Made weak by time and fate,
but strong in will;
To seek, to strive, to find, and not to yield.

Side Note:
The fork. or Also known as "A Dingle-hopper" Reminds me of one who not only had amazing hair (that I would pretend I had as I swam in our pool as a young girl) but also for me represents a young woman who loved learning about everything and anything. Who pushed past barriers and boundaries to find her place in this world. In this industry education is key and you are always always learning. Everyday! And with that requires perseverance to reach goals. The industry of beauty is all about testing, pushing and surpassing barriers and boundaries. This industry is truly SWEET!!!!

This is for the Gibbens!

I thought you guys might enjoy these pics. I took these at the home of a friend of my Grandpa Allen's. This huge "game" room was filled wall to wall. This is one of 4. I figure you guys might have a room like this someday. It was truely amazing. Like a museum. When can you get up close and personal with any of these types of animals with out getting eaten!
GRRRR. Scary! This one is my favorite.

The kids loved the elephant. There were also stools made from the elephants feet. I guess the meat from a lot of these animals was given to the locals for their food supply. I thought that was nice considering.
And the best ever......

"You wanna pet my monkey?!"
This one has been blow'n up to an 8x10 and framed with this quote. It is passed every Christmas as a rotating white elephant gift among Branden's family. It honestly was the best white elephant gift we've ever done!
