Party! Party! Party! Bruce's birthday party celebration. Bruce and Robbie braved the icy road to join us for an evening of fin n' haddie, toast points and some yummy Lava Cake smothered in peppermint ice cream. And a quick game of Acquire (that Robbie won, after announcing, "I'm not sure I remember how to play this game" whine). Good time was had by all and now it's on to 2009! Yipee! Out with the bad (and hopefully) in with the good.

My 2008 review (muzak please): Trip to Santa Barbara (always a special treat, my dear), having my scrapbooked trip album published, the C word invasion (and all gone after Bruce's prostrate surgery) and many, many trips to doctors & lab tests, tests, tests, Scooter coming up and being an all around BIG help, an election that kept us on the edge of our seats, a stock market crash that is still being heard (oh well: easy come, easy go), Andrea moving miles and miles away (I know, Portland is just down the road, but seems like miles and miles away), Bruce (the younger) finding Love, Actually, and to top it off the snow and ice from H E double toothpicks that has us still stuck at the top of our little mountain. As the saying goes, "The times, they are a changin' " but all in one year? We take the good with the bad and in the long run --- the good always wins!

See ya next year!

December 30th

Happy Birthday!

Today is Bruce's birthday -- all day long! And my first day of posting on my new fandangoled blog. The musing of a northwester, stuck in the snow (the world seems to be happening without us Raymond Street ice mongrels). There will be a little of this and a little of that --- and once I get the hang of this communication device, things may get interesting (or not). So, welcome to my world as it is right now. Happy Birthday, Bruce!
