Day Three -- Happy Birthday to Sherri and Susan!

August 19th is a pretty good day, when all is said and done. On this august occasion several different people have been born (pun intended), including but not limited to: my almost-twin Sherri, my sister-in-law Susan, and as of about 10 am this morning, Jude (Sam's best friend Paul's new son!).

That makes this a pretty rocking day in my book!

Sam and I went to Shawnee this afternoon to help Sherri celebrate her birthday, and I believe a good time was had by all. Still, I can't resist an opportunity to make a big deal about my sister, so I wanted to say one more time for all the world to see:


That is all.

"To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time."
--Clara Ortega


  1. Aw...thanks sweetie! =D I was so glad to see you guys. You made my day.

    ("District 9" review: Pretty good, but a bit bizarre. Not quite what I expected, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Lots of exploding.)

  2. By the way, that's an awesome quote.
