And this is the reason ...well part of the reason...
why we haven't been away !
Last year our eldest daughter got married..
(more on that when its closer to the anniversay date)
...our youngest graduated a month before!
And smack dab in between.....this magnificent beast became very very sick
....then three months later he got very very hurt....
He is recovering (more on this another time )...
As you can see in these pics....
(with our youngest...his owner!
taken by Megan Edelman)
he..."FRED"..is looking amazingly well!
So well that we took 5 days off!
.and went to the lake!
