Hey all, look, my login still works! :-)
No, I’m not dead, not even close. Just got the new baby and all, plus getting ready to move to a new position at work (I get bored eas…. OHHHH Shiny!).
Anyway, your future Benign Dictator of All Mankind is doing well, growing like a weed – 9 months old and already almost 22 lbs, and as tall as a lot of older kids. If he is anything like his maternal uncles, he is gonna be a bruiser (my wife’s uncles are big guys). Crawling all over the place, pulling himself up to anything he can get a grip on, and then letting go to see how long he can stand free. Doesn’t want us to feed him, because Damnit!, he figured out the pincer grasp & he can feed himself. Just pile the food in front of him and let the dog in for clean-up duty (dog is gonna get fat….).
Cute as shit too, with a smile that just charms the pants off of every woman he sees. Which can be problematic, because really, some women need to keep their pants on – no one wants to see that.
Anyway, just wanted to pipe up, announce my continued existence, and probably disappear again for another 6 months. One of these days things will settle down & I’ll contribute content again. Hopefully before he leaves for college.
PS – Adam Smith, Member of Congress from WA, is an idiot (I just got his letter in response to my “you vote no on the AWB, or I vote no on you” email – he’s not a bright one).
