Not bad considering

decorated in full sunlight.

Downtown Christmas Tree

Needed some trimming

Chain saw not bothering him.

He came flying down the sidewalk between the cars and the Tavern about 6 off the ground and rose to the top of the pole.
Anyone leaving the tavern would have had to duck or get hit.
Maybe he recognized his tree had been moved.

Beggers cant be choosers.

A little more shaping and decorations and it will be perfect.

The Full Treatment

Shingles AND roof.

Annual Tower Inspection.

Brians back.

Maybe I should find a less busy place to watch him.

Meet Brian

No Wind and Cold

Am glad 2014 about over.

Its been hard on our houses.

Hello, my name is Michael (Mick) Deckman and I live in Parker City, Indiana. I was born on the northeast corner of N.Fulton St. and E. Oak St. one block south of the ole Parker School Building. I spent my school days living 2 houses farther south at 227 N. Fulton St. I graduated from Parker High in 1958. As I was not a member of any of the great basketball teams of the time, some of you may not remember me. I earned my letters playing baseball. I have operated the town's water plant since 1966 and have seen many changes in the town, some good, some not so good. Although the downtown has lost several buildings and businesses, there are many new ones on the highway now. After several years of decline, Parker City is back. The Street Fair Homecoming has returned, with fireworks on opening night, and new homes are being built on the southeast edge of town. My roots are here, my life's work has been here and I'll probably die here. I have tried my best to make this town a good place for all to live and now through these pages, I'm bringing Parker City to you and the world.

As you can see, there are images of present day Parker City, some news, highlights and history.
It all began on the evening of May 10,1998.
