I guess that's the theme this week, for me and for Zeus. Hair, nails, pedicure, lipstick, new undies (well, for Zeus it was just hair and nails)... you know, gotta get looking presentable for the family reunion this weekend in North Carolina. This photo was taken of one of the ladies at Zeus' groomer; she actually doesn't work on Zeus, but she did Zorro and Waldo before him. She has cancer and isn't doing very well.
My mom's family will be meeting for the 40th annual reunion since "Papa Cobb" died. Only the youngest two of the original eight brothers and sisters is living, my mom and her baby brother; she has non-Hodgkins lymphoma, and he has a rare and fatal lung disease. It's sad, missing my aunts and uncles who have died, but it is great that I have such a large extended family, and that I know my cousins, and their kids know my kids. I've been to every reunion but a handful.
Oh, and today is my mom and dad's sixtieth wedding anniversary!! Happy anniversary Dad and Mom!
