Caroline, Trisha and two of our pets. I'm holding Missy, a.k.a. "Wampum
Puss," a half Siamese tabby with a very short fuse, and Caroline is
holding her new kitten, Mister, which she received as a gift for her fifth
birthday from her cousin Jenn. We also have a Scottish Terrier named
Winifred or "Winnie" alias "Pig-Dog" that does not like cats and vice
versa. Taken 17 September 2000
Update: 5 January
2002; Alas, Caroline's kitten Mister is no longer with us. She now
has a new kitten named Florida Oranges (Orrie for short), a Calico/Tabby
with a large orange spot on her head, hence her name. Caroline is enrolled
in a private Christian school and doing very well. She is in the first
grade but tested at a fourth grade level in English at the completion of
her kindergarten year. We are very proud of her.
Update: 22 May
2003; Caroline is about to finish her second year of elementary school.
She is still attending a private Christian School in our area. She is
doing very well and is an avid reader. During the winter she was
reading about one book a day, chapter books that is, not "baby" books, she
would like me to add. At right; Caroline and her baby, Orrie.
Update: 5 June 2003; Caroline received her
SAT results. All of her scores were above her grade level but she tested
highest with an 8.9 grade level in reading and 8.5 grade level in spelling
and she is only 7 years old.
We are so proud of you Caroline.
Update: 29 August
2003, Caroline is about to turn 8 years old on the 1st of September. She's
going to have a Sponge-Bob Square-Pants birthday party. We ventured
on two vacations this summer. First to Erie, Pennsylvania and Niagara
Falls, New York in June. I was able to do some research on my mother's
Blessing ancestors in Erie, yippee! Then we went to
Chincoteague, Virginia in mid-August. At left is Caroline on the beach at
Update: 27 September 2007, As many of you
know Trisha and I separated and
divorced last year. So be it,
I won't defame her as she has so often done me in the past two years. Now
for the good news, I have a
wonderful man in my life and I am very happy. This is a
picture me and Bill in Mazatlan, Mexico last Spring . We had a great time
there and are planning on going to San Juan, Puerto Rico or Hawaii
this Spring. Caroline is a big
part of our lives, she loves Bill, calls him "Billiam."
this picture, he says it is awful of him so I'll also show you the one
below. This was at the resort where we stayed.
I will also be adding Bill's ancestral lines as time permits. You all
have a great day and love someone.
Update: 6 February 2008...
Plans have changed, we are going to Cancun, Mexico the last of March. We
are saving the trip to Hawaii for my 45th and Bill's 40th birthday next
year. I can't wait for that! We are spending this Spring vacation
with Bill's sister, Lori, and her boyfriend,
Keith. I love you guys, you're so much fun to be around., :) , can't
wait to see to again. Here's a pic from last Christmas taken at a
holiday party where Bill worked. We had a blast, Caroline sang Karaoke and
brought down the house with her rendition of some current Country
favorites. Daddy is so proud of you honey!
pic of all three of us shortly before we left. Caroline received her last
report a short time ago and had 2 B's and the rest A's...
you go Biggie, Daddy loves you.
Update: 16 October 2008,
Cancun was a blast! We had great time with Lori & Keith... we all "partied
like a rock star!" We went to Playa del Carmen, Cancun and Chichen
Itza on our visit. Here are Bill, Lori and Keith at the resort where we
The day before we left we went to Chichen Itza. It was an awesome and very
spiritual place. Here are a couple of pictures of some of the ruins there.
