Visit Our Violin Shop & Music Retreat
July through October 2007

Dear Family and Friends,
Welcome to our Internet Journal.  We know, they are often called blogs.  The problem is the word "blog" sounds like a really bad clog.  Therefore, we decided to call it an Internet Journal.  We may start calling it a tjournal for short, but for now it is an Internet Journal.  We intend to give those who visit a brief glimpse into our lives albeit an unrealistically positive glimpse.  Please enjoy reading our stories and viewing our photos, and let us know what you think.  Also, you can visit our Violin Shop and Music Retreat websites by clicking on our family picture at the top left.

You guys make me smile and I miss you all like crazy!  I have got to try your super complex recipe for graham crackers and water.

October 20, 2007 from “Richard Ferguson”


Many think I'm joking about the graham crackers and water, but if you try it you'll find that it is delicious.  It makes for a very quick, very filling snack because the water fulfills the job of the saliva in a fraction of the time.  All you have to do is swallow.

I loved looking at all of your pictures and reading what you're up to. We miss you guys.
Richard -- I love the cocoa and toast recipe, but think I'll pass on the graham cracker and water. LOL! Too funny.

This is so not typical of James.  Whenever I come over he just wants to have a conversation with me.  He talks in Jamesican.  I ask him a question and he gives me full sentence answers.  Like: ^!_#(& @#(*)_+$Y a*_++lar;n&^* $(0.  He and I both understand it and the conversation continues until I quit asking questions.  He loves to sit on my lap, eat and talk.

KaraLyn - This is a great idea.  I love seeing what is going on in your family. I wish we lived closer, our kids would have so much fun together -- not to mention us.
