First things first!  Mass at 8am.   Asked for priest’s blessing for peace of mind and peace of heart.   Same birthday as visiting priest.  What a coincidence.  When I was younger, I thought I was the only one who had a birthday on this date!

Proceeded to the mall to check out their walk program only to find out it was cancelled due to the holidays.   Looked for jeans, but all of them were below the waist  – don’t like this style.   Oh well.  Then off to Outback for lunch with Pressy and Remy – I was duty driver.   Pressy was car-less and Remy’s benz had to be serviced.  Off to search for gowns for the masquerade ball.  Home at 5pm.   Will be picked up – hopefully after 10pm because I watch The Mentalist.   Where?  I have no clue.  So far, it had been a surprisingly FUN day.

Hey Mom!

This is called a blog.

I have no idea why it’s called a blog, but it’s a device that allows you to tell a story once but have many people hear it.

No, I am not hinting at anything at all. Am I?

We picked a blog engine called “WordPress.”

All you need to know is that it’s easy to use.

Blogging is fun and I’m sure you’ll enjoy it too.

Happy birthday mom.


Well, here I am taking up the second post as well.

Happy Birthday Mom!

I hope that this site brings you some enjoyment and a new vision of the interconnectedness of family and friends.

As much as I hate being the first post on someone else’s blog, I thought I would offer a few words.

It’s the 23rd of December 2008, and this is a brand new website.

It’s also my mother’s birthday.  She goes by Ludette so I managed to snag that pretty quickly.  Lucky, that.

So, open letter to my mother, on her birthday.

Here goes.

Dear Mom,

I know I haven’t been the most communicative of sons, but I do want you to know that I love you very much.  Please don’t doubt that, even though I very rarely call.

Mea culpa.

I’ve created this space here as a fresh start for you.

It can be anything you want, just know that I’ll be here reading it.



There it goes.
