Couple Quirks

A quick update on Roxie while I am waiting for my tea to brew.    Even though Ross was diligent about getting the proper care for her, apparently some decisions about where she would have received the best care were not well thought out.  We admit that sometimes we chose convenience for us over what might have been best for Roxie.
Anyway, we had to decide once again, do we do what's best for us or for Roxie?

After agonizing:

I hope Roxie finds a good home

We sadly turned Roxie in for 

Meet Sored
what Ross calls a definite State Trooper magnet. 

A "couple quirk" that Ross and I have is, when one gets a new toy the other must also get a new toy.
When the iPods came out, we each had to get one.  Same for our iMacs, one for him, one for me.
Yep, his and hers iPhones.   We have matching EKORNES recliners.  They come in sizes, you know, small for me large for him.

So I couldn't possibly walk out of that show room without one of these for myself.

Cute, huh?

I have created a page for Anna's Diary.  It can be found under the Tab titled Anna's Diary.
I have posted all of the entries to date there, starting with January 1, 1929.
Here are the latest entries from Annie's diary:
Wed. September 11, 1929
Went down town with Jean.  Had lunch. Met Peg.  Decided to go to Shuberts to see "Scandals". Very good. Home early.
Thur. September 12, 1929
Went down town with Jean.  She bought hat, shoes and few little things.  Went to News and Star with Jewels.  Picture for the paper.  Potter made up a newspaper print. 
Friday, September 13, 1929
Stayed home with Baby.  Jean went with Billy to buy his suit.  Peg and Rosalie went shopping.  JEan brought me soft shelled crabs on toast.  Jewels picture in News today.
Sat. September 14, 1929
Night of Banquet.  All girls looked lovely.  About 100 guests.  Mr. C and Mr. G spoke.  Jewel looked gorgeous with bouquet of orchids and lily of the valley.  Went to Childs afterwards, girls there. 
Sun. September 15, 1929
Home all day.  Edythe & Peg playing tennis.  Went to 360 for a while.  Junior there all night with Uncle Louis and his wife to take care of 360.  visited Naps.


  1. Hey! Tell Ross to move to California - there are more obvious CHP magnets then Sored appears to be!

    And your new addition? male or female? (all my toys are boys...) Name?

    1. So, I looked under the hood, definitely male. :) I’m slowly getting a feel for his personality. No name yet.

    2. His name will evolve. The 1965 VW Beetle I had between 1972 and 1990 was Algernon PFY - ..... My current love is Oskar.

  2. Yeah I wanna know his/her name too!

  3. Haven't really named a car since our first (Imogene was an Escort, may she rest in peace). Considering how much time I spend behind the wheel, you would think I would want to have a name to be on a first-name basis with. Hope your new cars work serve you as well as the steadfast Roxie did.
