If you’re like me, I keep shooting photos on my phone and then forgetting about them. Recently I took a good look at all those images and was amazed to discover it was like a biography of my life over the last several years. Both personal and humorous, here’s a photo scrapbook of my last 36 months.
Had to downsize the in-laws belongings and move them closer to us including selling the Father In-Laws ’35 Ford that he’s owned since he was 16. Boy, was he thrilled with me!
Son Connor giving a medical presentation for college. Still don’t understand what he was talking about. But he looked good doing it.
You can’t beat a good car show
Had to take over the management of the in-laws duplex in Lees Summit. Progressing nicely on new deck

Oldest brother Greg, who suffered a stroke, and I enjoy our outings at Loose Park.
For a little fine art and culture, Nita and I take a break in Branson, MO.
Christmas with Nita’s family is a very serious business. Must be able to sing and play an instrument.

Took ten days off to drive the Pacific Coast Highway. Starting point was San Francisco with a quick tour of a Japanese Tea Garden

So, Nita and the kids always joke with me because my constant mantra is, “Give me a conclusion.” My conclusion is in the last few years I’ve witnessed tragic misfortunes and unparalleled beauty. Isn’t that what life is all about. All you can do is just strap in and enjoy the ride!
