This weekend David, Myself, and four of his friends went back up to the church camp to dig out the old water hydrants and install new freezeproof hydrants sorounded by pea gravel and pavers. The old hydrants would freeze up in early spring after the water was turned on and also made a mud hole. This was David's Eagle project and I am sure glad that is done and over. I am not much of a plumber. I had a hard time with the hydrant next to the pavillion because it had a water line tapped off it that went back to the kitchen. It took David and I an hour to figure out how to plumb it and get it hooked up. Lucky someone had left a few fittings in the well house because I was short a 3/4 tee. We still need to go back up because I told Bother Glenn that we would move all the old rock from around the one hydrant and didn't get it done because it got late. Harvest is winding down, most of the Onions are in, Potatoes are done, and the farmers are harvesting grain corn and suger beets. It sure seems odd not having the smell of the sugar factory any more. We have cut the store hours and only have one more Saturday to work. Hopefully Dawna and I can go camping once or twice before it gets really cold.

Sitting here watching the BSU game on one channel and flipping and watching Missouri on the other channel. Here are some pictures of Shalon at the reunion, and with Chris at the wedding, and Laura up at the lake.
This week was different, Monday I had a Dr. appointment and was told the my constant sore throught was acid reflux, so now I have another pill to take. Thursday I had to take the prep for Fridays procedure and you know it didn't go any better than it did 4 years ago. Fridays procedure checked out okay. I was out of it till about 2 in the afternoon.
Today David and I went up to the church camp to work on his eagle project. He is changing out the water facet to a new freeze proof hydrant surounded by pea gravel so there is not a big mud hole. The wind was really blowing and it was cold, but we dug down and found out what we needed for the size and type of pipe.

I downloaded some pictures from Cameron' s pictures, Here are a couple of Sidney and Shalon from this summer. Shalon had a lot of fun with those drumsticks. David thought it was pretty fun too untill she whopped him good a couple of times.Then the drumsticks went away. Sidney was here in May before Jana and Andrew moved. She was a lot of fun. Also here is a picture of all our family that was a Laura's wedding.

Here are some pictures from last summer, We found Laura's old camera and even though the camera is no good the sd card had these pictures on them. I used to get a lot of fun with the boat but the bouncing on the waves just kills my back. I think most of my fishing in the future will be from the shore.

First, apologies to Lesley, I asked David and He was pretty sure it was Lesley. Here are some pictures over at Terry's a week ago at an Idaho Street Rod event. I had a lot of fun looking and talking to car owners.
Been over to Mom and Dad's last night, Mom is feeling better and said Her chest does not hurt now. Dad is walking better and would do even better if He would walk more. Margie and Doug were over too. We all had a nice visit. Well the Boise State Game is on, Got to go.
