My parents were married on the 30th. My little sister (the last of four kids) is getting married on *their* 49th anniversary!

My dog once ate a two-foot length of Saran wrap, so I will gladly accept your metaphor in place of it, especially if you're the meaty dove.

I just noticed that the first page they feature in the photos under the book I linked to is titled "The Slave Trade." I AM AN AWESOME MOM.

We've been through most of Beverly Cleary's stuff. Henry Huggins goes to the store to buy horse meat for Ribsy, and I don't know how much more charmingly-50's you can get. I end up getting a lot of reference books, too. We've gotten a lot of mileage out of this book. The segments are shortish, the illustrations are decent, and the print is biggish. He knows full well how to use an index now, so when he asked what "Ur" is (after we heard it on the CD from Chik-fil-A) I could tell him, "Go look it up." We looked at the book, discussed the birth of civilization, and decided that "Ur" is a very silly name for a city. We spent about three minutes straight saying "Ur...ur...UR..ur" at each other in the car yesterday.
