Building Sand Castles:

Bob the Builder must be my uncle because, like Obama said, yes we can, you know, build sandcastles, and maybe even a snowman with the Frozen Girls of Disney, of Once Upon a Time (OUT), as in get out, because as Barney said, I love you, and you love me, and as Pee Wee Herman said, I know what you are but what am I, is the question, like William Shakespeare said like a half of a millennial ago, to be or not to be, and whenever I was at the beach, I had to be a busy bee building sand castles even before I was hooked on the addiction of Sim City around 1994 or so.

Beach Trips

Here are our photos from our annual summer trip to see my mother's sister, Karen, Uncle Jim Williams, their kids, Alan, Nathan, in Warrenton, Oregon. These photos are from Thursday, the 3rd to the 5th of July, 1997, which was her 45th birthday. I was twelve.

Like Trump

I'm addicted to building, to making things, especially videos since 1996. Speaking of that, I interacted in a big thread, a big post about Dlive leaving Steem this week, and coincidentally, I've seen my reputation drop from 55 to 51, possibly related to that article on Steem, or maybe other trending posts that I was commenting on. Feeling bitter sweet about that, kind of like how I felt when I first joined Steemit.com on the 18th of June of 2017 as I was voted down, flagged, a lot the first month, which pressed me to hide from certain kinds of people, maybe whales, etc. I'm not sure what I might do if people continue to try to kill my reputation and everything.

I love to build sand castles. Our family trip to the beach in 1997 in Oregon. Upvoted.

I always love to go through old photo albums! It just has this something extra. Bit of nostalgia you just don't get while swiping though your smartphone albums

but an another note.. forget simcity! rollercoaster tycoon! that stuff was fire!

Hello Muffins, yeah, haha, totally agree!

We can get back to book reading. Technology is like power seen in Indiana Jones 5 with the aliens sucking knowledge into that guys, ummm, spoiler alert, haha, his brain, and he blew up, and a lot of tech and stuff can fry us, like 5G, and many things.

Towers, Gardens

I try to eat from gardens. Yeah, Sim City. And I probably should try the roller coaster tycoon. I did play Sim Tower. Upvoted. Thanks for this. Awesome.

howdy there Oatmeal! hey who is Ricky? is that your brother? lots of good pictures here!

Yeah, Rick is my older brother, my only brother, who went to study airplanes in Oklahoma, and he Lived in Texas, we are from Oregon, and he went to Honduras with his wife to be a missionary this year. Upvoted.

howdy there Oatmeal! oh how interesting. well sir...that would make some amazing posts if you could go visit him in Honduras! Is he with a particular church that is doing missionary work or is he on his own?

Hundreds of Emails?

Rick sent support emails to hundreds of churches in 2018, this year, has been asking for financial support from anybody and everybody. Today, my mom was asking people for advice and help on that for Rick.

Raising Awareness?

That is one of the reasons I talk about Rick, in order to encourage people to support him, to resteem him, his things, to share his photos, what he is doing, and everything. I'll continue to try my best to tell people about Rick. That is part of the reason why I have an RSS feed for Steemit as well.

Some Work?

Rick has worked & pays some of the bills with like a job as an airplane engineer, mechanic, electrician, or something like that. I'm not sure if he has received any support from churches yet, but probably not consistently and probably not enough based off the concern my mom seems to display. Rick has a Facebook page where he has asked for financial help. I do try to encourage Rick to come to Steemit and I hope he comes someday.

howdy there today Oatmeal! oh ok I understand. Well I hope that he does come to steemit and maybe that could help to spread word about his work.
Well I know it would, I just don't know if there would be nough people that could help to support him!

Nice pics and memories. Building sand castles on the beach is the best to do there. Have a good weekend ;)

You too. Have a great weekend. The beach is great, even when the water's cold. Oregon is known for fresh, cool, delightful ocean water. Refreshing like a polar bear swim.

Awww such cute beach photos thanks for sharing lol 😊 upvoted to support
