Last night, my buddy Eric and I went to a concert at the Grand Victoria Casino in Elgin. Actually, a park right outside the casino proper. Opening was a band known as The Orchestra, comprised of former members of Electric Light Orchestra (a name held legally by former member Jeff Lynne). Headlining was the classic metal band Deep Purple.

Katie (Mommy),

You are the most amazing woman in the world and we cannot imagine our lives without you. Thank you for everything you do for us every day.

We love you so much,

The worst part about being a parent are the scares.

Actually, the worst part about having anybody in your life that you care about are the scares. I mean, when you're by yourself, you worry about yourself. That's really about it.

Not that they can't take care of themselves effectively, but you want to do your part because you care.
