Going to Wichita this weekend to perform the smaller of the two moves. Leaving Thursday after work and arriving back in STL Saturday evening. As the in-laws are still out of town, we're contemplating theiving their 27" television until we get our household goods from Texas. I cannot wait to get a couch!
Astro. His wife. His brother-in-law. My wife. Our friend. Our two children. Myself. Enjoyed dinner and an evening with Astro & his family when he came to STL on business. Will unfortunately miss them on the way back, as we are in Wichita that weekend. Not to worry, they're looking to get down here lickety-split! His brother-in-law is an ex-Navy man and unix system administrator. That was cool, we had lots to talk about! That and Astro finally come up with the goods - pics of the Bengals. Oh, they're gorgeous. The coloring! The patterns! Meow.

Methinks David & Wendy are going to keep Mleko. She's a sweet cat, and I love her. But she is also getting up in years, and there is nothing I can offer her that David cannot. Plus, she's integrated herself into his 4000/sqft home with his other cats and hasn't seen Daisy in a year. I'd hate to move her across the country to offer her an 800/sqft house with Daisy. If there's going to be someone other than myself who is caring for Mleko, there's no one else I would rather it be than David.
For Valentine's, my wife presented me with a basket arrangement of Bud Light and chocolate World Poker Tour 'chips' (we are in STL, after all - what better way to express ourselves than with Bud Light, the local beer of choice?) I hid in the house, a bottle of Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur. I wonder if she'll share?
