I Am Thankful

Times are rough right now, but I'm especially thankful for Mia & Dominic. They have both offered to help and I will need their assistance to get through these tough times. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with Mike & Vanessa joining us at Mom & Dad's.

Fire Danger Gone - Hooray!

Yesterday was a little scary around here. All day I could see the flames of a fire that had started on the other side of the freeway. We weren't in imminent danger unless the winds changed, but that was enough to keep me home all day. Instead of cleaning house & doing laundry I played with pictures again. Here's our Halloween decorations & some pictures from my annual visit to Oak Glen. Don't you just love the "John Lennon" jack-o-lantern made by Dominic?

A Sad Day

Yesterday a wonderful man, husband, father, friend, coach and mentor took his last breath. Mitchell "Mike" Kekich passed away in Albuquerque surrounded by his loved ones. I first met him in 1972 and he has been like a second father to me along with many other lucky people. He lived a wonderful life, raised wonderful children and was married to the same lovely woman for more than 50 years. He will be sorely missed, but never, never forgotten. Here are a few pictures of his 80th Surprise Birthday party in February of 2007. Ziveli! Na zdravie!

Halloween Fun

Here's a few pictures from the day. There's the office picture, the bowling lunch, Dominic the rock star, Mia the cowgirl, and Dominic & Vanessa. What fun times!
