On 01.02.02, I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. Too late for surgery, I had chemotherapy, which failed. In May the chemotherapy was changed and I was soon in remission which was celebrated and welcome and lasted nine years - until October 2011. There was progression in 2011 so more treatment was indicated and I am now back in partial remission. But I'm not only a cancer patient - I also enjoy my family, walk my dogs and am learning to draw and paint. Life is good!

Watch your head!

Youngest Daughter, First-Born Dog and I just returned from two nights at Samuel P. Taylor State Park. It's about 15 miles west of San Rafael, California and quite close to the coast.

This particular park is quite popular, but it was our first time there in over 30 years. We snagged the very last site - and a good one too!

It was a chilly venture - about 42ºF. the first night - and we didn't have the best equipment for that so we were cold. But last night was cozier - both from the hot chocolate and s'mores and the better weather.

The one bit of excitement occurred Sunday. Suddenly, in the middle of dinner, we heard the loudest crash -- like a sonic boom -- and the earth shook! Earthquake? No. A giant coastal redwood had crashed down somewhere nearby. Redwoods are the tallest trees on earth and when one of those comes down, you better be out of the way!
