Looking Back...Busy 2009 Summer

We ran into Paul and his wife from my work at the annual Mountain Man get together in July. They were having a lot of fun with some of the people staying in teepees and tents. Pretty cool...
We kicked back on our friend, Cathy & Ross' patio with Gary cooking for the whole group. This is Rick and Deneen another horse friend.

Jen and Christine trying to keep the sun out of their eyes! Sure miss that sun right now.

In August, I reserved two tent spots at Bullard's Beach and all of us had a great time. Didn't get as many crabs as they would have liked and the weather was cold but still had a great time. Here's Chris and the dogs playing in the surf.

Michael and Kevin. Dig those high-water pants!

I am, of course, dressed for the polar region!

Kayla and Ashley messing around. I'm sure it was very boring for two teenagers but I loved our short time with them.

Here's the whole group except Troy and I. I think Troy sat on a log for most of that day :O)

The end of October Sue and Jeff came to visit Jeff''s Dad. I got to spend a day with Sue so we decided to go riding at the beach. Oregon weather didn't fail us as you can see. Talk about some drowned rats! Here's Sue and Cathy after riding for an hour in horizontal rain and at one point hail.

Sue and I at Bullards Beach. Sue was so wet that when she moved, it squeezed the water from her pants and filled her boots. Now that's wet!

While Sue was here, we went to visit Gram. Gram looks great although I can't say that she remembers a lot. It's very difficult for her to remember who we are but she visited with us anyways. Sue looks much better now that she dried out a bit.

Gram and I. Gram had no idea who I was or why I was visiting her but that's ok. At one point, she thought that Jerry was her oldest and couldn't remember her daughter Janette either so guess that's to be expected at almost 94.

Jerry came up to surprise Gram for her 94th birthday. Jerry, Gram, Gary, Sumi, Troy and I all went to Sizzler which is her favorite place to eat. Shawn & Chris also showed up but they were both sick so didn't want to pass on their germs.

Jerry, that was very sweet for you to surprise Gram. Such a long distance for so short a trip. By Sunday night he was back home. Love you, Jerry!
Well, this may be a lot combined into one post but sometimes you just got to do what you got to do :O)

Drowned rats for sure, but still a great day to spend riding in the rain and time with my sister. Not a bad way to spend the day. Wish I could have been there to visit with Uncle Jerry, but another time. Loved spending time with Gram and you since she was telling stories and you were being such a butthead and making me want to die laughing. I thought you were going to pee your pants you were laughing so hard. Gram is doing great and I think enjoyed our visit which is what it is all about.

Really cool post Banana. I love that Jerry made it, I just absolutely love him.

You and Sue in the picture where you are all wet totally cracks me up.

I Love you all.
