The Weeks are Flying By!!!

Boy he is excited..new XBox came!!!!

Jerry Custer celebrated his birthday this weekend...Jerry & Lois

Scott Sattison is taking care of Joe & Connie's place while they are with Connie's mom...he is also the official dog watcher!!!

Dusty wired and put in new spot for Jim Scanlon's smoker and Bar-b-Que...good job Honey

We are really enjoying having Scott around and poor guy takes so much ribbing from all of us...he likes those Cougar's!!!!
P.S.  You can get some pointer's from Dusty!!!
I can't believe it is already the 12th of July....time is going by so fast and with this being a short summer here at Indian Springs..it is hard to take.  Seems like we come here with so many plans to do this or that and they never get done.  But the time spent with friends is important and we enjoy all of them.  We had the last "informal" Happy Hour last week and go back to our full Happy Hour meals this Wednesday.  Last Friday a large group of us went to the American Legion for their chicken dinner which we all love.  Dylan loves the chicken but isn't crazy about the mashed potato's and green beans but ate most of them when grandma told him too.  Dylan took his birthday money and money he gets from mowing lawns here (but the grass isn't growing because of lack of rain for the last two weeks) and bought himself a XBox 360 with a Kinect.  Now he said he didn't want a Kinect but we had gotten Eric one for Christmas and he loved it, so wanting Dylan to move a little more while doing video games kind of insisted on it.  We haven't gotten to try it out because of lack of room in the trailer and when the Motor-home gets back from having the brakes done will take it over there and try it out.  Last week Best Buy had buy one get one for Kinect games and shame on me for not going to get some.  Had planned on it when we went to get the motor-home but it wasn't ready last week and before I knew it the week was over.
Saturday the 9th was Jerry Custer's third...LOL..67th birthday and he had a nice group turn out.  Lois did a wonderful ham and as usual around here there was plenty of good food.  Who ever made the raspberry pie...OH MY..it was good.  I only had a small bite of Dusty's but wish I would have taken a piece!!  The whole day was spent between Jerry & Lois Custer's and it was a hot one.  Here we went with weeks of rain and then we have two weeks of no rain and hot weather.  It finally rained yesterday and it was a good thing to settle the dust here but I know of 3 people who got damage to their awnings and Shelly Caywood got hit in the head with a piece of awning while her and Sheila were trying to save Mr. Bill's awning and had to be taken by EMS to the hospital.  We hope you are better Shelly.
It was a hot day but the guys all come together at Jim and Linda's

Jim is the Official Supervisor

Jim keeping a close eye on the guys

Yep...they are working hard!

Work in progress

The men did a great job and Jim and Linda are very pleased

Jim cooks a "Thank you" meal on his grill and in his smoker
On Sunday Dusty went down to help with Jim and Linda's new sidewalk and patio for his new smoker ( which he is very proud of) and his Bar-b-Que.  He had a great deal of workers as Jim has not been real well and wasn't able to do the work himself.  That is one way to really see the friendship here come together.  Afterwards they had a cook out for the helpers and Jim made a ham in his smoker and chicken wings and they were delicious...thank You Jim and Linda.  Linda had all three of her children out for the day also and grandchildren and great-granddaughter...so was nice to meet all of her family.  After dinner we all went to Cal & Sandy Stevens for kettle corn and got to meet their new neighbors Liz & Bill...WELCOME.  It was a small crowd for popcorn as it was after 7pm on a Sunday and most people were gone, but Linda wanted her family to experience it and I don't blame here...it is good!!!
Monday brought the storm and welcome rain.  I started a new book and Dusty got new tires on the car.  He also got a Shed-in-the-box and spent the late afternoon putting it up and at 7pm we went up to the Legion with Scott, Jim, Linda, Jerry and Lois.  No winners from our group this week   :(  So that brings us to another week here at Indian Springs!
Haley "Bug" likes grandma's new sidewalk...isn't she a cutie?

Linda's family

It was so hot they decided to cook over propane instead of building a fire for the kettle

Amy and Laura already for the popcorn

And the race is on to fill those bags..and believe me that popcorn is hot

Whoops what is that in the popcorn????????
It looks terrible but is sugar that didn't melt...tasted good but the men decided next time to build the fire the propane just wasn't hot enough

Fred takes a turn at making popcorn...
