Full of Complex Carbohydrates and MicroNutrients

I am a novelty to many (and I'm fine with that).
I have a very silly sense of humor usually riddled with malapropisms (and I'm fine with that, too).
I ask too many questions of Life and I expect all the answers.
I trust people too easily when I shouldn't; however, I respect everyone regardless…unless they do something to make me think twice.
I don't cheat. I am tactful yet will give the truth up front (and never mean to hurt anyone's feelings with it).
I like to help the people who have helped me, and even those who have not.
I never forget... but sometimes I misplace things.
I never lose hope.
I am awesomely blessed for the people who have come into my life, and I am blessed for the people who have left because I realize I didn't need them anyway.
I honestly feel that laughter is the best medicine you can have.
I believe in being strong when everything else seems to be going wrong.
I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles. In other words, I'm human, and definitely not perfect.
But tomorrow is another day, and there's so much cheese to be had...

Happy Birthday to you, Everett...

Hey, Evvy. You would have been 41 years young today! Yes, that was me, sending you love and good thoughts over the years since you've gone. I'm still unpacking boxes of stuff here, and continuously find photos of you. I know, even after being in this cool old house for nearly 3 whole years now, I still have stuff to unpack... which will take me the rest of my life, no doubt! Remember how I used to get mad at you for being such a disorganized pack rat? Well now it's me who is the pack rat.

Here is another old pic from times gone by. It was taken when you and I drove up to Lake Tahoe for my cousin Stacy's wedding in 1994. I remember going out onto the shores of the lake around midnight, and drinking rum with you as we looked up at the starry sky. I often think of you still whenever I gaze at the heavens. 

I miss you.

Hi Caren ...

Thanks so much for your kind thoughts and words. I don't think he's completely 'gone' - as I do occasionally feel his presence nearby.
