throw back thursday!

My sibling put this on the facebook last week, but I love it so many I want to share it with you here. That's me and her in 1980 in my folks' Rambler. I was younger than buddy in this pic. Same hair, though.

Buddy around the same age, with the same hair. (And lipsticks.)

Some inspirational quotes for you.

So, listen. I just went through this entire slideshow of "99 Interesting Quotes that will change how you see the world" so you don't have to. There were a lot of good ones - I think I saved about 15 or so. I've narrowed it down to five here. Enjoy!

Anniversary Weekend Photo

Happy 11th wedding anniversary to me and Babe!

We went to the desert for our anniversary and gambled the night away at a casino called Morongo. We also shopped at outlet stores and ate a lot of food. 

Before leaving, though, we went to see the dinosaurs. I have literally wanted to see these things my entire life. Wish? Fulfilled! 

More about the dinosaurs later this week.

Thanks to my pal Simon for posting this on the Facebooks. I remember I was sitting in the City Hall Park waiting for a meeting.

My upstairs neighbor, Ilona Smithkin, called me on our house phone and said she saw me in the paper and was so proud of me. Haha. (click that Ilona link, you will not be sorry.)

Happy Birthday, Ben!!!

It was yesterday!

Ben is seriously one of the nicest people I have ever met in my life. He is one of the few children that I know that always walks up to both me and Babe and gives us a hug immediately upon seeing us. Both of us. I just love him to pieces. 

Here he was on his first birthday, eating a peach:
