Spirit Day

Originally posted by neo_prodigy at Spirit Day

It’s been decided. On October 20th, 2010, we will wear purple in honor of the 6 gay boys who committed suicide in recent weeks/months due to homophobic abuse in their homes at at their schools. Purple represents Spirit on the LGBTQ flag and that’s exactly what we’d like all of you to have with you: spirit. Please know that times will get better and that you will meet people who will love you and respect you for who you are, no matter your sexuality. Please wear purple on October 20th. Tell your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors and schools.

RIP Tyler Clementi, Seth Walsh (top)
RIP Justin Aaberg, Raymond Chase (middle)
RIP Asher Brown and Billy Lucas. (bottom)

REBLOG to spread a message of love, unity and peace.

Just a quick note because some have asked. Yes, we're getting a ton of rain here in Dallas and there is flooding but not in our area near Love Field.

Hope everyone else is OK!

"Our crops are saved!"

Some of you all may remember that cheesy Prell shampoo commercial (I think it was Prell) where they're shooting a movie and the woman keeps shooting the same scene in the rain saying, "Our crops are saved!"

ANYWAY, after over a month of hot, rainless weather we finally have a batch of thunderstorms moving through the area with a lot of rain. It's such a great break in the monotony. I hate the heat (so don't ask why I'm still in Texas). I envy those people who look forward to summer and live in the North where they can actually spend time outside and not risk heat stroke. Some day I want to move to the northwest and enjoy a summer like I used to when I was a kid at my grandparents' house in Connecticut.

Happy Father's Day

Happy Fathers Day to all the dads out there!

I think about my dad every Father's day and still of course miss him a lot. His birthday was the 17th of June so sometimes he got a raw deal because his birthday and Fathers Day would fall on the same day. He would have been 78 this year. I miss you, poppa, and love you.

Dennis Hopper R.I.P.

I loved his just-on-the-edge-of-crazy characters - especially his character in "Blue Velvet". Hell, I even laughed at his commercials for Ameriprise Financial when he throws the flower and yells "Wrong!". 

Sad to hear of his passing

Happy Mothers day

This is an old picture of my mom and dad when they were dating in the late 50's. As always, there's no way to fill the loss of a mom,but this year especially Robert and I have had extended family who've become new mothers and this adds a new meaning to Mothers day. So today we remember all moms - new moms, hard-working moms, grand-moms and moms no longer with us.

Love and miss you , Mom!
