Joe's a good guy

Tuesday, July 28, 2009


Joe Rahn is one of those all around nice people. My husband was in the Montana National Guard with him and they've been great friends ever since. They get together for camping and hunting trips, and Joe's been to our home a few times. Guess I'm not the only person who thinks he's a pretty great guy. Watch this:

What the heck happened to July? Oh, yeah, it's summer. Who came up with the phrase "Lazy days of summer?" There is no such thing, at least not right now, at least not around here. Let's see, we had swimming lessons...


Family Reunions.....


Flyin' in the stump jumper...

Note... the sentence above has been changed at the urgent request of my husband. How could I possibly call his airplane a "puddle jumper" as I did in my original post? He set me straight, it's a stump jumper. It's like calling a Harley motorcycle a tricycle. Puddle jumpers have no power, stump jumpers are quite the opposite. My apologies to all owners of Maules and similar stump jumpers.

.....And super special projects that are so amazingly awesome, I wish I could show you right now. I'll be able to share the entire thing later, but for now, this will have to do.

Too many photos to fit on your page? You don't have to crop your photos into a pile of itty bitty squares, or create numerous pages about a single event. This video shows you how to use simple flip up page elements to add more photos and journaling to your scrapbooks. So simple, you'll want to try it!
