Hello again...

Some of you may have missed me. Some of you may have forgotten I ever existed...regardless, I am still here, although I have not had much time or felt the inclination to blog lately. 


Since the fall, I have spent a majority of my time and energy into my son's skateboarding. I became involved in a parent group that saved our big skate park from city budget cuts. You can read some of our press in the local paper, the bay area news channels and even ESPN.

I even went and spoke to the city council about how my son's life has improved since he started to skate at Lake Cunningham.




Anywho...we won the battle and a lot of charities have stepped up to help support the skate park. 


Now for some personal details...


I have still been planning Booze Broads and Hotrods with the Bombshells. We have a big announcement to make soon, and it is exciting! I am planning on going to Viva and I went to Long Beach to attend the Inspiration show on the Queen Mary and the Rose Bowl Flea. I forgot that Alameda is better for clothes than Rose Bowl, but I digress. I bought a great Cowichan sweater from my buddy Lloyd and had a good visit with my friend Lucky in Long Beach. I also got to hang out with Dorian and Mike at the Rose Bowl. 


Here's a few photos:

I have some more big news, but I will wait until next week to announce it. A few of my good friends know, but let's say that I have landed my dream job! 

Cheers until next time...I swear I won't stay away so long again.

So happy you are back! My 15-year old nephew skates too! It has really boosted his confidence and it has given him a wonderful sense of grounding. GREAT pic of your son!

Nevertheless, so glad you are back! Missed you, gal!
