    I remember those days. (from the parenting end) They all worked out good, though. Congratulations on placing in Brian Strand's April Footle contest contest.

    Wow. A simple truth in a footle. It always seems to happen just at the time there parents' need them the most. It's a hiding of convenience almost. Congratulations on your Honorable Mention.
