“Life is too short to be lived counting the years. Just enjoy the ride and make awesome memories…,” Unknown. Happy Birthday to my dear sweet friend, Laken Housley, Tayler Rachel granddaughter extraordinaire and, my handsome and caring son, Jeffrey Morris. “Birthdays are good for your health.

We are so fortunate to have several locations where we can spend time with friends and family and to celebrate the Fourth of July. On July 4th, 1777, in Philadelphia, thirteen rockets were fired to recognize the independence of the thirteen colonies. This set the trend of having a fireworks display on the 4th of July. Sean and I enjoyed our Independence day celebration with friends and family at the Fairfield Bay marina and fireworks show. “May we think of freedom, not as the right to do as we please, but as the opportunity to do what is right.” Peter Marshall.
