Someone just called my name - was it you?



In preparation for swimming classes, Dad suggested that I find some shallow water to wade in -- so I did:



This prompted my folks right then and there to break out their wallets and actually buy me a wading pool - which was my point all along:




Here I am at the post office contemplating non-postal business:




Mom steals a kiss while I thieve her eyewear - guess who made out like a bandit?




Do I look taller when photographed from this angle?

Dad and I had the opportunity to visit XM Radio and watch a musical performer tape his show before an audience.  Sadly, I was not able to bump into Bob Edwards:

Dad said I needed to start helping out more around the house, so I picked up an alligator-powered lawnmower.  Dad wondered how we would feed and shelter the lawnmower - much less prevent it from eating the cat.   He had a point:




Look, up in the sky!  It's a plane.




Stop me if you think it's not such a good idea I'm thinking of taking dance lessons:
