a brand new baby

P.S. Congratulations, Jessica! I can't wait to see that baby. I hope you are getting some help so you can get a couple of hours of sleep a night. Oh how I remember when Sadie was a brand new baby and didn't believe in sleep unless she was being held. She also had a problem pooping. Sometimes went a week without then one day would just fill that diaper. This made for some misery and a lot of crying. Happy to report that is no longer a problem.

So, enjoy your time together, snuggle often, a hand him off whenever possible.
Welcome to the world, Bobby. I hope you can make it a better place.

got my fix

Kim , Sadie and I went garage sailing on Saturday. I scored big. The first one I picked up an audacious victorian lamp shade. It was too big to fit in Kims trunk. Then we went to a place that was there just for me. There were bolts of brightly colored fabrics and patterns and a pair of orange shoes that were like high top commerce with beads and embroidery I had to have (50 cents!) I got about $400 worth of fabric for $40. My my heart was pounding so fast I thought I'd have a heart attack. My hands were shaking as I offered her an amount that was clearly criminal. She seemed satisfied and even threw in some stuff for free.
I am having a very intimate Labor day dinner for 5 1/2 people. It 'll be a mini thanksgiving. Kim is keeping an eye on me lest I invite 30 people and turn it into a huge shindig. She has seen a small soiree elevate to mass proportions before. And of course, whether its a barbque or Christmas, everyone knows that I disappear after dinner to go to bed.
OMG. Obama is coming to Detroit today. He's safe as a kitten.
