My Two Sons

Awesome! This is going to be fun, as long as the "poetry sharing" between John and Eliz doesn't get too ugly.

As for me, I'll just share various feats of my children... such as my monster second son's ability to weigh ten and a half pounds at two weeks of age. (Elizabeth, does that beat you and Daniel?)

The boys a few days ago:

Just let me know if ChazMat reaches 30 lbs by six months. Then he's got Danny beat.

I'd like to know who deleted all the poetry comments...and why?

Hey Elizabeth...I left a comment but realized there was a typo and deleted it and it left that message that my message had been deleted. So, that was pretty lame. Then John's poetry was deleted and my comment was there all alone saying John's comment was amusing and it looked even LAMER with no poetry there, so I deleted that, too. So, I guess I'm the double Lame-O today. How's that for a complicated answer for something that shouldn't have been complicated to begin with!!!

John said...

I deleted mine for prudence's sake, but I'm willing to redisplay my poetic mastery if you like.

MrsCritter34 said...

I'm still entertained by the fact that you can write now. When I left you 19 or so years ago you hadn't really progressed that far...I'm sure that comment just left the door wide open for some John Husted Smack Down. Sorry about that...

Kate said...

I think we should all just happily accept our Lame-O-ness. No afterthought deletion of comments allowed.

Except I can delete this one later if I decide I want to.

Kate...I guess the every hour feedings are doing some amazing things!
I am glad to know the truth about the deletions. True to the manifestation of my root sin of vanity..I was concerned that the deletions had taken place because you did not want ME to see them...just another example of how it is all about me...I am relieved. John...I would like for you to repost your poem...I think Dad would get a kick out of your memories of early morning pigeon scraping!

The Cook boys have shared an item of literary trivia. Matthias is a character in the REDWALL series (author Brian Jacques ). He is better know as "Warrior Mouse".
An opening phrase: "Matthias cut a comical little figure as he wobbled his way along the cloisters with his large sandals flip-flopping and his tail peeping from beneath the baggy folds of an oversized novice's habit."

A closing phrase:
"Therefore, I name you Matthias, the Warrior Mouse of Redwall, champion of our Order".
Perhaps a vocation is being born into the family as we speak!
