A Brief Catch-up

I'm not worthy of being photographed....too grey, too fat...the result of not being seen lately by Jeri on my normal running route. I need to get back in shape.

We are still pastoring a church on the south side of Oklahoma City. I'm still selling Medicare supplements and Advantage plans and life insurance. It's a rainy day today and I just read Jeri's post asking where everyone was.

I think the most satisfying part of my life is my family and although it's not an accomplishment per se, it still is the one thing I'm most proud of in my life.

My dad and I may be about to buy 29 acres worth of land with 1,000 pecan trees on it. It also has a two story log house (a bit small for a family of 6, but a nice place to wait until we can build something bigger or add on. It's going in an auction and I've never done anything like this before. We're trying to figure out the financing. The stinky part is the auctioneer's 10% premium. Booo!

If we buy it, I'll post pictures.

Well, ya'll be good. See you sometime.

What a nice picture of your family. It would be really great to have a log house, I hope you get it.

I hope you can work it out because it sounds fabulous. My phone is out but you can get me on my cell, 405 219-9807 Let it ring because I sometimes misplace it. The kids are beautiful. Tell us their names, Sofia is the only one I know the name of.

In order of birth,
and Ezra!
It was good talking with you today. Thanks for your advice. More young people would succeed if they would heed the advice of their elders. In my opinion.

Thanks for the picture, so nice to see your beautiful family. I hope the land deal works out.

Thank you! As a believer, I'm preparing to move forward, but also willing to accept something else if it isn't meant to be. It's a great way to have peace about a somewhat daunting and exciting prospect.

I'll never forget your kindness to my family and I all those years ago. I hope you're well and happy.

I’m envious that you are so close to Jeri!
Good luck with the land!

I consider myself to be particularly privileged to know her and Ted and to live this close, although we rarely see each other. I tell her every time we talk, "Keep my number handy in case you ever need anything."
I was honored when Jeri asked me to officiate the service honoring her late son's life. It was a beautiful tribute to him, even though the circumstances were devastating for all involved.

Good luck with your bid! Let us know the result!!
comment by greatmartin on Mar 21, 2022 10:51 AM ()
I will! I told Jeri I hoped to be picking her and Ted up in about two or three weeks and taking her on a tour of a pecan orchard!
