Latest from Oklahoma Panhandle

We have a Granddaughter! Hadley Johannsen came into this world on March 11, 2008. Daughter of Trishis and Dusty, she was 7lbs 7oz. What a cutie.

Also on the news front - Matthew is joining his brother, Patrick, at Northeastern Oklahoma State University next Fall. Rachel made the 2008 - 2009 Cheerleading team. The cows are calving and the grass is greening. What a great time of year!

California Trip

My Mom always loved the Big Sur area and now I know why. Whe took her ashes there and spread them off the cliffs on her birthday this year. What a beautiful place. Leah and Aunt Linda met us and cousin Don & his wife came up from Paso Robles as well. We had a great time hiking and recalling old times. Don, a winemaker for a well known winery, brought up some of his latest creations. We also met up with Karen and Jeff - friends of Renee and toured the Hearst Castle and San Francisco. This was a nice getaway and look forward to a return trip someday.
