Barry Gets a Green Belt

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.

Some girls do, some girls don't

Some girls don't care if their photo is taken, some girls don't want their photos taken. Obviously this lady did not want her picture taken. Can't understand why!

Butterfly and Assassin Bug

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.

Niece and Sister-in-Law

What do you think these two are thinking about? They appear to be deep in thought about something. Tricia seems to be somewhat puzzled. Wonder just what the heck is going on.

Cornhole Players

They finally let me try my hand at playing cornhole. AB and I played Jason and Kevin. Really, AB played and I tossed the bags back to him. That tactic seemed to work and AB won.
