Maura (6), Jack (8)and I spent an hour in Half Price Books on Lane Ave while we waited to meet the family for breakfast for dinner at Whole Foods after swim practice.
We bought a couple of books and Maura said she needed an alarm clock to get up in time for her daily 8 am dive practice. Sounded reasonable to me.
The one she chose makes the sound of hogs-
No buzzer. No bells, no sonar beep- PIGS!!
Turns out it would be my new Grandson’s birth date but we didn’t know that fact in the morning. Video
Cecilia, of thekitchensgarden do they sound authentic ?
I thought it was automatic. An electronic note to me. Six years is a long time. Today’s post is #2132.
Six years ago today I started blogging at wordpress. I thought at least they would send a notice… Congrats on Six Years of Blogging. I’ve seen badges on other blogs for years of blogging accomplished.
I told my granddaughter it was my blogaversary and she said, “What’s that?”
No drum roll, no brass band, waaaaah waaaah waaaaaah, whine, whine, whine,
No one really cares, just me.
This was the first photo I blogged on July 14, 2009.
Murphy passed away and Michael is going to be ten in August.

P.s. 11th hour update. Thanks WP
Not even 24 hours old. My daughter Laura and her husband James have a new member of the family.
Charles Joseph. 7 pounds 15 ounces. 19 1/2 inches long.
He arrived Thursday night but Anna and Michael were home in bed resting up for the Peppe Meet at Ohio State Swim Club Friday afternoon.
Friday morning, we went to Riverside hospital on the way to the swim meet. It was on the way to OSU.
Anna meets baby Charles-
Michael gets a turn with Charles on the Boppy
Anna waits for another turn to hold her new first cousin.

Went back to my Okanogan album of 2007 and found this photo of my brother shopping in Hank’s Market in Twisp WA. How about that wildlife?
Happy Flag Day Birthday David.

You’re taking the same exit as the truck in front of you with the sign?
What do you do?
Roanoke Route 581 Photographed by Marlene with Erika driving. The truck exited the same direction they wanted to go. They exited too!
The minute I saw this painting, I knew it would be perfect in the nursery.
My friend and blog follower Toni K. took this photograph Saturday 5-30-15 at the shower. Thanks for sending it.
Here’s Laura with the Night Forest Elephant and Bird piece I bought at the PERSAD Art for Change 2015 Auction.
Jeffrey Brunner of Hey Beast Studio in Pittsburgh is the artist! He’ll have a booth at the Three Rivers Art Festival next week.

The family has gathered in. The house comes alive.
Awkward Family Photo® Game on the front porch.
Telling a story without words. Sequence.
Reviewing these photos from the archives, I’d say I was an observer, not a participant.
