Happy Birthday ...

Well I had a great time this weekend celebrating my eventful birthday. Only happens once in a life time. I still feel like 40. So I must be feeling pretty good.

Curtis, Jessica, grand daughters Kacy & Kodi; Megan, Jarad, grand son Colton; Tonya, grand daughter Haylee plus my wife Susie all gave me a great birthday get together at the house with burgers, hot dogs, chips, pasta, and of course cake.

Now, do I want to retire or keep working??? Yeah, I think I'll keep working for the AEA plus I have the BuiltNetworks computer store to keep me busy.

Kacy's 4th Year Birthday


Had a great time at my grand daughter Kacy's 4th birthday party at Pump It Up in Omaha Saturday with Curtis, Jessica, baby Kodi, Megan, Colton, Susie and Kacy's friends.

The kids got to play on the inflatable slides and other inflatable bouncing structures plus other fun objects. Then we all went into another room to open Kacy's birthday presents and have cake and ice cream. I even slid down the inflatable slide with my grand son Colton. What  a blast!







My Kidney Transplant Anniversary . . August 16, 2013

My daughter Megan called me this morning to remind me it was my 2 year Kidney Transplant Anniversary. Time flys when your back to work feeling great, not having to do dialysis every other day for 3.5 hours and then go home because the procedure wears you out. I am always reminded of the gift of life my deceased donor has given me. Thank you just doesn't seem to be enough to show my appreciation for what I have received. I am back to work full time with the AEA going on 28 years. I also have a computer store I provide sales and repair services for Creston and the surrounding area residents and businesses. I really enjoy my 5 grand kids from ages 2 months to 16 years. Life is GREAT!
