Hat tip to Mocha Dad. His post partially inspired this post. One day in early 2005 I received a strange knock on our front door. The knock itself wasn’t nearly as strange as either the messenger or the message. The person at the door was a Tacoma Police Department chaplain, and as it turned out, […]

Things have been pretty quiet on the blog the past couple of weeks as we approached the birth. Though delayed, birth there was, and this is the story. Because we were past due, tests were ordered by our midwives on Friday to check on the baby. (At that point, we were 9 days past due). […]

On Saturday, JoAnn wrote about the finding of my virtual twin on twitter. As strange and cool as that was, it has been outdone: I found my long-lost half-sister on Facebook. I’d been looking on and off for a while, hoping she’d eventually pop up. And she did. Yeah, there is a long story there, […]

I assume this is something few would think about doing, and fewer still would do. But that is exactly what we did Saturday night when we attended the Tacoma Symphony Orchestra’s Sounds of the Season . [As an slight aside, the conductor, Harvey Felder, is by far the most entertaining conductor I’ve watched…]. There was […]
