I was pre-occupied with other crises on Friday but I think the card we sent arrived on time. This really hit the spot of what Stvee likes. 2016 is special too. We met 25 years ago at GenCon (when it … Continue reading

Happy 13th anniversary Kim and Rad!

The wedding that preceded ours happened today. It’s one of the few weekends I wouldn’t mine being trapped in a brief Groundhog Day loop re-enjoying. Sure, Austin weather is great this time of year compared to the Midwest, where I think … Continue reading

Happy Birthday Chance!

He’s officially a teenager today! In my tiny mind, kids aren’t teens until they turn 14. Despite the -teen ending in 13, that year is the shakedown cruise period. We’ve sent him a card (late) and I’ll follow up with … Continue reading
