We Are Family

With all the hubbub over the death of the Pope, Prince Rainier, Terry Shaivo, Johnny Cochran, and probably lot's of others that I'm fogetting, I thought it was a good time to talk about life. Recently, there have been a number of new additions to not only my immediate family, but also to my not-as-immediate family.

New People
-My sister Beckie is pregnant and expecting her first baby sometime this September. My early guesses are as follows: If it's a boy, pro-golfer. If it's a girl, musician.

-Marc and Meghan announced a short time ago that they're expecting their first baby sometime in early October. There is no doubt in my mind that in a few short years (maybe months) baby Cryan will be going to Twin Co., the bowling alley, Banks' house (even though it's no longer Banks' house), and all of the other various boring-but-fun activities that occur in Northwest CT amoungst us crazy folk. In other words, I already want to hang out with him/her.

-Anni and Chris have adopted their first child, in the form of a very cute little kitten. Please join me in welcoming... Mrs. Buttersworth "Sprout" Fairba-runo! (click for bigger pic)

-Chuck also surprised everyone with a cat of his own. Adopted at 2 years old, please also welcome... um... I forgot his name because we are all very weird people and name our cats ridiculous things. For now, I will call him... Chuck 2! (click for bigger pic)

-Querida, my parents dog, just had her second set of tiny little poochie's. Please welcome Volkman, Vito, Ventura, Valerie, Volvo,Vasco, Veronica, Vesper, and Vera. Much like their mother, they were given a strange letter for their litter, 'V', hence all the V names. 5 white males and 4 black females now terrorize the Scattergood abode in Northwest CT. But not for long, because just like their parents, they will soon head off to training camp to follow in their father's footsteps and become guide dogs. (click for bigger pic)

I think that's all for now, although I'm probably forgetting someone (or something) really important. (Please note the comments, in that I did forget something important. At least I knew it would happen...) Anyway, it's nice to welcome all of the new life into our... lives.

Welcome aboard, matey's!

Hey Bobo - you neglected to mention the addition of Volkman, Vito, Ventura, Valerie, Volvo,Vasco, Veronica, Vesper, and Vera in your non-but-almost-people category. Querida and I are very insulted to be excluded!!!!!!!!

Her name is Evil Kisneezels. I call her Nugget. So I guess her whole name is Evil "Nugget" Kisneezels.

We'll find out if it's a pro-golfer or a musician on April 18th ... Chris and I wanted to use the name Evil Nugget, but I guess we would be considered copy cats now. Thanks Chuck.

I'm rooting for the musician. Of, course I am a bit prejudiced....I think those musical Scattergood genes will be dominant!!!
Congrats Mom!!!!!!!!!!!!
