A Little Fun with the Band

Wow, it's been a long time since I've posted to the family blog. Lots of trips for family visits and for work. I actually was in Amsterdam a couple of months ago. Marlaina was at a conference in St. Louis. We all spent some time with the folks in Tennessee.

Danny and Emily bought a new house not too far from us and have settled in. It's really great to have them so close.

I've been spending time with my memories of Uncle Marvin since learning of his passing. There were times when we hung out together, but that hasn't been true for many years. I still feel very sad about his being gone.

Back on the home front all is well. Liam is a few weeks from middle school and the seventh grade. Wow. Blink of an eye. He has been developing tremendously as a member of the Wave Aquatics swim team. Here is a video of him at a meet earlier this spring.

I'm pretty sure my midlife crisis is in full swing. I've been hosting a Wednesday night jam for twelve years and last year decided to form a band from Microsoft colleagues to go out and play a few gigs. We've been doing it. It has been an absolute blast. It looks like we're going to be asked to play a few more still this summer and fall.

If it amuses you to do so, you can see photos of the band and watch videos of us playing at this link:

Here is a picture from our latest gig

Until next time...
