A Day with Dale and Bonnie

Today was a good day with family - this is a picture of Dale, Bonnie and Dan at lunch. We spent some time on the lake again - only this time in a nice little electric boat that a friend of Dale's was promoting. It was a nice time with family and friends.

This is Dale's house - actually the back of his house - it is a very beautiful home and very comfortable - I told Dale that Dan and I could move into his basement and he would never even know we were there - but I would sure enjoy the 62 inch high def TV (which was very nice to watch some football on today!)

This is the motorcycle that Dan is thinking about buying - it is a good buy and it would fit on the back of the 5th wheel (maybe - we have to double check the weight). Anyway, we'll see. It would sure be more economical to do our running around on instead of always going around in the truck - like I said - we'll see. (This is a small bike and we would not be doing any highway driving on it - it would just be something we could take to the grocery store or run to do some sightseeing.) We will see how it plays out.

Now, I'll just show you some pictures of the family ---------

This is Bonnie - Dan's niece (one of his older sister Betty's daughters)

This is Dale - the baby of Betty's family - he is piloting the boat we were riding in.
Tonight Dale grilled hamburgers on his back deck tonight and then we watched some more football - during halftime we sat out on the deck with a fire in the fire pit and had dessert (well, Dale, Bonnie, and Dan had dessert.) I had a pretty good day with football (but I haven't seen the Vandy score - what was it Crystal????) For all you football fans - I hope that your team won today.
Cindy and Rod come tomorrow, but Bonnie has to leave. I'll have more pictures for you tomorrow.
Have a great Sunday and I'll talk to you tomorrow!


  1. Great pictures!! It's really neat to look for family similarities! Just look at Dad and Dale sitting at the table...UUUMMMMM! Can anyone else tell me what looks the same? Just kidding Dad..Love ya!

  2. Dana - What in the world are you doing up at 4:15 on a Sunday morning?????? Are you nuts!!!Your dad is acting innocent and wondering "what look's the same?" as if we all didn't know! We are looking forward to seeing Cindy and Rod. Talk to you soon! Love to all.

  3. Gators Won - I could not go - N. said it was a win but an ugly game. Hope our next one is successful. Sounds like you are having a great time. I agree with Dana - I see the family similarities. Have fun. C

  4. Carol is showing me your wonderful blog. This is a fun way to see what is happening in your life. Just wanted to say Hi! Betsy Cline

  5. Just wanted to let you know, if you don't know already, the College Football Hall of Fame is also in South Bend. The campus of Notre Dame is the most beautiful I have ever visited. You have to see "Touchdown Jesus". East of South Bend is Shipshewanna. There are two RV parks there. Mary and I have stayed at the southside location twice. Very well run park. If you go, plan to stop at Yoder's, Shipshewanna's Wal-mart.

  6. Yes - if you can go to Shipshewanna for a visit - think you will enjoy. Yoder's is a fun way to spend some shopping/looking time Betsy and I go there each time we head to Indiana. C
