Yes, I am Still Alive!

Yes, folks, I am still alive, and thanks to the Lord for that! I have been so busy that I could drop to the floor and sleep in WalMart if everyone would just walk around me. School has me out of sorts this year, and I'm working hard to get things going the way I'd like them to go. Nobody else seems to want to play by the rules I make, though... hmmm...

What's been going on around here? I have managed to get the fall decorations out in the house, but I haven't managed to make it to the porch, yet. I've been working on a couple of Santas - one of which will be offered in the October edition of the Humble Arts, so stop by to see the goodies the HARTS artists have created.

Well, there's Ol' Saint Nick now. He's an original from my little Santa shop. He's sitting amongst the pumpkins on the fireplace at the moment, so he really needs a new home!

Gayland's still working hard on the addition. We have part of the metal on the roof now!!

Wooohooo!!! New craft room, here I come!!!!!!!
We've got Sunday evening service in the arena tonight, so I've got to wrap it up. One of our members had everything set up this morning (we all new beforehand), and asked his wife(who was on stage in the band) to "re" marry him tonight in the arena on their anniversary. So, we've got a weddin' to go to tonight!
Hope the Lord is sloppin' blessin's on your plate!

New Family Member!

We'd like to introduce our newest family member, Cocoa!
She's a four year old sweetheart that's come to live with us. She has been the pride and joy of my second cousin that grew up with my dad. His health has been declining, and he has decided Cocoa should come live with us. With both tears of sadness and joy, we welcomed her into the family as we pray for his health to improve.

Cowboy Capital of the World!

We had a fantastic time this Labor Day Weekend at the annual Celebrate Bandera Celebration! It carries the title of being the Cowboy Capital of the World. There are hitchin' posts in front of many of the buildings, and horses (and longhorns) are parked all over the place. We had a camera malfunction during the Saturday parade, so I didn't get all the photos I was hoping for. I was able to get some great shots, though, of many of us that camped in the park. Those are posted below in the previous post.
