IS NO NEWS GOOD NEWS?
It has been nearly a year since the last entry.
Katie has not lost any of her baby teeth yet, and they are no looser. The dentist isn't worried, but I think a six year old needs a nice gap in her uppers to look like a six year old is meant to look.
Ok well, the tooth fairy probably needs a government bailout anyway.

KATIE'S GROWING UP
Yesterday Lila took her to the dentist for a regular checkup, and they were told that two of her teeth were just barely starting to loosen.
She is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO proud and ecstatic....she has wanted a loose tooth for at least a couple of years.
It will prove two things:
1) She really is growing up.
2) That fairies (at least tooth fairies) really do exist and are generous with money.

BLUEBERRY PICKING. 06-09-2007
Today we took a ride to the Santa Barbara Blueberry Farm at Restoration Ranch. It is on Hwy 101 right between the Gaviota tunnel and the town of Buellton. We had a great time picking berries, noshing a LOT, and enjoying the differences between the 13 subvarieties of the "Southern Highbrush Blueberries" they grow. We got there and the weather was just perfect, mid-70's with a nice breeze. Got our little pails and went out to the fields. We didn't eat as many as we picked, but we ate a lot, they are really great...some of them are as big as grapes, ripe, sweet and intense. We took home two pails worth and have been eating them by the handful....well....it is healthfood after all. They have more antioxidants than almost anything else you can eat. Anyway we will be going back very soon. They have picking from mid-May to mid-September.
OUR HOUSEWARMING CACUS IS FLOWERING!!!
This is the cactus that Alan's folks gave us as part of the housewarming gift in December 1999. It was in a 6 oz. bowl and was about as thick as a thumb and had the length of a pinky finger. As you can see, 7 1/2 years later, it has seven babies and is flowering for the first time ever....we are thrilled.....
Thanks again, Buby and Zady.
