And now for a really sweet story

Because I defiled my blog with a photo of Dr. Laura, I thought I'd freshen things up by telling a nice story.

When Jay leaves for work every morning, WCK likes to run to the dining room window and wave to him as he drives off.

"Goodbye, Daddy!" she always yells. "WE LOVE YOU!!"

This morning, she was waving, as usual, but Jay was preoccupied with an enormous school bus zooming down our street, and he didn't wave back. WCK was so involved with her own waving and yelling that she didn't seem to mind. After he drove away, we went into the living room to play for a few minutes before preschool. We were finishing up a Pooh Bear puzzle when the doorbell rang.

It was Jay. He drove all the way back home and came to the door in the pouring rain, because he realized he forgot to wave to WCK.

So he got back into his car and re-enacted leaving for work, and this time he waved.

"Goodbye, Daddy!" yelled WCK. "WE LOVE YOU!!" (Thoughtful pause) "AGAIN!!!"

I didn't want to send this to you via your comment section, but I could not find your contact info.

Love your blog.
I was diagnosed with Stage IV Hodgkin's back in December of 2006 and have just finished 10 months of chemo. I took time off from my day job to get through this whole "Cancer" thing. In my spare time, I created an online T-Shirt and Swag shop called

They are selling really well, but any exposure I can get would help. Can you please add my banner to your great website? Link info can be found in the lower left corner of the website.
I was sick and tired of looking for "Cancer" t shirts and only finding "Feel Good" stuff. My shirts are for the young hipster cancer set. Please give them a look.

Thanks for your consideration,
