Laney's first adventure with Grandma

We went to a local department story this weekend to see Hello Kitty up close and personal. We arrived at the appointed time and then stood in line for an hour for our turn with Hello Kitty, we took some time out from standing in line to do a little coloring. Laney with her kitty ears and her Dora the Explorer lunch bag Finally it was our turn! Laney really did like Hello Kitty even though she doesn't look like it. When she first walked up to her Laney just stared. And of course we had to get a Hello Kitty shirt to mark this special occasion. This was our very first time going out by our selves and Laney was a little angel!

2011 remembrance

yesterday I ventured to Forest Park to be a part of this remembrance of the victims of 9/11. A number is just a number until you can see it. There was a flag for each person killed, laid out in military precision. The view is from the Grand Basin looking up to Art Hill and the Art Museum. Breathtaking.

old photo

i've been in the basement pitching junk, i'm trying to pare down my clutter so when i move into an apartment (hopefully 2012) i don't have to move so much junk. How come the more you throw away the more you seem to have? Goodwill and I have been good friends for the past 3 years, between my dad's stuff, my aunt's and mine.
This photo is of me I think 7th or 8th grade 12 or 13 years old. Don't know why I don't have my glasses on? I'm legally blind with out glasses or contacts and I didn't get my contacts until 1988. The sweater was beige, jumper was a red and black plaid as I recall. My mom ALWAYS cut my bangs right before picture day at school and they were always too short. The curls came courtesy of pin curls and a perm. My hair is as straight as a board and I have a double cowlick at the crown.
