Dinner with the Grands (Marks side)

Taking the family out in shifts this time, Mark, Luke and Matt first. To the Texas Road House, for some good road kill I hope.

I had to get this picture. I have one like this of Elsie Mae the GGdaughter in Utah.


We had a good time, all went well.


Thanks for coming this way. I was surprised at the number of folk who took time to set down at the computer and greet everyone.

PS: This deserves a repeat so here is Gen of the Army Omar N. Bradley:

"The world has achieved brilliance without wisdom, power without conscience. Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants......

We know more about war than we know about peace, more about killing than we know about living."



Not the first car in America, but this is the one accepted as making Autos affordable to the average American. Thanks to Henry Ford a visionary. The 1919 Tin Lizzy!

Glad to see all the family. Matt and Luke sure are fine looking boys. Little Stella is growing.
Glad everybody had a good time.

Your Grands and Greats are beautiful next generations. Nice you got to go to TX Roadhouse, one of our favorite eateries on the road. Glad to see you having a nice day with the kids.

Gen. Bradley speaks the bitter truth. It's scary to think we know more about killing than living...something has got to change.

A blessed day to you lovelies.

Those are some wonderful pictures of your family. Looks like yours likes to get together and eat as much as mine does. Glad Stella is smiling at you now. That statement at the end makes me wonder...can that really be true??? Happy Fourth of July to you all!
