It's Birthday Time!!

Good ol' Detective Goren turns 52 today!  I can't help but wonder what sort of deviltry he's conjuring up these days with which to torture all those creepy suspects.  I sure do miss the big guy.  In the "good old days" I would have tried to come up with some "witty" captions for the photos below; just don't have it in me anymore.  Happy Birthday, Bobby!!!!

Get Me To The Church On Time

The happy trio below is my godson, Nathaniel, his fiancee, Melissa, and her little one, Addison. (I "borrowed" the photos from Melissa's FB page.) Aren't they adorable, and don't they look so, SO happy!!! They are getting married this Saturday in Ironton, so I will be heading back home to the "wilds" of southern Ohio tomorrow morning for the occasion.

I still remember the day Carlisa and Ralph brought Nathaniel home from the hospital, and I had the happy experience of assisting at his first bath. Oh, what a fuss he made! I've never seen a baby turn so many shades of purple! LOL And, now, he's all grown up and getting married. My, my, time truly does FLY.

Sadly, Carlisa passed away in December 1995 when Nathaniel was only fourteen. Even though Carlisa won't be there in person, I know - without a doubt - that her spirit will be tucked away in some secret corner of the church, smiling and bursting with pride as she watches her baby boy embark upon the next great journey of his life.
I also have the distinct honor of lighting the "unity candle" for his mother.  I understand the usher, who will be escorting me up the aisle is about 6'5" or taller.  I'm 5'2".  What an interesting picture that will be!  I just hope I don't trip over my feet or set the sanctuary on fire.  It could happen.
