I want to introduce you folks to my beautiful daughters. Kelly 26, Robyn, 24, and Morgan 23. (I know! What can I say? ...we lived in the north in the early 80's and didn't have cable TV!) Anyways, they are awesome girls and great to have around. Especially all at once.

I've posted pictures on the "expessions" page of my profile. A feature which Craig has made good use of and that can help us to get to know each other a little better! I hope others will post family pictures, pets, or "favorite things"!

Here in Canada we celebrate Thanksgiving this weekend. I'm so lucky to be a Dad!!

With thanks... Rob; in Vancouver

And not only are you lucky to have three amazing girls, but you get to live in Vancouver for crying out loud! Lucky duck!

Are you on Facebook? I haven't really figured out how to put more pics on here and have trouble even changing my photo on here.

peace, emily

Vancouver! Sometimes you feel a little like a duck living here!

Facebook... no it seemed like to much work to keep up. I kept getting these lame applications and game invites. I finally quit in disgust when I saw that I only had 8 friends and Barack Obama had 45,899,234,764,851 friends! Sheeesh!

I prefer the more authentic community that this board seems remarkably able to offer.

The expressions page works well. Keep trying.

Rob,you lucky guy!You know,in China,we always say daughter is parent's fluffy jacket, because daughters are always very closed to parents and make parents feel warm.So you got three fluffy jackets,you lucky guy,this keeps you more than warm enough in Canada!Enjoy your Thanksgiving!

They are such beautiful girls and look so much alike. I can see why you are so proud of them. They are so much a part of you and just be proud you have such wonderful children to be a part of your life. Wow, you are so blessed.

Oh Rob, Your girls are beautiful. Wow, I know whenever you get down all you have to do is think about them and you start getting that fighting spirit back. I'm at my daughters and I'll have her show me how to put pictures up. Beautiful. Children are a blessing.

God Bless You Rob, I really appreciate your posts.

All beautiful with great smiles! (I wonder who they take after?) jejeje

The real "telling tale" will be if they all have birthdays September and October - then we will know how you keep warm in Canada...

Happy Thanksgiving - you have much to be thankful for with your beautiful family.

You know it Bruce. With so much in the bud it is impossible to ever imagine giving up. And I'm not ready for letting go quite yet either!

I don not tire yet of this life.

And they seem very close! I agree that you're lucky to live in Vancouver. I was there once in 1994 while hitching my way to Alaska, and i absolutely thought it was the most beautiful city i'd ever seen! I've since seen more cities, and i still think Vancouver is the best. (The Canucks won the championship that year, and we got caught right in the middle of a town gone wild)!

I can't say i'm unhappy to live in San Diego! Especially now that's it's cooled WAY down! It is very beautiful here this time of year.

Hugs,
Krista

Vancouver is a nice city, as city's go. We've lived here for the last 7 years but are really more comfortable with "small town life". I'd like to visit San Diego someday. Along with the rest of California.

Be well... Rob

That is one big and beautiful family you've got their Diane. Thanks for posting 4 generations! Handsome husband too!

Do I see 4 granddaughters and 1 grandson?

My prayers are with your son in Nicaraugua. Is he still on mission?

Peace and blessings... Rob; in Van

Well they are very pretty Rob - you are indeed blessed :)

I'm glad that you kept your "date" with them and enjoyed your birthday last week - as I said you will always remember that one as something a little more special, because of where you are at in your journey.

When you get better, you will look back to that day and realize what a true blessing it was - radiation is brutal but you are handling it so perfectly - and I am proud of you.

I told folks at the party what you said. "Go ahead and plan the party. If you can't make it others will understand and they can still enjoy the good time!" LOL Once planned... there was NO WAY I was going to miss my party!

Thanks Craig. Rob; in Vancouver

Yes... we celebrate with a great turkey feast. Much like our friends to the south. Does this sound familiar to you. Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, turnip, brussel sprouts, yams, cranberries, and (MY SPECIALTY) Pumpkin Pie!!

The girls take more after their Mom... she is their source of "absolutely gorgeous!"

Be well... Rob; in Van

It is hard not to delight in these good things. I am so glad we have these special occasions to celebrate and give thanks. Life can pass us by too quickly if we are not careful! Life is passing us by to quickly... Alas!
