Fathers Day 2010

Yesterday, we all went to Old Carolina Barbecue for a lovely lunch with our families. Bruce and I are so blessed to have loving wives and children who honor us not only on Father's Day, but everyday of the year.

Graduation Day Video















Graduation Day Photos

This was right after the graduation ceremony when we ran around the Convocation Center to find Aaron and start our family celebration and congratulations.
As we found him, he was being interviewed by a reporter from the OU Student newspaper on the standard questions, "How does it feel?" I did not hear what he said, but I am sure that he had some clever quips and soundbites.









After, we went to the Ponderosa for lunch and to celebrate
Marietta Friday Night

Ryan, Brian, Elaine, and I traveled to Marietta, Ohio and stayed at the Hampton Inn, in preparation for going to Aaron's Ohio University Graduation tomorrown in Athens. There was a street fair going on in downtown Marietta and the first person we met, was serving free samples of pizza. Turns out, it was the Mayor of Marietta, Moon Mullen. It was a very nice affair, lots of people out, shopping, and the downtown restaurants were very busy.
Next, we ate dinner at the Gun Room Restaurant, part of the Lafayette Hotel. The whole town is very historic and the restaurant was just part of the history motif. The inside was exactly like a turn to the century riverboat, very unusual. The food was very good.
Here is the Ohio River Bridge downtown.

DUI Drysuit Day at Gilboa Quarry

Friday, I went to the Quarry as the DUI Company was there and you could test out drysuits in the hopes of buying. I do want a drysuit, but I want to get a few dives in before we go to Belize. Also, I got the new underwater housing for my Flip Video Camera and wanted to test it out.


This is the DUI Company display. You start at one end and work your way through each station to get you fitted and suited properly.

Here I am just getting in the water to start my second dive.


Here is the boat and motorcycle, I've videod and photod these before, as I said, I was just testing my video equipment. As you can see, I did not have the wide angle lens on, so everything fills the screen like I am way to close.

The water temperature was about 54 degree and I was in about 20 minutes for each dive. My face and head were cold, but the rest of me was warm from the drysuit. There is no way I could have dove with a wetsuit, the water is still too cold. Hopefully, it will warm up soon.
