Home Office

It is so nice to be working out of my home office again and as you can see the office staff is thrilled that I'm back, lol!

Goodbye California!

Wednesday's return trip home marked the close of the 541 store CVS/Longs projects and my endless travel back and forth to California since May!

Sunday with the dogs!

Last Sunday was spent napping. As you can see McCloud and Jackson had no problem with that, lol!

Ikea Date

Finally home from California for good last week Beth and I spent the day shopping at Ikea and had a date dinner at Figo's in Buckhead!

Lake Mead

We also flew over Las Vegas and Lake Mead.
Lake Mead carries the name of former U.S. Commissioner of Reclamation Elwood C. Mead and has a capacity of 28.6 million acre feet of water. An acre foot is equivalent to one acre of land covered by one foot of water, or the amount of water used by a family of four in a year.

Grand Canyon

My flight home to Atlanta last week afforded me a spectacular view of the Grand Canyon.
No one knows for sure how the canyon was formed but there are some pretty good guesses. The chances are that a number of processes combined to create the views that you see in todays Grand Canyon. The most powerful force to have an impact on the Grand Canyon is erosion, primarily by water (and ice) and second by wind. Other forces that contributed to the Canyon's formation are the course of the Colorado River itself, vulcanism, continental drift and slight variations in the earths orbit which in turn causes variations in seasons and climate.

Sleeping Vendeens!

Evidently there is a favorite sleeping position shared among Petit Basset Griffon Vendeens as both Jackson and McCloud both sleep on their backs, lol!
