ragtags studio central: sarah's random this & that

random means "having no definite aim or purpose," (1655), taken from "at random" (1565), "at great speed" (thus, "carelessly, haphazardly"). In 1980s college student slang, it somehow, and sadly, acquired a distinct sense of "inferior, undesirable." (Online Etymology Dictionary, Douglas Harper) Well, okay, fine, Mr. Online Etymology Dictionary person, but THIS is the 21st Century. It's a whole new ball of wax.

A Silver anniversary

26 years ago today our 4th kid and only boy, Silver Peregrine Gerety, made his appearance in this world. I got my first glimpse of his sweet face in the big old tilt-style mirror at the foot of the vintage brass bed in which he was born, in Ashland, Oregon. (For all of you detail oriented readers out there, a brass bed works fabulously when in labor. Simply grab the rungs and PUSH!)
Anyway, we love you, Silv!
Here are a few photos, then and now:
