riley rocks

Riley was baptized on June 28th. As usual, I have more photos than time lately to post (very busy at work, but this is NOT a complaint!) and I am so, so far behind in posting, so really truly I’ll make a 4th Generation gallery soon ... but here are a few photos I really like. The first was sent to me by Riley’s Grandma Diana—I think this is a terrific picture of Great Papa Jim and Riley:

This one of Great Uncle Scott holding his grandniece Riley is another photo I love—not sure who took it ... Dad maybe? (click to enlarge)

And I love this photo, also from Diana, though it also makes me sad because Mom should be in the photo too—Mom would’ve loved the new babies in the family. She’s present in this photo in my mind’s eye, smiling at Riley, Kris, and Jamie. (click to enlarge)

Ok, here are two more I like. This one is of Great Aunt Kelly and Riley, not sure who took it:

And finally, one more (until I get the gallery up)—here is one of Great Aunt Carolyn and Riley:

And that’s enough for now.

painting begins

Dad is painting his house. Here you see him up on a ladder prepping, with painter Darryl below and brother Scott taking the photo. Dad is a damn stubborn Scot just like his mother was (click to enlarge the photo).

The house is being painted terra cotta and I’m really looking forward to seeing it next month (and photos when it’s done, I hope). I kinda wish we were there now—with Scott and Darryl there, and Kelly and Leo, along with Dad, it would be fun.

it was very, very quiet

Because feathers, when they’re flying, don’t make any noise. Nor do the doggies make noise when they’re making feathers fly (click to enlarge):

It was time to get new pillows anyway. But Ruby and Bingo didn’t know that ... Stanley took this picture so I could see what the puppies did while I was out grocery shopping—he cleaned up the mess before feathers spread throughout the house. It’s bad enough we have huge dust bunnies composed of pet fur without adding feathers to them.
