Meet the family - Rich

Here's Rich fishing last summer in Big Bear. He really does enjoy fishing, but unfortunately he went fishing at least 3 times last summer and didn't catch a single fish. Maybe you ought to try Velveeta as bait, hon. Drew would gladly finish any leftovers.

But he is a real outdoors kind of guy. The year before last, he climbed Half Dome in Yosemite with Drew, and he loves to go on hikes here in Shadow Hills, taking along Missy or Olive. He just discovered that he really likes dirt bike riding, and he and Drew dream of getting a pair of Hondas someday.

Rich's spare time these days is spent working on "the porch". This has become kind of a joke between us. Let's just say there have been a few unforeseen delays. Someday, I look forward to sitting on the finished porch in a rocking chair on a warm summer evening. Hopefully I won't be a granny rocking a grand-baby by then. Just kidding Rich, I know you'll finish it up this year! (if not, we'll have to 'hire that done.')

Rich is such a great guy! We really love him. He especially looks "cute" in an open-faced motorcycle helmet one size too small rolling over in a dune buggy!! But really, if there is ever a person you would want to emulate, it is Rich. He is so dedicated to the Lord, the body of Christ, and his family. He is the best "Uncle Ditch" around!
