Adventure with the Bad Boys

Sherry and I were blessed with two fine boys. ( I say that because it is expectedWinking smile )  Truth is both were a pain in the rear at one time or the other. Fortunately It did not usually  happen at the same time. AAAAAAA. Like every family some of the times were not good. But the majority of the time, I thank the Lord for.

I have been reminded time and time again, you reap what you sow. But dangit, I wasn’t all that bad, was I?

Anyway it is wonderful to enjoy our sons at this age. We traveled too much in our lives and they never had the chance to set down roots.  Jack Jr was born in  Biloxi, Mississippi and Mark was born in Kirksville, MO. We took JJ back where he was born, now on this trip we will take Mark to his town of birth, Kirksville, Mo.

The both have wonderful families that have given us so much joy. we will keep these families up to date with the Shipslog.

The destination of this adventure with the Bad Boys is the Badlands, seems fitting. AAAA

Of course we plan to take in the sights of Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse. Deadwood and Sturgis, possibly the Devils Tower and Custer National Park.

That area of South Dakota holds so many sights, we are hoping for a great trip. Our adventure starts in early afternoon. Son Mark is working with his Cousin Steve in Charlotte, and will work a 1/2 day before we leave. Jusg got word, Jack Jr gonna work some today also.  So sometime today this trip should begin.

It does sound like a wonderful trip that I know will be enjoyed by all! I was pleasantly surprised with all that South Dakota had to offer for places to visit when we went there years ago on vacation. Safe travels!

to keep that boy straight he will not listen..we don't want to take him out of the will. Tell JJ maybe some of his manners will get through to his Brother. I do love both boys..Ya have fun...
