This is an evolving web page, hopefully fun and informative. If you find mistakes, or wish to add content (or delete same),
or just to say Hi, my email address is at the bottom of most pages. I would love to hear from you.
Thanks to Robin and Trevor who started this on a Father's Day years ago.

As you can see below, we traded "Daisy" for our Alien Green "Groot"
8-10-2016 I still have more pictures from Alaska, but Daisy's needed work and current value lead us to a new vehicle. A new Kia Soul. With 2017 cars coming out and quit a few other reductions, we managed to save quite a few thousand on a new car, with an awesome warrantee. (See below) Also, Merlin has a new cut. (Facial below) Awesome Camera. Thanks Jess and Matt.
7-30-2016 Five months ago we last placed information on this site. Since then I traveled to NY by car and left Merlin with Mary Lou so we could fly to Oregon, Spend time with our daughters Jess (Matt) and Sandy, friends, and relatives then: joined with daughters Sharie (Brad) and Robin in Vancouver to cruise to Alaska. Fortunately things came together and we were cruising to Alaska. We had a grand time with an experience to last a life time. We flew back to North Carolina. When things settled down, I drove to New York to retrieve Merlin and check out home, as we had been gone for three years for medical reasons. I, a heart operation and Dara, still recovering from a hip replacement. Dara was to join me soon by flying to NY. Didn't work out. In a nut shell, Dara went to hospital with Pneumonia. Had all the shots too. Merlin and I returned the following day. After two returns to the ER and 10 day stay in the hospital she was released. We have been home awhile. She is on the mend. We have an arsenal of pills, testers, oxygen tanks, nebulizers, etc. We also have home health care of various types. God only knows how many doctors and nurses and therapists on her monitoring list. Hopefully we will be home in NY before September. That said I have a bunch of new pictures. Don't hold your breath, but I will start with Merlin, time in Oregon, and go from there. But 1st THANK YOU: My Girls, Their Partners, My Cousins at the Pond and their Partners, and Dara's Family here in NC & Oregon. You have made our lives better these past years.
I left Merlin w/ Mary Lou who was happy Sparky removed the Cone. Never saw the Mer bump into so many thimgs.
JANE CELEBRATES BIRTHDAY
SANDY, DANI, AND LUKE VISIT BEFORE WE TRAVEL
DINNER AT ARA'S HOME
PARTY AT MATT AND JESS
2-28-2016 Dara's Aunt Rosemary moved across the street and is settling in. Weather here has been really nice lately, tee-shirt weather, but will soon get cold again. We are still fighting the bug. Had to go out for meds and groceries. Managed a stop at Goodwill. Found some kitchen goodies including bread machine plus nice paper shredder and travel karaoke machine. Had change left over from a $20. Bread is yummy. Karaoke has great sound. Bred is good too.
3-2-2016 Forgot the previous GoodWill Karaoke. "Singing Machine" Not fully working. Tower speakers are great. Both mic inputs are sounding great. Screen lights. Like the other one no CG+G disk with me to check. Cannot continue in that direction although had radio working. Actually bought it for speakers, but could be nice little machine.
2-9-2016 Last night blessed with freezing temps and icy snow. Expecting ice rain today and tomorrow. As you can see, the smarter natives stay home.
The Dollar silver plate Menorah Tree
2-9-2016 Last weekend, we celebrated Dara's Aunt Norma's Life. I brought my camera this time. I managed a few picts. We will miss her very much. She opened her home to us when Dara's parents were ailing. She later followed us to be with her sister and husband for her final days. She was Special.
2-3-2016 For those of you not aware, we have been on the internet, but unable to add or modify this site for eleven months. It is February 3, 2016. Dara is still recovering from her hip surgery. We recently lost her Aunt Norma who she was as close to as I to my Uncle Don. I will fill you in when I can. I will be checking the site from the move as this is the first change I have made in this hosting panel.
Just adding a few Pictures that I took Earlier.
The Steins, Mugs, Shot Glasses, etc. on left will be heading to Man Cave
What a difference a 10$ mirror makes
We did have Christmas
Merlin is back below 80# Sailor below headed for Man Cave as is 9"h.x 7"w. Wine Class
3-6-2015 I sit seeing the sun in the window still residing in North Carolina. The deluge of rain we had yesterday has departed without leaving any of the the multitude of snow predicted by the weather stations. It is in the 20's but hopefully will climb back to the 70's we had a few days ago. It is OK here, but it is not home. It is not the Panhandle either, but it is comfortable, convenient, and affordable. Merlin sits by the fireplace watching a friend pass by outside the windows. Merlin turned 6 the day before yesterday. I hope he has finally stopped growing. He is about 92# and we are going to drop a cup or two of food daily and 1/2 of his snacks.
IF YOU MISS OLDER INFORMATION, IT MAY BE IN ANOTHER TAB ABOVE
