Sue and I rented a cabin on Lake Greenleaf near Muskogee and relaxed between Christmas and New Year. We built a fire in the fireplace, took walks and naps and enjoyed ourselves. It snowed a little, just enough to make us appreciate the fireplace.
The first baby to be baptized at our church was named Hope. When our priest raised her up to introduce her to the congregation she was back lit by the sanctuary window. I made an enlargement of this picture and our priest put it near the entrance to the sanctuary with the caption, "Raising Up Hope." It seemed very suitable for a young and growing congregation.
I spent a year in Korea when I was in the Army and fell in love with Korean food. Lucky for me Tulsa has 2 nice Korean restaurants. This is Bi-bim-bap, a selection of shredded meat and vegetables over rice served sizzling in a iron hot pot. Add a little soy and hot sauce, stir it all together and serve it with an array of traditional side dishes. This is Gooood!
We had a fish dinner at Fish Daddies that was so good I had to get up close and take its picture. This is pan fried cod with a nice cheesy white sauce, hot beans on one side and mixed slaw on the other. Mmm-mm-good.
Here is my granddaughter Wren and her new best friend Gus the pitbull pup. Luke, Cara, and Wren came over to church with us and brought Gus who we is new to the family. He is a mellow little guy. Wren is a little girl and Gus is a little pup so this should qualify as a macro, sort of. I couldn't resist.
