Enya's Music


<iframe src="http://us.video.aol.com/player/launcher?refId=video:asset:pmms:1115256&autoplay=0&ar=us_en_video_408x406_snag" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" width="408" height="408"></iframe>

I love Enya's music.  She seems to have the spirit that I love so much in Celtic music. 

Landscaping in the Fall

How formal that title sounds when what I will be talking about is how my back hurts after lifting one hundred landscape  blocks and putting some of them into position down underneath the deck on the house. 

You can be sure this was Sue's idea.  What's worse is the it is another good one.  Myself, I probably would have just mowed the grass.   Anyway, she is right about laying landscape blocks being a quick and somewhat fun process. 

It also gives me a chance to use some of the tools I got at different garage sales.  I used the tamper, several shovels and, of course, the laser level.  Looks like it will turn out.

On another note, Ryan McRoy went home yesterday.  This place will be duller without him.  Ryan is my sister  Linda's son.  It was great to spend the time with him.

Ghosts and Legends Tour in Bay City, Michigan

Had a great tour today in Bay City. I did the Ghosts and Legends tour for 25 people. It was well received and lots of fun to do. We go to Pine Ridge Cemetery.  Since James Birney, the Liberty Party candidate for President in 1840, has children buried there, it is easy to tie his family into the story.

Friday October 26

This looks like a very busy day. I need to take the tractor and wagon to Gary Riness's to get a round bale of hay for the horse and goat.  Bills are due and Sue wants some plants of unknown name to be placed in the berm.  Dave Deland is having a garage sale and I want to see him. 

Uncle John Engels is just back from St. Mary's hospital where they were trying to cure the infection he got as a result of the operation on his kidney and adrenal gland for cancer.  I wish him well. 

Tonight, Clayton and Gloria Burley are celebrating their birthdays at Captain Hooks, the former Blue Dolphin, in Frankenmuth.  Sue and I are going with Sue's mom, John and Nancy Welch.  This is a busy day.

North American Union

I have several different blogs that I try to keep up on now. One is about the proposed North American Union. http://northamericanunion-sayhithere.blogspot.com/ This is an interesting topic for everyone on the continent. Most are unaware of it however.  I have a good deal of information available on the site.

My daughter, Katy's' Wedding and the month of September

Katy's wedding was the highlight of the month of September.  It was in Humbolt Park in Chicago on a beautiful saturday.  The birds in the background were singing and playing in the pond beyond the boat house you see in the background of the picture.  It was great.  About 180 people were there. 

Kate married William Cherne.  Bill's folks come from Milwaukee.  I have not yet had enough time to spend with them.  Bill's dad and I definitely have similiar interests and have had for a long time. 

Tricia, Keith, Fred and Danielle , my other children and their spouses, all contributed to the sucess of this wedding.
