Bruce Retires...

 Paul Davis giving the employee farewell speech to Bruce
The employees at The Herald Journal all got together and had an open house for our retiring Publisher, Bruce Smith.  Since we could not decide on what to say on the cake... we took a saying from one of the scrapbook pages I had made with the words
"It's not the destination,
It's the Journey"!
Nothing could be more fitting!  Bruce has been the best boss and I know that I am going to miss him very much.  All of the employees signed the pages and gave their well wishes along with the people from the community who came to his open house.

What a fun night... we thought that since the team won... we needed to have a BBQ... so we picked the best night for everyone (most of these guys are in the sports department and work 24 - 7... so there is never a good day to get them all) but we did pretty good! Josh cooked hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill... with only a few getting burned when he thought that Paul was watching them... turns out Paul did not know he was on burger detail and thus the fire began! Baked beans... yum yum salad... chips and for treat time softball rice krispie treats with hand drawn laces (thanks Josh!) and slush complete with an umbrella... oh and we will NEVER forget all of the UN-INVITED guests that made their appearance very well known! A bazillion and I am not exaggerating one bit came for a visit too....  eewwwwoooo.... it was the grossest thing ever... but lets focus on the the good... everyone seems to enjoy themselves and it was great to get to visit with the wives of the players and just have some togetherness!

Jazz Man Josh...

Uncle Larry...

This has been a super busy week... Bruce's (my boss) Retirement dinner... dinner with friends and a visit from my Uncle Larry. I'm glad that Josh was able to be a few minutes late for work so that we could get this cute picture of the 4 of us together... (thanks dad!) I love spending time with my uncle and I am so glad he was able to come for a visit!

Treat Time...

Slush... it has turned out to be Josh and I's favorite summertime treat. It's super easy to make and super refreshing on a hot summer night.  Normally the slush is a pretty yellow color... however.. it's October... everything needs to be Orange! It looks like a pumpkin with the green straw... okay... it's a stretch but still tastes super "D"!

4 cups sugar - (I use 3 cups)
6 cups hot water
1/2 can orange juice concentrate (I like banana-pineapple)
1 - 46 ounce can pineapple juice
5 bananas

Dissolve sugar in hot water... in blender pour 1/2 of the pineapple juice along with half of the bananas - blend. Pour the mixture into the sugar water.  Put the rest of the bananas and concentrate and blend. Pour into the sugar water. Freeze.  Stir several times as it is freezing.  Scoop out like ice cream and pour Sprite over the top.
