Not So Golden Rule

Last night I was reading a kid's Bible to Henry before he went to sleep. I read the Golden Rule to him. His response ... "I do that someday. Owen and Griffin do that someday too (his best friends)." Who knew? The Golden Rule is only applicable for part of your life. I'm not sure when it goes into effect.

This past weekend we celebrated Meg's birthday. We went out for a nice family breakfast on Saturday, went to a nearby botanical garden (indoors, of course), made Mom a cake, didn't nap while Mom got a massage (it's been a very long afternoon nap strike at our house, must be in solidarity with the Egyptian people) and had a family party on Saturday night. We took a bit easier on Sunday to get ready for the additional, now routine, mid-week snow that's coming.

The coins weren't so hot. 20 small dollars, 8,000 half dollars and 200 quarters turned up just two 40% silver halves (1967, 1969D).

Found: 1 penny, 1 dime, 1 foreign coin (a Irish penny)

Nap strike? It must be the activist gene from the family gene pool and it's just starting. You're certainly going to live in interesting times.
