We were having dinner with my nephew the other night and the conversation steered toward his numerous relationships.

He replied with that standard chauvinistic response, "Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?"

My wife looked at him directly and retorted, "Yeah, why buy the whole pig for just a little sausage?"

My nephew stammered, "Exactly! I agree. Wait a minute..."

That's my girl.

After giving her report which mimicked the other reports to a large degree, she informed us that she felt it was time to officially put it in the record that Olivia was intellectually disabled. Go »

Knock Knock Knockin' On Morpheus' Door

Nestled in the arms of Hypnos, my daughter woke me with the sounds of retching. She is struggling with a very phlegmy cough that makes sleeping difficult for her and impossible for me.

It hasn't all been good but the majority of changes have been welcome. Go »
