all for your supportive 
thoughts and comments
 this past week. 

 In case you missed the post.

is on the road to recovery and 
Jake is nursing
 some sore muscles
 that he didn't 
even know 
he had...

...after 2 days 
and 39.3 miles 
of hilly 
San Francisco 

...he crossed 
the finish line and 
still had a 
on his 

for doing this 
for your mom.

 We are
 so proud 
of you.


 had some dental surgery 
this past week.

 He had a few teeth pulled and 
some gum work done.

 It was pretty painful for awhile
 but he had pain meds and
 they seemed to help the problem.

 He also had a lump removed
 from his inner leg
 which proved to be 
just fatty tissue 
but he did have a few stitches 
and was sent home with 
the cone of shame.

So far 
he has been a good boy and 
has left his stitches alone so,
 for the time being, 
his friend, Teddy, 
is using it
 for a hat.


There have been
 whisperings and small sightings
 of the fairies
 that live at the bottom of 
the Twisted Tree.

 That may mean 
that the Magic is
 about to happen in 
the Secret Garden.

Next week, 
do you think?

THANK YOU everyone again.

    Hope Kai is better now.


  3. Hi Judy,

    Have been catching up with your latest posts; what an amazing grandson you have, such an honourable, kind and considerate young man. Bravo to him for walking in his mother's place. So glad that she is on the mend, and wishing you and your family all the very best.


  4. What a great guy and so glad his mom is doing better. And fairies!?! I want some!!

  5. Yay for Jake! What a great person he is and will continue to be as he grows into adulthood!

    I know what you are going through with your sweet pup. My Milo had several teeth pulled not long ago and he's lost a few on his own. And he had a malignant tumor removed three years ago...he's going strong! He also has fatty tumors here and there, but my vet seems to know what to biopsy. Or I hope he does!! Milo is 13...long may he run!

  6. How proud you must be of your son. What a beautiful act of love! Congratulations for making it to the end, Jake!

  7. Yay Jake! What an awesome Grand you have there, and I'm sure that his mom is proud and pleased that he has such a good heart and is so thoughtful.
    That is quite a feat, and he is a great example!

    Trying to get through summer, and keep my hair in tact... heehee... why is that time speeds up so, when we get older??
    I seem to run out of time to get things done!

    Have a great rest of your week, sweet lady.


  8. My heavens, my legs hurt just reading the distance. Congratulations Jake on making it all the way.

  9. I am so glad to hear the good news! What a strong supportive family you have, bless you all. I so enjoy your posts, my hubby and I have been vacationing in gold country for years, wish we lived there.

    1. Thank you, Judy. We have lived here for almost 30 years now. I can remember when we said those words too. It is a beautiful place and I try never to take it for granted..Have a wonderful week..Judy

  10. This is heartwarming Judy. I bet your heart is just bursting with pride for this wonderful walk your grandson made for his mom. Super special. With having my mom suffering with breast cancer twice and also now bone cancer I appreciate all the wonderful people that walk and raise money for cancer. Big hugs and kisses.

  11. Great job Jake! I am interested in seeing or hearing about the fairies!

  12. Congratulations to your grandson - that's quite a fete. Bravo!
