Still In My Pocket

After the Paint Me Rad 5k Saturday

Having two daughters in college and one a senior in high school means that if I was so inclined, I would have enough material to publish nothing else.

First born, Kelliann probably has fewer mentions on the blog than her two sisters. Between finishing her nursing degree, working nights at Aiken Regional ED and hanging out with her boyfriend, Daniel, I do not get to see her all that often. Like I have stated before, I would love to go to the hospital to follow her around taking pictures of her working in the Emergency Department, but my guess is it would take just a few short minutes before security were escorting me out of the building.

But, this weekend, Kelliann (aka “KA”) gets two mentions in as many days!

For the last seventeen years (probably five or six different wallets), I have carried with me a note that KA wrote for me when she was seven years old. I had the sense to laminate it and it has held up better than I have over the years.

Sometimes it is the simple things that matter the most…

Kelliann (R) along with Elissa and Chip, who may have been the best dog the world has ever seen. This would have been taken about the time she wrote the note.

    just awesome, Ray…nothing else to say.
    I am grateful for the reminder–my twins are 7, and memories are created daily.
    Over a cold one, we could debate Chip and his competitors for best dog the world has ever seen.
    Stay well, my friend!
