The End of an Era

1943, Sue and Jim

Thurs. 09.29.16, around 11:00 am, my mother’s father passed away. 94 is a grand age to live to.

This photo of my grandfather and my mother from 1943 is a lovely one.

Christmas Eve Morning Walk

Belle, Butters, and Mom with a snowy Mt. Baldy the far background
Fri 12.24.10 – Sunny, folks! Bright and shiny clean sunny. The storm has moved out and Mom and I went for a walk down to River’s End. You can see in the far background, Mt. Baldy with snow on it. It is the day after a winter’s storm that make living in LA/SoCal worth it, at least until the first good heat wave.

Scruffy and Mom Have Arrived, or the Monday Dad Update

Mon 02.23.09 – The rear guard / back up troops have arrived… Mom and Scruffy pulled into my brother’s place in Parker, AZ, around 5pm or thereabouts today. My mom kindly agreed to come out to Parker to help me keep Cam resting and taking care of himself.
Which is a very good thing, since when I walked out of Joe’s house this morning to go across the street to my dad’s place to check on him, I found my dad in one of his crony’s trucks about to take off to go to have coffee. Grrrr….
While it seemed like a good idea after a night’s rest, when Cam returned from the jaunt, he was much worse for the wear and more willing to go back to his bed and nap. When Mom showed up, she told him that if he didn’t behave that she would get a electronic dog training collar for him and set up a perimeter. She was only half joking.
