Getting close to Christmas -- Merry Christmas to all my friends and family.

I have continued to ignore this blog - and my New Year Resolution is to post atleast once a week...only time will tell if I stick with it!

Tongue in cheek here -- We just got back from Montana -- fly fishing!! Stayed at the Stone Fly Inn - owned by Dan "Rooster" Leavins...fished at the Big Hole; Beaverhead; and the Jefferson Rivers...had a fab-u-lous time!
...I will post some FISH pictures later this week.

Twin Bridges, MT - great people, great guides (except for one young fella) and great food.

I (might have) pulled in the biggest fish - between Pete and I - Brownies - but it was because of great guides - Willow and Tommy - really genuinely great guides.

Pete and I had a really fabulous time - it's the first time we've been on a trip as empty nesters.

Ryan is doing well at Purdue - has a Fall break, so no classes on Mon and Tue - his roomie went home so he's hanging tight on his own...I (might have) suggested he change his sheets while he has time (but) he's a boy and (maybe) doesn't see the point...hey, he says "Mom, the loft is 7 feet off the floor, it's not that easy!"

He's there...

Yes. he was strong enough to leave home and start his newest journey...we miss him. Paws misses him. It is oddly quiet in our household even though he was a quiet child. He has kept in touch with us and calls often. Oddly, and we are very surprised by this... he is rushing fraternities!

Love you hodge,

Summer has been full of ups and downs - in temperatures and with life.

Praying that my son is healthy enough to go to college in a few weeks. We continue to struggle with an ED. Been working with a team since February and we hope to engage the same sort of team at the college he'll attend. Please pray.

Some time soon I'll be back on this blog - - - I'd call where I'm at 'lost in translation'

Just have not pushed myself to update my own blog, too busy reading other blogs - but I'm about ready to bust back into posting some pictures and news events.
