A New Grandson

William James Bailey was born 4/2/2010 in Washington State. He has a bit of an infection now... so little prayers are desired by a Grandma too far away. He is so cute, I can't wait to see him.



Big sister’s first look a little brother.

P.S. I promise to get my blog caught up soon. I'm in Pahrump, NV right now with other vandwellers and having too much fun to stay at the computer. Have found four tortoise shells here... rescued one tortoise and patched up his shell from a dog attack... and relocated him to a safer location. I check on him yesterday and he seems to be resting and sunning himself at the entrance to his new burrow. I'm fascinated by these creatures... and think they must be my "spirit" animal.

  2. Will is a week old today and has been home for a couple days. He is fine and healthy and big sister, Zoey is tenderly looking after him. (she is 25 months old).

  3. I can't wait, I can't wait, I can't wait. I'm in Washington state, again, finally. I'll get to meet Will in another week or two. Oh, boy... I'm having fun now. And to play with sweet little Zoey again. I'm one darned excited Grandma.

In 2006, I was shopping for a wheelchair. By 2007, I had new knees, better health and by 2008 a kayak. In Aug 2013, I kayaked my 49th state, Alaska, at the Holgate Glacier and in May 2014, I kayaked Hawaii, my 50th state, to celebrate my 70th Birthday and the finale to the wonderful adventure of Kayaking America? Next up... Solo Hiking the Arizona Trail, 820 miles? Maybe. Still healing from shoulder and trying to decide.
