Happy Birthday Ranger!

We are remiss! If, as we estimated, Ranger and her three brothers and sisters were in the six-week age range when we found them in Utah’s Monument Valley July 11 of  2006, then that means that Ranger’s first birthday (approximately June 1 but I’m going to say May 29 because that has a nice personal ring to it and will be easy to remember in coming years) has come and gone without any official recognition.

It’s a safe bet that it ain’t no big deal to her, but just the same we won’t be so absent-minded when future anniversaries come around.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with laonstage.com, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
