First Post of the New Year

And January is almost over.  We’ve been busy, but for the most part really boring stuff.  I’ll try to give you some of the highlights to bring you up to date with the Huber’s and Pearl.

Yes Pearl is still with us.  Some days are better than other, but we don’t think she’s in a lot of pain.  So we’re continuing to baby her here in Laguna Woods, where she has no steps and nice green grass.

We spent New Years Eve day with Matt, Suzanne, and William Jaxson.  He’s growing so fast.  Here’s a picture from the day.










Jeni was still visiting from AZ, so she got into the action.  That evening we went to Temecula to celebrate our niece Katie’s 30th birthday.  I can’t remember when I was thirty it was so long ago.

Jeni headed back to AZ, and we settled into a new routine in the Village.  I’m still working at the computer workshop and the Photography lab, but I’ve also added teaching a basic Windows 7 class for 5 weeks.  Linda is still beading twice a week, but she has also volunteered to do income taxes under the AARP umbrella for senior citizens here in the village.

We both celebrated our birthdays during January, and on the weekend Jeni came over to be with us.  Matt, William Jaxson, and Jeni surprised us on Friday, 1/15, here at our place.  The birthday present they shared with us was a special professional photo of Pearl, alone and with us.  She came to our condo with lights, backgrounds and cameras and took a lot of pictures.  We’re anxious to see how they came out.

On Saturday we all headed to San Diego to go to the Zoo.  Linda and I are very fond of zoos, and we hadn’t been to the San Diego Zoo in 30 years.  Here we are getting ready to tour around.


This is the first big outing for us with William Jaxson and we had a ball.  And he was the best behave 3 month old in the entire zoo.



They have a lot of new exhibits which was very exciting.  Here’s the Panda’s:



The new Polar Bear exhibit:



Here are some good shots of the lions:



And the Koalas.  This was just before the zoo closed, so the lighting isn’t that good, but they’re so cute:



Here’s the last picture of the day:

So now you know what’s been going on.  I promise to post at least once a week to keep you up to date.
