  Gary spent his birthday money on a 'new' pool table. I purchased it from a guy who posted it on Craigslist (he's moving out of his bachelor pad and into his girlfriends house).  I got it for $200.  It's a Connelly, 3-piece slate and the price included a set of balls, 3 cues and shorty cue, cue rack, chalk, table brush and plastic table cover.
Here is a picture of it halfway put together.

  As seen in the picture, once you level everything...the legs, base & slates...you fill in the gap between the slates with Durhams Water Putty.
  Stay tuned for the finished product pictures...Coming Soon!!!

  I went over to Jan's house today and installed a ceiling fan for Darlene. Notice 'sad' Darlene with her old light and 'happy' Darlene with her new ceiling fan/light.

  Here's a copy of an email from Mom on June 20, 2012:
 

Hi everyone!
We are having a great time, almost half way across the country already, hard to believe.
Spent last night at a beautiful campground on a hill overlooking where the Indians camped prior to Custer's last battle, beautiful country.
Spent yesterday at the battlefield, was even more interesting the second time there as there were a large number of people dressed like the soldiers and people of the day getting ready for a big re-inactment of the battle next week on the 137 anniversary, very interesting.
Heading for Rapid City, South Dakota area today and Mount Rushmore for a few days.
We now have a few bars on the phones too so that is exciting, didn't have any bars for most of the time last week or so.
Here is Dad at Buffalo Bill Cody's museum in Cody, Wyoming.
Love, Mom

  Boating Log: Entry One
  June 15, 2012 - Lake Stevens, WA: Gary, Yvonne, Scott, Jodi & Jackson
  Evening Wakeboarding & Swimming
  Air Temp: 70° / Water Temp: 68°
  Notes: Gary took the day off from work today to summerize the boat.  Scott wakeboarded (naturally he landed his one and only backflip) & Gary waksurfed with no knee pain. 
While we were out on the South side of the lake, we picked up a 6' x 2" x 8" board with nails sticking out of it. It appeared to be from someone's dock.
The late afternoon/evening boating was cut short as Jodi had to go to the Emergency Room with what turned out to be a TWO kidney stones!  MamaSita!

  Last night Mom & Dad spent the night at Beebe Bridge Campground on the Columbia river where they enjoyed a riverside RV campsite. In case you're wondering, the answer is...Yes, it is one of the nicest campgrounds in Washington state. Woo!!!

  Mom & Dad stopped by this weekend to show off their new 24.5' SunSeeker RV before they head east to meet up with Ben, Diane, Julia & Danny in July.  Woo!
  During their visit, we got Dad's phone fixed, Mom's laptop repaired & backed up, watched Alexis play beach volleyball at Alki Beach and got the RV washed & Armor All'd. Double-Woo!
   
  Here's a picture of them taken literally before they left this morning.
