It’s All a Blur

It doesn’t seem possible.

How could two years have passed since


this day?

I know, it really is sobering.


This calls for extreme doses of chocolate.

Carpe cake, my dear. Old time is still a-flying.

    Happy Birthday to your little cutie. She is *just* beautiful!
    My youngest is 8 and it’s killing me. I really want another baby. They grow TOO FAST!

    Oh, and ‘Old time is still a-flying’ is from my late great, great, great (keep going a while) grandfather Sir Robert Herrick. I’m sure you knew that though, Lissa (that it was Robert Herrick, I mean). I have lots of his poetry. My mother, God rest her soul, was Melissa Herrick (of the very same Herricks) and my son, Andrew’s, middle name is Herrick.

    There are pics of Sir Robert in the old family homein NY. Can I say that I am really happy his giant English schnoz got filtered out over the generations? In the words of Monty Python he would have been one to benefit from “Blessed are the big noses!” 🙂
