Summer 2011

I thought I'd post an update just to let folks know I'm still around. I've been busy and haven't taken the time to update the site in awhile. Dixie Leigh is 19 months old now and we stay busy chasing her around the house and listening to her talk non-stop. Everything is going good and I'm staying busy with my business, Benchmark Computer & Tech Support. If you have any computer problems or need help or advice purchasing a new computer, feel free to give me a call at the number at the top of my Benchmark website. (Just click the link above)

Everything is going good in Appleby but the drought we are in is really taking a toll on everything green...or everything that is supposed to be green. The whole state is in a dire situation and there is no relief expected soon. We occasionally get that rare and unexpected storm that builds up and delivers a little moisture but they are scattered and few and far between. The road construction through Appleby finally seems to be about done. The highway crew is gone and another crew is finishing up the ditches, trying in vain to get some grass to grow on the dry dusty shoulders of the road. The City of Appleby recently installed street lights down through city, which has been a really nice improvement! Other than that, all seems pretty quiet here, which is a good thing.

Sort of random but if anyone reading this has, or knows someone who has, any old photos of Appleby, please let me know. I would LOVE to get a copy of them for my website and to preserve for the history of Appleby. I've had no luck in finding any of these photos or old documents over the years.

Not much else happening, I just figured I'd post an update. I hope everyone is having a great summer.

Christmas 2010

It's hard to believe that Christmas has come and gone again! It's been a long time since I posted to my website but I guess chasing around a now 14 month old has kept us pretty busy. It's hard to imagine it's been over a year since Dixie Leigh was born, but time flies and I know it will only fly faster in the years to come. We had a great Christmas and I wish it wasn't over. Dixie Leigh had a great Christmas and I know next year will be even better as she understands Santa more and the real meaning of Christmas. I need to post more recent photos of her but here is a couple family photos we took a few days before Christmas.

I hope you had a very Merry Christmas and I hope you have an excellent New Year.
