Book Signing

April 2011

I drove out to The Grove in LA to buy Jill's new book and hopefully have her sign it. I was surprised at how many people were there. She was adamant about making sure every book got signed. She even spoke for about 45 min. answering audience questions. She truly is a sweetheart and took the time to talk with each person as she signed their book. Thanks for a good experience for my first ever book signing.

Our Furry Bundle of Joy

Gizmo turned 3! It is hard to believe that he has been with us for so long, and at the same time I can't remember what it was like before we had him.

E and I went skiing up at Mountain High, SO MUCH FUN!

Here are some shots of E skiing

Skiing with Me
(just kidding, well sort of)

For real this time.

Always gotta take some self-portraits!

I demand a repeat next year.... of course open to anyone else who wants to come along as well!

--Gmo loves boxes --
 It does not matter what size, shape or style. When he sees a box he has an urge that he just needs to get in it.

Shoe boxes

Cutlery boxes

Packing boxes

Milk boxes (from Price Club), Blender boxes, Mailing boxes

Boxes for soda -- Which worked much better when he was a teenage kitten (top photo) than a grown monster cat (bottom photo)

He currently has a Baileys box he enjoys sitting in while staring out the front screen door to watch all the neighborhood kids, cats and dogs. And did I mention MOVING BOXES?

Sorry we have been off the grid with our blog...

The last day of Askew invasion had us hanging out at the Discovery Science Center and the out for Mexican food.
