I know, because I'm one of them. Sometimes I'll start a conversation with others in the cat food aisle. Sure, we complain about how we jump through hoops for the critters. We complain about how one week our pets just LOVE the food we dish out, and then won't touch it the next. The real hardcore cat nerds are the ones that keep track of their cat's birthday. Well, our Ollie (pictured) turns 11 on Tuesday. What kind of neurotic cat nut would keep track of that?
...but I'm feeling pretty nostalgic about back to school this year. You see, this is our last one. Our boys (pictured) are starting their senior years in high school and college. I know most parents are tearing their hair out right now, rushing around to prep their kids for back to school, if they're not back already. Truth be told, my wife Kim does the lion's share of getting our boys ready, so I can afford the luxury of being nostalgic, and I'm eternally grateful to her. Cliche alert: the time's gone by too quickly. Enjoy every second.
Iselle and Julio are bearing down on the Hawaiian Islands. Surfers are lovin' it, and homeowners are in a panic. It's been 20 years since a hurricane has hit the islands, which means it's been a long long time, if ever, that two have hit simultaniously. We're thinking of you, islanders.
....even in the nursery. My wife and I saw this in a store on Sonoma Square a while back. We thought it was pretty funny at the time because we remember reading Goodnight Moon to both of our sons when they were little.
