Corrupting Julie for Half of Her Life

Date July 24, 2010

I suck at remembering birthdays. Hell, I barely know what day of the week it is sometimes. But, early last year, I had a long and rambling post whereby I tried to nail down the exact date that Julie and I met each other. That date, it turns out, was March 23, 1990. Given that, [...]

Lobster, Anyone?

Date July 12, 2010

With three functioning cameras floating around, we occasionally find pictures that are a bit dated. This one isn’t that bad — it’s from June 24th when my parents treated Carson, Julie, and Alana to lobster in Dripping Springs.

Date July 4, 2010
