Thank you, folks.

And Trish it shall be.

My eyes are a light green that at times show blue, and that I'll grant, comes from your great-grandmother, Verle Nanny "Nichols" Higgs, the Matriarch of my line and a saint, if I were to be asked. :) Your dad's spelling is horrendous. I hope you didn't yours from me. ;) I'm really short for a giant, becoming 5'7".

For school, before my uprising, I was very athletic. Too short for the coach, but a magical arm with any type of ball. Balance and coordination exceptional. So the coach said go try gymnastics. No football for Johnny. The gym teacher thought I was great. Great swings, high bar, crazy dismounts from the parallel bars, a lotta googly weird stuff.

Then, when I was really starting to get into it, gym coach told me I had to shave my mustache. On later reflection, I realized I missed my chance to be molested by a coach who liked little boys by quitting. See, I didn't really have a mustache. Just adolescent fuzz. Strange.

Anyway, I rollerskate like no one you've ever seen. High dive at every opportunity. Swim like a fish.

So aside from the coach, in bar and many family issues, I still had an adventurous childhood. Much more to come, sweetheart.

So I don't know if my blog elves scan both sides. Hi guys. Thank you so very much for the opportunities you've afforded me. So I'm gonna break out another page. I know my elves are generous, and it's not necessary but I enjoy wordplay in misspellings. A humorous eye will catch my act. And on that page, the last two paragraphs I'll repeat.

I'd shower you with elaborations of milk and honey, spans of words made funny, but the fact of the matter is, my dear, I'm here. See, faith is boss. Tell me what you see.

Dad
XOXOXOX

P.S. You still do push-ups? ;)

Very proud, no mater what. Keep up the good works.
