You might have been itching for an image lately so here’s one. From left to right are: my grandpa, his wife, his brother, my son, and me. We had a fun time together

OK, hopefully that’s better….If not,…

OK, hopefully that’s better….If not, let me know.

Did you notice how both…

Did you notice how both of those sites look just like mine except for the colors? I’m working on fixing that little problem….

Also, you should really check…

Also, you should really check out the web site for my cousin’s band Driven 2 One.

Hey, my sister Amber has…

Hey, my sister Amber has a site you should check out if you know her. It has some of her artwork… amber.the-patricks.org

For those who don’t know…

For those who don’t know yet, a bonus for visiting this site is on the way: We’re having a baby! I guess we can start telling people now. [He?] should be ready to be born for the first time in late March or early April of 2002.

In other news, we went to the fair last night and got to see all the horses, cattle, swine, chickens, pheasants, goats, sheep, etc… Of course G enjoyed it and we did too. G got his hand slightly bitten by a horse, which he didn’t like.

C, G, and I took…

C, G, and I took a ride in an airplane last night. It was a helio-courier which is used for by Jungle Aviation And Radio Service (JAARS) for transporting missionaries around jungles and remote areas. Great fun! G enjoyed it a lot and we got plenty of pictures. The pilot’s name was David and he has been in South America for 20 years and will be in the States starting this year. We’ll post some pics when the time comes…

Wow has it been hot…

Wow has it been hot these last couple of weeks. In the 90s every day. Last night we went swimming with G. He enjoys the water so much. It was a great cool-down. The boy is so filled with energy. He rarely stops.

We walked to the pool and back and had a chance to enjoy the summer evening with the birds and the breeze and the summer evening noises. Life is good.

Tonight we’re going to check out missions at the airport. Over near the prison there’s an air strip so we’re going to see the airplanes. G really loves that (I do to :). Stay tuned…

So far no information about…

So far no information about the war from the guys at usswhitehurst.org, but one of the guys has been really helpful. We watched the movie The Enemy Below which was filmed using the USS Whitehurst and it was a good show. I also was talking to my dad and found out some more stuff that he knew from talking to my grandpa in his last few months here on earth.

I decided to search the…

I decided to search the web last week for the name of my grandpa’s ship in World War 2 and interestingly enough found a whole web site about the USS Whitehurst. Very nice. I’ve been corresponding with a couple of the guys who write for the site and hope to find out more about my grandpa and the war.
