Like Mother, Like Son

James helps Jae put up a shelf for him to hang his coats on. What he says as he is running by right at the end is, bubble, which is what he calls the level.

I had one shot left on the roll of film. That is a drawback of film. Not bad, though. Pumkin carving at Jae's folks house. He enjoyed it until we took them out in the dark and put candles in them. Then he was terrified.

I think his Mom enjoyed it ;-)

Toni is gone



I don't know any details except that she passed away at 12:46 PM yesterday. I had my phone off yesterday when her parents tried to call and tell me, so I found out later via text message. She was a very alive person. Liked to have fun, had a tendency to get into trouble, was a real sweetheart to me and my family. A day for grieving.

Me!!!!

I was sitting here trying to do a little Flickr, and James ran up and wrapped both arms around my leg and yelled, "Me!" I guess we'll go to the park instead. I'll take the camera.

Little Mister Can Do

Today when Jae and James got home from grocery shopping, James was taking items out of the bags, carrying them into the pantry, and putting them on the first shelf (the only one he can reach). Tonight as I was giving him a bath, he took the wash cloth and made a valiant effort at washing himself. This weekend while we were outside and had the garage door open, he brought a mop out of the garage and vigorously mopped the driveway.

Yet another bosque sunflowers picture, Josh style. It had been a rough day, and in between work and dinner out with family, I stopped in the Bosque for little walk. Just before dusk. Did me a world of good. Had my camera.

Last evening James noticed the moon. That might be the first time. At least its the first time I've noticed him notice the moon.

Jae caught this moment to share with my Mom. My Mother is a very fine quilter. I still have the one she made me. This is the one she made James. He's sitting on it pointing out all the bunnies. He sleeps with every night now that its gotten chilly.

Things James learned yesterday

A. We taught him, when you are down, eating cupcakes makes you feel better.

B. He learned on his own, unscrewing the water hose for the toilet is FUN.

A stick in the pocket

Today, for the first time we think, James put something in his pants' pocket. This is partly because most of his pants, don't have real pockets. I hadn't thought about it before, but today he was wearing some toddler cargo pants out in the yard. We brought him in to change his diaper, and found he had a stick in his pocket.

Walking with assistance

He's starting to do this without assistance, but not enough to catch him on video, yet. Here he walking with assistance from Jae.

Home Guard


Home Guard, originally uploaded by Josh Gentry.

I published this one to Facebook with the title, My Hero. On my Flickr stream its titled, Home Guard. She is those things, and more. In many ways we've become adults together. She's got my back. I've got hers. In her transition to the role of Home Maker, she amazes me.

Occasionally I publish something on Flickr that I feel might be "too sexy" for my blog. If you click on this picture it'll take you to my Flickr stream, and there are two more pictures of Jae with sword. I like them, but they fall in that category. Your call.

1st Birthday

Today is James' 1st Birthday. Jae did a bang up job of organizing his first party. At the restaurant attached to the aquarium. Us, Priscilla, David, Lorraine, Mary and Max. Carrot cake with cream cheese icing, vanilla ice cream. James had macaroni and cheese. James got probably too many presents, many with a music theme. I believe all of them make noise of some kind or another. He still has a few to open, since there was a limit to what was reasonable to do at the restaurant. Jae and got him a combination xylophone/piano thingy.

There's water in the canyons

Nasty weather here.


Hold On Real Tight

There's water in the canyons
And rain up in the hills
There's a rushing in the rivers
And lovers stranded up at the old mill

Wrap your arms around your baby
Hold on real tight
Ward against the Devil's laughter
And the witching light

There's a wind in the willows
And the sun gutters like a torch
Shadows race across the prairie
And silouettes watch from the porch
There's rain on the tin roof
And the creaking of the swing
Two bodies warm the chill evening
Water in the gutter sings

Wrap your arms around your baby
Hold on real tight
Ward against the Devil's laughter
And the witching light

The old mill leaks like a sieve
And the roads are turned to mud
Wet hair hangs in her eyes
And rain pounds in your ears like blood

Wrap your arms around your baby
Hold on real tight
Ward against the Devil's laughter
Beware the thief in the night

There's water in the canyons
And rain up in the hills
There's a rushing in the rivers
And lovers stranded up at the old mill

Wrap your arms around your baby
Hold on real tight
Ward against the Devil's laughter
And the witching light

Sharing with Mommy

Usually it occurs to me to make these videos when its just James and I hanging out. Jae, of course, spends by far the most time with him and is fabulous with him. This video is extra nice because it was a time when Jae was there.

It's only the giving that makes you what you are



I know most of you who read this blog are either shavees or will have already pledged another shavee. That's cool, I'm not looking to reach those who are already participating. But if you haven't given yet, and you find it in your heart and pocket book to do so, there is not better cause. Click the image above to go to my shavee site.

I've just assumed that you know what St. Baldrick's is. From www.stbaldricks.com:


St. Baldrick's is the world's largest volunteer-driven fundraising event for childhood cancer research. Thousands of volunteers shave their heads in solidarity of children with cancer, while requesting donations of support from friends and family.

At a St. Baldrick's event, something amazing happens. People who normally shy away from the very thought of childhood cancer find themselves compelled to support this cause after looking into the face of these brave children who are smiling broadly as their friends and family members proudly display their newly shorn heads.

Volunteers and donors see it can be fun to support a serious cause. Young cancer patients and survivors see how many people care. And researchers see St. Baldrick's funds helping to find cures!

Is it nap time?

James is getting his first tooth. We think that's why he hasn't been sleeping well. Today I'm just exhausted, and not feeling up to dealing with life. I hope that's the reason for the funk I'm in. Life + tired.

Musical finds

I'm enjoying the Pandora video series.

Yes, its another Singer/song writer singing about Texas. But this one is Australian. Fred Smith and his song, "Texas."



I had trouble deciding which of the Sean Hayes songs to post. The scales tipped to this one on the line,
"Here the sparks in your mind, building flames for to trace your desire"
