Just Another Day

                             Just another day coming to an end on Lake Merritt, Texas...

The Fish Just Won't Leave Me Alone

Well, I walked out on the pier to sit and relax a bit, but dad gummit the fish just won't leave me alone!

Nothing To Do

Have you ever noticed how boring it is doing nothing because there is nothing to do and how enjoyable it is  doing nothing when you have plenty to do?

Beautiful Day For Fishing

It was a really nice day for fishing. My brother Steve and his (our) friend Doug Haggar came down for the day. Caught a few fish, had a beautiful sunset and then caught a few more fish.

Doug Haggar and my brother Steve showing off one of the catfish we caught.

Some photos don't need a cation.

It's hard to take a selfie with a catfish slapping you with his tail.

August 27th

August 27th, a day etched into my memory and the memories of my four brothers and our families. Our dad, Don Beck, passed away on August 27, 2002 as a result of cancer.  Our mom, Berylene Beck, passed away on August 27, 2009, also a result of cancer. We love them, we miss them, but they are back together  now and one day we will all be together again, in a house built to hold us all!

Adding Years To Your Life

A doctor told Amber if she would do some cardiovascular exercise along with her diet it would add years to her life. So, she rode a stationary bicycle eight miles in about thirty minutes. After she finished, I asked her how she felt. She said the Doctor was right, after riding the bike just one time, she felt ten years older.

Pure and Simple Souls

In excited silence I listen to their every word. I try to feel the emotional energy that flows from their pure and simple souls. I see the sweetness in their innocent, heartwarming smiles. I bask in the joy of their laughter and their sweet, clear voices, as my old heart swells with pride, and they call me by name, Poppy.
