Lauren Rose...

This is a recent picture of Lauren!! She keeps busy. Today is her 1st wedding anniversary... Happy Anniversary, Lauren and Steven! Lauren keeps busy working for her husbands company and for UPS. She continues to create and draw... her God given talent. She is precious to me... part of my world... and if I were to sit on a porch across from God...I would say, "Thanks for letting my borrrow Lauren". I love you, Rosey.

I so miss Michael... for some reason I feel so near to him when I am near the ocean. I can still hear his voice and see his smile. I hear his laugh. I cleaned out a cupboard the other day... I have a few of his clothes. I think that the clothes will have to disintegrate before I give them away. I am fiercely protective of all of his trinkets and very few "things" that I have of his. I know that they are "just things" but they are so precious to me... as they had some meaning of significance to him.
I took this pic in the sand at Cocoa Beach... and then right after that I looked down and there was a gorgeous piece of abalone shell.

MY BFF and Capt. Robbie

Cocoa Beach

Having a wonderful time... the weather is great...nice and warm and sunny. Yesterday, we went to see Charlie and Beth at their condo. We had a great time. I took a nap...by the pool and apparently was the envy of many who only wished that they could nap"like that"..LOL a PROFESSIONAL napper. Then last night we went to a comedy club... where we had a lot of laughs. Dave is having such a great time that he wants to spend another night! Great with me... I just have to open the store for 10:00 tomorrow...so I need to be on the road for 7:30. No big deal...another day by the pool is AOK w/ me. And we are going to Kyles Krafts this AM to buy a "pimping" (as my dear friend Capt. Robbie calls it) TOILET SEAT. That's right...toilet seat. They are one of a kind. LOOOOONG STORY. Stay tuned for pics.
