I found a few minutes today sitting at my desk. Those minutes have been few and far between of late. I was deciding whether to conjure up a blog post about Halloween or write my "Soldier" a letter...

Well, I chose to write him. It made me happy. I hope it makes him happy too!!!

So, long story short, have a SAFE and HAPPY HALLOWEEN...Whether you and yours are choosing to celebrate on Saturday night or Sunday night, or maybe even TONIGHT, have a ton of fun and eat lots of CANDY!!! Your dentist will thank you....LOL

...and hey, sorry for NO picture, my blogger toolbar doesn't have the image link for some reason...what kind of crap is that....??? Have I exceeded my photo limits? Who knows. Now I'm tired and I'm going home!!! Good night all....

Keeping Secrets....

Sometimes, well, most of the time, I have to keep some pretty big secrets...

Some, because friends ask me to.

Some, so I don't hurt others' feelings.

Some, because it's a surprise.

Some.. well, you get the picture...

My daily secrets are work related because of client confidentiality agreements.

Those are part of the gig.

"Hey, guess what..?"

Oh yeah. Nope. Can't share.

Can't share until the client shares with the world.

So, I'm here to share a few fun things that were created a couple years ago...
by our group of VERY creative engineers, designers, sculptors, fabricators, scenic artists...

Yeah, I told you...SECRETS I have to KEEP. For a VERY LONG TIME!!!

On Phillips' recent trip to Japan, he was able to get shots of these in place..
In a VERY public place.

 For all to see. 
So, NOW I'm sharing....

 This is a man/dog (you know his name!) fully animated, riding a unicycle. 

Who knew a man/dog could ride a one-wheeled contraption?

...And how about some cousins? I think you might know them too...
H.... D..... L....?

They keep smiling. Going 'round, and 'round, and 'round.... I think I'd get dizzy...

Notice the E B blocks in the background on the shelf..?

"Honey, was that just a coincidence or a secret you're keeping?"

And then there's this guy...He's a REAL dog!!! lol

There's more, but I wouldn't want to bore you with a WHOLE tour....

plus, it's quittin' time...Time to get home and make dinner...!

But, before I go...a shout out to my new online friend...Kristen Robinson.

Here's a link to her blog....She is very creative and looks like she has a lot of fun in her studio too.

She just recently posted about a new online class on

Ethereal Bangles E-Course

He's In The Army NOW!!!

Yes. Yes, he left on Sunday morning. Phillip and I dropped him off at the recruiters office. 

Hugs. Well wishes.

He had asked me NOT to cry.

I didn't cry, but when I started to well-up, he said, "Mom, stop that!", as he was 
beginning to well-up too.  

That would not be good. 

So I turned and got in the passenger seat of the car.

He would ride on the transport van to Sacramento, do what they do, and board the 
flight to South Carolina today. 

This morning.

I'd be lying if I said he hasn't been on my mind for the last few days, but today especially.


Good Luck, Mr. Kyle. I'll see you in December. (I'm welling up again....)

Mr. Kyle (top left) and his younger brother A.J.(blue hat) and his older brother, Ty.
At Red Robin going away dinner Friday night.

All of the boys....

Alex (the Swanson's youngest), A.J., Ty, Zac (the Swanson's oldest), and Kyle.

Is it just me, or does it look like Kyle is pre-occupied with Deep Thoughts???

(photos are not the best quality...I-phone in the dark!!! Yeah, I forgot my camera...AGAIN!!!)
