Last January, we adopted Rio, a wonderful golden retriever. Here's our first picture of him, at the Homeward Bound rescue facility:
Amanda is one of the "flyers" on Analy High School's varsity cheerleading squad. They won second place in the regional competition today in their division.
My wife Irene and I recently spent a week on the east coast, starting in Washington DC for my newphew Oliver’s wedding, and ending in Bennington, Vermont.
Along the way, we spent a couple days in Philadelphia, where my mother grew up. The major historical sites were closed, thanks to our dysfunctional government, so we decided to pursue some personal history.
Clearly, the people who designed the 1959 house we bought last year did not share my priorities.
Not a single room in the house had a door to the back yard, and all the windows facing the yard were two-foot-high windows that started five feet above the floor.
