So I’m waiting for the kid to fall asleep.  Story of my life.   🙂  The goal is to Miller Drill once, rehearse 5 times, do the ending 20 times, pack and go to SLEEP.

So it turns out that I have a lot less to do tomorrow than I thought but we already have sitters worked out and places to stay so I’m still going into town early and staying overnight.   Going to relax and take it easy…maybe take in a rival Division contest!

I heard from my Uncle Frank tonight.  He is a main character in my early childhood, someone who gave me great joy and an appreciation and love for humour.  He was the funniest man I ever knew for decades.  My memories of him are almost exclusively of laughter, hugs and fun.  He is also one of the gentlest, lovliest human beings I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing.  I haven’t seen him in a very long time.  My brother’s wedding I think.  7 years ago?

Anyway, Uncle Frank has a primo cameo in my speech and my mom sent him the link to it.  Can I tell you how warm and absolutely content I felt when he messaged me?  It is such a pleasure to be able to share this with him.  Thanks mom.  🙂

The plan is to Miller Drill tonight and Avery Drill tomorrow.  On the ferry!!!!   In town!!!!   And have some more fun the next day.  Hey, the Tigers swept the Yankees in 4 to go to the World Series.  I have a home to live in for the rest of my life.  My Uncle Frank still loves me.  All is RIGHT with the world.
