Bobbie has a new grandson

I meant to post here for my mom's birthday (March 16), which my husband, son and I celebrated by sprinkling some of her ashes in Big Sur, CA. It was a lovely day; and thanks to my mom, a final opportunity to be there before we moved east to Massachusetts. -- that day, just before we were to drive home, there was a major landslide that blocked the road causing us to have to drive hours out of our way to get back. It was not fixed for weeks and weeks - until after we were out of time to visit - and was joined by other slides in the meantime. If it weren't for mom's birthday, we'd not have been in Big Sur on a random Wednesday in March and we would have missed saying goodbye to our beautiful coastline.

I also meant to post here on Mother's Day, when the memorial brick to be placed at Leaming's Run Garden was finished. Though I have yet to see it in place, the pictures I received of it look lovely. You can see it on my blog here.

And I meant to post here on the one-year anniversary of her passing in June. On that day, also Father's Day this year, my siblings were scattering the last of Bobbie's ashes on my father's grave in New York.

Finally, I am posting here. Four's the charm, I guess. On August 5, I had a little boy named Rhys who will depend on my stories and those of his big brother and others to know his grandmom. You can read his birth announcement here.

Thanks for reading and for remembering with me. Kitty
