Ain't a That Good News!

The good news?

Brother Dan's out of Iraq. Word is he's in Kuwait soon to head out to the states. I can't wait to see him, wierdo that he is. I can't imagine what it would be like to live in some foreign place of danger for a year away from family & the million little comforts of home that we take for granted every day, but he did it & he can be proud of it for the rest of his life. He's got a beefy armed marmot to come home to as well.

Kevin Davis' new album dropped in my mail box today. These are always unexpected surprises. These homemade little recordings are filled with such clever, funny, heartaching, ironic bittersweet songs, each one different from the last but tied together in some sort of thread.

There's only 98 days until Christie & I get married (I get the update about once a week on how many days it is). If you told me two years ago that I'd be getting married I'd have called you drunk & when you told me that I'd know how many days it would be until said marriage I would have kicked you in the shin. I think I got myself a real peach of a gal.

The bad news? Bad news sucks, I got none.

Aww!! It's actually 96 days :) But you were pretty close. I'm excited to hear the new CD! It's 98 till we leave on the honeymoon, that must have been what you were thinking of ;)
