On Friday February 14th we’ll have a memorial to remember my mother in law Sharon, whom we lost on February 2nd. A sad day, indeed, but we’ll take some time away from grieving to celebrate her life. I first met Sharon in December of 1983, and while I doubt that she had any inkling of […]

Twenty seven years. More detail here Dig that 1980s formal wear. Kudos to My Child Bride – she planned the event entirely. And we paid for the entire soiree ourselves. No debt was incurred.

Happy Birthday Ken!

14, Aug 2009

My younger brother Ken celebrates his birthday today. We are only 18 months apart, so as Forrest Gump put it so eloquently, we grew up like peas & carrots. The remarkable thing about my brother is how when we were younger, we were interested in so many different things, but later, we ended up interested […]

Today my big brother is celebrating his birthday in Austin TX, where he and his wife have lived since 1984. We certainly never get to see enough of them, or of their daughters. Chris is five years older than me, and consequently we never played with the same toys, only ball. Also, Chris went to […]
