the next year. I was surprised at the number of blooms.  

Tomorrow I am going to Chattanooga with Jim and Beverly Peterson for a few days vacation.  While there we will get to see Tina participate in a Triathlon.  This is her 3rd year entering this race. This is a picture at her first Triathlon in 2015.  It's one of my favorite pictures. 


My son has been camping at a lake near here and enjoying what he loves to do -  FISH!!

April 24, 2107
Today is Monday, an overcast, damp day. It has rained a lot in the past week. About 6" in the Nashville area. On a positive note, everything has turned green. The lawn (weeds) are growing rapidly. I mowed a week ago on Saturday and by Wednesday some areas needed to be cut again. I should have mowed Saturday because it's looking pretty shaggy, but it rained all weekend. Hopefully this week will see some sunshine and drying out. Just heard on TV that by Friday there may be some severe weather again in this area (meaning the south). Am planning a trip to Moorehead, KY with Tina, Salem, Paisley, and Sharon Harris for the state power tumbling meet.  Hope the weather is good. Looking forward to it.

The above picture was taken a couple of years ago. The doily was made by my mother, Luella Tracy just before Brooking was born. So that would have been late 1999 or early 2000. There are 2 girls on it representing Krista and Irion Peterson. The heart in the middle is Brooking (gender not known at the time!).

Just posting something to see if I remember how to do it. Will try to post more when I go on my California trip in May.
