Gorgeous picture, Lee. It would be nice to see the Rocky Mountains. Looks really peaceful. The leaves are starting to turn here, as well. I get to enjoy them up close and personal. I'm raking enough of them!

Terri and I took a motorcycle ride on the weekend up into the Rocky mountains near Estes Park and then back through Boulder. The aspen leaves are already turning brilliant gold and there is a crispness to the air. Most of the tourists have gone now that we're between the summer and winter tourist seasons leaving little traffic on the twisty canyon roads which are a perfect match for the Beemer. One of the attractions on the road from Estes Park to Nederland is this chapel named after St. Malo. It's built on a rock and is actually part of a Catholic retreat.

Don't forget the golf outing scheduled for this Friday, September 26th if you're available. I'll be on my way to Singapore this weekend so there will be no golfing for me .

Hi all, I hope Isabel was as kind to you as she was to us. They declared a state of emergency here, closed all of the schools, and when we woke up this morning, the sun was shining and it was breezy and somewhat humid. It is blowing and drizzling a little right now, but not enough to have to put up with the kids another day.

Hello everyone, Terri and I are back in Colorado after our trip to PA and we really appreciated the love and support of those of you who attended the viewing for Terri's mom and sent emails.

I got a copy of Jay's CD and I can say without hesitation that it's the best Christian CD I have in my collection. I will rip it and put some song samples on a web page for all to enjoy and hope that you can all order one from our dear friend, Jay.

Just in case you're lonely for the valley, particularly the back mountain, one of the most beautiful places in PA, I took some photos from a plane while I was flying around with our most famous barrister, John Nardone to check out some new property. You can see them here.

Well, I had my first choir rehearsal of the year last night. I piano, 3guitars, 1 clarinet, about 10 separate voices on top of that. Must be doing SOMETHING right! The neat thing about it is 5 of these people are in high school! I'm talking Freshmen and Sophomore. It's a great feeling. Within The Reign of God by Marty Haugen is going to sound Great! I'll be going to our cathedral on Sunday after Mass to support my friend Larry, who's being commissioned in Formation For Ministry in the Catechetical area. He intends to press onward to the Deaconate program. We also have our Parish Mission sarting at these Masses. It's kind of cool this year, because it's being run by the parishioners, as opposed to bringing in a clinician or guest speaker. I hope that all goes well. If I still have any energy left after this weekend, I'll report next week... Peace!

Jay, I was one of the moms humming that tune on the first day of school. I got to send all 3 kids this year--all day! I don't know how to act. It is going to take a few weeks just to get adjusted. Christmas shopping is going to be a breeze this year! I would love a copy of your CD. My computer was down for a while, so can you tell me how to get it from you, the cost, etc.? Thanks!

Lee, I sent out your CD this evening... I was thinking about a TV commercial that I saw some time ago when the first day of school came around. It showed the kids all looking forlorn and sad, sort of "walking the last mile" style. In the background you hear the pleasant melody of The Most Wonderful Time of The Year... Wonder how many of you moms were humming that tune... Doc, I'm very pleased that you like the CD. A lot of blood, sweat, and tears went into it. How's the collarbone? Ouch!!! That really must have been painful! Guess that's the price we pay for trying to stay in shape. I know that whenever I get a good run in, I try to do more and end up blowing out my calf muscle. Oh well... I'll be starting my choir rehearsals up next Thursday. I'm already trying to think up ideas for Christmas. Kind of makes me sound like the retail people... Any ideas from all of my church buddies would be greatly appreciated.

Let me see if i could get this to work -- i have a few messages in the past month or so - went to publish and it went off into never never land

I think I figured out what I was doing wrong

Lee and Terri - I am so sorry about Terri's mother -- prayers are with you all

Jay sent one of his CDs -- it is good, inspiring music!

Cannot believe the summer is here and gone -- the Dougherty's had a very busy few months - some highlights:

--My wife and I escaped to Ireland for a week without the kids - had a grand time - we went sailing for the first time -- what a great experience!

--I went to Asia (on business0 for the first tme - Malaysia and Hong Kong. Thought Hong Kong was fabulous and I am looking forward to returning

--the whole tribe went to Ocean City MD for a week in August -- had a ball -- all the kids love the ocean

Capped off the summer last Tuesday by breaking my collar bone (playing basketball at work) -- it will be okay -- but is extremely painful
