Saying Goodbye

My Sweet Auntie Rita has finished her time here on earth. She lived her life to the fullest, with grace and dignity, regardless of the roadblocks that were thrown into her path. ALS weakened her body. It did nothing to her faith or inner strength, if anything, she became stronger. She wanted to remain in her home for her final days. The end of her journey on earth was filled with family, friends, and gentle loving care from her daughters. We will be traveling to her home in Colorado to say our final goodbyes. Here she is, in a healthy younger body, doing one of her favorite things, photography.

Lovin' the 80's

Tonight I went to a surprise birthday party for one of Laci's longtime friends. Shannon turned 30 in April. Her parents had a party for her a month later, so it was a real surprise for her! Since she was born in 1980 they asked everyone to dress the part. This was Shannon and her family arriving.Pictures of Laci before Shannon arrived. Laci loves the 80's. She rocks the 80's look!Me, not so much....I liked the 80's look better the first time around! I was younger, thinner, didn't have to wear glasses, had the Farah hair...yeah much better then.Shannon and Laci have been best friends since 7th grade.They look great, Shannon has four kids, and Laci has three!Whoa, look at these guys, totally rad! They played the part! They could have been fresh off of a Saturday Night Live skit. Especially Mr. Pink! He was very comfortably in his skin. To get the 80's look the guys went shopping and bought these Nike running outfits from the women's department. HILARIOUS....close to being X rated, but very funny! Happy birthday Shannon!

...More of Today

We went to the beach today. This is looking back to shore, from Balboa pier.This handsome guy was stealing bait from a fisherman on the pier.We watched the Sea Gulls and Pelicans . The Pelicans were doing dives straight into the water searching for fish.This Bougainvillea has had my attention for months. I finally had my camera with me today and could snap this picture. This tree is HUGE! It looks beautiful framing the garage door in this alley. Today was a beautiful day, that's for sure!


It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood!

Friday Funny!

This past week Jerry and I had some errands to run. While we were out we stopped for lunch. As we were backing our car up to go back to work I saw something that just made me giggle. I don't know if you have ever had thoughts about cars that are just random. Call me weird but I see cars as people, well...not people, but faces. Some look like they have big round eyes. Some have slanted eyes that remind me of Siamese cats. Some look like they have a mustache, etc...Well this car made my day....I don't think I have ever seen a car as happy as this one!
What do you think?
