in a family way

This past Sunday we celebrated my grandfather’s 81st birthday, with a nice family get-together at the (lovely) home of my Uncle Steve and Aunt Marg. It’s always wonderful to see everyone[1] together, I have to say. It was quite a festive affair, especially because Chad and Jen shared their double-barreled news with us all: not only have they bought a lovely home in Oakville, but they’ve got a baby on the way to help fill it. Amazing stuff, and boy, did it ever not help my baby-craving to be talking about it all afternoon. Hoo boy.

fn1. Actually, Steph couldn’t make it, but we talked about her quite a bit anyway. In other Steph news, she’s on “the cover”:/~shaver/diary/assets/steph-salon-cover.jpg of Salon Magazine. Nice picture, I have to say.

    Since you’ve recently been going to the gym to add muscle to your already powerful form, and since my fiancee reads this blog, I too find myself compelled to carefully say “nice picture,” and nothing more.

    Not to worry, Mike: I’ll say it – it is a beautiful picture of one of my babies, posted by the other baby – can’t beat that (IMNSHO) =^)

    I’m looking for a copy of the mag, but haven’t had much success here in Kingston. If anyone else has one, lemme know. Thanks.

    Sheesh: this comment thing prefers URLs to Emails. This is just so whomever finds a mag can lemme know.

    OK, so I’m the last person that should be making comments here, but I’ll just point out that, prognostically speaking, Geoff Hamer was on to something.
