Moving in day

One of the socials I follow posted this – pretty awesome:

Brought my other son to help with moving his brother into college and so glad I did.⁣⁣⁣
⁣He’s carrying a 5X7 rug, 3 curtain rods, tower fan, 3 bags packed with heavy crap, and his own backpack.

Notice how he utilizes the rug (which is anchored behind him through the straps of the backpack) to hang the bags off of.⁣

⁣Brains and Brawn…and a really great brother.⁣⁣⁣


Jonco’s Journal Vol. 7

When we visited every month G’ma Chick-Chick would make a fried chicken dinner, while G’pa, Dad, Mom, Aunt Gail and Dave would do farm chores or ride the 3-wheelers. Dinner always included homemade foods and pies, her delicious canned green beans, and Kraft mac and cheese (especially for me!) Then the adults would play canasta, while G’pa napped on the couch in his jean overalls.

Ashes to Vegas – Happy B-day Jonco

This post is in honor of Dad’s birthday today, he’d have been 75.

Earlier this year, Patco took all 4 grandkids to Las Vegas. Jonco had built up airline miles that needed using. Las Vegas was his favorite destination. So each grand invited their plus one and Patco took one of her Pat friends (she has multiple Pat friends), and off to the ‘city that never sleeps’ they went!

The grands and Pat left a little bit of Jonco around town.

They stayed at the Luxor Hotel
A little bit of Jonco there…

Happy Father’s Day 2023

Hope all you Dads and Grandfathers, and any other people who play a fatherly role in a kid’s life is having a fantastic day today.

I’m missing my dad today. It’s gotten easier, which makes me feel a little ashamed to admit. But as they say, time heals all wounds. I still think of him often and it’s usually all the good stuff.

There is one thing, I realized that I’m thankful for (please don’t come at me – I’m being totally transparent and honest here).. is that I don’t have to try to buy a gift for him. He was SOOOO hard to shop for! He always bought everything he needed. He always bought the new gadgets, and toys, and games, and fun things before any of us knew those things existed!

Which makes me also realize that what he truly wanted from anyone was time spent together. Spending time with dad was always a positive in my life – gives me a happy heart to think of it.

I hope all of you out there are getting what you truly want or need today (and every day). If you’re not – do whatever it’s going to take, to get to that place.

Have a happy heart! – krisgo

Jonco and Gus
