"The Voice"

I received a phone call today from the United States, (ok, it really was for Diane but I answered) and as I was passing the phone to Diane I heard "The Voice" on the other end say this, "Dad your blog is really lacking these days. Even MY blog has more action than yours."

I responded, "But I put something on Instagram almost every day".

The Voice, "You can not let Instagram overcome your Blog".

For some genetic reason there is only one person who can constantly criticize and correct me and I do not get offended or defensive. I actually listen, feel bad and change what I am doing. She did it as a child when I was, "blowing this thing way out of proportion." She did it as a teenager when I got Diane a lame birthday present, "She knows you just ran across the street to the bookstore during your lunch hour". She was even the one who told me the truth about Christmas.... "You know Mom hates the store you shop at and always returns the clothes you give her for Christmas, right?" (The worst part was I didn't know that and thought the clothes Diane was wearing were the ones I had bought...for years).

So, it should not come as a surprise that I will be blogging a little more frequently. Thanks for keeping me on the straight and narrow, Jen.

Here is "The Voice" in action in Buenos Aires last year...

How can you resist that smile? I can't.


  1. Haha! Thanks for the compliment... I think?
    Are you sure you didn't realize Mom was never wearing the clothes you got her? That may be the worst part!

    Can't wait for a REAL post :). Love you Dad!
