I wanted to thank you all for your kind words of encouragement over the last few days. They have meant a lot. I hope you don't mind if I take a day or two here to reminisce about my dad, and then on Sunday we get going again on the old pictures.
This is one of my favorite pictures from my childhood. When I was growing up, we would spend every summer on the River. We had a little airstream trailer, and we would move the trailer to the South Concho River, and spend the entire summer camping out. Much of the summer was spent as shown in this picture, floating down the river on an inner tube with my dad, brother and my dog. It was a great way to grow up. Mrs. PJM and I have carried on the tradition as best we could. Ever since our daughter was born, some 20 years ago, we have spent every vacation on this very spot. During our vacations there, my mom and dad, brother and other family members would come down and see us every day. Many great memories.
