    Pretty sweet bruise there eh? That’s what I get for thinking that Victoria would go easy on me after all the running up hills I have made her do in the past few months. Lester takes Ben to the rink to skate on Friday nights and I decided once that I would go and see if I could skate. As it turns out, I couldn’t.  I have this built in thing in my brain that will not allow me to fall over. If you have been snow skiing with me, you would know this.  You would think it would be one of those really cool traits to have, but it…

    Total highlight of my day!

    I picked up my packet today and I got to meet Kate. What a great hug in the middle of the day. As I was getting my shirt, My Friend Brad (MFB) came up and tapped me on the shoulder. OMG! I was so excited. I haven’t seen him in 11 years!  He looked good, but I am insisting that he needs to eat a few cheeseburgers! I went back and picked up Victoria’s packet for her and I asked the lady if I could see the 2xl shirts, I held it up to me and she crinkled her nose and shook her head. I said, “I know, too big,…

        Michael’s will be the death of me. Yesterday I went in to get bags for the projects that we are selling at the Getty Owl Run at our booth and I walked out with 14 canvases.   I did not need all 14, but they were on sale and I had the 22.00 dollars to spend on them. Now I am waiting for my prints to finish so I can work on them with the canvases. Now that the weather isn’t so damn cold I can spend time in my Stu-Stu-Studio and work on things. I was so bored the other night and I needed an outlet I…

    Pappy and his new bestest friend

    On the 10th of February Lester became a Pappy!  I have very much enjoyed watching Lester’s excitement level through this whole process.   He couldn’t sleep when he got the call that his daughter in law was heading to the hospital. Yesterday he came home and for the first time and was wide awake while his Pappy held him and talked to him.  It was a pretty special moment and I was blessed to be able to capture the moment. Valentine’s day is tomorrow and I made it really easy on Lester this year.  I told him what I wanted. Last summer I decided to take up metal stamping. I…

    This month has been so exciting so far!  On the first I went kayaking. On the second I went to a road trip with Lester.  On the third I went…well, I don’t KNOW exactly where I was, because we were somewhat lost, but it was so beautiful and I had on my trail running shoes. On our way back from our road trip we stopped to get pictures of the girls at their karate dinner to recognize all the hard work that they do.  Alyx was tested and passed for her second degree black belt. It’s so hard to believe they have been doing this for….YEARS AND YEARS. Best thing…

    Holy Filet of Fuck!

    Last August Victoria and I took out the kayaks and went out for the day. I came home sunburned, sore and with battle wounds. She has been saying she wants to take them out again. “It’s raining outside…and colder than a witch’s tit. No.” I try to reason with her. “It will be fun!” Sure as shit, I will have that engraved on her tombstone!  “it will be fun!” will be the thing that lands our asses in jail too! Today I gave in to her pleas and we headed out for a couple hours.  SO.    MUCH.   BETTER.    It was cold, but it was quiet.  She said,…
