Granddaughter In State Girls' Golf Tournamant

Laura Phillips holding the trophy that she and team mates won.

I'm so proud of my granddaughter, Laura's, accomplishments.  She got interested in playing golf at an early age and her Dad, would take her to the golf course to hit balls. Now, look at her!  On her way to maybe becoming a pro one day!  

Laura attends St. Aloysius and finished strong this past Monday at the MHSA state girls' golf tournament at Canton County Club.  

St. Al is second in the Class I tournament with a team score of 200, just four strokes off the pace of tournament-leading St Patrick.  Laura Phillips led the Lady Flashes with a 96. Anna Fletcher shot a 104 and Beth Newman carded a 108 for St. Al.  

Marian and I are so proud of Laura and wish her the very best in playing golf.

Happy Birthday Daughter!

My daughter, Karen's birthday is today and I want to wish her a very happy one!  The picture above was taken back in September 2009 when she came to visit Marian and I.  It's a possibility that we may be heading out to see her next month in Santa Fe, NM, and meet new members of our family that have come into this world in the last 3 years we were there.  Wishing her a very "special" birthday today and hope to see her real soon.  I love you!  Dad

I have been on a roll here lately with my paintings.  The reason why I've painted more of the deer is because I sold more of these at the flea market that we had here recently in Vicksburg.
