Samantha takes a fine selfie, huh? This photo is in the dark of the deck, because we - James and I - were being treated to supper out. James and Samantha picked me up from work, stopped by McDonald's and Samantha got supper for the little ladies and JMichael; we delivered it, then she took us out to eat. We went to the Fish Whistle, a local bar and seafood place, and we had a fantastic dinner. Good food, great company and cheesecake.
The tradition comes from the principle of the First Check. Samantha has been working for a while now, but, the rule is that when you get a new job, you take the family out to eat. Samantha just decided tonight is the night and it was a wonderful surprise.

Mom and I have always enjoyed a good craft. I thought we might try to make some money at it, so I approached a local shop owner about carrying us in her store. And you know what? She said yes. So here we are - JB Items, also known on Etsy as PersonalBlocks.
These are a few of our offerings. In our first month, we broke even (on rent to the generous shop keep), paid for supplies and bought a tank of gas. Not quite killing it, but, it's a good start!
What do y'all think?

The September Splash was a re-creation of a picture from the fall of 2012 - just laying in the leaves. In a few short years their faces have changed; their smiles are still genuine. I just love them.

I have no idea, Josephine. But, I do know that you should never stop asking questions.
