All About My People

So Oskar suggested taking some time to give our people some props! And seeing how today is my mom's gotcha day this seemed like a perfect idea.

So here goes.

We live in Colorado Springs, CO, about an hour south of Denver.

So about my mom, well first of all it's her gotacha day today.  Apparently it's a big one cuz one of her cards said in dog years she'd be dead.  :-)  Actually we heard her say she's 40.  :-D

She grew up in Denver and then went to Colorado State University, about an hour north of Denver in Ft. Collins.

She has an Engineering Science Degree with a computer software emphasis.  I'm not sure what this means but I think she had to study a lot.  She also played in the marching band when she was there.  She plays the flute as her primary instrument but in marching band she played on the drum line cuz she could make more noise!    She graduated back in 1994 and then went to work for MCI.   She been in the same office for 16 years and has worked for about 5 different companies with all the mergers and sales.    Of course now a days she works at home pretty much full time which makes me VERY happy.

When mom's not working she's working out.  She runs a lot, she and favoritest Aunt Jamie did the half - marathon back in June and they are doing another one in September in Oregon.  Then in 2 weeks she doing the Tri for the Cure triathlon up in Denver.

She and dad also play World of Warcraft like some of the other blog parents.  Mom thought it was nice to know she wasn't the only mom that played!

She and dad have been together for about 3 years they met at work.

Now Dad is pretty much my favorite person.

He grew up all over the place, he's lived in Texas, Connecticut, South Africa and Japan.   He went to school at Baylor University and has a finance degree.  He took that and started working for a bank doing computer stuff.   He did some work on Y2K with Mayzie's dad and when they moved to Colorado he followed a few weeks later.  

My dad is a handy guy and really likes to work on stuff with motors.    He is spending a lot of time out in the garage working on his Jeep.   This is his Jeep in process:

He likes to work out too, but unlike mom he HATES to run.  :-)

Mom and Dad both have motorcycles and like to take them out for rides.   Sadly neither has a side car so we are forced to stay home when they do that.

This Dad's shiny bike:

And this is Mom's:

But probably the bestest thing about my people is they are mine!


  1. I think the best thing abouts your peoples is that they luv on me a lot when they come over to visit!

    Wiggles & Wags,

  2. How nice to read about your parents, Boomer. We didn't know that you live near Mayzie - do you two ever get together to play?

    Our parents lived in Connecticut too, for about 10 years, Phantom and Dakota lived there too.

    Those are nice motorcycles, but we agree, they need to get some sidecars for you.

  16. Hi Boomer - hey, thanks for dropping by to visit us. We think that Oskar's game was inspired and we had so much fun finding out about the humans behind us great doggies!

    You know, we think you've got a real cool name - how'd you come about being called Boomer? Our FH really likes it! We reckon our FH and your FH would really like each other - our FH likes to run too, half marathons are her favourite as she says they're challenging without completely breaking the body like a marathon does, he he he!

    Great to meet you - we're looking forward to following your adventures!

    Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

    Your parents sound like such great
    people! That's fun your parents
    ride bikes too. Have you ever

    sidecar, so you can
    ride along hehe.
