Jack says there is such a thing as a free lunch


Kate writes:

” Jack was the local celebrity today for his picture at “free lunch.” My father is probably choking because his grandson was in this article, Mr. Galaska would be saying “how old do you have to be?” because he would want to go himself, and Nancy would say “is there someone who can bring my kids over there?” We ARE frequent visitors, but believe me it was not the only nutritious meal that was offered to him that day!”

Bat invades Bryce’s room

Brian writes:

“Last night Alayna woke me up around 1am and said she thought there was a bird or something flying around the room. She heard a flapping noise and she thought it might have been Audrey walking around. I thought she was still dreaming so I asked if she was awake. She assured me she was awake and she saw something flying around our room.

We turned on the light and sure enough, there was a bat flying around and around and around our bedroom. It flew down the hallway into the children’s rooms and then flew back and forth and all over the place in a bat-like sort of way.

I got up and closed all the doors to the rooms it wasn’t in and eventually cornered it in Bryce’s room while Bryce was still asleep. It was flying around and around his room so much that Bryce was swatting at in in his sleep. I got Bryce out of the bedroom and then got inside his room with a giant sheet. He eventually went into the closet and then Alayna and I threw the sheet on top of him and we wrapped him up and threw him outside.

I asked Bryce about it in the morning and he didn’t remember anything about the whole incident. He didn’t even remember we waking him up. I’m almost positive the bat came from our basement. We didn’t close the door to the basement last night so that’s how he got upstairs. I had to confess to Alayna that sometime ago I saw a bat in the basement, but I never told her. At least she felt better knowing where it came from.”

Congratulations Owen and Kate!

Owen responded to the Thanksgiving post with a little bit of news:

“I have a new Palmer Clan update. When Kate came home from work the other night I proposed to her and she accepted. She thought we were on our way out to the gym, but I had planned a nice meal and decorated the place with all sorts of Christmas lights. She came in and asked what the occasion was and when she turned around I was down on one knee. We’re really excited about planning the wedding and spending the rest of our lives together and we can’t wait to celebrate with everyone. Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!!”

Ash Wednesday


Don III writes:

“It sure is smoky around here. Ash is falling on us and it’s hard to breathe. Attached is a photo from my office window.
Smoke is coming up from the hills in the distance. (That’s the sun, not fire.) It makes a pretty sunrise, but sure smells bad.”
