New

Personal--Grace Triumphs!

I got the coolest phone call from Grace, my 2 1/2 year-old niece: for the first time she spoke to me on the phone to announce to me--"Uncle Mike! I went potty on the potty!" After assuring her that this was very exciting and great news, and that it was one of my favourite hobbies, myself (sorry--colon joke! I could hear my sister snort in laughter in the background), she then informed me that she was now going to build a house and that the telephone audience was at an end. As much fun as I found it, I hope there aren't relatives out there who look at me and remember me announcing the same thing.... :-P
