Once again, this year our Knights of Columbus council gave out food baskets to needy families of St. Bernard Parish, LA.
Cheryl and I celebrated our 33rd anniversary this week by eating at Nuvolari's in Mandeville, LA. It was pretty good but not necessarily worth what we paid for the meal. The service staff was excellent.
For starters we both had a wedge of lettuce with a bleu cheese dressing, bacon, and large chunks of bleu cheese. It was excellent. For our main course Cheryl had an 8 oz Filet with Flash Fried Oysters while I had a 14 oz Ribeye with Pan Seered Gulf Shrimp.
On April 10, the birthday of our son Ryan, we also lost a family member. George H. Grunewald Jr passed away in Cloverdale, CA. George lived in California with his sister Mickey and niece Marykate. Something that I did not know until today was that he was a member of a band back in the 80's named Short Dogs Grow. He went by the name George Fenley. He toured with them on a whim by hoping in their van with his drums and dressed only in a denim vest, a pair of shorts and some worn out tennis shoes. He wound up staying in California for most of the remainder of his life.
You will be missed George.
Say hello to Aunt Lele and Uncle George for us.
Today I called my mom to see how she is feeling. The call went something like this.
Me: How are you feeling?
Mom: Who’s this?
Me: Your son.
Mom: Which one?
Me: The good looking one.
No mom it is not Billy.
I finally got to get a few hours of relaxation on the tractor. I bush hogged about three acres of grass and it really looks good.
Now all I need to do is:
Believe me you, there are more items to be added that I am not thinking of right now.
It has been a long time coming but we are making progress on the home site. The skirting is ninety-nine percent complete ( I ran out of 7″ spikes and had to get more). the fence is sixty percent complete (we did more the following weekend than the pictures show. With Mardi Gras approaching this weekend no progress will be made. Kelly and her family are coming in from Colorado and we will be trying to spend time with them as much as possible.
We are finally able to move the mobile home onto the property. We are doing it on 12-28-2011 and of course it is costing more to do than the estimate that we were given. But, I did check some other movers and they gave the same price within $50.
After it is on the property I have to did a trench for the electrical and hook up the sewer. The sewer pipe is already underground.
Well, the land purchase has been completed for several months now. I have been there every weekend since purchasing it except the one weekend that our son got married.
The land had a lot more debris on it than was visible with the 5 foot tall weeds that it had when we looked at it.
I built a well pump house and installed the new well equipment. The water tested good and we are getting close to moving the home to the land.
This is meant to be a page for the entire family. If anyone in the family would like to add any photos to this page, feel free to get them to me and I will upload them to the page. They can be public or private albums (with password access).
