It’s November 5th and this year we left the Guy at home (365:309) – Last year we were also at lake Truman for Guy Fawkes night, and we took the Guy along for company. This year we were expecting to be carrying up loads of kids’ luggage to Kansas City, so we left Guy behind. That’s three years now he’s avoided a fiery demise. 11 pictures

Gary and Lanie down by the creek (365:295) – Today we relaxed at Ginger’s parents. I relaxed so much I spent a good part of the afternoon fast asleep sitting on the porch of the guest house. 5 pictures

Family cookout (365:294) – Tonight we’re camping at Ginger’s parents.

I thought I’d cleaned the mirror before taking this picture. Obviously not. Ginger’s not been feeling too well, so I let her sleep and picked up the big kids from school.

This is what results when one accidentally presses the shutter while struggling to get the camera into position (365:261).

Warmth (365:259) – This week it went from a hot 94°F to a chilly 45°F.

Yay! Out of the house and no sign of a wall (same basic pose though). Out and about this morning, with a trip to church and WalMart. We spent a fair bit of the afternoon in the backyard where I fed the mosquitoes while we took pictures.

Gary, Lanie and Ginger (hiding at the back) too (365:248)

I could have gotten a much better picture if I’d got the camera out earlier today. I didn’t. Church this morning was a camp Shawio, followed by burgers and conversation. I enjoyed the informal service and had a great time catching up with people afterwards.

Working late (365:227) – Lots to do and I’m not getting a lot of sleep.
