It's a dreary Monday here in Brownwood, Texas, today! Things here at the library are getting busy because we were closed for Fall break and students have assignments due but could not access the printer until this morning at 7:30am.
Our son, Samuel came in Saturday with four of his friends from UMHB. We had Kimberley, MacKenzie, Mark & Tyler. They had a great time just being away from their campus and we had an amazing time hosting them. They were wonderful guests in our home and always welcome back.

Paula, Samuel, Thomas & I had a wonderful time at the Mary Hardin Baylor vs. Hardin Simmons game this past Saturday, in Belton. This final score was 26 to 0. This game started late due to thunder and lightning. The main thing was the quality time spent as a family. Samuel spent Saturday night with us in our motel room. None of us will forget how we sank into the holes in the middle of our beds. A memory for sure!

Just thought I would share some great photos taken by a good friend of mine, Mr. Odeh Shawrieh!

We had the opportunity to fly to North Carolina this past June. We stayed at the Sea Foam Motel in Nags Head with my two brothers, Ray & Stacey and their wives, Debbie & Kathy. We also were with my sister, Cecilia & her husband, Will. Corey, Danielle & their son Drew were there along with my nephew, Kelly & his girlfriend, Jenna. It was a great time to be sure. I love my family & would like to spend more time with them but distance is the main factor. Paula has always wanted to go to Historic Williamsburg, so this time we finally did it. It was a lot of walking but it was very informative & fun with Celie & Will.
In all it was a good time and so happy that we were able to do it and we did not have that long drive!

A friend of mine sent me this picture, wishing me a Happy Birthday about 2 years ago. For me, I immediately fell in love with it because of all the shades of brown. Brown is my 2nd favorite color, with green being my first. This picture is so inviting to just sit down in the big, comfortable armchair, beside the fireplace and enjoy a great book. Of course for me to really enjoy the book, I must have it completely quiet. Pictures evoke so many words, thoughts and memories. The next time you look at a picture let it speak to you. You never know it just might be what you needed to set the course of your day, in a positive way.

Crazy Rich Asians

Paula & I had a great time, yesterday afternoon watching "Crazy Rich Asians" at the Regal Theater in the Early Mall. Paula said that it would be a good one to purchase. I enjoyed it and would recommend it to all couples.
