The First Decade

Our ten and a half pound bundle:

On June 29, 1999 Camryn (who prefers Cammy) entered our lives. Our caboose. Joy, fun, imagination, cleverness, talent, affection and love came with this package. I love you" a bushel and a peck," Cammy! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!

No Longer Wise

Coryn and Cait had their wisdom teeth removed this past weekend. Of course, I would not be alive to write this post had I put an actual "after-surgery" photo up. (Coryn actually had her teeth out at age 14, but apparently a fifth one grew in...weird, I know.) Believe me, the after-surgery moments were priceless and embarrassing; they were just like two drunks I'd picked up off the road. Coryn has healed faster, of course. Poor Caitlyn has had a rough go of it and is expected back to work Tuesday, chipmunk cheeks and all.

Check Out Truman

I'm liking this new CD by brothers Ben and Chad Truman. Caitlyn went to their CD release concert last Friday and brought me a copy. Their parents, Dan and Wendee are college friends of mine. (I can even brag that I performed with them once upon a time.) Wendee is a beautiful vocalist and Dan is an amazing pianist/songwriter (and member of the multi-award winning country group Diamond Rio). They are also truly nice people. How neat to hear the "musical genes" carrying on with their talented and cute sons! To find out more about Truman, listen to their music, buy the CD and find out where they are performing visit:

What's Your Favorite Flavor?
