My Other Babies


While I prepare to see my oldest baby graduate from boot camp, I can’t leave without one last photo of my other babies–Clover’s babies. They’re doing really well, and Clover is being a good little mama. I’m going to miss them! (They will be taken care of while I’m gone.)

The Charleston Daily Mail won numerous first place finishes in this past weekend’s West Virginia Press Association awards, including the overall award for General Excellence. And! I won for Best Lifestyles Columnist! See the whole article here. Congratulations (and thanks) to the Daily Mail and my awesome editor, Monica Orosz!

    Cute babies. Congrats on the awards and have a great time with you son at graduation.

  9. SandyCWV says:

    Very cute! Congratulations on the award and enjoy graduation. Is your son at the same training facility as was his Dad? Maybe you can get a picture with your him in the same place as that one you have with him. That would be kind of cool for him to have later on.
    FWIW I think it is funny how you have started adding clarification notes to some of your posts. 😀

      Sandy, no, his dad went to boot camp in San Diego. The Navy now only runs boot camp out of Great Lakes. They used to also do boot camp in San Diego. That was a long time ago–in fact, Ross told me he showed that picture around and told people it was in San Diego and some of the guys didn’t believe him because it’s about been forgotten that the Navy used to run a boot camp in San Diego!

    LOL Now we know why I have an editor to read my documents.
    Maybe you can get a picture with your son in the same place as that one you have with his Dad. That picture would be nice for your son to have later on. There, some of my own clarification. 😕

    OMGosh! Clover’s babies are sooo cute! Do we have names yet?

    Congratulations on the award, how great is that!!! Makes all that writing and deadlines all more worthwhile :snoopy:

    P.S. My brother went through San Diego in 1990, I wasn’t thinking it was that long ago, but it’s been 20 years!
