Happy Father's Day !

If you're lucky enough to still have your dad, then let him know you love him!

If you're like me, and he's passed on... tell a story to the family about him... or make a toast in his honor.

Enjoy the day!

We have such talented catneighbors

We have such talented catneighbors... that is cats that come to visit and entertain us, but don't "belong" to us.

Sox will often anounce his arrival with the ringing of the bell... much like the NY Stock Exchange.

Happy Mother's Day!

To all the mothers...and those who give their motherly love to sustain us all. It's the day where we pay homage to the spirit of motherhood knowing that none of us would be here without our mother's care from the first nine months and on.Enjoy your day!Mobile: Gary Overman

Tammy Update

Just a quick update and a thanks to everyone for their prayers, kind thoughts and words.

I took Tammy to Nashville today to get the stitches removed and a new cast set.

Today is the first time I really got to see the severity of her broken leg.


The spiral fracture was amazing. Best way I can describe it is:

a) make a paper letter "O" about 2" in diameter
b) Cut it once
c) spread it into a spiral about 1.5" TALL.
d) Now you have a 3-d profile of the fracture in her shin.

I also got to see the post-surgery x-rays and review them with one of the best orthopedic surgeons in the South. She's got 18 screws and a 14" long plate.

The good news is that while she'll be in a wheelchair for another month, the prognosis is very good.

It's been a crazy 4 months:
1) My mom died.
2) Tammy's mother had a breast removed and is now on chemo.
3) Tammy's dad had to have carotid artery surgery.
4) Tammy broke her leg.
5) I got to do all the cooking and cleaning ( whine... whine...whine...)
6) My aunt ( mom's sister) is on death bed, but we got to see her last time this afternoon on way back from Tammy's appointment.

No sympathy requests here.... Just a reminder:
Whoever coined the phrase " If you have your health, you have everything." was as wise as anybody could be!!!

I'm pitifully slow at sending out thank you notes...

Thanks to all the family ( both Mom and Dad's ) , friends, co-workers, Lions, and especially Tammy, Cassi, and Christina... for being there... and for the food, flowers, company, kind words and prayers during Mom's passing and the holiday season.

What more could one ask for?

What more could would need?

Love to you all,
