Comment policy change

We've been getting some comment spam recently. To combat this annoyance we're going to restrict comments to registered users. I hope this works and that it doesn't discourage anyone who wants to post. We like comments. We read comments. We answer comments. But we don't want to send anyone to a bogus website from our comments.

Thanks.

A look back at cooler days

Not as in leather jacket and tattoo cooler, but a fleece and sweater weather cooler. Here are Laura and Melissa obviously enjoying a cool March day, while Melanie and Nicholas are just oblivious. Come to think of it, maybe nap time is the reason that Laura and Melissa are so happy.

Dinner at Pappasito's

A trip to Houston means a visit to Pappasito's.

On our way.

Take me to my seat, sir.

Yes, this will do nicely.

Gonna need a straw.

Did you hear the one about the priest and the rabbi?

That was delicious!

Now, as the evening winds down, a bath.

And a reading of Goodnight, Mr. Night.
