Happy Birthday, Garrett!

My oldest nephew is 28 today.  That's him in the photo 26 years ago with me on the right and Mom on the left.  We were at an open house at my brother's (Garrett's dad's) company.  The photo is generated entirely by computer-typed letters and symbols.
I took a photo of the photo from a couple different angles...it's been rolled up all these years, so it may be a bit distorted from the curves in the paper.  If you know Garrett on Facebook - wish him a Happy Birthday!

April Fools Day 2011 - How's The Weather?

It was hot like summer and then it snowed and snowed!

April Fool!! But, seriously, folks - last April 1st was 80 degrees with daffodils blooming and the year before on the same day, Minneapolis was treated to a layer of snow. This year was somewhere in between, with snow still on the ground from our near-record-breaking winter and a bit of rain - not snow - this morning. I posted this last year, so see for yourself:

April 1st 2010

And Happy 13th Birthday to my feline friends, Zane and Harley!
