But some of them - some of you - may be feeling the stresses of a job loss or the need to find a job, financial needs, a sick family member, an aging parent, trying to sell a home, a grocery store moving into your neighborhood, a loved one serving in Afghanistan or Iraq, wanting a baby, wanting your kids to respect you, wanting to get married, depression, addiction, divorce, dealing with difficult family members, continually having to fix stuff that keeps breaking down, wanting to be closer to your family, trying to graduate (again), losing your company car, breaking your own car doing donuts in a church parking lot, taking a chance on something new, working too much, not living a healthy life, or trying to get a high score on bejeweled blitz!
So for everyone I love and like and admire - I wish you peace.

Most of all we loved spending time with Nana and Papa, where the grandkids drove the golf cart and swam in the rain and hunted for alligators. The four "big" kids enjoyed our nightly peace and quiet thanks to the Masters, who generously allowed us to use their home. All in all, more great memories!

News of late...
The beautiful fall colors have arrived and it is my favorite time of year. We are getting our pumpkins tonight.
My college girlfriend, Joanne and her hubby, JD, are coming to visit tomorrow. I'm excited to see her! We're hoping to head downtown GR for some dinner and catch Borrowed Time at Kale's Corner.
My girlfriend, Marci, is getting married next weekend. She is one of the nicest people I know, so I am very happy for her.
Hunting season is in full swing for the guys, who are planning the firearms deer season annual deer camp. One deer in the freezer so far and a couple ducks.
T-Bird had a great report card - all A's and one B+. Little kids get report cards next week.
No school tomorrow!!! No work tomorrow!!!
No H1N1 flu yet...keeping fingers crossed.
Heading to Florida in November for the first EVER Osto family Thanksgiving. Should be a riot.
I'm missing my family and hoping to see my mom soon.
That's all for now, until I can think of something more interesting to write about. If you have any suggestions, click the comment button and let me know!

This weekend was the youth bow hunting opener and Osto and Bird were able to share Bird's first hunt of the year. Unfortunately, a buck or doe was not to be had, but father/son companionship was the real prize.
They saw 6 doe, a fox, and lots of loud jays. Bird had a nut hatch land on the end of his arrow! Lots of time left for a deer and great memories were made in the process.

This year we decided to photograph our journey and we found some interesting things on the way - which we shot at the beach and then on the way home.
We hope you enjoy our "Last Hurrah of Summer" as much as we did!

This is a video of Tyler's first duck hunt, September 19 in the Saginaw Bay. Tyler was accompanied by his dad and Papa Bob who could not have weapons during this youth-only hunt. Congrats T on your first bird and a great start to your hunting career!

The main issue is one that is dividing my community. If you are local, I'm sure you've read about it or seen it on the local news. Its all about a grocery store that will most likely be built where some little league fields now stand. The main issue for me (and there are lots) is that it is very near my home. This has become such a convoluted issue, because the grocery store is going to build the little league new fields. Sounds like a win-win to most people. The other problem is that the land is not zoned for commercial. Our little community has commercial areas that will be damaged by this, two other grocery stores will be closed leaving those giant shells sitting there empty, and on and on....blah. Don't even get me started on the little league.
