Thursday was Jessica’s 11th Birthday, and on Saturday a group of 20, including 11 of Jessie’s best friends, went out to dinner at Fridays. Afterwards we all trooped back to the LaPreta Residence for presents and merriment. A few of her friends stayed for a sleepover.

Phaedra and I spent the evening we got back from Miami, in making up what we missed by going south (I wish we could merge both events together). The company of Eva, Anthony, Mattie, Jessica, Ben, and Rachel. The excellent food (from both eve’s dinner of seven fishes & day’s dinner of meats). The liquor. The laughter. The birthday cake (Phaedra’s second).
The traffic driving back home in the holidays. And of course the gift giving. Everything was great; thank you Eva & Anthony for sharing with us. I wish my family could have been there. They’d have loved it! There are a bunch of photos of the fun, & the kids on our family site.
Well as you can tell from this, and the two previous posts, Phaedra and I are back from our trip down south. Every other year we’re suppose to spend Christmas (and subsequently Phaedra’s birthday) with my family in Miami.

With all the time she spends watching these shows, I know she secretly wants one. She had casually mentioned possibly getting an Angel on her shoulder (maybe a matching cute devil on the other?). I had told her if she went through with it, I’d get one too, like a small heart with Phaedra’s initials in it. In the end we went with something different: Continue reading So we went to Miami Ink…
I hate SPAM, and I’m not talking about the food product, I’m not talking about the play, I’m not even talking about the song. I’m talking about those
greedy sons of %!$^@# unscrupulous spawn of Satan persons who flood our emails and who leave commercial scams in comments on blogs. I have an automated spam catcher that is pretty good, it has zapped just under forty spam comments to date. However one just recently made it into my Guest Book hawking Continue reading SPAM SPAM SPAM
