Las Senoritas visit in a Black Water Dragon Year

Las Senoritas visit in a Black Water Dragon Year

As it turns out June of 1952, when I was born, was a Black Water Dragon Year according to Chinese Astrology.  I enjoy the stars, think dragons are cool, and wanted to have a fun focus for my birthday party. http://www.vickidellojoio.com/2012/01/chinese-zodiac-2012-year-black-water-dragon/http://www.zcool.com.cn/ So we’re going to get together over the weekend and have party that will [...]

Happy b’day, guy

Happy b’day, guy

Yesterday I mentioned that this was a busy Special Day time of year.  So here we are on SD3.  Our son, Matthew turns 27 today.  He doesn’t much like having his picture taken, so here’s a picture from his youth.  I won’t say more since he likes to keep his private life, private.  ‘Nough to [...]

The middle of August is a busy time for our family in a Special Day sort of way.  Yesterday was the anniversary of the wedding of our daughter Kate and her husband Matt.  This picture was taken at the end of the reception.  We’d been having a great time and the party was beginning to [...]

Watching the summer colors

Watching the summer colors

We have not been using air conditioning in our house this past summer.  I began to not use it during the day as means of seeing how much energy we were using.  Trying to get a baseline of some sort.By Saturday I had given up.  James and I agreed that we needed a sweet blast [...]

Married to Hercules?

Married to Hercules?

We have not had a lot of luck with our washing machine.  Every time a repairman comes to the house the sequence is review, fix, and then as his truck drives up the street, quit working.  I am happy to have a Parking Fairy that adds us in our finding prime parking spots.  I am [...]

Interloper or family member?

Interloper or family member?

Fred’s role in our house seems to be unclear.  James and I feed him and fix his little scrapes.   Leia is fine with him at all times, save food time.  Then he is tolerated as long as he doesn’t touch her food.   Larry is comfortable with Fred spending time with us and seems [...]

Larry and his pad

Larry and his pad

What a week.  James’ back has been bothering him, so out comes the heating pad. Guess who thought it really was for him.

For Kate

For Kate

Thirty seven years ago I was in the maternity ward of Pomona Valley Hospital.  My ex and I were ready for our baby.  We were post-Lamaze trained; he was ready to coach, I was ready to push.  We were three weeks post-due date when labor began.  Mid-labor all of the training became unnecessary.  We were [...]

Aurora’s other victims

Aurora’s other victims

Just learning about the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado.  Very tragic situation in so many ways. Over the next couple of weeks folks will learn more about all involved – postulation and speculation are sure to follow. I’ve not seen the movie, but what I’ve read and seen of the trailer this clearly is a movie [...]

Big Work in a little town

Big Work in a little town

It’s not unusual for James and me to head out to Santa Paula.  It’s a grand little town.  It has precious little traffic, fresh sea air, a phenomenal butcher, and a pace that seems to refresh both of us.  We were recently at the Rodney Fernandez Gardens.  The corn is grown in the middle of [...]
