Chris Cravens, Jim Jewett, Bennie Durr, and Clair Sams.
It is awesome being able to chat and be friends with a very friendly, personable conference president.
George cooking the pigs and cow meat.
Talking about our building project.
The grand old, middle and young guys singing. This group is very talented and has the unique capability of singing in 4 part disharmony. They also have the ability to sing in four keys at the same time and still keep the words in sync(mostly). The range of the singing in strength is varied as well from very loud to so very soft. There have been some outrage and accusations by concert goers that some of the group have been lip syncing. The most difficult part the group has said in an interview was trying to sing and keep from bursting forth with merriment. We must assume that the giggles are brought on not from anything but happiness found from the joy of the Lord. Keep watching the local telephone poles for flyer's advertising our next big gig. Admission to our concerts are free if you pay in advance. Be sure to arrive early for standing room only. The concerts always have a time of group participation. You can't go to a concert with out wanting to feel part of the group. Part way through the show a free will offering will be taken for the enhancement of voice modules of the quartet (singing lessons). We encourage all concert goers to take an active part in this group effort. It will benefit everyone!

The little house that was going to cease to be. I convinced the powers to be to let me fix it up to live in. I wanted to put a small addition on the back and we ended up with a 16 foot addition and a cute little house. I put allot of blood, sweat and love into its building and enhancing. Many memories!!
We have left allot of Birthday, Anniversary, and other "gifts" at places we have ministered at. I built Julia flower boxes by the sidewalk I had put in.
The railing and shrubs were an anniversary gift. The shrubs look like they need some TLC. A little Mirracid and some trimming.
While in Zanesville we stopped to see Don and Nancy Newman.
Another stop at Lee and Gladys Johnson. The boys loved this squirrel. Lee had caught this squirrel in a trap buy it got away minus its right arm. Two years later he shot it in hunting season. Neat story!
Close up of the missing arm.
Tom Rodgers building the shelf to hold the tanks.

...be sure you go back home. When you get a haircut get a barber you have known. Ever since you were an iddy biddy baby sitting in the booster chair, Because you might look like Larry Moe or Curly if a stranger cuts your hair!"
- Ray Stevens
I asked for a short haircut I did not have to comb. Julie was not impressed.
