Noelle and I were driving around Cd'A the other day and saw this guy:
Looks kinda fun!

Pretty sure this guy put this bike together himself. 

Also - I didn't notice until I saw the enlarged cell phone photo on my computer, but he has a rag doll attached to the front.  I wonder what the significance of that is?

Crazy.  But kinda cool, too.

What's up with the Mascots?

Everywhere we go, every time Tanner sees any kind of mascot, he has to have his picture taken with them.

Here are a couple -

With Odie at Silverwood -
Tanner and my granddaughter, Evalie, at Cafe Chulo -

Not really a mascot, but a soda cooler shaped like the Star Wars character - all the same to him -
Love my Tanner-man!

Beautiful Lady...

As I was going through my cellphone photos in my quest to update this blog, I found this photo of my daughter-in-law, Elena. 

Isn't she beautiful? And she is just as beautiful on the inside.

My son is a lucky man, and I am a happy mother-in law.

Love you, Elena!

And here is a photo of their new child....

Their adorable kitty, Shadow.

It's Been A Long, Long Time

Yes, quite a while since I posted anything.  Not for the lack of having something to say, but just finding the time to squish in chronicling the events that I want to treasure and remember has been impossible.  But it is important to me that I do it - so many years went by before The Blog, where a couple snapshots of those memories are all I have, and it's a shame.

So I will catch up.  I will post what's been up here around the Carey household a 'lil bit at a time.  I will try to do it in something that resembles chronological order, because that's how I am wired to do things.  (I may even eventually change the dates that I post to reflect when it really happened, so don't get confused....

Can you tell that I am making a pledge to myself to get it done, and that if it's on paper for all (three of you who read my blog) to see, I WILL actually do it.

I hope.

In the meantime, a friend posted a link on FB to a blog post that had me crying my eyes out.   Right now, I think all of us can relate to it, in one way or another.
