Where have I been???

I was looking at some pictures the other day and thought to myself, I will post these on my blog. Shit!!! I got a blog that has been totally ignored, what was I thinking? So that being said, I have to go back gathering my thoughts to get caught up. Yes the last six months have been pretty busy. Hang on for updates.

Pickin and Drivin

Getting all our ducks in a row for a trip to Idaho, really looking forward to seeing everyone and having a little R&R. But first we have Blooms and Butterfly's at the fort on the 18th, Jody is participating in her first 5K Run (She's going to do Great!) and I am playing at the Open Pit BBQ. Going to be a big crowd and good food $10 a plate and all the money is for restoration of the fort. Then on Monday the 2oth we hop in the car and drive to the land of ID to hang with Mel and family then spend a little time with Rita and Matt and of course we will see the rest of you along the way. Friday evening starts the gathering of Emmett High School Class of 71 with a get together at Roe-Ann at 6pm, a little later I will be playing a two hour show at the Toadstool Billiard Cafe music starts at 9pm. Saturday morning the class will assemble for coffee/danish and a walk at the Island Sports Complex, all of us O.F.'s need to stay in shape, my shape is potato. Saturday evening the class will have their dinner and entertainment, I will be part of that show too at the Old High School. On Sunday a picnic in the city park, class picture shoot the breeze, you know the routine. Then on the road again, get home and let the kitties out of the house. Back to the grind as the boss and his family will be on the farm for the their annual 4th of July visit. The camp ground is open for you all to come and hang with us for a while. See you soon.

Pond in the Morning

A view of our pond from the outside security camera, don't know where the geese are but they're not far away. Gearing up for the bosses first visit of the year, lots of mowing and weeding and planting. Jody has planted a ton of new stuff on the island and with the help of Rita we have lilies in several places and they are floating on the surface already. I fished from the dock for about 20 minutes the other day and caught three good sized bass, the smallest was about a pound and a half. Finally going to have some sunny weather starting tomorrow so we will get some weed spraying done and few other tasks that require dry weather. Looking forward to you all coming by to camp and fish and stay a few days, see ya soon.

We The People - On An Even Playing Field

Congressional Reform Act of 2011

1. Term Limits. 12 years only, one of the possible options below..
A. Two Six-year Senate terms

B. Six Two-year House terms

C. One Six-year Senate term and three Two-Year House terms

2. No Tenure / No Pension A Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office.

3. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security. All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people.

4. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.

5. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

6. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.

7. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.

8. All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective 1/1/11.

Congressmen made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career.. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work.
