First snow of the year ... January 2019
My great granddaughter Ryleigh
Vera visited us for the Christmas holidays
Vera and I went to the Wichita Wildlife Refuge for a day trip.
Okay, this is several years old. This is my granddaughter Delilah while she was still in pharmacy school. She is now a Doctor of Pharmacy.
Delilah and her husband Jason. They were married October 14, 2018. That was my sister, Sharon's, birthdate.
Todd Scout flying his powered paraglider off the back of my property.
Todd had a very serious flying accident over the Christmas holidays when he flew into a zip line and will be incapacitated for months.
Tanya had to give me a hand pulling my mower out of a ravine.
There will be more pictures of Sadie. Ha! She is very photogenic.
Short video of a couple of rides on my electric unicycle.
In Washington DC
Beauty and the Beast
Matt's travel trailer.
Spring has sprung when the Redbuds bloom. This is out the dining window.
Tanya spent many hours appliquéing and embroidering this beautiful Christmas blanket.
This is another quilt she finished and will enter into the Oklahoma State Fair this year.
This image and the next was a practice quilt she did for a coworker.
I just wish we had a better image of this quilt she made for my birthday. It is just beautiful but the photos do it no justice.
My fashion sense is lacking.
Grandpa and Atticus. This is Jess and James' son.
These next images are on our trip to Washington DC.
Vera and I spent one night touring the national monuments on electric scooters. This prompted me to buy an electric unicycle.
Two beauties ... Vera and Tanya
Matt and some shrunken up old guy
Tanya was a lawyer in Russia. When she saw the Supreme Court building and the Capitol building, across the street, she nearly started crying.
James receiving his Masters Degree from Johns Hopkins University in Washington DC. He was promoted to Navy Commander the day before. This was all a very special time for all of us.
James and his mom, Joan.
Jess, Atticus, and James
Any veteran will know the significance of the "scrambled eggs" on an officers cover.
Joan, Senator James Lankford, and Tanya as we were all leaving Washington DC

This was a bumper year for dewberries.
Dewberries always come on at the beginning of June. It is always very hot, humid, and we have to cover up and put stuff on for mosquitos and chiggers. They grow wild along the edge of the woods.
Brother and me being photo bombed by our oldest sister, Jacqueline about forty years ago.
You would call this, "NOT aging gracefully".
The young man on the left is my friend, Joshua. He won $13,000 this night. I did not take this photo.
My granddaughter Erica
The blue quilt in the background took a blue ribbon at the State Fair of Oklahoma.
The gray blanket in the background is another blue ribbon project at the State Fair of Oklahoma.
I bought this truck in September.
Vera and I were back in Washington DC in November to see my latest newborn Granddaughter, Ruth.
Trying to tuck the new truck in the garage with an approaching hail storm. The truck didn't fit and the storm never materialized.
Dad, I've heard that story a hundred times before.
My drinking buddy (coffee that is) John and his wife Oy.
My old coworkers. We all retired within years of each other. Leon, in the blue shirt, sadly died a day or two after this photo.
This is a screen shot of a FaceTime call with my friend of forty years, Terry Love. He lives in Atlanta now.
Sadie riding with me on my electric unicycle.
Coffee with friends outside the dining window.
James with the latest addition to his family, Ruth Curie.
James, Atticus, and Ruth
Having lunch with Vera
This really makes me smile. Vera is an architect in New York City.
I grabbed this from Facebook. It is Perry and Laura bringing in 2020.
Grandpa, Vera, James, Atticus, and Ruth
A short trip up my driveway on my electric unicycle.
One day, last spring, a pig showed up at my feet. The joys of living in the country.
I posted this at Christmas last year.
Four generations. Matthew, Ryleigh, Grandpa, Matt
The rest of these are just fun things.
Me, in my old sailor days.
