You can whistle really loud? As in you can be heard a half mile away? Did you know Grandpa could do that... that's how he called the boys home from anywhere in the neighborhood!!
Very cool...

...and I'm afraid to admit it... but next time I have doritos and choc chips in the house... I'm tryin' it...

ok, can i comment on some rather than just have a good laugh over them?

2. he only went out with her once. we wanted to purposefully not name you after Anyone we were related to. i seem to recall that there was a certain amount of coolness on both sides of the family over our announcement that we were getting married for various and the same reason. so we decided to steer clear of family names from both sides. then we had a hard time coming up with a name we both liked. the most common response from both of us to the other's suggestions- 'eww, i knew a patient by that name'.
finally i remembered wendy. she was a neat lady and i knew your dad had good feelings about her. it was an instant hit and i think you were born a day or two after we agreed on it.

4. i happen to like it, yours i mean.

6. fine by me if it stays that way....

7. good question, yours i mean.

9. i wonder why they don't ask about sense of humor. you definitely have that.

10. that was a hard process, getting rid of them, but it appears you are right.

16. what about hand size? inquiring minds want to know.

18. i would have to answer the same, about me that is.

36. you doing the ring cycle again?? i haven't started yet but i did come across saved pictures of my favorite, viggo mortenson. :)

37. so that would be........brown shoes, blue pants and green shirt? gee now i don't feel so bad.

45. eureka. is that the one with the guy with the long hair and strange face? i saw part of an episode last eve but could not figure out what was going on, partly because your dad had the sound too low for me. but the guy with the long hair reminded me of that short lived series, 'beauty and the beast'. i sorta liked it..... what's the guy about? is it too long a story? who plays him, not the same dude as the beast.......

49. my answer, for you that is, would be my number 9 above.

50. 6/7/73 to be exact. the world is a good deal richer now.....
