Winter again

Posted by Picasa

This was our Level 2 snow emergency. For the first time since I have worked at this doctor's office, they closed. It is beautiful, but shoveling is no fun. I helped a little, but it was way too much for the back. We got close to 8 inches or more with an inch of ice underneath that.

Touchdown Jesus!

This is an actual statue off the interstate from Dayton to Cincinnati. It is magnificent and have often wanted to take a picture of it. So last week, Lauren and I stopped on the side of the road with cars wizzing by and I snapped it. It has appeared on National news before and we call it Touchdown Jesus. Of course he is praising God so I don't want to make light of it. It is incredible!

Melodie is 25!

Melodie turned 25 this past Monday, January 19th. We wanted to celebrate her birthday and have some pictures that were Justin's (that I happen to have) so you all may be able to know a little more about her. She and Justin got to know each other while we lived in Tulsa OK. They traveled to school together by the way of Justin's truck. and so it goes. It wasn't until both graduated from college when the romance began. Melodie herself is quite accomplished. She graduated with a double degree from The Oklahoma University. Well, they usually don't use the The, however being in Ohio State land, I thought it was appropriate. One degree is in Russian. Yes, she speaks Russian and the other is a Bio Chemistry Degree. Melissa says, oh no, wait til the kids come. They will be brains! Well, we will soon find out because she is due to have their 1st baby late this summer. She has a brother by the name of Patrick and Mom, Linda and Dad, James. Linda is a retired teacher and a "Martha Stewart" and James is an engineer. Patrick is now a freshman in engineering at Oklahoma University. Here are a few pics of Melodie and her family. They lived in our neighborhood and was a wonderful help when our house was on the market for 3 years. Patrick mowed our yard and Melodie and her Mom showed our house and kept a watchful eye out for us. Who knew we would soon be a family? Happy Birthday Melodie. Sorry this is so late. It has been a busy couple of weeks for the Ohio Floro family. We love you!

Their so called "date" in the 10th grade. This was called the MORP dance. They never truly dated in high school.Patrick, Linda, James, and Melodie

Wisps of winter

Sounds romantic. Well, I would rather be in sunny Orlando with my husband. Instead, I've been shoveling 5 inches of snow at least from the driveway. Bitter you ask? Well, maybe. Next time, he will be here and I will be in sunny Orlando in 65 degree weather. Anyone want to go with me?

The droplets are snowflakes.

Justin and Melodie's Christmas present to us!

This was a wonderful and most original present we have ever had. Our first grandchild on the way. The question of the day is, what are the paternal grandparents to be called. Notice I have taken comments off because of a bad prior one but feel free to email me your suggestions. Congratulations Justin and Melodie. They will add this little one around the end of August.
