old friends

after a great many years of radio silence, we (mom, dad and i) heard from a childhood friend of mine. unfortunately, his father passed and that is what took him back to las cruces. fortunately, mom and dad were able to spend a couple of weeks helping him go through his dad's stuff, hold a garage sale, etc. he is, of course, an artist (in new york). it's amazing how even as children artistic types are attracted to artistic types. anyway... i thought someone out in cyberland might get a kick out of this photo of he and me in the late seventies. god we were cute!!

java baby

it seems that everytime sadie gets her morning cup of coffee and makes her way to the 'junk room,' the coffee has disappeared. i suppose 10 month olds don't really need java anyway.

harry predictions

okay... so i love the harry potter books. and i always have ideas about the next book that i don't document, then when i say 'i knew that was going to happen' people look at me incredulously. so, this time around, i'm going to document what i think will happen:

1. the prophecy from 'order of the phoenix' will be about neville, not harry - thereby putting neville's life in danger.
2. harry will end up with ginny.
3. the death from the end of 'half-blood prince' will be a hoax.
4. snape will turn out to be an extraordinary force of goodness and righteousness.

can't wait until midnight friday!!!
