Another no-longer-invisible friend

I've written often here over the years about meeting my Internet message board friends. I finally got to meet another one! My friend Christine and her son Kevin were in town for a med school interview and stayed overnight with us. We went out to dinner:

Then Christine and I stayed up late chatting and goofing off. Here we are admiring my Instant Pot, which makes crazy-good yogurt:

Infinite Harveys

My friend Marisa is a fabulously talented artist. Last winter she took some really cool pictures of Annabelle and Harvey, worked her Photoshop magic, and came up with something really special. She just had it displayed in a show in DC, and Fred and I went into the city for the opening. Here she is with the piece:

Marisa wrote about creating this piece on her blog. You should go check it out, because she has a couple other beautiful pics of Harvey and Annabelle there.

I can't wait until I have this one hanging in my house!

Laughed, thought I'd die

Mike posted a picture from his 9th-grade cross-country team on Tumblr and invited the Internet to have fun with it. I'm getting this one printed up to keep at my desk at work:

Summer (and fall) of Stinky

I set Mr. Stinky outside on my porch at the beginning of the summer in hopes of getting him to bloom. He has tried before, but none of his blossoms have ever gotten big enough to open. We didn't get any blooms this year either, but he more than doubled in size and looks so much healthier!



Next summer, Mr. Stinky!
