Aiming High: Daughters & Sons

For Daughters Day
Ellie's 1st Birthday Party

For Sons Day
Purdue Campus ~ October 2020

Chicago ~ March 2020

Earlier this month,
the boys exchanged some songs on Sam's birthday:

Ben to Sam: "All of the Above"
Maino ft. T-Pain

Sam to Ben: "Off the Grid"
Kanye West

My choice: "Still the Same"
You always won every time you placed a bet
You're still damn good, no one's gotten to you yet
Every time they were sure they had you caught
You were quicker than they thought
You'd just turn your back and walk

You always said the cards would never do you wrong
The trick you said was never play the game too long
A gambler's share, the only risk that you would take
The only loss you could forsake
The only bluff you couldn't fake

And you're still the same
I caught up with you yesterday
(Still the same)
(Still the same)
Moving game to game
No one standing in your way

Turning on the charm
Long enough to get you by
(Still the same)
(Still the same)
You're still the same
You still aim high

There you stood, everybody watched you play
I just turned and walked away
I had nothing left to say
'Cause you're still the same

You're still the same
(Still the same)
(Baby-baby still the same)
Moving game to game
(Still the same)
(Baby-baby still the same)
Some things never change
(Still the same)
(Baby-baby still the same)
Ah you're still the same
(Still the same)
(Baby-baby still the same)
Still the same

Hello Autumn!

We stretched the extended summer out
to last as long as possible, from solstice to equinox!
Welcome Golden Mabon
-- gotta love those Celtic names!

And what could be better than the added bonus
of a perfectly timed Harvest Moon
