I turned 34 on the 4th. It was a very bitter-sweet birthday, heavy on the bitter. Trying to cope with the loss of Lori's dad 2 days before my birthday has pretty much eliminated any desire I had of celebrating it. But I know Blake would be pretty ticked off at us for making such a big fuss over him.
Lori still managed to find time to surprise me with some gifts. She read my mind and got me a heated grip set for my KLR so my hands don't freeze. She also got me some signed prints from DerekArt. The big elephant one is going over the Victrola (tube amp one). I'm a lucky guy!
