Not so much today....
I just found out my son who went to Germany on September 1 to return mid January is staying throughout the school year. Boo Hoo. His Euro soccer sponsors want him to stay the rest of the school year for study and playing. I'll be over there in a couple weeks to visit him, but knowing he'll be gone till summer is heartbreaking.

This is the 22 year old that is in Germany

Missing him. A lot. Thousands of miles away instead of 100s.

Chin up there, Susan.

Your son found a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and he's wise enough to take advantage of it.

Well, the Pickle is officially 21 years old today.

It is AMAZING how time flies. He flies out to Vegas with some friends and his Dad this evening at 6:00pm. (Ohhhhhh sh#t.)


I get a little teary eyed looking at photos of him when he was just a wee lad...

I am blessed.

He flies out to Vegas

I guess that's the standard "turn 21 and go to Vegas". My son must have gone to Vegas 10 times in the last 2 years as he and his friends turned 21. Drove me crazy! Turns out they could get a RT flight on Allegiant airlines out of Monterey for $60.
Crazy how time flies. But, lucky you, you'll have tons more years with your guy and eventually grand kids....I was 41 when I had my son! I hope to live long enough just to see him get married. They really teach us about life, eh?

Thanks Chaz and Burchy, I am very glad he has this opportunity....plus I get to go visit him ... And it's been a million years since I was in Europe during the winter. We're hoping to get lots of skiing in.
All's good, but his girlfriend is pissed.

What a wonderful opportunity for your son, Susan! And the visit will be all the more special. Congrats to him and his hard, good work.



I wonder if the Pickle has even GONE to sleep yet, having arrived in Vegas last night. I suspect I will not be getting "updates" and since I avoid being a helicopter mom, I shall await his return to try to pry out stories from him. (I know, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. damnit)



When big events happen, like the Pickle turning 21, I start to feel the loss of my mom just a bit more. Sooooo instead of "crying" about it last night, I turned to music, one of my passions, and updated my SoundCloud.

Ahhhh, music ... So therapeutic.

Yeah, I wanted the "stories" too. Truth be told I'm not sure he even knew what happened. He arrived home safely each time and that was all I could ask for. Eventually the whole "21" thing settled down. I was glad when the novelty wore off.

I never did ANY of the sh#t Pickle does now when I was his age.
Why? I was busy being a mom at his age.
I'd rather he get it out of his system... and become a parent later in life. (fingers crossed!)

Well Leggs, the new season's here for OSF. Harlem Renaissance take on Comedy of Errors with Apollo Theater is such a great concept. My favorite stage actor, Dan Donahue, is back with the company as Richard III. Yay!

Seagoat, saw that some deep pocket picked up the Shakespeare Santa Cruz tab after UCSC bailed. It's back. Summer plans taking shape.

Here's the Ashland lineup:

Sullly... you speak my language, young lady.
(I've been missing you. I apologize for my lack of communication... always in my heart, Sullly.)
The lineup ... Hmmmm... I suspect I will be going back home to California more this year... I would love to do this with you!? ~xx) (oh, and I WILL be thinking of you on Sunday evening. You best believe it!)
