Loved and Adored: I Know, Right?!

Loved and Adored: I Know, Right?!

The screensaver on my computer rotates randomly through the photos in my "Pictures" folders. Needless to say, many (most) of these pictures are of Jack. Many times I'll be passing by the laptop or sitting down to do something and be captivated by the photo on the screen. "Awwww, look how cute you were!"

This morning I caught a photo of Jack's first haircut. "Awwww, look how cute you were!"

"Yeah, yeah," groans Jack. "You always say that. Why do you have so many pictures of me when I was a baby?"

"Because you are loved and adored!" I told him.

ROSEVILLE, CA - The eleventh annual Wild Bill's Tattoo-a-Thon was held in Roseville on Saturday from 8 a.m. to midnight with 100 percent of the day's proceeds going to the UC Davis Children's Hospital.

30 tattoo artists volunteered to work 16 hours straight with all of their proceeds, including tips, benefiting the hospital.

According to Wild Bill's owner, Bill Hill, last year's event raised more than $15,000, with artists tattooing and piercing more than 100 people for charity.

To date, the event has raised approximately $125,000 for the Children's Hospital.

In recognition of the shop's efforts, the hospital named part of the new pediatric intensive care unit after Wild Bill's.

Carmichael woman reported missing

CARMICHAEL, CA - The disappearance of a Carmichael woman last seen on security camera video at an Indian casino Wednesday night is being called highly unusual by the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department.

Deputy Jason Ramos said Melodie Benton, 55, is considered at risk because no one has heard from her and that is very out of character with her usual behavior.

Benton is Native-American, 5 feet 3 inches tall and about 150 pounds. She has long, straight, black hair and brown eyes.

When seen at the Red Hawk Casino in Shingle Springs about 8 p.m. Wednesday, Benton wore a bright green vest over a black turtleneck top and a black hoodie with white trim. She appeared to be alone, Ramos said.

Benton's car is a red and silver 2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo, California license plate number 4XOS962. There's a black Tasmanian devil decal on the driver-side rear quarter panel.
