Catching up... I promise!

My posting has been rather sporatic, and I'm sorry for that. I have so many ideas for posts go through my head, but it seems like so much effort... am I growing older? Or is it my musings seem so ordinary? I don't know, but I notice many of my fellow bloggers have been much quieter, recently. I think it might be we are spending more time LIVING life, instead of WRITING about it! But, I am going to try to catch up on a few things. I keep this blog as a family diary, and there are photos and things I need to add.

The Oklahoma City Greek Festival has always been a favorite event, and this year was no different. Of course it is not quite up to the par of Detroit's Greek Town, but it does make a satisfactory substitute. :)

At the Greek festival there are all kinds of wonderful delicacies. You can get a full Greek dinner with the stuffed grape leaves and a whole bunch of dishes I can't pronounce, let alone spell! But we always go to the "a la carte" line, because that's where we get the gyros and spinach pie. Oh, and the Greek Coffee!!!

I took this salad with a piece of cheese pie "to go" so I could have it for lunch at work the next day. It made a plain old work day something to really look forward to!

... and the pièce de résistance! How do you say that in Greek? BAKLAVA!!!
We had Shelby's portrait drawn by this artist when she was about 4 years old. I will post it later if I can find it.

Yes, we had to take a cheesy face-in-the-hole photo. We are just a couple of big kids!

The Sky the Morning Marvin Died

John took this photo... it was a beautiful day for a trip over the Rainbow Bridge.

Sweet Marvin, go play and run with TomGirl, Sheba, Jonah, and all the dogs I have loved. You have been a good boy, and you have earned your rest. I love you.
