The 54 year old reboot

On May 8, 1957, Mona Hull spit out little Christopher at somewhere around 6:43 according to the faded birth certificate.

I will forever be grateful that she hung onto me until the 8th, because if I had been born on the 6th, and had the same birthday as her dad, I would have been saddles with Alphonse as a first name.

Yep, that really would have changed my whole life track, from the incredibly well adjusted individual you all know out here (I hear those snorts, and you are all on report) to a serial killer from the life long heckling.

So to start my birthday off right, I have decided to try and crank up this here blog device again, and hopefully be able to give it some of my rare free time.

I want to try and write more about Skyler, and what it is like to have him as a son. And I want to try and be better at replying to everyone's comments. And on that note, does anybody have a favorite blogger plugin that allows for replying to comment through email? I would like to be able to do that so it is quicker and more personnel.

We will be seeing you around folks.

  2. Capone's first name was Alphonse. I don't think he was heckled much. Just sayin'.

  3. But then I could have said I have a friend named Alphonse. That would have been cool. For me.

    And like DVM - where's your birth certificate???

    BTW Happy belated birthday too!
    Replying back? I get my comments in my email so then when I approve them I can reply with an email at that time that goes back to them. Hope that helps.

    And what Lynette said re: replying. I get comment sent to my e-mail. It makes life a WHOLE lot easier. You need to let people know to make their addys available though.
