I have been struck by the flu, and I only feel OK when I am sitting still, and I'm sure you guys all know how much I love that! So, I am keeping busy with computer activities, downloading photos, uploading photos, organizing my web sites, etc. So, here are some random photos I just downloaded off my cameras. Enjoy!

My scrap bud Carolyn gave this to me in Ontario. She used K2R metal pnaels (4 x 4) and strung them together with o-rings. She said it took her less than 5 minutes to create. I love fast projects! Carolyn also made one for a friend of hers that was undergoing surgery, as a token for encouragement.

I have tried to take photos of this wall hanging to show how beautiful it is, but nothing is doing it justice. This is as good as it gets. But it is simply four of the 4 x 4 acrylic maple leaf frames, painted with paint dabber, stamped with StazOn ink and Stickled slightly. Fast and cute - a great hostess gift!

This past Sunday, Rodney and I went to the Larry the Cable Guy show at the Pensacola Civic Center. To coin a phrase I see on the backs of pickup truack all over Florabama - Git R Done!

Who would think the beach would be enjoyable in November? We went to the beach on Sunday, and Xan did his usual screaming routine when we suggested he put his feet in the water, but this fit only lasted about 2 minutes. Then he was playing "jump the waves" with Grandma Nancy.

Will was a little fish, as always. Actually, he was the only one in the water without a wet suit on - crazy child! And we let him pick out his own shorts. I think these are an old pair of Rodney's.

While Xan got brave dipping his toes in the water, he still wasn't ready to go get his own pail of water, so Will helped out.

Slade is doing well. He's gotten skinny, but still enjoys eating, laying in the sun and stealing balls from the kids' play room, so he seems to still be enjoying life. We just put a flannel shirt on him to keep him warm at night.

Rodney and I spent two days aways from home, heading to Biloxi so Rodney could play some cards. On he way back home, we stopped at the ultimate man store, the Bass Pro Shop Outdoor World. It reminded me a lot of a natural history museum with all the great wildlife displays. This is the waterfall and pond at the back of the shop. Despite all the camo and bows, I was still impressed and kept busy for about 45 minutes looking at everything while Rodney shopped for bow hunting gear. He is quite excited about going to Illinois next week to hunt.

Rodney was here :)

This is us in front of a pumpkin display the Biloxi's Beau Rivage hotel, where we gambled, had a couples massage and had a great steak dinner.

Loved all the pictures - get better soon. Bob's biopsy was positive, so he'll have surgery tomorrow and might be out for 4-6 weeks - he hung his inspiration up in the kitchen - on the back, it says Keep the Faith!

Hope that the flu is gone really soon. Bet it was wonderful to get home to your family and enjoy some down time. Looks like your mom is enjoying the boys!

Hope you are on your way to health. Thinking of you.
