Memories are made of this/ Happy Birthday Nick

August 19th,  my favorite Auntie Ang Jacklovich Steblay would have had a birthday. Born in 1914 she would be 101!  That is unbelievable! It seems like yesterday that she was riding in my car and we were laughing and talking and she was teaching me many life lessons. This was on her wedding day. She wore the loveliest suit and was was a woman ahead of her times. She was very unconventional. This was one of her siblings, her sister Anna Jacklovich Predolich, the grandmother of my dear friend Rob.He grew up in Bojon town right with me and not too long ago he shared this photo on Facebook for Throw Back Thursday:
Oh my goodness, Rob was a little fellow and I was not that much older. I treasure this photo and am so grateful for him for sharing it with me from so long ago. I noticed the Christmas decorations in the background, including that cool cardboard fireplace. Rob's mom Anna and her mom decorated so wonderfully. Many nice memories with the Predolich phamily on Santa Fe . Their neighbor Rose Blatnik and her son Buddy were the nicest folks. Rose made the most beautiful dolls from dish detergent bottles and dressed the in the most magnificent clothes. I have one somewhere around here. On the other side of them was John Mihelich's grandmother and aunt Jane  Dolgan. Beside their house was Uncle Bear's filling station and then his home with Auntie Gela. I know cousin Jeannie told me Uncle Bear built their first home on Hill Place and later the Glavich family lived there but my sister and I were reminiscing and she was very young but remembers either a two story house or an apartment building on the corner of Mesa and Santa Fe and Chico who worked for cousin Danny at the filling station lived there at one time with his phamily. Maybe cousin Jeannie or Mike can fill in a few blanks on that 1144 S Santa Fe property.

22 years ago today these are words I heard from my doctor at four o'clock P.M. Nicholas Carl Robinson made his entance into this big ole world. He has given us many years of countless joys, we have suffered trials and happy moments and are very proud of him and the young man he has become.
Nick loved watching this program when he was small. I have kept all the books and memories from the days of Arthur the Aardvark!
Running became Nick's passion (orange) and he ran two years with the Cowley College Tigers and ran in NYC at the Armory in the Track and Field Nationals 2014. He has a two year degree from this little school which was a huge blessing for us when Nick first headed to college.

Nick was a little fellow sitting with Santa long ago. Where does time go?  In the memory file hidden inside our hearts and minds that is where II know it must go.

Nick was on top of the world at Chautauqua Park this summer hiking with his big sister Rebekah and nephew Colton.
Nick loved Easter and those chocolate bunnies. He was about two years old here.
Nick and I enjoying Colton Edward, our tiny grandbaby June 7, 1996. Nick was going to turn three.
Nick, in his Kentucky Wildcat Blues with Bret, Hannah, Brittany and Jeremy. Noelle fondly calls this photo the Larry's....if you knew Jeremy you would know who Larry is!
I hope you enjoyed this Bojon Heritage post today. I am going to try to keep writing as long as you come back and read. Have a wonderful day. This is for Ms. Jenny and those participating in the letters "M" for memories are made of this and the letter "N" for Nick.

Happy birthday to your son Nick. What wonderful photos and memories. If you find your soap bottle doll, do take a photo. I'd love to see it.

I don't have any of my things that I had saved from childhood. We lost all this stuff years ago. However, the memories live on.

Now I must get busy and finish making my grocery shopping list. Hopefully, we can go shopping when Joe gets home from work. If not, I may have to go by myself. I really need to pick up more Merlot yarn so that I can finish up this afghan.

You have a super day, hugs, Edna B.

'Hope I'm not too late to wish Nick a very 'Happy Birthday' ... and a fabulous (fiscal) new year!

These photos are great, as usual. That one with you and lil' Rob? You sure remind my of a young Hayley Mills from the (olden) movie, Parent Trap!
