Just wanted to drop in and say hello.  I don't really have a lot to say, except that things are going well.  The kids and I made these cute lion masks last week.

A super large tropical storm is heading our way today.  For the most part it is going to hammer the west side of the mountains and will concentrate on Washington and northern Oregon.  I hope that everybody stays safe.  Fill up those bathtubs, guys, so that you can use the water to flush the toilet if you are on a well and you lose power.

The Weather

Hugs, and here is to a great upcoming week!

Hello Kathy,
Stay calm and take care!

We got some heavy rain early this afternoon, about the time the football game was getting underway.and it's a little breezy, but nothing dramatic. Now the sun is shining as the Seahawks have played the second half in the sunshine.

Cute masks!

Hope you ride out that storm okay, Kathy. Seems odd to have something tropical this late in the season and up near y'all! Take care.

Love the masks! So cute. What did yo use for the curly-cue mane? It is tough to tell on my laptop.

Kathy--Those lion masks are adorable! I too want to know how you made the mane.

I read your comment on Lisa Ricard Claro's blog, and wanted to know if you read Jodi Picoult. Her books do do not disappoint--in my opinion. Lots of research go into them. "Handle with Care" is one of my favorite ones, and I just finished her "The Storyteller" which is about a holocaust survivor.

Just in case you haven't read her stuff, you might find you enjoy her...

Hi Everybody ... we really were not effected by that storm here in Central Oregon.

The lion manes are just yarn. It came as a straight strand of brown entwined with a knobby tan. It was perfect for the main.

Sioux, I have read a few of her books, and she does do a lot of research. Sometimes I think that she tries to put in too many themes at once though. The one that I read that I remember well was the guy on death row.

Thanks to all of you. I will be by to visit you soon. I am really behind on blogging, as usual but I appreciate your visits and comments.

The lions made me smile. You are so creative. We're getting rain today and is it ever raining. I love sleeping on a rainy Sunday afternoon.

The 2012 Army All-American Day Event

2012 Army All American Game Video

Photo Source: Nike "The Opening Brochure" Pages 2 and 3
During the week of July 5-9, 2011, Cary and I were privileged to attend "The Opening", watching quarterback grandson Tyler Matthews (#43 the first day, and #15 on game days) play with 150 of the best high school football players in the United States. The event was held at Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon. I hope that you enjoy the pictures ... some are better photos than others, but I tried to capture as many kids as I could.

There are approximately 500 photos in these slide shows. They are of the players, the fans, our family and everybody/everything that caught my eye. They are in chronological order. No names are on the pictures, even if I do know who people were.

As time permits, I will also be writing blog posts about my experience as a spectator. Since I still have a lot to learn about football and this is not a sports blog, I'll write some human interest stories as seen through my eyes. That said, Tyler Matthews, YOU ROCK!!!!
