Here we are, enjoying our midweek contemplation, and today I am thinking about a lot more than just Hump Day. Today is my second son, Brett’s, birthday, and I always love remembering those past moments with each of my kids. Even though they are all grown up.
He went up to Berkeley on the weekend to visit his eldest (my first grandson) who is a senior at UC Berkeley. Along the way, we chatted via phone. He is the only one of my kids who still uses the phone to talk…lol. Well, the others do occasionally.
Here are Brett and Alec after the game they saw.
Here are a few shots of Brett over the years:
Brett, on his fifth birthday, enjoying his chocolate….
Now…one a few years later, with his siblings…he was around 12 here (front, right):
Check out this Christmas photo of all four of them: Brett, third from left, looking grumpy. He often loved making such faces when the camera was turned on him. He was still a teenager. lol.
And now, for the somewhat blurry “photo of a photo” that hangs in my office (circa – 1991). Each of them at our special sculptured monument at the university, and around that photo, the individual kids. Brett, top right:
Sending happy birthday thoughts to Brett!
Meanwhile, here in my office, I am feeling frustrated. The WP commenting system is still failing me! I sent them an email request, stating the issues. And I’m not the only one having them! So far, they haven’t responded.
They were working on the system earlier, so is it too much to hope that they might be fixing the problem? Probably not.
Meanwhile, I try commenting on WP…and sometimes the comments go through. When they don’t, I use my FB sign-in, on the blogs that are set up that way.
Occasionally I tweet the blog-owner, letting them know to check their spam folders.
Any ideas? Is anyone else who reads my blog having that problem? I know that other bloggers mentioned it on the weekend.
I’m going to try to forget about it for a while…I’m looking forward to having my hair styled and chatting with my daughter later.
