I am back in DC after a very nice Christmas in Chicagoland. There were many highlights and the highest was taking 2nd in the 2003 Christmas Contest. Here is my entry:
He is a superhero and his name is Running With Scissors Man. He is in therapy dealing with issues relating to his missing body parts and does not want to talk about it at this time. He has a sidekick to help him along. Her name is Safety Girl.

Austin won 3rd place and Lenore and Paula won 1st. There will be a page showing all entries in the near future. (Remember, this page is about me, me, me.) And a there will be video in the not so near future.

|Typically when there are this many members of my family on a train we are in a foreign country and there's lots of luggage, gypsies and confusion involved. As you can see by the smile on my face this was not the case.|

More Chicago adventures later.....

We've had snow the past two weekends. It was pretty.
