I apologize for my lack of activity on the blog. I’ve been having some issues with my editor and now I feel like I’ve got them under control.
Actually I spent 45 minutes writing a blog for today only to lose the entire blog with one click of the mouse. So I’m going to try again.
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday. It was for me one of the best Thanksgivings in memory. It all started when these two great friends from Kansas City, Missouri joined us Wednesday afternoon.
They were on their way to Peoria, Illinois to celebrate Thanksgiving with their Son. They drove seven hours out of their way to come visit with us. Jeanne and Debbie were friends in college and have maintained that friendship over all the years. Terry (her husband) is a great guy
and we get along great.
We took them to dinner at Mario’s Italian Restaurant to give them a taste of one of the local eateries in Dubuque. Terry and I were tired so we retired to our respective beds and the ladies
visited until the wee hours of the night. It was so great to see them.
We celebrated Thanksgiving at Mark and Julia’s new home. Everyone pitched and brought some food and it was a wonderful time. In the image above (from left to right back row) Jeff and Tina Bower (Julia’s parents & her sister) Kelly Bower. Mark and Julia, Ben and Angie.
(seated from left to right) Jeanne, Addie, Joshua, Gabby, Austin, and the old man Upde. We watched a little football, played some cards and just thoroughly enjoyed each other’s company.
I’ve been trying to get into videography It’s like trying to learn how to walk again. There was a time a few years ago where I did a lot of videography mainly for training purposes but made a lot of fun videos as well. Some very complex. But as the old adage goes, you either “use it or lose it.” I have severely lost it. The short video below (less than two minutes in length) is jumpy but it took me 90 minutes to put it together from the raw video. Enjoy.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day and be careful.
