Hurricane news

Seems like Wilma is headed for not only my parent's home on the west coast (actually it is a double wide trailer at a fish camp) but she will take the same route home that they do and hit their house in North Palm Beach too. Luckily, they are hunkered down in Atlanta with my sister, watching the White Sox.

My old high school friend Chuck Gill is live blogging the hurricane. Here is the link.

Chuck is essentially the only one of my high school friends who stayed in South Florida, seeing that he was the only one of us who got a degree that was actually useable.

Not a good sign

I have an old cell phone I no longer use, and because Grace likes to play with things like cell phones & remote controls, I gave her the old one to play with.

Apparently Grace likes to hand Sarah the phone when I'm at work and say "dada". At first blush, that seems so sweet, but it clearly is how she is beginning to see her father: as a voice on the phone and not in the home.
