A Year End Family Photo


The ORANGEHOUSE family has traditionally sent out a year-end letter, photograph, and modest dividends checks. But this year we only got as far as having a photo taken in the backyard. And here it is.

I came home from work early today. I think David and I have come down with some kind of bug. We feel feverish, fatigued, and flippant. OK, not really flippant. I just put that one in on account of alliteration. Gotta keep the readers entertained.

juhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhujjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjhhhhhh - that part was "typed" by Henry the bad kitty as he walked across my laptop keyboard in an obvious ploy for attention. Oh yes, he's sick too. He threw up on my bedroom floor last night around 2:00 AM. Thanks for that, boy. Maybe he's annoyed at not being included in the family photo.

And one last piece of news, today is our wedding anniversary. Sixteen years today! We celebrated with a nice lunch out together sans offspring. Gotta have that time alone together. She continues to be my very best friend. I love you, The M.

Ahhhh, happy anniversary! Your pic is wonderful. Looking back at the M's high school pic, it's easy to find the family resemblance w/ David. Jono must belong to your side of the family.

-Your neighbor

You can call "the M" just "the" for short.
