In Praise of the World's Most Paranoid Rodent

The groundhog failed to see it's shadow, today which, means Spring will come early! Yay!

 Remind me of that when the heaviest snowfall of the year hits us in mid-April, you know, like it does every year in Colorado.

Anyway, in honor of the rodent's failure to retreat in fear of it's own shadow, I spent the morning cleaning my house. Then, since I hadn't had quite enough fun for one day; I cleaned out my car. I know; the life of a rock star and all that.

While I was dusting the various (and, numerous) picture frames throughout my home, it occurred to me that I hadn't taken any black and white portraits of the kids in a while. In addition, I haven't really annoyed them with my very existence on the planet in quite some time, so I decided to kill two birds with one stone.







One day, they will thank me for forcing them to pose for pictures together. They'll probably decide that I'm not nearly as embarrassing as they think I am right now, too. I predict that happening right around the time one (or, both) of them is wrangling their own surly teenager into an agreeable pose for the family portrait.

God, I hope I'm around to see it. And, you know, to cackle about what a bitch that ol' karma can be.
