Swearing, Blood, and Mayhem



Here is the video, as promised.
(And I feel compelled to point out that I was not responsible for the unnecessary apostrophe in "get's" - sorry, Mom.)

If You Give a Girl Earrings...

Well, another bridge has been crossed: at the ripe old age of six years and two months, Elanor got her ears pierced. Our good friend Deborah "Masker" McKenzie, who used to put holes in people for money all the time, drove up from the Metroplex to put holes in Ella's ears. Ella's Nana also got new holes in her ears, next to the old holes, but I don't have a picture of that.

There was a video made of the historic moment, full of swearing and blood and mayhem, which I'll post in a day or two.

One Small Step!

Jack just walked! It was only a few steps, but he walked, damnit.
He was standing with a hand on the oven and saw food in my hand, and walked two or three steps to where I was (at the sink), and stood with a hand on the cabinets and said (by grunting and pointing): "You have food. Give it to me now, old man."
Another milestone down.
