My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.

Happy Birthday, Natalie

Cricket and I just returned home from San Diego - flight 44 and 45 were very smooth -with Cricket being fabulous and no adventures on either flight. We enjoyed time with Adam, Natalie and Dahlia.
Twenty-five years ago we planned to meet some friends on the hill to watch the fireworks. Natalie had other plans for us as she came early and was born on the 4th of July! The parade, fireworks, and celebration matched our feelings as we were so thrilled to have this beautiful healthy baby girl enter our world! I was young - 20 years old and knew I would learn much from this girl! I continue to do so. Happy Birthday, Natalie. As tradition, the refrigerator is covered with pictures of you of the past 25 years. We delivered a copy of the pictures for her fridge in San Diego - so much fun!

and we do indeed continue to learn from our daughters.
