I moved here in 1993 from Ohio. Chicago is the great mecca of the Midwest. I am here, but I still root for the Buckeyes. OSU is how I came to know another Jesus. There are lots of sites dedicated to this fellow, but I picked this one to make myself laugh at the high five near the bottom. Usually, you form around the raised arms to spell O-H-I-O. It is funny to me.
Ride with me here, it all comes together in the end.
My husband's birthday is always difficult. He doesn't like stuff, he never wants anything. I got creative and had this terrific grad student come out to do a family photo shoot.
We took the pictures on Sunday. We sat on a bench, stood around, usual awkward poses for trying to look natural.
On Monday, one of my favorite oak trees fell into the front yard. This isnt the tree obviously but I was too sad to take a picture of it. It seemed disrespectful. It just up and fell - no storm, no wind, no (foreshadowing) lightning.
On Tuesday, it seems Jesus was struck by lightning and burned to the ground.
Here is the bench we were sitting on for pictures, smashed. It was sitting right under that tree that came crashing down.
Is Someone trying to send me a message? I POAS this weekend.
Here is Huck in front of the bench. He never had that bottom canine tooth. It was missing when we adopted him. Cute, isnt it?
