Today is Scott Walker's birthday. He is one of my oldest friends, and by a freakish coincidence we are now related by marriages. My stepsister's husband is Scott's brother-in-law.

Happy birthday, Scott!

Every jumbled pile of person has a thinking part that wonders what the part that isn't thinking isn't thinking of.

Happy Birthday, John!

I’m an Uncle (Again)!

My youngest sister Betsy just had her second baby. Zoe Gabriella was born about 20 minutes ago, weighed 8 pounds 6 ounces and was 21 inches long. She has lots of light hair. Sounds like she looks like her mom and her grandma.

I think this is the 8th niece/nephew of mine. If you count step-brothers and sisters it's 12 or so. I'm starting to have a hard time keeping track…

It's a good Firefly-themed name, though I doubt it was intentional.

Happy Anniversary to Me

Well, me and my wife. It's been four years today. Yes, I got married somewhat later than normal. No, we've still never had an argument. Yes, she's out of town. Hey, maybe that's why we haven't argued lately…

Three Dozen

Morning watch, 7 bells (7:54 am)

Today is my three dozenth birthday. Insert lots of jolly, cheery phrases here. Last night we went to Red Robin with my dad and stepmom (I had a blackened chicken caesar salad, it was tasty!). Tonight we're going to have make-it-yourself pitas, and tomorrow we just may slip out to Brix for another Kobe Beef hamburger. Mmmm, hamburger.
