After a beautiful evening ride to the Pease River, we sat down to a fabulous Mexican inspired meal complete with Ruby Red Grapefruit Margaritas! Their spectacular home is custom built with magnificent Spanish influences: tiles, arched doorways, spacious cathedral ceilings! After a scruptious meal, we ended the evening on their patio under their cedar pergola with a delicious evening breeze from the south! It was AMAZING and PERFECT!

Awards Assembly at the High School
(Notice his eye-rolling!)
THE SENIOR PROM
My School Honored the Graduates of Their Teachers
My parents came to the 2nd grade end-of-the-year class picnic!
Zack could hardly wait to get Lynn (my sister) in the tank! She did a great job and provided a lot of entertainment!!!
She even went crawdad fishing! Zack taught her how to tell if it was a male or female...
When we came up from the tank, I fed the chickens, gathered eggs and discovered a HUGE rat snake behind my feed bin! Of course, the moment Zack heard there was a snake, he sprinted to the chickenhouse, scaled the fence and within a few breaths, he had caught it!
My brother, Matt, enjoyed the Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom experience!
Of course, when Zack was finally able to talk Lynn into holding the snake, it quickly progressed to persuading her to put it around her neck. The eggs that it had apparently been digesting, were instantly spewed from the snake's rectum and the stench of rotten egg encapsulated her! She almost vomitted on command!

TUFF IN THE PLANTER!
Yesterday, when Jake got home, he was carrying a small cat carrying cage...in it was this...
We've raised and rehabbed more coons than I can remember, but it has been a good 2 years since the last one...Zack was overjoyed! He's still too young to go on his own, so Zack will raise him and then either he'll go off on his own (like most do) or we'll relocate him.
