We have met a lot of wonderful and interesting people in our journeys. Jim is one of those special friends. Navy pilot shot down in Vietnam, airline pilot, bush pilot, African big game hunter, falconer, log home builder, Texas rancher, father and husband. This photo was taken one afternoon on Nikiski Beach, AK where he was training “Pepper” his newest falcon. Only 2 post to go!
It is never too early to develop the love of the land. Kids think “work” is fun when they are this age. Emily loved helping in her GrandDad’s cabbage patch. Now that she’s a big girl… I pray everyday that she will keep her feet on the ground, her hands close to the soil and her heart on GOD! Only 4 post to go!
Cousins… sometimes they are your best friend.. sometimes they are your first playmates… sometimes they annoy you beyond measure…BUT it’s that bond of family that makes life so special! (These are not my kiddos.)
Every family has a story. Do you know yours? Take a few moments and ask the where and who and why…. the more we know about our history just might give us a better view of our future. I have said it before and I’ll say it again. “Come see us… I’ll take your picture.”
