My visit with my good friends Terry and Sandra made my day...Their beautiful 2 year old granddaughter was asleep on their den floor when I arrived and so Terry sat me in his chair and we began to visit...All of a sudden Mia woke up and bleary-eyed came over to me and crawled up in my lap...I guess she thought I was her grandpa...It was so sweet...so I asked Terry ( who is a fine photographer himself) to take our picture (with my cell phone)...which he did...Finally Mia woke up to realize she was in the arms of a complete stranger...She did not cry but let Terry know she wanted to be in his arms...So I took a few more shots of her with him and then in her Grandmother's arms...Terry and Sandra do not live far from me and the home sits on a hill with live oats lining their driveway...What a wonderful visit we had...Mia made my day!

|My friend Phil..Some folks think he's my son...Believe that?|
Saturday afternoon is snooker time...My friends who I have played with over the years love to meet and play snooker every Saturday...Snooker is more of an English billiard game say than 8- ball...It's played on a larger table with smaller balls an pockets...
|Rick is in his 70's...No fooling!|
|Harry plays a mean game...REALLY!|
|Mark...We affectionately call Mooky...He'll snooker you in a heart beat....|
