How is it to be so cool Carson?
This is the sign on the bathroom door of Lane's dorm.
Looking out of the window of Lane's hall. Good ole Uncle Mikey telling Lane stories about the brief time that he spent on campus...about the girls dorm next door - and how the boys would look into the girl's dorm. Nuff said. You can see Lane smiling!
Lane in the middle of the screen.
Thanks Doug and Laura for hosting us.

I've blogged about him before.
He's my 88 year old Pawpaw.
I am so incredibly thankful that he is my Pawpaw.
A very kind and gentle man.
(Although I've heard a story or 2 about him back in the day being a bit of a rounder.)
Over the last several months I've learned some things about my Pawpaw. I've heard many stories relayed by my Dad about my Pawpaw's military experience. He is a WWII veteran. A veteran who was shot in the back of the head by a German sniper. He wears a plate in the back of his head because of it. He was discharged in the 1940's with 100% disability. One year later without explanation his disability was knocked down to 50%. Over the last 13 or so months my Dad has made it his personal mission to see that my Pawpaw is given what's due him from the last 60 + years. He has run the gamut at the VA and has contacted our State Senators. Progress is being made in the right direction.
He was awarded 8 medals for his military service. One being the Bronze Star with another being the Purple Heart.

Happy Birthday Kode-Man.
Just reach up there and feel those dents in your head and remember that happened 22 years ago today!
We love you, brother!

I'm gonna do better.
Here's a few pics (yeah right- -only a few?) from our last night on va-k.
I learned of this place called The Hangout from a fellow blogger that I've followed for a really long time. I'll tell more about her later, though.
They also had a pretty cool gift shop...these were Carson's shades he bought.
And of course he did.
