OMG! It’s been a whole year already

Yes, a whole year! On this day in 2015 We moved about 30 miles from San Francisco to Concord, CA and took up residence in our little trailer. What an interesting year it has been.

The pointy eared people not only adapted well, they have thrived. Of course, I suspect that they take great joy in carefully shredding our once lovely interior. Oh well, it’s what kitties do. They’re little furry little Klingons.

Then, on Labor day weekend, someone found a dog in a dumpster just before the arrival of the trash truck. The dog came home with Lastech and has been here ever since.

As the year progressed, we watched the hills turn from brown to green and back again.

We’ve managed to discover lizards, all manners of ducks, geese, hawks, strange flowers and plants.

We even came across a big rattler on one of our hikes.

To top it off, we’ve managed to look out from on top of the world, or at least our teeny little corner of it.

While we had to deal with a few emergencies, like ER visits for Lastech and Pepi, life has been good. Our lives are much better here than in San Francisco. All in all, it has been a very good year.

Wow, it’s been ten years

Ten years ago today Lastech and I got married. I can’t believe it’s been that long. Time flies when you’re having fun. ๐Ÿ™‚ Our life has been a real adventure. We have shared some great times and then there have been a few struggles. Life is like that. I couldn’t imagine sharing those times with anyone else. My last ten years have been wonderful and I’m looking forward to the next ten. When he asked me to marry him, he told me he wanted someone to share the view. We’ve done that.

Today is brought to you by the number 9

Three squared years ago, Lastech and I tied the knot. Since then we have shared magnificent views and wonderful kitties.

There has been plenty of wildlife viewing right here in the City of San Francisco.

Lastech is very patient with me when I’m yelling STOP! Actually, I try to keep it from sounding like impending doom and thus scaring the crap out of him as he’s driving. I’m not always successful. This pic is the result of one of those moments. ๐Ÿ™‚

We have even gone storm watching on Bernal Hill.

The last nine years have been wonderful and I look forward to the next nine.

Today, we hope 2013 will be a turning point for marriage equality.

We look forward to being able to wish EVERYONE a happy anniversary.

It’s Our 8th Anniversary

I met Lastech almost ten years ago. We married 8 years ago today. I have to be completely honest and say that life hasn’t always been easy, but being married has not been difficult at all. There are harder things in life than being married to your best friend.

Together we have adopted 4 kitties. We lost a sweet one to cancer, but we still have three.

In addition, we have managed to go exploring in the mountains, beaches, and parks of the San Francisco Bay Area.

Throughout all that, one of our biggest accomplishments occurred in 2008. Together, we quit smoking. Even that wasn’t enough to make us get cranky with each other. I have many words I could use to describe my life with Lastech and boring isn’t one of them.

In other words…

Love

And now for an absurd and almost annoying anniversary song by the Flintstones.
