  • The Baby Fell Out!

    The baby fell out!

    Into the waiting arms of a doctor.  Just as planned.  But still.  It felt very dramatic.

    Look what Jeff and Kim made.


    They done good.

    So good.

    This very proud auntie is happy to introduce you to my newest nephew.

    Congratulations to Jeff, Kim and the baby’s big sister and big brother!

    And the time when I was 13, and my brother was 10, … Continue Reading “Sisters”

    You know that Sesame Street song, One of These Things Is Not Like The Others?

    I like that song.

    On a completely unrelated note, after I posted this photo last week of my sister-in-law, Kim…

    my brother (who’s coincidentally Kim’s husband), sent me this message:


    Could you please replace the image of Kim on the recent post with this EXACT, UNALTERED copy?  No reason.  Thanks!


    Since I’m always happy to comply with my … Continue Reading “Jugstaposition”
