Other duties as assigned

We are in Redding for Northstate's Go-live. The most urgent need became the Starbucks run.  

Quite possibly the coolest baristas I have ever met. 

Thanks Meg and Sheena!

Purple Patent Glitter

While searching eBay today ....

I found a very nice priced purple one, while the price is right, very limited clientele.  One legged Jane's lucky day.

Top 5 pics sent to me week ending 5/31

Oreo Tradition

Sydney circa 2012

When the Annual Beach Trip started in 2008 MJM was a pre-teen who freaked out at the thought of  sand or salt in her mouth.  KT saved the day with the mandatory oreos when going to the beach. As described by the self-proclaimed beach babe was that the combination of sweet and chocolate takes away the texture of sand and flavor of salt.

I love the influence that others bring into our family's traditions.  In this case not only my children, but also Ruth's children, cannot go to the beach without oreos in packed and in hand.

3. Beautiful in any color
4. If you are bored, take her with you. She's amazing entertainment!

Green is Good

My first experience in IT was a PHS (pathways healthcare scheduling) implementation at Scottsdale Healthcare.  During the training the visiting expert whose quote I have used over and over again was, "green is good (you can schedule a patient appt) orange is better (you can override)"

Tonight for our anniversary dinner Tarzan and I both showed up in green (me on grass green, he is cactus green).
Then everyone but REM had some shade of green.

We went to a Brazilian Steakhouse where once again green is good.
That said RED was better as we all became very full.
In other news desert (an Ashed event) was a reality lesson.  Reality in good, better and worst.

Happy Anniversary - my favorite 22


Love this man and this blessed life.

Not cute in either picture. But I am sure she was Ellen's BFF.
