A great big “thanks” to you for stopping by to look over my blog site. I want everyone to enjoy the experience as I provide laughs, Boomer information, political thought, God stuff, and cool things that I find everyday as I do my research on the Internet. I hope many of you make the decision to come here often.
My wife Kathy and I are both Baby Boomers born here in Omaha, Nebraska. We have been able to do a fair amount of traveling over the years and we are always happy to get back home to the big “O”. We are both graduates of Creighton University which is located just on the edge of Downtown Omaha.
I started this blog site back in April of 2011 and I have to tell you that this has been a lot of fun for me. I enjoy doing the research to find funny cartoons, funny photos, funny videos, and important info for all of us Baby Boomers. I am always on the lookout for health items that will benefit us. I am also pretty traditional about life and consider myself to be very conservative. I know that many of you out there are more liberal in your approach but I cannot please both groups at the same time. So, I have to write about what’s in my heart and on my mind and let the chips fall where they may.
My wife Kathy has been an elementary school teacher for many years. The school year (2013 – 2014) was her last. She is retired now and spends time with our grandchildren, our sons, and our daughters-in-law. She also takes more time to goof around with her friends… and me.
We are the proud parents of four sons: Chris, Mark, Philip, and Michael. We are also the proud in-laws of three beautiful ladies that are married to three of our sons. Jo is married to Chris. Deb is married to Mark. And Nicole is married to Philip. Our youngest son, Michael, is still a free man.
And now, we have four grandchildren. Declan Michael was born to Philip and Nicole in July of 2013 and two weeks later Sofia Rose was born to Mark and Deb. In March of 2015 Nicole and Philip had Stella Deming. Two months later, May of 2015, Deb and Mark had their second daughter and named her Samantha Hope. Needless to say, Kathy and I are thrilled with these little people that just came into our lives.
Chris and Jo, Philip and Nicole and Declan Michael and Stella Deming, along with Michael all live here in Omaha. Mark, Deb, Sofia Rose, and Samantha Hope live in Chicago which is about a seven hour trip from Omaha. They make it to Omaha usually a few times a year and we get up to Chicago several times a year as well.
Fortunately for Kathy and me, we have a very close family and everyone gets along well. We all get together on a regular basis and we never have any fist fights break out (at least none that I can see). We have done a lot of babysitting for our grandchildren and we want to do a lot more. This “grandparent” thing has been pretty neat!
We very much enjoy Friday nights because this has been our “date night” since before we were married. We typically go to a movie and then out for dinner. On some date nights we meet another couple that we have been close to since college days and the four of us do the same routine… a movie and dinner. It’s a tradition the four of us have participated in for almost 50 years and we never get tired of it. And we never get tired of each other. It’s a great friendship that Kathy and I treasure (none of us have ever had a fist fight either).
I will keep you updated on what is happening in our family as time goes along. I hope all is well for all of you visitors and regular readers of this blog.
