as the years spin... by

The boy and I went to Ardy&Ed's for a burger and root beer yesterday.  I have been taking him there for twenty five years.  This year.... he took me.
Today we take him to Milwaukee for his flight back to Portland.  I miss him already.



So the years spin by and now the boy is twenty
Though his dreams have lost some grandeur coming true
There'll be new dreams, maybe better dreams and plenty
Before the last revolving year is through.      


Oh, well.

Awww, sweet! Your good lookin' boy is a very lucky young man. ...why do your posts always make me teary eyed?

We had a burger stand that looked just like Ardy&Ed's in my hometown, that is until McDonald's opened up and ran it and several other independent places out of business.

Sue....he is really a great kid... with the miracle of cel-networks, we talk constantly.

Dear Bum...Ardy&Ed's has been there since 1943 and run by the same family since 1957... car hops on roller skates... and one of the best burgers around town.

He takes after you, okjimm! I wish you both weren't so far from each other.

i know it's difficult to say goodbye, even for a while, but take heart in that he still wants to take his dad out for a burger.

SD, Nonnie....

I miss him already. I did a quick preview of some of the shots he did at the wedding he video-ed... can't wait to see the complete video!!!
