So sweet!

…her good friends Du and Jade for the “get well soon” flowers!

She would give you guys kisses… if her cone weren’t in the way,

Roxy! On our TV!

…to find our good buddy Roxy being interviewed overseas!

See you in a few days, buddy!

Oh, the horrors that await my liver,

They were taken out of the alley within an hour!

Colonel Sanders stands alone,

Old me would hate this new me.

I even got my CDs down to one rack this pass!

ONE?!? ONE?!?

This is madness,

Don't let the door hit you in the apartment on the way out!

…and sorry for the delay in posting regularly here, but in the past ten days we’ve been dealing with a move, getting ready to go out of the country for two weeks, and a dog with cancer.

Yep, you read that correctly.

Two weeks ago, we found out this thing in Mr. Fabulous’ mouth was cancerous. Since then, she’s been in for lymph node aspirates, lung x-rays, vaccinations, and a highly invasive surgery that removed part of her upper jaw and lip.

This is the result:

FRANKENFAB!

The good news is she appears to be in the clear, at least for now. We’ll put more updates up here if need be, but we feel very fortunate right now to still have her around and mostly healthy. Albeit with a huge, obtrusive cone on her head.

I’ll be updating the site a bunch by week’s end, but thanks for the patience.

2015 started off like shit,

…every Christmas (except last year, when we had to improvise). This past Christmas was no exception.

Kissmas 2014

We call this annual event Kissmas.

Last week, while digging through these old photos from October 1996, I also came across this photo:

Kissmas 1996: The First Kissmas

From what I can tell, this photo is from the very first Kissmas my Uncle Kevin and I ever celebrated. It was taken on Christmas Day 1996.

That’s nearly two decades of kissing a man with a mustache. A man who, for the record, I’m not related to by blood!

Gonna have to print a book someday,

-Shady

this print from my good friend Amanda Hope Cook, I also bought this print as a belated Christmas gift for my sister Bethany!

"Planters Peanuts" by Amanda Hope Cook!

Couldn’t post it until I gave it to her,
