Back in Action

I checked in here on Tuesday, but it sure seems like longer than that. I have not checked our traffic numbers, but I am sure that millions of you have been coming here every day to see if we have had anything worthwhile to see. We are back in Action.

Today was/is a travel day. We are making our way back to civilization and "should" arrive at the Lazy OD Ranch by 8:00 or so Tuesday morning by God's grace. We are currently in the airport in Seattle and we are scheduled to take the overnight flight to Cincinnati. 

This picture was taken Monday in an underground terminal on the Seattle Light Rail system.

We have had a wonderfully relaxing time the last several days. It really has been awesome. I am sure that Odie will have a few pictures to post later on. She may be a little sparse on pictures, but I will let her tell you all about that.

We are meeting a man at the house Tuesday morning to finish a project. He is bringing the window treatments and Odie is excited about that. I will try to get pictures.

This post will have to do for both Monday and Tuesday. I will try to be in full swing posting by Wednesday.

Thanks for checking in today.

Alive And Well!

We are alive and well! 

We had a great day in Anchorage, Alaska Monday. We were hosted by Bro. James Martin and his family. We enjoyed singing and ministering at the Soup Kitchen and spending time with all of our dear friends. It was a super duper day.

We are off to other great adventures today, but while we had a bit of phone signal in Homer, Alaska, I wanted to bring you up to date. Thank you for checking in.

Almost Indoor Fellowshipmeeting 2018

Hey Friends,

Happy Saturday, this is Odie reporting in from vacation. I hope you are doing well. 

Summer is speeding by once again. It is hard to believe that it is almost campmeeting time again at Dryden Road Pentecostal Church. I wanted to remind you to make your plans to attend the meeting this year. We love to have our friends visit us at our home church. 

Indoor is always incredible every year. We love getting to be home with our Pastor Bro. Bennie Sutherland and our church family at Dryden Road. It is a great chance to recharge our spiritual batteries. We get to have great food and awesome fellowship too. 

I found this information on the Dryden Road Pentecostal Church website about the 2018 meeting. You can click here for more information. 

It all happens on August 21-24 2018 and the first service is at 7pm Tuesday. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday services are at 10am, 6pm, and 7pm. Reverend Dwain Galiher is the Main speaker in the morning service. Reverend Bill Parks is preaching the evening services. Then 6pm service is a youth service. 

So mark your calendars and plan to attend Indoor 2018. I hope to see you there. Thanks for stopping by to visit us today.

A Big Meal For Odie!

I have a picture for you that I have been wanting to post all week long. Odie text us last Friday night with big news. She had just cooked her first meal in her house all on her own.

We have eaten many, many meals in Odie's home while under construction and a few meals brought in from Acapulco since the house has been completed. But this is the first meal that Odie prepared in her home by herself for herself.

Are you ready? It is a very balanced meal. I see dairy, grains, meat, and of course the great balancer, carbonation!

So there is Odie's first cooked meal. Two different kinds of cheese, pretzel crackers, hot dogs and some mayonnaise as a dipping sauce! Way to go, Odie!

I knew you all would love that.

2018 Boggs Family Reunion Pictures

I was having such a good time visiting with family that I completely dropped the ball on taking pictures of the Boggs Family reunion. Odie was not with us or I would cast all the blame on her. Thankfully my sister did take a few pictures.

A cousin named Brenda Boggs Haney sent me some pictures too. Without those pictures this post would be slim pickings for sure. Brenda's Grandpa Lafayette Boggs was a brother to my Great Grandpa Albert Boggs.

For many years the Boggs reunion was the second Sunday in August. It was always important to my Grandpa and Grandma Boggs and we always enjoyed going when we could. Grandpa Martin Boggs has been gone 25 years and Grandma Boggs has been gone 21. In fact, most of their generation is gone from the Boggs family. It is a different crowd now, but it is family and we need to know them.

Now the reunion is the second Saturday in July. We like to go down a day or two before and play music, sing and visit with some of the family in the campground. We were not able to do that this year, but I am glad we got to go.

Thank you for tuning in today.


I am going to put names on some of these pictures from my cousin Brenda Haney.

Vintage View Vednesday Boggs Reunion 2009

Since the Boggs reunion at Carter Caves State Park was this past Saturday I thought it would be nice to see some pictures from the reunion in 2009 for our Vintage View Vednesday.

We do not always get to go to the reunion, but when we go, we always enjoy it a great big bunch. This particular year, 2009, it was very, very hot. We ended up going down to the creek and sitting our chairs right down in the water one afternoon trying to cool off.

It helps that there is a cave nearby the creek and we get some cool air from that too!

Dad went to KFC and picked up a 50 piece bucket and we ate the chicken right there in the creek. I think it was the best chicken I ever ate!

It was also one of my favorite times with my family.

One of the pictures from that day is also a favorite of mine that I have posted here several times. It is a great picture of my Dad sitting in the creek..

It was a super weekend and here are a few pictures to prove it.

Thank you for joining us today.
