LOVE IT, Chaz!!! Makes me smile!



My best friend and professional photographer has me do a monthly photo session of she and her little baby boy to journal his growth and her "slimming down" post birth. Since she is used to being behind the lens, it's impossible for her not to snap some shots...

I am so in love with this young man... ...

That's no bull:





That one ( sporting the red earring ) IS a bull. He wasn't very happy with me being so close to him. He "charged" a couple times, but I don't think his heart was really in it. Once he figured out I wasn't after his fillies ( or whatever female cattle are called ) we came to an understanding. I got my pictures, and he got his fillies.

Better than that! It was win win win win ... I lost count.

I know the guy who owns the cattle, he's my folks' neighbor.

He's a retired Marine, and his wife works for the State Department, so between the two of them, they've been to practically every hell-hole on earth. They have the most interesting stories to tell.

I was getting shots of their house when I got sidetracked, and decided to hop the ( electric ) fence and mingle with the bovines.

Their joint is the two-story gray house. My folks live in the brown house w/ brown roof on the right edge of this shot ( where I'm holed-up right now. One day, it will all be ... my sister's! ) Their cattle are lower-right:



He was watching from his house when his bull got pushy. He was laughing, too.

I got to test-fly a new kite. They got some pictures of their joint from a different angle:


( Penn Cove off in the distance, the Puget Sound right behind me )

And I get another bleu cheese bacon cheeseburger.

It doesn't get any better than this!

HoMan! That's perfect.

Had a Black and Bleu burger today, a little break from cleaning and nesting...

Not really, well kinda, sorta, broken hearted but happy too...sent my boy off to Germany today for 6 months to study sports marketing. He's lookin' pretty perky for 5 am. Me, I was totally unphotogenic....red eyes...and not because of a photo flash...his girlfriend was tougher than I was. Lots of tears from his Dad too.
I'll see him there in December but it seems like forever....

He's a lucky kid. Parents crying when you leave are a blessing... annoying, but a blessing... ;o)

Nothing to cry about, Ms Susan ( tears of joy excepted )

He looks like a good kid. It's HIS time now. Our time is slowly passing, and will be gone before we know it. He'll be making his mark, in ways only he can.

Text message response from my Pickle, after asking him to join me (us) for dinner on Friday night:

"Sorry Mommy, I'm at work until 11pm. :( "



He still calls me mommy .... and it always makes my heart beat.
He's been on his own for nearly 3 years.... a good kid. He FREAKS me out at times, don't get me wrong... but a wonderful young man, nonetheless.

Thank you, Susan... been missing mom a lot recently.




Today:
I just went down to my locally owned store, Holiday Mart, to get smokes...
Every time I have gone there
I would see this tiny woman
and her puppy
sitting on the side of "river" ...
I always wondered
what her story was.

She was killed by a driver on Monday, crossing the street with her puppy....
Perhaps I am far too sensitive
but when I met her family today
running a car wash to raise funds
I simply walked over, handed over $20 bones
and hugged her son
and conveyed my condolences
covered in tears.

I always thought I would see her...

Kiss, talk, hold, and listen to the ones you love ... and approach strangers out of kindness ... their stories are valuable too.

This gun was never fired in anger. Now, the kids play on it.
