Happy Father's Day

Kennith Marlow Scoggins 
January 20, 1920 - April 14, 1990

I thought I would take a moment from our travels to write a very brief tribute to my dad on this day. I cannot do it justice in one blog. Just as it took several to pay tribute to Mother on Mother's Day; it will take equally to do justice for Daddy. So for a top ten with stories to follow this week.

1. Daddy loved life. He had fun wherever he was - no matter the situation.
2. He loved his family and was always there.
3. He never met a stranger. He had the gift of gab.
4. He had a great laugh and smile.
5. He liked to be outside. He loved nature.
6. He loved the land and to hunt.
7. He loved to GO - Go anywhere, anytime.
8. He liked to eat.
9. He was "hard headed" and hated storms.
10. He liked brand new red Chevrolet pickups.

God blessed me really well with the parents that I had. They were a great balance to learn life lessons. "Honor thy father and thy mother," was quite easy for me.

O Canada, O Canada

We are having a blast. The weather is perfect, and every view is a Kodak moment. We have been to Vancouver and ferried over to Victoria. We have entertained many Canadians. Our Texas accents is a dead give away that we are tourists; therefore, both young and old are intrigued with us. 

Check Di's blog for more information and pictures.

The Great Comedian

George Marlow Scoggins

This was my grandfather. I do not remember much about him except he was a very old man, that sat in the corner of the room smoking a pipe listening to a radio.I have no recollection of him ever talking. However, this week I heard stories from a cousin, that is 20 years older than me, about Papa. The papa he told about had a sense of humor. Di and I had a hard time believing this this.  He told several stories. One of them was as follows:  At one time an oil well was dug on his property, and then it disappeared. My cousin asked where it went. Papa told him it messed up his Johnson grass crop so he had to get rid of it.

Friday's Fotos

This is Friday, and I did make the deadline for the first time. I thought I would share two of my favorite pictures of the Davis boys from when they were young.

No Sweat, Please!!

We have completed our first week of summer break. It is still hard to realize that school is really out even though I did work two and half days this week. It is on my time schedule now. I did find a way to get a few good meals in, a little fun at Texas Motor Speedway, and doctors' appointments.

I have had another sensor go out on my car and the air conditioner is out in the house right now. I try really hard not to whine too much, because I know there are so many people less fortunate that me on a daily basis. I do have a car for the sensors to go out and a house with an air condition that can break. For some reason God let me live in Small Town, Texas during this time period where we are blessed with many luxuries of life. I am very thankful for this, because I would not have made a very good primitive woman or a woman in some third world country today. I do not like to sweat nor do I like to eat mystery meat. No, Jerry - I do not have your adventurous drive for the unknown countries.

This was a great idea even though I have a hard time getting my pictures on the computer. I am going to take the challenge get some weekly random pictures on the blog. I might can find a few to share. Occasionally, I can snap a picture or two.
Pebble Beach, California 
One of my all time favorite trips with the boys, Diana, and Jenna.

Grand Canyon 2007
Our honeymoon. The moon is rising behind us; as the sun is setting in 
front of us.  It was one of those memorable sunsets.
The tour bus left us out here in the Canyon for 45 minutes
after dark in very cold temperatures.
