"Woo Hoooo!...50 Years...!"

Wishing all our friends, neighbors, and family
a super fantastic time
at the
50th Anniversary celebration
of the Sycamore Pumpkin Festival this weekend
in the beautiful (used to be) small town of
Sycamore, Illinois.
(Festival photos can be viewed here.)
Be sure to
enjoy every single second...every minute of the parade,
every pork chop sandwich,
slice of pumpkin pie, and cup of hot chocolate too! is indeed good!
Wish we could be there to party with you. :)

“The nice part about living in a small town
is that when you don't know what you're doing...
someone else does.”

"On The Road Again..." my sketchbook...
but this time back in Arizona
travelling between Wickenburg to Wikieup...
en route to Las Vegas Nevada.
(...flipped here just cuz I haven't done it in a long time! )
Lots of boulders, Joshua trees,
and beautiful, bold iron-red buttes decorated
our asphalt passage northwest!
Do I have a lot of catching up to do!

In Memoriam...

"Your time is limited,
so don't waste it living someone else's life.
Don't be trapped by dogma-
which is living with the results of other people's
Don't let the noise of other's opinions
drown out your own inner voice.
And most important,
have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
somehow already know
what you truly want to become.
Everything else is secondary."
~Steve Jobs

"Oh, Happy Day..."

October 2nd, 1945
they were wed at Alameda Naval Air Station
just outside San Francisco.
Tonight we celebrated their 66th wedding anniversary
complete with cream puffs...(it's a long story)
We love you Mom and Dad...:)
Oh happy day, indeed!

"Our wedding was many years ago.
The celebration continues to this day."

"Happy October..." most favorite month of the year! :)

"There is something in October sets the gypsy blood astir,
We must rise and follow her;
When from every hill of flame,
She calls and calls each vagabond by name.”
