A younger Ryan

On the trail
In the big pinesIt seems to be getting increasingly difficult for me to find something to blog about each Tuesday. I know I still have a lot of grandchildren to brag about but for some reason, I don't like to do grandchildren unless I have five or six pictures of them to post. I tried to find some before Dick left for his church meeting so that he could help me post them, but we only found four of Ryan, who is the one I decided to post about. They are all on some of his MANY hiking trips with his dad. The two of them really love to hike and they have a plan to eventually hike all of the National Parks. They have a darned good start of them and I wish I knew how many they have done, but maybe Sue will know. I just called her to see if she could find just one picture of him in his suit, looking business like as he looks pretty nifty in his suits. I learned one thing about him when he was here with the family for their yearly golf trip at the end of May. He doesn't always wear a suit when he goes to work. I guess I just thought that all auditors wore suits while working, but I was mistaken.
I am so proud of Ryan, because I just know he has to be one of the youngest managers working for a major auditing firm. He is very intelligent and passed his CPA exam the first time he took it. He went to work for one of the big accounting firms right out of school and has climbed the ladder pretty quickly. Being a manager is a very responsible job. They head up an auditing team and usually have a few businesses that they audit. Ryan and his team were in the process of auditing one of them when it came time for him to come down here for the golf. After just a day, it seemed like as soon as he got home from playing golf, he was on the phone. They were having some difficult problems that pretty much required his presence and unfortunatley he did have to fly home early, in the wee small hours of the morning. We hated seeing him go home, but he did as much as he could from here, without actually being there. At least he got a couple of mornings of golf in but that was all. He has done a very good job for them.
Anyway, I just had to sing his praises a bit here. He is such a handsome guy, but I do have to tell you, he is a very big tease and he really loves to tease his grandma. I am pretty much on to him though, and he doesn't get me too often. I think it thrills him a lot when occasionally he is successful.
Well, Dick just got home, quite a bit earlier than I thought he would, which is good for me because now he can retrieve some pictures that Sue sent me of Ryan and he can add them for me.
- Maybe next week I can do better, but honestly nothing much happened to me this week.........just a lot of the usual, doctors, labs etc.
