Congratulations on your new job. I know it has been a long search but I think The Lord has answered your prayers and led you to where you should be. It is great that your friend will be working there with you. Pretty amazing. I wish you both the best and may it be exactly what you're looking for. I have no doubt that you will adjust very quickly to full time work. It didn't take me long. When I received my first full time paycheck, I was adjusted and all was good. Lol. Love you and so happy for you.

     Well, Debbie left town last night and spent the night in Tallahassee. She left this morning with Little Mackenzie and continued on to Pensacola. Beth went out to Pensacola last night. They are all there for Raelynn's 1st birthday. Wish I could be there but just starting my new hours, I wasn't able to get the time off. Debbie sent me pictures and video's. We also did facetime so I could watch the cake and Ice cream live. I think our dogs are enjoying Debbie's side of the bed while she is gone. they aren't used to being able to stretch out. I will be patiently waiting for her return tuesday evening. It is late so will make this short. My love to all the family.

Sorry I haven't written in awhile, but these new hours are hard to get used to as far as my blog goes. I get home at 10pm and visit with Debbie and then off to bed around 11pm. I will have to start trying to blog in the morning before I go to work, so my blogs may be about things that happened the day before, providing I can remember them that long. There really hasn't been anything going on since I started my new hours. I am enjoying the full time job.
     We had a wonderful weekend with our daughter, son-in-law and grandbabies. As usual Debbie and I enjoyed our time with them all. The grandbabies are growing so quickly. We blink and they have grown 2 inches. They came Thursday and left today about 2pm. they arrived home safely around 9:30pm. I always feel much better when I know their travels are finished and uneventful.
     I don't know what's going on but it looks like Roberta and I will be the only ones contributing to the family blog. I hope that is not the case but I haven't seen any of the Carvers on in quite some time. I hope all is well with everyone. Anyway, it is 11pm and need to get to bed. I just want everyone in the family to know I love them very much. Until later.

I have been working the last couple days on trying to get Theresa on here to read our family blogs and considering possibly starting one of her own so she can put in her two cents worth. She has been busy, but I think once she gets on and sees what we are trying to do here, she will be anxious to join us. She has so much she could add as far as her growing up in our home with 2 sisters. Also with little Mackenzie, there is always something going on. I will try to work on Beth next but don't know if that will work as she basically only has a smartphone and that can be a bugger to type on. Will see what I can do. I am also going to try and get Lois on here but that could be difficult as she works so many hours. She doesn't have much time to do anything. Well that is my latest, and I am still waiting Pam. You don't need to find your old blog. That is not a good excuse. It is to easy to start another one. Ask Susan. (hint hint) and CHARLES, get that blog started before your old Uncle has to come to Iowa and put a serious whopping on you. Also to Charles and Pam. Stop the neener neener neeners and get on here and talk to each other. lol  

My love and hugs to you all

Today is the last day I will be having to work weekends. It will be so great to start my new post working Monday through Friday. Weekends off to spend with the love of my life. It has been so long since we have really been able to do anything or go anywhere together. I am so looking forward to having this time with my lawnmower. Just kidding Sweetie. We all know I am talking about my wife, best friend in the whole world, who can get so mad at me and still tell me she loves me when we go to bed at night. Thank you for that sweetie. I know I try your patience quite a bit, but isn't that a husbands job. That is what all my buddies told me. All joking aside, I am so looking forward to our time together.  We too can be like Roberta and Bill and do nothing whenever we want. Oh, we have already been doing that. Hope everyone had a great weekend and getting ready for another grinding week. Well everyone except the 2 senior citizens. My love to all.

What a day. I was told yesterday, while getting technical help on a new router, that my computer had been hacked and someone was taking control of my system. They said they would fix it for 300 bucks. Well I just didn't use any online banking and turned wifi off on the iphone. I went to the Apple store today and they did a deep clean on my computer. erased everything and reinstalled to factory specs. Everything was gone so have been adding everything back on this evening. Thank goodness this blog is kept on blogspot and not my computer. I thought I had lost this for good. Most all my pictures were already backed up on a thumb drive so I think i came out of this ok. the computer is faster. Just like new. I haven't seen any of you on in a couple days so just like nothing ever happened. So I don't know if my computer was really hacked or if someone was just trying to get 300 bucks out of me but anyway, I feel better and more secure now. Until later. Hoping everyone had a great Thursday.

Had a talk with Becky last night and told her what we were doing with the family blog and asked her to join us and she did and went crazy last night. I hope you all will enjoy what she has to share and bring to our family blog. She is very honest and says what's on her mind and that is why I respect her so much. I may not like some of the things she says but I always respect them because they are from the heart. I think she will be able to add so much as far as her and her siblings childhood. So what I'm asking is, if you are not already following Richardson's Clan Chowder, please follow and welcome my baby girl to the family blog. My love to all and good night.
