He was bright and accomplished.
He was a hard worker and valued it in others.
He treasured lifelong friendships and was a loyal friend.
He was at home on the water as well as the golf course.
He excelled in business and was always fair.
He helped whenever he could.
He was an encourager.
He had a big, generous heart.
I don't have tangible things to show for a friendship that lasted 26 years.
But we have a heart full of memories
parties in the backyard times
stopping in for a visit times
new baby times
boat ride times
eating out times
The fun times
full of laughter and giggles.

We first noticed these doves last week.
Mourning Doves raise three or more broods in a single breeding season. Both parents build a flimsy platform nest of twigs located from 5 to 25 feet up in a tree or bush. Two white eggs hatch in about 14 - 16 days. One egg is laid in the evening, and the second on the next morning. The male usually incubates the egg during the day, and the female incubates at night. Nestlings, cared for by both parents, fledge in about 12-14 days. The parents continue to care for the fledglings until they are 25 to 27 days old.Mourning Doves are prolific breeders. In warmer areas, these birds may raise up to six broods in a season. This fast breeding is essential because mortality is high. Each year, mortality can reach 58% a year for adults and 69% for the young

It uses just a few ingredients, cooks fast and presents nicely.
I bet it's going to become one of your favorites too.
I skewer the chicken along with veggies I have on hand like bell pepper,
onion, mushrooms, and pineapple.
and about 4 minutes on the other.
They cook up beautifully on the grill as well.
