A collection of distilled sarcastic wisdom, numerous photographs, discussions of books and stuff to learn and more stuff to think about from a retired economics professor turned blogger and photographer.
Daughters Kim and Carolyn, and Carolyn's granddaughters Sadie and Elise. The occasion was a baby shower for granddaughter Michelle who married a Utah Ute and avowed that her baby would never wear Utah red. Oh boy. Send in the marriage counselor. Make sure he or she is not a Ute. Michelle received more loot for one little baby than we ever had for all of our five kids combined. We had to use my wife Velna's coat for a blanket for oldest son Russell after she came home from working part time on the Montana State U campus while I was laboring for my master's degree in agricultural economics.
Our daughter Carolyn came from Texas to play with Sadie and Elise for awhile since Daddy is assistant coach of the BYU women's basketball team and Daddy and Mom and little Camille are off in Spain while the women's team is playing basketball.
I hope you are having a bright and cheerful Sunday. A little breeze, a bright sun, and a slight haze over the Wasatch Mountains. So here we are starting another Sunday. For many, it will be a day of church. I can't go to church because of my recent mobility issues, but also because the loud speaker system is abominable and blasts the sound a thousand decibels louder through my expensive hearing aids, thus running me for cover out of the chapel and into the foyer. Television has been rotten the past two weeks since it is the (necessary) begathon time to keep PBS going another year so we have something decent to watch. Thanks to all who contribute so we can all enjoy watching. So count your blessings, be kind to everyone you see, smile at someone who seems down, and make the best of a bright and shiny Sunday. Love, from the Curmudgeonly Professor
