We are shedding tears of joy and tears of sorrow as Holly and John go on their way to make their own homes. Since John joined us we became a busy family of five, he and Holly are moving out on their own. We will miss Holly and John too….

They found a house in downtown Salem

They could not get an apartment in a complex due to John and Holly not having six months work history for one employer and 2 years rental history. We tried probably 20 complexes, and found them to be rather rude when they heard the kids only had money. After much searching, they met the owner of this complex. He only wanted money, and their history in his mind is just history. He prorated their rent charged them a small deposit, and the kids were all smiles. We are now looking across their new living room. It not much, but it is home.

Uses a gas stove. John at this point had never seen one. We had to show Holly how to light it. He was a bit leery of Gas powered heat. That is OK, as today John went to work for a company that sells maintains, and install stoves. He will soon be an expert.

Their new kitchen, it is a tad small. Our RV looks like the lap of luxury in comparison, but when you young, everything is tolerable.

Well most everything is tolerable. This shower is not quite over the top. In fact its just plain short. – Maybe another apartment is going to to be in the near future.

Well, we are moved in, the girls have pie and are waiting for us in the Bedroom. — Time for a pie break. It’s pumpkin (My Favorite)

We decided it was time to take a day at the park. John showed his new wife and sister in law his big stick. The girls were quite impressed. Based on Biden’s comment about Obama qualification for president. John is totally qualified to be our next president. With any luck, John will have a big stick and be a conservative. These kids are our future

Good news… The neighbor lady got scared of the guy next door and moved out leaving a one bedroom apartment available that is over twice the size of the one they had. — They took this apartment and this is their new view in the living room.

This is the living room. It has the same gas heating appliance as the last place. The other end of the room had a closet, but they wrecked it out a one point and installed a door in the back wall. I went out the door, it did not take me to Narnia. It took me to an indoor stairway that leads outdoors. It smells like fertilizer and cigarettes, but on the upside I found no living creatures in there. Though it looks like a disease trap, I think its sterile. They have a perfectly good out door stairway, so it is no biggie.

This is the dining room with their new family crest that Sarah created for them. The dining room is behind the living room, has three door. One to the right which leads to the bedroom, one to the left that leads to the kitchen, and finally one more to the left that leads to the proverbial can.

View from the kitchen. — Sorry about the light on the roof next door. I usually try not to take pictures of the guys who are taking photos of me. Once in a while, though I catch one. Paparazzi, can’t live with them, can’t live without them.

Party time again! We are headed to Tualatin. Johns not feeling well, something at his work pulled his back muscles. That, if you have not tried it is a pain like non other, and like the gift that keeps giving. Only problem is the gift, is a lot like getting fruit cake of the month / colonoscopy dejour. Take care of your back. John take it easy, so you can again be made whole.

We arrive at the party. The guest of honor Lauren, is sitting by the table. It is her first Birthday. Hardly seems that long ago that we saw her at the hospital after escaping her mother. Speaking of mothers, Vicky on the left with the gift is my little sister and Lauren’s mother. The beautiful woman on the green ottoman is my mother, and the hot babe in blue jeans is my gorgeous wife.

I love Newly weds! It has been too long; I can’t remember what they see behind each others eyes. Of course, they could just be feline and having a staring contest.

Lauren is standing there taking all this in, and perhaps wondering “whats with skyscraper? What will happen if I try to climb it? Not sure if it went so well for the furry guy in that movie the other night.”

My niece Makayla belongs to my sister Marnie. She is 2.5 years old now. We were at her first birthday not long ago.

The TV in the background is weird. Radio comes out the speakers, and the screen acts like an electronic billboard displaying advertisements. Maybe telecommuters don’t see enough billboards these days.

OH’ the cup cake.

My nephew Benjamin. He is a real ladies man. He put John on notice. Sarah and Holly are his girlfriends, and as long as this is understood, there should be no trouble. Dude’s only 5 and he knows who owns this world.

Party is over and Benjamin is chasing women closer to his size. Now we have to work on degrees of relation. Well if that does not work out, there is always Tennessee.

Well our families are praising God cause the leaves on the trees are turning. This is Gods fireworks display and our families know they are soon to be rid of us. The turning leaves warn of the impending rain and snow and for us that is a warning sign that we want to be on the southern side of the pass soon. Sadly, Holly and John are staying behind. Mom and Dad will sorely miss Holly, but we know she has a good man. We will miss our extended family as well. We will miss our friends and family in the northwest.

We put in for the night at a Rogue River State Park just North of Central Point Oregon. If you come here with a 40 footer, stay in loop F, we trimmed quite a few trees with the king dome tonight driving around the other loops. The price though is great at $20
