Ménage

From left to right: Jacob, my son-in-law and still-sulking Bronco fan; Melody, my oldest daughter and wannabe chef; Chris, oldest son, eligble bachelor, 1% body fat; Alayna, family princess, doesn't know what a dress is; Trisha, Jon's girlfriend and the nicest person you'll ever meet; and Jonathan, fisherman, bad golfer and Kobe-hater. And below we have Melody and our Dog-in-Law, Champ. (We have a thing for boxers.) Ain't he a beaut? She's substituted a grandbaby for a dog, which is hardly tolerable. But with those glowing eyes, he does bare a strange resemblance to me after twelve straight hours on the computer.

Great pictures, Mike. I've had an ongoing debate with friends about what my lab mix is mixed with. It's a fight between a Boxer and Pit Bull. Although she's a different color than your daughter's dog, it' like looking at my puppy. She's got to be a Boxer. But that's neither here nor there! Beautiful family. Except Jonathon has horrible taste in Lakers stars. I love Kobe.

Elaina, I've rooted for the Lakers ever since my Dad took me to see them in 1972, the year of their 33 game win streak. I saw Wilt and West, Gail Goodrich and Pat Riley. It was inspiring. We are huge Laker's fans -- even Jon. He just grumbles about Kobe shooting too much (the usual envious complaints). After Kobe's 81 point performance, Alayna wrote the number "81" in big letters on a piece of paper and taped it to Jon's door...where it remains. Take that, Kobe-hater!
