[My wife, the best caddie in the world].

I had to post this picture of my 6 month-old girl taken yesterday.  Here she is playing with her ball.  She’s not sure about the whole ball thing and why she’s on it.  She’s learning how to balance and keep herself from falling, but you can tell by her face that she’s a little nervous.

Well, here I am.  Been sick for awhile but I’m now feeling better.  Still have a bit of a cough, but hopefully that leaves soon.   It’s crazy how I’ve been sick twice in the last few weeks and before that, it was about once a year that I get sick.  Interesting.

Have you seen the Carl’s Jr. commercial with Audrina from MTV’s “The Hills?”  It shows her in a barely-there bikini chomping down on a “Teriyaki Six-Dollar Burger.”  In the commercial, as the camera goes up and down her body, she says, as only a true air head could say, “I call it my [*long, dramatic [...]
