by | Thursday, January 8, 2009 |

there has been some interest in carly expressed so i thought i'd give a little update.  in a nutshell she's, well, a nut - not like your run-of-the-mill peanut or pecan - we're talking a full blown filbert.  she & speck are a two lady wrecking machine, although neither of them are very ladylike.  carly is delightful and goofy and strange and hysterical all in one extremely gangly body.  she and i are currently having one small issue - if i pay any attention to her (which...

joining the 21st century

since it's the start of a new year dave & i thought we would give the 21st century a shot - you know facebook, twitter, flickr, you tube, oh my.  i've created a facebook account, although i'm still not sure i see the point - do i need the world to know how many friends i have?  send a friend request my way if you feel so inclined.  dave is currently working on his flickr page - he's got a gazillion brilliant shots that i think many of you would enjoy so stay tuned for that....

amanda o’brien of the fantastically funny blabbermouse has tagged me in the seven random and weird things about me blog chain. don’t know whether to thank you or curse you, amanda, but here goes... i think soup is evil in high school i worked at friendly’s creating magnificent ice cream treats for all, none of which included toasted almond fudge - that stuff was a block of ice and no one wanted it.  one night a man came in and ordered a hand-packed quart...
