A Son Heard From

Finally got my Father's Day call from first and last son, Joshua West Jackson. Hooray! Just called to say he loves dear ol' dad. Better late than never!

For those who do not have both, please be informed that sons and daughters definitely have different operating systems. LOL.

Josh sounded great -- happy and healthy. Busy with his job at Embassy Hotel. and plugging away with his art work. I know he's happy to be mobile again, thanks to his car deal with his maternal grandfather (thanks, Paw!). Oh, and I guess the new girlfriend may be a factor, too.

Anyway -- what's that? Girlfriend!? Yeah, her name is Brandy White. She works at Embassy, too. They've been dating a month or two, after two or three months of flirting.

No telling what we'll find out when Josh eventually starts blogging!

Well, we forgot to call Adam and Jemimah yesterday. We try to do that every Sunday after church, but Tanya was in Hot Springs Village with her folks and sister, and I forgot. That 7 or 8 hour time difference can be tricky. Hope you guys had a good Sunday in Germany.

Dallas calling ... Judea and her boyfriend-fiance-husband-significant other (they won't clarify the relationship for us) are here packing for their move to Big D. Frank just came in and said they got their apartment in Cedar Hill, Texas. Looks like it might really happen.

Garden sass ... just polished off a DELICIOUS onion, lettuce, and tomato sandwich (an OLT) for a mid-afternoon lunch. Yummy. Thank the Lord for my wonderful deacons, Dick Snell and Bobby Harden, who load us down every gardening season with corn, broccoli, cauliflower, squash, cucumbers, zuchinni, peppers, tomatos, potatos, onions, eggplant. As grandson Miles was heard to say recently, "Um um um um um!" Amen.

I'm in such a good mood, I'll wait 'til later to skin that low-down skunk Wally Hall. That's another story.

Now Wally, he really does stink! Get 'em J4.

Recently my dad moved into a new house and after a few days he got the obligatory sales call from the Demizette. He told the salesman, "I will subscribe to your paper when you fire Wally Hall." The salesman said, "If I had a nickel for every time I have heard that . . ."

haha, good post dad!

Yep it's really happening, and josh did sound really happy didn't he? Who knows! Could have ANOTHER set of in-laws in the making!

Better late than never huh? Guess that is a good thing about having 4 kids- they spread the love out over time and in their own ways : )
