The Spider and The Fly

The Rolling Stones - The Spider And The Fly.

Had a great forking birthday. I can't believe how many people wished me a happy happy -- my Facebook page is full and there are more that rolled over onto the second page.

A day spent alone turned out to be a day filled with love and good wishes, wordsmithing laughter, and joy. An unexpected pleasure on what I had feared was going to be a lonely sad day.

Extra bonus points: I have a new step-grand-something (step grand-nephew?) to share birthdays with.. Jennifer's step-sister Alicia (remember her from Jen's wedding) gave birth this morning to this little bundle of joy - Alex weighs in at 9lbs 10 oz and is 21" long -- the exact same size my Stephanie was when she was born dang near 21 years ago.

Welcome Baby Alex.


  1. Congrats to mother and child!

    As to The Stones, here's one:

    Brian Haysoos Marimbas!!!

    I've never seen this clip!

    Now you have.


    How's the double nickle wearing on ya?
    Hope you had cake and ice cream galore!

  2. hey larue -- double nickle and i are doing fine :) no cake and ice cream - i had half a slice of moon pie (i had eaten the other half the night before) and jen is making me chocolate mousse for our celebration mon.

    i'm sure she will have lots more pictures of the little guy and updates on how mom is doing.

    i saw that stones clip last night when we were rockin with the stones and beatles. the jukebox played some prime videos and it was a great trip down memory lane.

    hope you and your better half are doing well.
