From the looks of Fragments recently, you might think I didn't have any family members with fewer than four dewclaws. While I won't have the chance to wax loquacious (or even talk very much) about my recent visit 'home' to Birmingham, let me take this quick respite from tummy-rubbing (the dog's of course) to celebrate some other family members. Moe here is an adopted family member who was introduced last weekend in my brother's church as my 'father', and I'd gladly accept that association any time. He and mom have been best friends for 18 years now. Moe just turned 80, and even though they were contemporaries in grade school, somehow mom is only 45. She claims that recently her children have grown older than she is. Hi mom. Thanks for a great homecoming.

You gotta be fibbin', Fred. That woman is, perhaps, my contemporary (although she could be younger), not a contemporary of an 80-year-old! Wow! What genes!

After some heavy-duty hitchin' up and plasterin' over a sixty-something friend recently remarked that it's embarrassing when one appears younger than one's eldest child.

Now we know the source of your boyish countenance...nice photo.

Beautiful. I love that your mom has someone special in her life. I hope I'm that lucky when I'm 45.
