I bet you all thought I have forgotten about you? Sorry I did not, just working all day and when I get home I am sleepy. Our trip to the big town of Pahrump was a restful one, a well needed rest. I had all 3 of my kids together which don't always happen alot. It was nice to visit with my daugther. We caught alot of blue gill and some bass. Us girls went thrift store shopping, not many finds but I did find a coring wear bowl to add to my others and it was only $1.00. I started my new job officially on Monday as a night time janitor. I have been subbing that position out since the women who had it transferred to Pahrump. I am thankful for what the Lord has given to me. I was following his directions. If it was ment to be I would have it and I do. Its hard work most days and I am out of shape. But I feel better now knowing when Summer time comes around, I don't have to worry where are next check is coming from. And to have insurance on top of that, I am really blessed to have God, my family, and my friends with me. Last Saturday I lost a dear friend of Mark and mine. He was a man who gave his heart to anyone, an okie, a fiddle player and a man I thought of as a dad. I will miss you Carl, your in Gods hands now, play your fiddle with my father in law to God! Hope that everyone is great and well. I missed you all. Until next post. Here are some pictures of my family and trip. P.S. Anyone know what kind of bird this is. He would watch us every night fishing?

Those are great pics, Allison! I was hoping you were going to tell us what kind of bird you took a pic of! He's cute. I'm glad things are going well for you and you are trusting God to take care of everything. I think that is the only time we truly have peace. When we try to sort it all out on our own, it just never works.
Have a great week.

Hey sis, congrats again on the job! Love the photos, looks like a oasis in the desert! Sorry to hear about Carl, but like MB said, God needed another fiddle player! That bird looks like he maybe in the King Fisher family?
