Not sure how I want to continue to use this website. Most of my family and friends are now actively using Facebook to keep in touch so this will need to become more of a personal Blog space. If you have any suggestions, please leave them in the comments.

His Obituary


Friday, November 07, 2008

The newest addition to our household. She is approx 4 years old and very playful. It took a while for her to warm up to the rest of the resident hairballs but she only growls at our big black & white cat now. Steve calls her "Squishy the crabby lady" because he thinks she is fat and she makes cranky sounds when we pick her up. Her original name was "Krishy" but we are slowly changing it. So far she responds to anything that involves food.

Every year we get our BIG long hair, black & white cat shaved because he hates to be brushed and gets knots in his fur. He is always more comfortable and we have less cat hair floating around the house. But he looks pretty silly for the first month or so. [click on photo for larger view]

Also, once again our wedding anniversary (21!) almost slipped by without our notice. Good thing Mom reminded us or we would have completely forgotten. Thanks Mom!

I was sitting on the beach at Grand Haven last night and watched the largest Great Lakes Coast Guard Cutter leave the channel around 8pm. It had been docked in Grand Haven for the Coast Guard Festival. Notice how small the lighthouse looks in comparison. Click on the photo for a larger version.

If you want to be inspired, take an hour out of your day and watch the video of Randy Pausch giving "the last lecture" (it's the first link on the page). His lecture is also a book that is currently on the best seller list, but trust me the lecture is much better. Like many great people, he has made a difference in this world, not by what he has done, although impressive; but by the way he lived his life. He makes me want to be a better person.

Mary (Mary Alexandra) had a little lamb... [click on photo for larger version]
This is Alex, my youngest niece on Steve's side of the family. We spent some time at the zoo last Sunday. She was easily entertained and two hours flew by pretty fast. We could have actually spent more time there but had to leave with the zoo closed at 6pm.

Grand Rapids zoo is a bit limited with the area they are in (middle of town, no where to expand to) but they have built a few new exhibits that give the animals more natural space. It's a nice little zoo, animals are treated well, good staffing on weekends and clean public areas.
