First, rafting. I went down the Ocoee
with the singles group from my church in early summer. I'm the one
in the lower left about to get really wet :
And then later, I went down the Nantahala (much
easier river) with work. I'm in the single-man raft in the middle
of the picture (once again, getting really wet):
I got to go to the National
Cable Television Association show (for work) where I got a chance to go skiing
and also to interview Bugs Bunny & Michael Jordon:
Okay, how about some great friends from my church. First and foremost, Luanne, a terrific friend . . .
No, this isn't her couch. Its in a room
on St. Simon's Is. where a bunch of us went over Memorial Day:
Susan, Janna, me, and Luanne, also at St. Simon's:
And my favorite of Luanne -- her trying a clam
for the first time. Yum! (I guess not):
I guess I might
as well include a couple of some of us playing softball at Piedmont Park
(here in Atlanta):
Okay, so now that brings us up to the 4th of July. Jason and Wendy had a pool-party, but I don't have pictures of them, but here's some of other people . . .
This is Janna (again) and me:
And here's me, Jason, and Michael. I'm
loading a "tater gun". This is a bizarre, yet fun toy that another
Frank (pictured later) introduced to us. It really shoots potatoes...far...like
100s of feet:
Finally, a picture with Melanie in it!
(I know Steve was waiting.) This is me (obviously), Melanie, and
her friend Brandon that was in Atlanta doing his internship over the summer.
Phew! I'm getting tired of typing. Okay, Steve, here's some more. These are from my birthday party. It wasn't really a party for my birthday. It was for several of us that have July birthdays. I hosted it though. It was a great party (though my neighbors might disagree) . . .
Hey, here's Brandon & Melanie again:
The guy about to walk into the picture is Stuart
(all the women chase him). He's probably pretty trashed by this point.
And for those of you that have met my friend Dawn, that black-haired person
in the forefront is her! See:
Yes, here once beautiful red-blond hair is gone!
Wade is in the lower left corner, Dawn is outside
the patio door, then there's Janna, Frank, Melanie and Beth:
Leslie (in red), Jennifer and Todd:
This is Jill. She must be fairly trashed
here! She got completely trashed on New Year's and
started following Stuart around like an adoring puppy. It was pretty
cute and fairly funny. (Maybe you had to be there.)
Okay, here's the tater-gun Frank. Sheila
is to his left, and yes, that's Luanne laughing on the right:
Michael is Sheila's husband, so I guess this
That was probably after he had a lot of the
"cluster-suck" -- a deliciously intoxicating mixture of lots of alcohol
that tastes like fruit juice. It's pretty obvious how it got named.
Clustered around the watermelon, sucking, starting from lower-left, is
Michael and his wife Sheila, Steve (the cluster-suck creator) and his girlfriend
Amy, Nancy (about all you see is an eyeball) and her husband Todd:
The last "photo event" prior to my trip to
Jamaica was when I went to University of Georgia's homecoming game with
Melanie and a few of here friends:
In December, Melanie and I went to Jamaica for a week.

Ah yes, the holiday season. This part
of my Sunday School class that went to one of the dressier Christmas parties.
I didn't make it to the party, but I met up with them later at a dance
