"He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion."
John Michael Montgomery sings....enjoy!

Before Thanksgiving, me, Deb and her parents went to see Reba and Kelly Clarkson in concert in Columbus. As a fan club member; I was lucky enough to win a meet and greet pass so I was able to meet Kelly and have my picture taken with her prior to the show. I've posted our photo so I hope you enjoy it! The day after Thanksgiving is the lighting of our courthouse and Deb and I always attend this with her family. We happily met up with Julie and Kim and Julie's Mom and Mike while there; so we took an updated - and cold - picture of us at the event. That's about it for now. It's time to start some serious Christmas shopping and Deb and I are putting up our tree today. I wish everyone a safe and happy Holiday season!

I can't believe I haven't updated since Labor Day! Sorry about that! Let's see - since then, we have been to see the Lion King - it was AMAZING! The animals were so lifelike that at times, you forgot they were people dressed up!
We went to see NKOTB (New Kids on the Block for all of you non-fans!). It was a GREAT concert! They sang old songs and new and I have never seen a crowd that stood for the ENTIRE show - floor to ceiling - everyone was on their feet - dancing, singing - the energy in the room was electric!! It was really fun!
Next on the entertainment agenda is a Halloween Party next Saturday - the costume requirement is still being debated, so if we dress up - we will have pics!
Then - AND I CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS ONE - the return of Reba & Kelly!! Nov. 20th at Schottenstein Arena. They say it is almost the identical show that we have already seen, with a few minor changes, but I still CANNOT WAIT!! I love them both so much! Our seats aren't quite as good as last time, but my camera is better, so hopefully, GOD WILLING, I will get some good pics and maybe, a video to post!!
Until next time!! C-ya!
Oh - and don't forget to Vote - Nov. 4th - Obama/Biden~~

This weekend, we are going on the Tech-Wear Family Camping and Canoe Trip which takes place every Labor Day weekend. This is my 4th year and Kelly's 1st. We are also taking the dogs, which ought to be a treat. Hopefully, they get along well with my brothers' dogs, Gretel and Todd, and more importantly, that Bailey doesn't catch his tail on fire!! It should be fun.
We get back from camping and next is the Fantasy Football Draft! Always a fun time - if you haven't played fantasy football, you should give it a try. It is so much fun and it makes the football season so much more exciting (especially for us Browns fans who usually don't have much to root for!)
Next in line is The Lion King - I have heard great things about this play and am really looking forward to it.
Then, we go back to our younger days and relive the late 80's early 90's when the New Kids on the Block were popular as we are going to see the Reunion Tour in Cleveland on Oct. 3rd. I can't wait! We last saw NKOTB at the Ohio State Fair in 1988 (I think) - it was pouring down rain and we stood on a folding chair which kept sinking in the mud! What memories!! I can't wait to see the concert!
Finally, we will be getting our tickets to see Kelly and Reba when they come to Columbus in November. I am taking my dear old dad who loves Reba and complains every time I go to a Reba concert and don't take him, so this is his year. I hope he enjoys it!!
Well, enough for now. I have got to go. It is night 2 of the Democratic National Convention and Hillary is speaking. Gotta go hear what she has to say!! (even though I already know I am voting for Obama!!) I still wish it was HRC, but I guess he will do. Anything is better than 4 more years of Bush - the sooner he is out of office, the better!!
Y'all take care!!

The next day, July 4th, we, again, joined my family for a cookout at my Mom & Dad's house. I, know, lots of family time, huh??
July 6th - finally Kel's birthday had arrived - and we went to the Old Bag O' Nails Pub in Gahanna. The food was terrific (service not so much as we had 3 glasses of iced tea spilled on us at the start!) We took some photos out back on the balcony and Kel and I ventured down to the water where we saw a mother and her baby ducks swimming along! So cute!! Unfortunately, when I got home, I received the sad news that my Grandma Libby had passed away. She had been ill for quite some time and I am glad she is in a better place now!

This morning, our neighbor called to tell us that we had a baby deer sleeping in our backyard at 8:00 a.m. Obviously, we weren't awake to see it, but from now on, we are going to keep an eye out for it! That would be so exciting since we have never had deer here before!Not much else going on around here. Back to work tomorrow, but at least it is a short, holiday week! It will go fast, too, since we have fireworks to attend Wednesday (Heath) and Thursday (Buckeye Lake) night. I love fireworks, but Kel isn't a big fan. She does enjoy the ones at Buckeye Lake, though. My brothers take us out on their boats so we can watch from the water. They break right above you, at least it seems like it. I absolutely LOVE them!
Everyone have a safe holiday and take care! Until next time....
