Uncle Roger's Notebooks of Daily Life
My life is, to me, ripe with frequent challenges, occasional successes, spontaneous laughter, adequate tears, and enough *life* to last me a lifetime. To you, however, it surely seems most pedestrian. And therefore, I recycle the name I used previously and call this my Notebooks of Daily Life. Daily, because it's everyday in nature, ordinary. These conglomeration of events that are my life are of interest to me because I live it, perhaps mildly so to those who are touched by it, and could only be of perverse, morbid curiosity to anyone else. Yet, I offer them here nonetheless. Make of them what you will, and perhaps you can learn from my mistakes.

So last night, we took Jared over to Serramonte to get him out and about and to -- hopefully -- tucker him out so he'd go to sleep earlier than later. The big attraction is the center court where the recent renovations have included a good sized, zen-style koi pond.
The pond is stocked with a number of fish, a handful of turtles, and a couple of rocks with water spilling from them. Jared likes to watch the fish and turtles and I like the whole zen thing. Rachel likes the Disney store.
Last night, there were four turtles swimming around right close to where we sat at water's edge. Two smaller ones and two larger ones. And the two smaller turtles kept trying to mount their larger friends. Too bad Jared is still a bit young to learn about the birds and the bees. Not to mention the turtles.
Yesterday, despite having bathed the night before, Jared decided he needed to take a shower. He went into the bathroom, turned on the water, and got in. Fully clothed.
