Good Omens

My roses are still doing well.
I hope this is an omen for good things to come.
My car has been a worry.
It's ten years old. The crunch this past week was its
very first ding, ever.
I was afraid the cost of the repairs would total it.
They came to $5000. The car is worth $7100.
State Farm's cut off is 70% of the car's value.
So the repairman added in the 36,000 miles on the odometer.
That bumped the value up to $9500.
No problem now.

The cutest 17 year old boy ever ran his Jeep
into the back of my car at an intersection today.
I have a rice bag on my neck,
but I'm sure I'll be fine.
I just want a little sympathy, is all.

Another Blast From The Past

Today's random photos came from a random box.
This is Willie -- a rare photo not taken with
a digital camera.
I have to assume this was a visit to Idaho Falls made by
Dad's grandkids. Dad must have sent me this photo.
Look who's here:
Matt (not Reed) and Terri, Sally and Savannah, Laura, Heidi and Reed and Caleb,
Jill and Marty and Sophie, is that Sydney next to Tom?
And it's always nice to see Gayla.
Isn't this a nice photo of Sam?
When? Where? I have no idea.
I wonder if Steve gave any thought that someday
he'd be the seminary teacher feeding kids breakfast.
I swear, Matt and Andy were the cutest little boys ever.
Who knew Grandpa Cannon did this?
Obviously he was proud of himself.
I think Margaret talked him into it.
I remember this. Christmas in Lake Jackson.
HL, Matt and Andy, Pauline, Dave, Jeff, my Dave,
Mary, moi, Carolyn holding someone, Laura, Corinne, Ben and Chris.
Dad took the photo.
I love these people -- Dave, Mary and Matt.
Mom took this with her Polaroid. The ID comes from her
handwriting, which melted my heart.
l-r Jill, Mark, Tom, Matt, Sharon, Becky, Reed & Laura.
That was Christmas 1980.
Grandpa took this photo.
It's Andy again, the great fisherman.
This is Steve about 1994 in New Jersey.
Cori and Applesauce -- they spent a lot of time together.
This is one of my most favorite pictures ever!
Doesn't Sam look nice on my blog today?
Dave had just gotten his license, a major life event
for any mother.
Isn't this a great action shot?
Notice Cori is missing a few teeth.

Thank you, Julie. You're Welcome, Louie.

Did I really want to start this last post of Steve's visit with another picture of my groupies watching Star Trek?  I sure did.  We'...
