". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

(William Shakespeare's Othello, I.iii.88-90)

Happy Birthday, Honey

Today is my husband's birthday. He was born in 1963 (I'll let you do the math). We were married in 1987. He's almost been married to me for longer than he hasn't!

I thought you might appreciate seeing a few of the many ages and facets of this amazing man. (And if you'd like to wish Phillip a happy birthday yourself, feel free to do so here or at his own blog, which I have, um, sort of ambushed today.)

Now that is what I call a smile!

Phillip and Giselle (gone now for about 7 years)

(just look at those beautiful hands)

Lettin' it rip at the Galveston Jazz Festival

"And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
And say 'Man, what are you doin' here?'"

Is it any wonder he stole my heart?
