Barry Nicholson, Betty's son-in-law, father of Jennie Lane Nicholson and husband of Kristen Nicholson, received his green belt on July 28, 2006. Barry had started Karate lessons several years ago but dropped out. He has recently renewed his efforts and has been steadily progressing. He did not even allow a severed tendon in his foot keep him from continuing working towards his goal.
Here is a photo that I stole from AB's blog (abncarla.blogspot.com). Good Ol' Fox and Little Brother AB are obviously singing some silly song, probably "Let's Do Something Cheap and Superficial", one of their favorites. As you can see, AB puts everything into his singing.
Jade's birthday was July 14 but we missed it because of travels and other things, so, Betty and Kristen decided to have another little birthday get together for her on Sunday, July 23. Here is Jade trying to blow out the trick candles.
While trying to get a photograph of a butterfly feeding on a butterfly plant, I accidently and unknowingly also photographed an assassin bug. I'm not sure if the assassin bug was preparing to attack the butterfly or not. It was not stalking the butterfly, though, because the butterfly had just lit on the plant to feed. The butterfly plant or weed is a milkweed that Monarch butterflies and others like to eat.
Jim and Sylvia Guffey, brother-in-law and sister-in-law (sister first of ex-wife ) came to AB's cook out on July 9, 2006. Sylvia (nick named Sybil and Syb) is one of the sweetest women in the whole wide world.
We met at Symmes Tavern onf the Green and took a bus to Cincinnatti where we boarded the Destiny for a pleasant cruise on the Ohio River. Dinner and drinks were served. Hawaian music played and everyone mixed and mingled and renewed old friendships and made new ones.
