1967 GTX Hemi

This is a toy of my father's that he has been working on for a while.  We decided to take it out for a spin.  I never really had a great appreciation for these old muscle cars until we got a couple of them to work on.  I can now see how they can cast a spell over a "mannish" heart.  This thing sounds sweet and runs with the power not fond in most cars now-a-days.  The other car he has is a Dodge Charger 440 six pack.  The numbers don't match like they do on this one but hopefully I can make a video of it so you can dig it's beauty as well.

Tiger Cubs - Trip to a Firestation

I have to say, after visiting the Firestation in Hoover, that the Firestation Russell went to was a LOT bigger, more modern, and (most importantly) had 2 working Firemen Poles. It was a gorgeous day and as you will see the boys got to experience a lot of neat things during their visit.

Feeling how heavy the Jaws of Life are...

Never a Dull Moment in 2012

As soon as January 1st of 2012 came we Fosters have hit the ground running...

  • Between fun family outings, like the Christmas Lights at Bellingrath Gardens and enjoying the Mardi Gras season...

  •  To the many Cub Scout activities, like working on a Toolbox for an Achievement or Fishing for a Belt Loop (and fun) and much more...

  •  To counting down the days of school until summer...
  •  To playing Basketball...

  •  To losing our first baby tooth...
  •  And to taking our "First Flight."

We Fosters have kept very busy. We have not forgotten this site but as you can see, and this is only a 3rd of the activities, sitting still to "blog" has been a little difficult. God Bless.

Yes, this site is still going and so are we.  New content forthcoming and new look.  I fixed it to where you can simply type in fostersmill without he "www" in the front on the address bar.
