"you know, my blogging friend", "I thought you were talking about a real person" Now, I know they are real people, I just meant some one, well, really in our lives. But now it is the joke of the blog that they are invisible friends, hence the pictures on left.

38: Poor Mike, stuck with us, perfectly imperfect parents. You got the older models. A little less patient, perhaps, a little stricter, not easily fooled. But know this...we love you more than anything in the world and will do everything in our power to help you find happiness. You will always have a home to come back to, and arms to hold you. And most important, we have introduced you to God, the sustainer of life. So bear with us, we may be imperfect, but our love for you is as perfect as it gets.
