I am here full time! Renters are out. There’s a lot to be done in the house the next few months so I’m working on that.

Talking to my 15 year old about photo shoot ops for this year’s WCCC calendar. And we have some great ideas.

With gas at over $4 a gallon here in town I am slowly getting a few 5 gallon gas cans to fill up on my way back from work. Company truck and gas card for commute. Then fill the containers on my dime where it’s 80 cents cheaper.

Told my wife. One night out of the week is for the Colonel. I have an extra Weber gas grill I can roll out and grill dinner. While I work. She just needs to bring the food out to the detached garage. She’s ok with that!

I never have really taken it out after nightfall.

I’m suprised how well the pic came out on my IPhone.

For all I know they could be original or slightly newer since poor maintenance after dad and left to their son?

So last month wife has mammogram. Long story short. Non aggressive breast cancer. Thankful for friends in Bay Area with bio med back grounds.

Kelly is has been staying friends for the past few weeks. She was supposed to be up here last weekend full time.

Rough times. Thought I was done with running back and forth to the bay.

Work on house here over rides work on car.

So thankful for her friends taking care of her there. Hoping she can be here around the first of December!

My wife is here!

Breast cancer on the minor side. Still consults to go through and then compare and constrast.

No Chemo thankfully! Just radiation therapy.

So thankful for friends in this transition difficulty.

Oh yes the Cougar fires up and runs just as always!
