Hey, it's finally Sat. What a week. I was going to tell you I had a bad week, but, overall, it wasn't so bad. My silent business partner came by to collect the rent ( he wasn't very silent this week, though) but that wasn't bad, because we got to catch up on everything. Then, I went to the dentist and had some minor surgery done, (that was bad) $652.20 out of my pocket. But there were other good things this week. I had a few customers, which is always good, and a good friend and my sister came by to visit. And even my Dad stopped by my shop. So, overall my week was pretty good. How was yours?

Yesterday my nephew called me and told me that his wife's niece was diagnosed with leukemia. Which is a cancer of the blood. Her name is Amanda and she is 14 years old. I have often encouraged everyone to support the Leukemia Society and the Make a Wish Foundation, because when my son had leukemia they were very supportive in our fight against his disease. So once again, I am asking you to support them and please say a prayer for Amanda, because she is just beginning on a new uphill battle.

Camping at Cherry Valley Lakes

Well, we just got home today from a three day camping trip at Cherry Valley Lakes resort. It was nice overall. It was just Bob, Adam, and myself. Jarrod didn't want to go and Bobby had to work. We took Mitzy, and Adam took his dog Slick. Poor Slick didn't have that much fun though, he was sick the whole time. Adam took him to the vet's today and he has parvo. So he'll be at the vet's for 4 days. Enjoy the pictures.

Happy Sunday

Today is Sunday, Sept. 14th. Tomorrow is Jarrod's 19th birthday. We plan on just staying home. I will make spaghetti and meatballs for dinner, then we will have cake and ice cream. Today I plan on doing some housework and yard work. Always so many things to do. Hope everyone has a good day.

Our trip to Washington

Hello again.

Here are a few pictures that I took while in WA. We had a good trip. The weather up there was cold though, at least we Californians think so.

Our RV

Well, it's been a long time since I posted. I want to tell everyone about our new RV. It is a 1992 Gulf Stream Conquest. We just made a trip in it to Washington, to see my Dad and Stepmom. It drove really well. It is 27 ft. long and has twin beds in the back, an overhead queen size bed, a couch, and a dinette. So plenty of sleeping and riding space. My only complaint is, there is no counter space. But overall we got a great deal on it.

My son was diagnosed with leukemia in 1987 and he has been cancer free since he went into remission. Money was tight and we lived on a very small budget. Some of the charities that helped us were, The Cancer Society, the Leukemia society, the Candlelighters, and the Make A Wish foundation. These charities are a crucial part of cancer patients lives. So, I would like to encourage everyone to give to their favorite charities.

Let's talk about some Feel Good movies today. Last night I watched "The Gridiron", with "The Rock" in it. It was a really good movie, not anything like what I expected. Another movie I would recommend is the "Return of the Titans" Excellent movie. And last but not least would be "Crash". All three movies have to do with overcoming predjudices and rivaries. If you haven't seen these, consider them the next time you head for the video store. And if you have any favorites, let me know. I'm always on the lookout for a good movie. Have a good day.

Wow! Time really does fly! Here it is May 14th. already. I sold the popup trailer. I enjoyed a nice Mother's day and so did my shop, and am now looking forward to Dad's and grad's days. I was reading posts on Startup Nation about marketing and blogs, and I thought I had better get busy and post on my blog. So here I am. My gift shop has been going thru quite a few changes. I've put up a neon open sign, added more gifts, and have been rearranging everything. In a few days I will post some new pictures of my shop. If you're in the area drop by and chat.
Hope you have a great day!

A week already

Here it is January 7, 2008. We are already a week into the new year. I still haven't found my dog, Dingo, yet and am fighting a virus of some sort. I hope everyone's year is going good so far. Is everybody sticking to thier resolutions? I didn't make any. Don't make promises you can't keep, I say. Hope everyone has a good week.

Tuesday, January 1, 2008


Today I want to talk about dogs. I have two, but one is missing. His name is Dingo and he was last seen in Fontana, CA on Dec. 16, 2007. Something must have spooked him and he went over the chain link fence. He is 6 years old. We have had him since he was a puppy. He's tan, has a curled tail, black colorings on his tongue, and limps on his back left leg, due to surgery in May.

Happy 2008

Happy New Year! I want to wish everyone a safe and prosperous 2008!
