    Welcome back, Dad! I hope that Brian was able to get you back into the Brockmiller blog, and that you had a nice time meeting your greatgrandson!

    It looks like everybody is posting on Facebook these days, so I haven’t seen much here lately. We’re hoping Dad has a good trip to Canada and some success with the competition!

    I’m getting ready to get up on the 12 foot tall stepladder to try to trim an overgrown foundation planting back into shape. The arrival of 80 degree days has brought out the gardening urge, which will subside before long. Hope that Pafford household is on the mend, but it is spring allergy season.

    Less than a month until we’ll be visiting Greg, Jessie and Skyla in Hawaii! We’re really looking forward to spending Skyla’s first Easter with them on their home turf. In the meantime, we’re trying to decide on a new car–we’re looking at sedans (enough with the minivans already!), but we can’t decide among small and cheap, hybrid, mid-size and reliable (Accord), a little sporty, or possibly slightly used luxury. I prefer to think of it as our being open-minded. We’ve driven quite a few cars now and done a fair amount of research and shopping, but nothing has jumped out as an absolute “buy me” car yet. Any ideas are welcome….

    Hey, Dad. I copied Brian’s directions to Kathryn from an earlier post so that you can add a picture of yourself:
    To upload your picture click on Your Account on the right, then on the next page click Userpic & Avatar, pick a picture of yourself on your computer (by clicking browse) and them click update to save it. That’s it!
    I’ll email you a picture of yourself that I’ve sized down for posting here. Of course, you would probably like a picture of yourself in your full York Rangers regalia, but since I don’t have one, I’ll just go with the Hollywood headshot.

    Merry, merry Christmas to everyone, especially those we won’t get to see this holiday season. And, Wil, if you happen to stumble onto the blog, please know that we are all thinking of you and praying for your safety every day. Thank you for volunteering!

    So, did I fail at the picture posting thing? I tried once, and it rejected the picture as being too big (don’t believe that line about it resizing the pics automatically–it didn’t). Then I resized the picture, resaved it and tried loading it two more times, and even though it said I succeeded, I don’t see anything but a black square, which wasn’t my intention.
