My son Justin and his girlfriend Jessica Sparks went to Michigan on Friday to get Jessica’s girls, Kameran and Kaydance. They had spent some time with their daddy. They came back on Saturday night.

My dad Peanut has been having some problems with his diabetes. I sure hope he can get it under control soon. He hasn’t been feeling too well.
