Today's Sunday, when all the TV networks have their Meet the Press type shows. Perhaps you haven't heard...
Donald Rumsfeld briefed the President this morning. He told Bush that three Brazilian soldiers had been killed in Iraq.
To everyone’s amazement, all the color ran from Bush’s face, then he collapsed onto his desk, head in hands, visibly shaken, almost whimpering.
Finally, he composed himself and asked Rumsfeld, “Just exactly how many is a brazillion?”

view from our front porch to the walking trail.
A view of the entrance to the house (already with bathroom facilities).
Also, see the view from the back porch and garage to our neighbors-to-the-south's garages on the service road. Look carefully & you can see the clock tower between the 2 houses.
Finally, 2 shots of the model house. Be sure to imagine: there will not be 16 steps between the garage and the main floor!
Our's should look very much like the model by December or January.
Stay aboard & watch the progress over the next weeks and months.
The other picture shows all the sunflowers smiling at you. Reminds me of lots of kids all trying to get into the picture.
In the background is the PT Cruiser convertible, this time with its top down. More fun.

- Hervey got married in July & has moved to Atlanta. Jennifer got married this summer, too.
- Linden is the county seat of Perry County. Perry County is notable for having the lowest population per square mile average in the state of Tennessee.
- As of the census of 2000, there were 7,631 people, 3,023 households, and 2,164 families residing in the county. The population density was 7/km² (18/mi²).
- It was sunny today (this could fit sun flowers, see how they've grown in a day; or maybe a sun-enabled 99 degrees).
..we're in the route planning stages for arrival in Tennessee around mid-September '07. Maybe we'll even have a kayak on the roof.But the kayaks are already here! (Photos from last summer)
See the Virginians, Laura & Mark. He's so helpful in getting Laura launched-- and then she just barrels along downstream.
Amy appreciates the help from Dan. No, Rick, Karil wouldn't have to have an outfit to match the kayak's color. And, paddling downstream, notice how they stick together. Well, that was BEFORE their wedding.
Meanwhile, the other Amy has it all figured out-- click to enlarge and see what's in her right hand.
Kids, do these pix bring on some nostalgia? They do for me. It's fun on the river.

The bride's family was spotted in Wisconsin getting "snapped" by an excellent photographer (not me; I was just bootlegging while he did the good work getting everyone to pose).
The littlest ones there are here with their Auntie.
But, it would seem the rabbit in her mouth is not so fortunate. (see earlier post, "Deer Me")
Good news: Just after this picture was taken, the bunny got away and ran into the grove, chased by the cat. The cat returned to the porch; bunniless.
That's not good news- those bunnies ate my beans!
