This week's installment of Lonsberry family adventures.
Now this is a good-looking man. Or not. The old man trying to look civilized.
Little Robbie, who starts kindergarten next fall, with a non-compensated commercial endorsement. Maple syrup AND tattoos? This place rocks.
I kid you not, I sent this picture to my wife when she was at a school board meeting. It's little Sam, commenting on dad's abilities as a babysitter.
Little Robbie and blue-eyed Ellie show off their Easter booty while getting photobombed by Scott.
My dear son-in-law, Austin, is the best SAW gunner the company commander and the first sergeant ever saw, so they gave him a token of their affection and admiration -- an Army Achievement Medal.
Eldest son Lee out in Utah, dressed for success on the way to a Second Amendment rally at the state Capitol.
Momma's little cutey -- Sam. This bruiser is in the 97th percentile for length and 85th for weight. That's what happens when you're born at 9 pounds 11 ounces.
Two of my favorite people. Lou Gramm and Scott Pitoniak. Lou's autobiography is wonderful and I happily recommend it.
Blue-eyed Ellie and I took Jimmy for a walk one Saturday morning.
The other night young Scott took a key and started doing some preventative maintenance on the bunk bed ladder. He is already far handier than his father.
Things not going well with Scott and Robbie during a visit to Minnehan's.
Robbie makes peace.
Boys are happy.
The clean up gets done.
We went out for a family portrait at Ross Photography in Schoen Place.
Scott tired of posing and fell in love with a prop.
Two months ago, Monroe County sheriff's Deputy Jason Elliotto pulled this little girl's near-lifeless body out of a burning home. He had already helped pull her mother out, but felt something urging him to go back in. He found her under a pile of clothes. This smile is his reward.
Lee has gone the last few springs to a Hindu Festival of Colors, which features throwing a bunch of colored corn meal into the air.
We went on a hike the other day, with these two in the lead. Blue-eyed Ellie ran far ahead on the trail, like a deer.
Dear Jimmy loves being in the woods.
Mom and Sam are outdoorspeople.
Scott cops a squat whenever the opportunity presents itself.
Young Robbie loves the trail. He is a bundle of energy and joy.
Scott is a bit fastidious. he is upset here because he has dirt on his hand.
Jack, the king of the second grade, is a big fan of camouflage.
Here's the hiking team in the woods.
Beautiful Hannah, a student teacher at Geneseo Central, and little brother Sam.
This is retired National Guard Sgt. Giancarlo Lusardi. We ran into one another at the Culver Road Armory. We had met at the armory some 20 years earlier when I was a newspaper reporter and he was moblizing for the first Gulf War.
