Second Childhood

the little hoop

One of the best things about having a very little kid as an older parent is getting to re-experience all the most fun parts of childhood: getting a new toy, visiting Santa and the Easter Bunny, etc.

The little guy will be coming home from nursery school to see this one, and I can’t wait.

Smile Around The Face

I’m visiting my sister’s family in the Cleveland, Ohio area. We just put a severe hurt on turkey and trimmings, and now I’m indulging with a spot of peach cobbler and my birthday cake, which my wonderful niece Taylor was nice enough to bake for me. I’d ordinarily be linking to some action shots on Flickr but I left my camera on the dining room table so you’ll have to just imagine us all sprawled across the family room in tryptothan torpor. There are worse ways to be.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow yanks and, um, happy Thursday to the rest of y’all.

The Sun Isn't Up Yet

A traveling salesman was driving past a farm when he saw a pig with three
wooden legs executing a magnificent series of backflips and cartwheels.
Intrigued, he drove up to the farmhouse, where he found an old farmer
sitting in the yard watching the pig.
“That’s quite a pig you have there, sir” said the salesman.
“Sure is, son,” the farmer replied. “Why, two years ago, my daughter
was swimming in the lake and bumped her head and damned near drowned, but that
pig swam out and dragged her back to shore.”
“Amazing!” the salesman exlaimed.
“And that’s not the only thing. Last fall I was cuttin’ wood up on
the north forty when a tree fell on me. Pinned me to the ground, it did.
That pig run up and wiggled underneath that tree and lifted it off of me.
Saved my life.”
“Fantastic! the salesman said. But tell me, how come the pig has
three wooden legs?”
The farmer stared at the newcomer in amazement. “Mister, when you
got an amazin’ pig like that, you don’t eat him all at once.”
