This past month we shipped the last kid off to college. Tripp decided on University of Oregon. Yes, another Duck in the family. It was actually Tripp's discovery of Oregon in 2005 when he decided that was the school for him. He acted like he looked around but we knew he was going there all along.
For those of you that went away to college, can you remember your first Thanksgiving in your freshman year? I can. I was stoked to have my family around after a month or two of trying to fit in at Lock Haven! It was nice to come home where everybody was family. My Mom always made her best meal at Thanksgiving. I ate so much because it was so good. The next day we always had a soccer game on the lawn. No matter the weather!
This picture with Kraussmeyer and Fro Berg was probably from that weekend.
I wish you and your family a very happy Thanksgiving.
On Friday, November 18th, we are having a very special guest at our Holiday party. Mr. Philippe Bonay, the USA President of the Jaeger LeCoultre watch brand. Mr. Bonay is the past President of Panerai, an avid skier and a good friend. Please come by and tell him how much you LOVE Oliver Smith Jeweler! Wear your Jaegers!

I watched the first half of the SUNS game the other night... it just is not the same entertainment. The guys were playing hard but...... I'm looking forward to PAC-12 Basketball.
Save the date for our 13th annual Cars and Cigars event on Sunday December 18th!
New blood in the shopping center, dining and shopping! You have to try Drexyl, the menu and bar keep getting better!
Gold is still high in my estimation $1280/ounce. Talk mom into selling pieces she is not wearing anymore.
We continue to sell diamonds to our clients and beat the competition in the wholesale and internet market. Give us a chance, you will be pleased with the job we can do for you. Nobody beats our prices. Nobody!
Finally more bike paths going in around town. What about the green areas that you see in other cities for Bike right of ways! Let's try to be a leader in outdoor activities rather than a follower.
