Quote for the Day:
"There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven--
A time to give birth and a time to die"
~Ecclesiastes 3:1-2a, Holy Bible, New American Standard Version

Yes...I've been missing in action.  But I'm back...temporarily, anyway.

We had to make an emergency trip to Maine last Friday because Andy's brother, Joe, passed away unexpectedly.  

These pictures are about 30 years old, but I haven't been able to put my hands on any of the "recent" pictures that I have kicking around here somewhere.  

He will be missed so much by his family and friends...which are many!  It's been a hard week, but we are making our way through the grief.

On our way back from Maine we found out that our daughter had gone into labor!  She and Dale kept us updated with what was going on and then the news came that we had a new grandson!!!

Clark Christopher Paez

I can't wait till we get to meet him and hold him next week!!!  He'll get all kinds of spoiled while I'm there!!!  :)

And now I need to go finish laundry and get ready for the rest of the week!



  1. My prayers and sympathy for your family as Joe's life is remembered. And congratulations on your sweet new grandson! What a perfect quote you have chosen.

    1. Vic, Thank you so much for your kind comments about my brother-in-law and my new grandbaby! :)

  2. So sorry to hear of your loss.

    So happy about little Clark! That picture looks like he's saying "put me back! I was warm!"
