The Adventures of SuperChris. Faster than a mad dog on Greensward! More powerful than gas from Dad's chili! Able to leap tiny legos in a single bound! Look! It's SuperChris...who can change the course of mighty lakes of interior drainage, bend playdough in his bare hands; and who disguised as Edwardo Escabeche, mild-mannered ginger for big pharm, fights a never-ending battle for love, honor and the puppy-power way!

5: My Dearest Christopher: It was such a long time ago that I had written you that letter on the facing page. Being a new kid on the block, you asked at that time for our help, understanding and most importantly our love to get you started on your journey through life. And it's true, as you said, your needs were small at that time. But as you have journeyed through life, now just having arrived at the age of 34, it is remarkable how many giant hurdles you have successfully crossed to become a very, very fine young man. I had the greatest privilege of witnessing the most fascinating experience of your birth as you emerged from the womb and at that moment I looked directly into your eyes. Very clearly, I could see you struggling to understand what had just happened. But, in your usual way, you seemed to quickly grasp the situation and calm came over you. I can honestly claim that you have been born with your own unique personality that is securely rooted to genuine goodness, honesty and especially caring for others. change. Your mother has spent a significant amount of time compiling the photos and assembling this book. As you look at the photos it is our sincere desire that they will evoke the fondest of your childhood memories of family and friends. Eventually the book may wind up in a pile of other things you've saved over the years, however, I can assure you that its value will dramatically increase over the years as you age. We sincerely hope that you'll be able to appreciate its intrinsic value long after mom and I are gone so as to relive the memories of days gone by. I have no words to express the love I have in my heart for you son. Just know that the love I have for you has been there the very first day mom came home from the doctor and told me she was carrying you. That was my finest day! I hope that your future will be bright evermore. Loving you always, Dad
