Here's Granny the birthday girl wearing the earrings Grandpa gave her for her special birthday.
Sunday, October 28, 2012 - HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOTHER!  I've been so busy all day long that I didn't have time to put up the link to Mother's birthday pictures.  And some of these pictures are really old.  haha
     Here's the link:
     Let me see if that works.  I'm trying to recall it from memory.  djb

Here's Aunt Liz with Uncle Ron and Andrew and Jarrett at the Eby picnic at Lions Park in Elburn, circa 1991
Friday, October 26, 2012 - HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AUNT LIZ!!  I hope you have a GREAT boofday, Aunt Leez.  That's how the boys said her name when they were little.  Oh yeah, and Uncle Juan.  haha
     I just checked the temperature in Illinois - it was 37 degrees.  It's 74 degrees in Florida right now at 5:28 a.m.  Yikes!  Much prefer the warmer one.  Although, we are enjoying wind and rain courtesy of Hurricane Sandy. 
     Too bad we can't go to Rosita's and you could wear the sombrero.  Wait a minute...I have that picture somewhere.  oh yeah, on my website.  Here is the link to the Birthday Page for Liz:

Here's Alan 23 days before his 3rd birthday hugging his sister on her birthday.
Tuesday, October 23, 2012 - HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ALAN!! Since I'm not on my own computer that has all of my photos, I'm putting this one in here just for fun on Alan's birthday.  This picture cracks me up because we were all so young then.  And I love the stairstep arrangement of us kids.  If you ever read this, Alan, I hope you have a great day.
     Here's the link to Alan's birthday page on Andrew and Jarrett's website:
      And if he were here, we'd sing loud and out of tune, Happy Boofday to YOU.  enjoy ~djb

Stella and John O'Malley - 50th wedding anniversary portrait - October 19, 1954
Friday, October 19, 2012 - Happy 108th anniversary to Grandma and Grandpa O'Malley.  Wow!  That's a long time ago.  Even though I was only 5 at the time, I do remember their 50th anniversary.  Yeah, it's a little vague in my memory bank and I don't have exact recall but who is going to prove me wrong, eh?  haha
     Wish they were here so we could enjoy their company.  Oh, wait a minute.  I have another picture I can put on the boys' blog of the newly married couple who I celebrated with last night... Diane and Marc.  Okay, let me go do that.  see ya later, djb

       Here's the temperature on 10-12-12 in Florida - that was last Friday.
Here's me proving I'm in Florida - notice the mailbox!
Tuesday, October 16, 2012 - This month will be half over at noon today. It's so nice to see temps in the 80s.  Before I came down, I did order 82 degrees so I got that plus one.  When I left Rockford on Friday, it was 33 degrees.  brrrr  see ya later, djb

         Sunset last night on October 5, 2012.
Saturday, October 6, 2012 - Last night, I looked out the sliding glass door on the south side and the sky was literally lit up like someone had turned on a huge bright orangey red light toward the west.  Because the evergreen trees are in the way, I couldn't get a good shot.
     This picture was taken out of the window of the car on Smith Road a few minutes later.  The brightness was fading fast.  I LOVE to see a spectacular sunset.  It was so gorgeous.  later, djb

WOW!  I just uploaded this video from my YouTube channel in about 5 seconds.  Okay, Google rocks!!!  I did not know I could do this.

Wednesday, October 3, 2012 - Because I don't have a young techie to advise me on my technical stuff, I'm generally confused most of the time.
     This new technology, which the youngsters totally take for granted, moves along at warp speed and I pretty much go the speed limit.  What am I in a hurry for?  Nothing.
     The only thing I really want is a camera on my phone.  And I think they do sell an updated version of my 9 year old phone that belonged to Andrew.  If he were here, Andrew would have the iPhone 5.  That makes me laugh.  Yeah, he'd be waiting in line for the latest model.  bye, djb
