It's only August but November is right around the corner. If you're registered, vote. If you're not, then get registered. This is an historic election. Be part of it!

Check your brakes!

Paul has aquired the necessary documentation and bribed.....errr, convinced the DMV he has the skills to navigate our public roadways. He proudly purchased this car within the first week and now takes himself and his sis to & from school each day. Of course with this new found independence comes unexpected responsibility ("Paul, go to the corner Git & Go for some smokes and a six pack!") which he thus far accepts with a minimum of teenage, under his breath, grumbling. Seriously, though, as nervous as the whole thing makes me, I'm proud of his choice of a modest, smart vehicle and he seems to take my repetitive, fatherly drving advice to heart.

Back to School

The twins started 4th grade today and Kale is starting over in Stillwater. I'm trying to adjust to the school year schedule and we're looking forward to the changing season.

Oh, we're having fun now!

As stated before, it is a well-known fact that pitching a tent brings rain. I guess we may have pitched too many tents. Though Friday was as nice as you could ask for in August, most of Saturday and all of Saturday night was wet. From a steady drizzle to monsoon-like torrents, we got soaked! The kids and old folks made the best of it while we could but when you're "sleeping" in a puddle there's not much "best" to be found. Still, it was great to get together with all who made it. Lot's of laughs and memories, good and bad. I'm sure we'll do it all again!

Back from Hiatus

The past couple of weeks the Wildo's have been hauling hay,(not done yet) clearing garage space,(never gonna get done) sorting Cathy's moms household, (nearly impossible) getting Kale's stuff to Stillwater, (still more to do) and trying to keep up with all the usual everyday stuff. Seems like summer's over too soon again. The kids just groan when somebody asks "when does school start?" I'm going to try to camp this weekend if hay doesn't get in the way. The weather is supposed to cool off (only mid 90's) and a better chance for rain. (it is a well known fact that pitching a tent brings rain)
Friday and Saturday at the usual location if everything works out.
