Damn!! July already?!

Sue, Ali, Joel and me

The beautiful Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Co

Jason Hawes, Sue, me, Ali and Grant. Sue and Ali bid $$$ for this cool picture taken by Adam Christian Blai. Cool, huh?!

The 3 of us with John Zaffis, one of the nation's leading demonologists. What a great guy he is!

I can't believe how time flies!

The Stanley Hotel trip: March 29th thru April 1, 2007 What a great time we had! It was Ali's very first plane trip. (She's 60!) When she got off the plane, she exclaimed, "This is what I was worried about all these years?! It's scarier driving in a car!" So much happened in the 3 short days we spent there. We got to hang out with some pretty cool people and we even made a new friend, Joel. Joel is a paranormal researcher from Colorado. Hopefully he'll be able to meet us in KY next spring for our anticipated investigation of The Waverly Hills Sanitorium. One of the most interesting (and upsetting) presentations was given by Adam Christian Blai, an exorcist who is sanctioned by the Roman Catholic Church. He really gave us (paranormal researchers) alot to think about. It was alot to digest. Many people left that presentation in tears, Ali and I included. We also went on the ghst hunt in The Stanley Hotel. What a great time we had! We investigated from 9pm until 2 in the morning! We were DEAD (pun intended!) tired. The food at The Stanley was fantastic! We ate like Queens! All in all we had a wonderful time and we hope to return in the future to do some more investigating.

Life in general: Becky graduated high school on June 21st, 2007...her 18th birthday! We had a big party for her that weekend. Her plans are to attend a local county college for a couple of years, so that she figure out what she'd like to do with her life.

My parent's are getting married next weekend, the 14th of July! There will be about 58 people at the wedding, which will be at one of our favorite restaurants. I'm thinking that I should prepare a toast of some sorts, huh? What doyou say at the wedding of your parents, who have been divorced for 30 years?! Anyone?

The kids have been pretty good. Jackie is visiting for the weekend. She hopes to head into a three quarter way house on Monday or Tuesday. She spent 5 months in a halfway house, where she did very well. Seems like she needs some sort of supervision in order to stay clean. So be it.

Well, that's all I have time for right now. Hope everyone is well (if anyone is reading this, that is!) and enjoy the pictures!
