Michael Jackson

This poster hung on my wall in 1983.

Like MILLIONS of other teenage girls in the 80's, I had this, among other's, hanging on my bedroom wall.

Like MILLIONS of other human's, I watched Mtv debut "Thriller" and the hysteria that followed that video; if we got wind that video was coming on, we all sat around the little, and I mean LITTLE, tv in the front room to watch it, WOW, who could predict how awesome that whole album would become, and how that video would change Mtv and music videos forever.

I remember (still) buying the CASSETTE TAPE of Thriller, and playing it over and over.

I was also shocked and saddened by the unexpected, sudden death of this MONUMENTAL figure from my youth and like millions of other people, I relived some of that time in my life on Friday when I downloaded Michael Jackson music onto my ipod and have had such a good time hearing these wonderful songs again. Music can certainly transport us to another place and time; in my case, 1982!

Ethan's new bike

This little boy went into the store to get some $1.00 cheap, plastic sandbox toys and when he found this bike, he really wanted it.

THEN, he decided he's rather have a stupid $1.00 toy (which we couldn't even find) and that he DID NOT want a bike......


So, now I'm taking Ethan OUT of the store, CRYING "I DON'T WANT A BIKE".........

On the way out we passed a Grandma and her grandson, he watched Ethan go by and said to his Grandma "Why doesn't he want a bike"???


By the time we got home, crying all the way, Doug had told him the bike was for Daddy now, not for him anyway. When Doug pulled it out of the van and put it on the ground, Ethan said "I want to ride my bike"..............

All's well that end's well.

Pretty Dolly

Looking for Nemo....

Ethan had a great time looking for Nemo in the school's fish-tank!

Perfect the penguin

Callie's classroom had a little (tiny) play (of sorts) and she was Perfect, the penguin.

Isn't she a cute little penguin?

Cody started this cedar chest in woodshop at school, it cost him almost $200.00 of his OWN money. It is beautiful, and I have suggested it would be a PERFECT gift for a Mother........
