Dad’s 100th birthday

Today is my Dad’s 100th birthday. Well, not really, but that’s what I call it. You see, growing up, whenever I’d ask my old man how old he was, he’s answer, “One hundred years old.” As a kid, it never occurred to me to question anything my parents told me. As a kid, I also […]

Happy Birthday, bigblu4!

A very big HAPPY BIRTHDAY goes out to bigblu4 , who is spending his big day on the East Coast this year.  Looks like he even got a present from the weather.  While it’s overcast and a little rainy, it’s nearly 60 degrees in NYC at the moment.  In fact, the weather is eerily like the […]

Under pressure

Boy, we had planned everything out so well for the wedding that I was certain that these last few days would be calm and relaxed; they are anything but.  Lots of last minute errands, lots of people in town, running around.  I can barely catch my breath.  Not in a bad way–it’s just busy. Despite having 7 […]

To the airport!

Took Dad to the airport this morning before coming into work. He was on the same flight as Mom last week. Next time we’ll see them is when they come out in about 6-1/2 weeks for the wedding.

Yankees/Orioles game

We were up around 8 AM and actually got to laze around for a while this morning. We watched most of Charles Osgood’s Sunday morning show on CBS, which is one Sunday morning program that I enjoy. Around 10:45, Dad and I hopped in the car and headed up to Camden Yards for the Yankees/Orioles […]

Road trip to Williamsburg

We took Dad to happy hour last night after work, but overall, it was an early night for us. We were up around 7 AM this morning and were on the road just after 8 AM. It took us about 2-1/2 hours to drive the 149 miles or so to Williamsburg, Virginia. Kelly and I […]

Thursday evening

Dad got into town around 4 PM and got to Pentagon City about an hour and a half later, about the same time I picked Kelly up from work. We all sat around for a while, and then headed back to Pentagon Row for dinner at Sine (where I had a blackened tuna wrap and […]

Better night’s sleep

Last night was better. We were in bed around 9:30 PM, I think, and I fell asleep pretty quickly. I was awakened at exactly midnight by the alarm clock. We put a clock on my side last night so I could actually see what time it was when I woke up. Turns out, the alarm […]

TGI trans fats?

I’m about a day behind on things here because of my lack of Internet at home. Only a few more days of this to go. Things should be back to normal on Monday or Tuesday so bear with me. Busy day at work yesterday. On the moving front, I did a few more change of […]


We were up sometime around 8 AM yesterday. Kelly finished up some laundry and then at 9 AM, Kelly, Dad and I headed up to IHOP for breakfast. Kelly was going to a play this afternoon and at about 11 AM she headed off. Dad and I left for Baltimore a short time later. We […]

Happy anniversary, Mom and Dad!

A big HAPPY 41ST ANNIVERSARY goes out to Mom (rubysnina) and Dad (bigblu4). It was just a year ago today that we celebrated their anniversary on a beach in Mykonos, Greece. Happy Anniversary, kids. I hope you have a great day!
