Monkey Update

The monkies have grown.  The original Monkey is 12 now and in the throes of tweendom.  Cowboy is now 10 and just as sweet as he was when he was 4.  Odie's 5 now, as he'll remind you of every time he talks to you.  And the Princess is 2, and has a temper worse than I've ever seen.  She's very much like Monkey though, and will likely be a diva.  I can't imagine my life without them.

Here's a quick update to show how they're doing.


It's been a while.

For some reason I've been reading my old posts on here recently.  It made me miss it, and to miss reading blogs in general.  So much has changed over the past few years in regards to technology and the internet.  As I said before, this blog was originally designed to keep in touch with friends and family.  Facebook has effectively taken care of that.  Cell phones, texting, all of that eventually made this blog obsolete. But upon re-reading a lot of my older posts, what I found was that I missed the writing, the constant oberservation of the world around me in a search for something to blog about.

I am ten times busier than I was before.  In the last couple of years I worked as the Base Commander's aide, and then moved to be the Operations Officer of my home squadron.  The thought of writing and taking pictures every day sounds daunting--but I'm going to give it a shot.

I need to, if only for my own sanity.
