Turbitt kids growing leaps and bounds

Life of late: Ashley turns four months on Monday and is trying to walk and talk already. I'm not a baby expert, but it sure seems early. She radiates this bursting desire to do both these things already, and it is pretty jarring to her dad. With the slightest assistance she can stand already. After having a lot of help in Saipan and the Philippines, Cynthia is taking care of this high maintenance little girl all day while I'm at school with the boys. This is an extraordinarily difficult job.

Also, after a lot of effort and practice, I finally got Alex to take that leap of faith, so he can now swim. Not bad for five years old. There have been other big events in his life. He started kindergarten last week and also discovered erections, which leaves him rather perplexed.


Also, sat about twenty feet from Bill Maher at his show in downtown Phoenix last week. It was a great show. Next week the Dave Matthews Band is in town. Those things almost make up for not being able to go diving.

That does seem young. **shrug** They've got their own schedule.

McCain says the trees chase the dogs there. His other joke on the You Tube I saw was that he hasn't missed a vote on energy.

No diving, but you may get the chance to see Manny Ramirez, dressed in Dodger blue, knock one out against the unit, Randy Johnson. I'd give a weeks worth of morning wood for that one.
Did you receive the email, with the "show them to me" link a few weeks ago? For some reason, my lad is totally fixated on boobs after viewing same. Not that the subject hasn't been on the tip of his tongue since ten seconds after birth, but you did bring it up. In a general sense. Oh. Ashley has such a sweet grin.

So... was Manny tanking it before he was traded?

He may be a loafer, but he sure can hit!

What do you mean you can't go diving? You have a pool. You could also dive in the Agua Fria River (inside joke...tell your readers what the Agua Fria is like just before it's confluence with the Gila River near your house). You live less than a mile away. Talk about convenient.

He's a loafers loafer. I'm always surprised when he actually covers some ground. I think he'll make out ok in LA, he's just crazy enough to fit in. I wouldn't want to be Joe Torrez though. "cut your hair, Manny" "Que Pasa?"

I'm sure you kid will appreciate that boner comment when his friends are old enough to find your blog.

Did you hear about LeRoi? That's a big loss for the DMB and the musical world.

I did. I'm going to see to the concert tonight actually. I thought they might cancel.
