The above is a new song I wrote:  "Most Of All I See Dreams"

It is all about the journey of the dream, the people you touch and your experiences while trying to achieve your dream.

As you noticed birthdays in our family seem to come in bunches.  John has always been a great son.  Now he is a wonderful husband and Father. We love you John. This month we will celebrate John, Brooke and Robert altogether.  I feel blessed.

Happy Birthday John!

Happy Birthday Brooke

Today is Brooke's 18th birthday.  She has grown into a fine young lady.  Brooke is still in school and loves animals especially horses.  Her brother Austin is with her in the photo below.  How did this happen so quickly?  It is one thing when you own child turns 18 but when your Grandchild turns 18 it is overwhelming.  Happy Birthday Brooke.  We love you!!!

I am taking another family interruption from our road trip to say that Robert had a birthday last week.  He was moving on his birthday.  We went to his empty apartment to assist  him by waiting for some deliveries.  Everyone including Robert is very excited he is moving to Ft. Worth.  He was working in Baton Rouge for a couple of years and his job brought him back home.  We are going to have a multi family birthday celebration over the Thanksgiving holidays because we have several birthdays this month.  Ben, Jane and Jake will be here to also celebrate.  The entire family is looking forward to the Thanksgiving Holidays.

After leaving Monterey Ca. we drove up the beautiful coast of California to San Francisco where we spent the day with our niece.  She had just moved there to attend medical school.  I think she was as happy to see us as we were to see her.  It has been an adjustment for her to move so far from her home in Chicago.  We had lunch in Sausalito just across the Golden Gate Bridge.  On our return to her apartment we took some very steep hills in San Francisco. It was so scary and noticing that I was the only one screaming I asked Denise if it frightened her as well.  She said "yes, but I was busy looking at the street names so I would make sure not to take that route in the future." Bob said "lets do it again!"

While in Monterey we visited the Museum of Art.  I have a couple of photos taken from the two exhibits.  Andrew Schoultz was exhibiting.  You may notice he has many hidden eyes in the photo below.  Portraits of Meiji Japan was also on exhibit.  These exhibits are still on display.
