Time for an Update...


Granddaughter Jacey & I have been to Willie's favorite dog park in Brush Prairie.

barns near the dog park
The smell of alfalfa, evergreens, cattle, and country... I probably need this more than Willie.









We went to a Hot Rods & Hot Dogs car show...













  But the Best News of All:

A post surgeries update on granddaughter, Miss B. via her mom...

July 19, 2019 Shriners Hospitals for Children, Portland OR

"She’s on the mend.... still no weight bearing or PT for another month, but everything looks good!"






August 15, 2019 at Shriners Hospitals for Children, Portland, OR

"Today was the day.... almost 7 weeks in bed and the casts are off! Lots of work left for this girl.... but she’s a tough determined lil girl!"












She has been a fighter since the day she was born.

  5. Well I seem to have missed what happened but am amazed that she is doing so well with all that surgery and etc. I had a plate and screws put in my ankle and that seemed like a lot and here she has both broken legs.

    1. Changes, She was born with cerebral palsy. This is her second major surgery on her legs. The docs are hopeful that this will give her greater mobility.

  6. Good news on your granddaughter. This is why we donate to Shriners. Such a wonderful group.

    Every time you talk about Brush Prairie it brings back so many memories as I grew up in Fern Prairie :)

    1. Rain, Shriners is an amazing place. Everyone should tour one of their hospitals and see the wonderful things they are doing for kids.

      I like Brush Prairie, it's country.

    1. Old NFO, She has PT two days a week at the hospital in Portland, which is a 45 minute drive, on a good day, from home. It will be nice when she is release to PT closer to home.

  10. What a remarkable young lady! May she heal well and go far in life!

    The car show looks like fun. I'm havin' a hoot and a holler going to the tractor and farm machinery shows, and taking The Little Guy with us. He gets excited now whenever he sees a green and yellow tractor!

    1. drjim, She got grit that's for sure. Thank you!

      There were some really strange street rods there. A few reminded me of something out of Mad Max.
