Avon Walk for Breast Cancer

Why? Just a few days ago I went for a haircut and was reminded about why I'm walking in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. My hairdresser, Angela, has been diagnosed with breast cancer. She is without health insurance and as if living with the knowledge that she has cancer isn't enough, she's living with the loss of her mother and one sister who lost the fight against breast cancer. Tulsa Project Woman gave her some complimentary testing and now she's receiving treatment with the help of governmental aid. But it's organizations like Avon and this walk that continue to support women who cannot pay. For that, I am grateful.
If you have any interest in supporting this cause and my fundraising efforts, you can visit And thank you to Jen for inviting me, to Kelly for inviting her and for Amanda and Jill who were brave enough to join in on the fun!

11 Years of Togetherness

Doc and I recently celebrated our 11 year anniversary. In some ways, it's hard to believe it's been so long and then again, it sort of feels like just the beginning. He says it feels like 52 years...I think he's counting in dog years.

We went back to the same restaurant where we celebrated our 1 year anniversary and spent the evening at the same hotel. We spent the morning taking a nice walk at LaFortune park. It was sort of like we weren't even in our own home town. I'm not really sure what's happened to the Warren Duck Club. That restaurant used to be the place to be but we ended up being at only one of a few occupied tables. Well it was the thought that counts...

So, here's to his parents and mine who have successfully mastered many decades of matrimony!
