It has been a year now since we found out that Ray has Prostate Cancer! It has been a year of ups and downs, but as you can see Petey is keeping me sane! I was in the kitchen earlier and thinking about an idea for Petey on his tractor. Ans lo and behold and idea was born! I am going to keep you in suspense until I get it done!

Even Petey needs a day to relax at the beach! The blue boat is made from blue chocolate. I need to figure out a way to wrap it better, not a good idea to use shrink wrap. The heat from the hair dryer will melt the chocolate. If you have any ideas let me know!

A year ago I had never payed attention to Prostate Cancer until June 19, 2009! That is the day we found out that Ray has it. Allot of women are afraid to talk about it because it is so personal. But as you can see I am not a silent partner to my husband! This week we will have two dates that are important to us, the 19th for the 1st year with cancer and then on the 20th as that is the anniversary of our 1st date 27 years ago.

The walnut was chosen because of the similar size of the Prostate Gland! The Prostate is housed inside a protective sheath of tough fibrous tissue. The Romans named the tree which bears walnuts, Juglans regina- Regal nut of Jupiter or Nut of the Gods. According to Roman folklore, the gods feasted on walnuts while their lowly subjects subsisted on lesser nuts such as acorns, beechnuts, and chestnuts. Walnuts were thrown to Roman wedding guests by the groom to bring good health, ward off disease and increase fertility. Young boys eagerly scrambled for the tossed walnuts, as the groom's gesture indicates his passage into manhood. http://www.yananow.net/troopc.htm#index
