Today is the girl's birthday! It's hard to believe she is 5.
Here she is just about a hour old.
It was 5 years and 4 months ago that Mark was diagnosed with cancer. At the time he wasn't sure how long he would live. He set a few goals the first was to see and be there when our first grandchild was born. He was so happy to see that day. He got to hold her first, right after the doctor, the nurse and her mom and dad. Funny thing is she had more hair than he did. Not only was he there when you were born, he also made it to your first birthday. He passed away a month later; I know you may not remember him, he loved you. I also know that no one can take his place, I'm glad you have your other grandpa's and Poprock that love you too!
Happy Birthday little girl!

I love modern technology. I really love to be on the computer when it suddenly reboots itself and then comes up with a great message like "39% of hard drive missing", what? So suddenly you find yourself becoming a rocket surgeon and trying to remember everything you have ever known about a computer...wait....I program in COBOL...where are my key punch cards and where should I stick them (ha ha). Oh, restart computer, follow the prompts, try the fixes, here's a good one, buy this to fix that problem, oh no....blue screen of death....what the hard drive is now missing...? Breath deep the fragrance of new electronics, (is that smell carcinogenic?) who cares! New tower, that goes zippy fast, better video and graphics card, which makes large flat screen monitor look even better, what is this some new software (can't wait to start playing with Photoshop), two new games (have already mastered one) and a totally smoking deal on a new printer that prints amazing photos. Oh yes one happy girl. Don't tell Poprock, cause she's even more excited about this then him.

There was a rainbow the other day over our backyard. I love rainbows.
