When others write my blog entry for me...

"Texans made a decision about marriage, and if there's a state that has more lenient views than Texas, then maybe that's a better place for them to live." -- Governor Rick Perry (R), Texas, on Gay veterans and marriage. * Note, 11/15/2006: I was looking over this post today, and realized it might prompt some to assume that I'm against gay marriage. At the time I wrote this, I made an assumption that people would know that I was being facetious, based on the overall content of my blog. I now know that many people who stumble upon this blog might only see a single post. I am very much for gay marriage, and I hope it one day becomes the norm and not the exception.

New Family Member

This is a picture of me, almost twenty-five years ago, taking a walk with my maternal grandfather, John Schemm. I remember vividly how I wanted to have my very own cane, just like "Pop" did. This must have been a very special moment for me.
