    OH I don’t know. I think I enjoy this ‘non’ writing even more than I do the “real” stuff sometimes.

    Now, under the things you were sure you’d never type heading :

    My Mother swore by braless drives down bumpy roads, as enducement magic. She said Dad seemed to like it at the time too!

    Trust me, all of the suggestions in the world about how to get the baby out don’t work (we tried). Including my OB/GYN trying to go up and “weaken” the membrane. And sex. And stairs. And bumpy golf carts. What finally did it (a week and a half past due) is car shopping and a long walk at the mall . . .

    Good luck!

    Fear not! Even with the genetic material provided on a certain male side…

    Glad your folks are alright. Saw the pictures in the post above this one, but being lazy, making only one post. Hope the weather leaves you and yours alone from now on. It has been really active here in Alabama this spring also. Right now the current PITA is figuring out how much equipment got blasted by the lightning strike at the high school I work at this past Wednesday about 11:30 in the am. Besides at least some electronic equipment having gone to the great beyond, two pieces of decorative concrete tile were exploded by the flash steam produced by the hit and sent chunks flying at least 50 feet. Impressive, and scary. The place needs lightning rods–this makes 9 major hits in 11 years. A power pole got hit and caught on fire last July. Very impressive, the teacher who saw it said…

    Waiting for the kid is fun, eh? Hope that goes well, and hope it goes soon too. Waiting is, as Valentine Michael Smith said, but waiting is a PITA, too.

    Rick Bragg is going coming to town! Rick Bragg is coming to town! (Can you tell I’m a little excited?) Monday night at his sorta-alma-mater. (He did one semester, then dropped out.) Found out about it reading a column in the local paper that a local history professor writes every week. He’s worth reading too–Hardy Jackson, if you run across any of his writings. He did a Sunday paper article about the strange, funny relationship between bootleggers and preachers here in Alabama that was both informative and extremely humorous in an ironic way. Anyway, the daughter and I are about to head out and buy (among a few other things) a Rick Bragg book for him to autograph. Been wanting a reason to buy one anyway.

    Have a good one, and may the stork be with you, soon!
