I am the luckiest man in the world. Tonight I get to escort two beautiful girls to the daddy/daughter dance. They have already picked out their dresses and mommy plans to pull their hair up into some kind of girly/prissy configuration. The corsages are waiting for me at the florist.

This is the fourth year for me doing this and the funniest thing about it is knowing the restuarant down the hall is standing room only of all the moms who just cant stand to be left at home while their husbands and daughters enjoy a night of dancing. The dads get a kick at watching their heads peering in to see how it is going.

Nothing much new to report. Looks like we got around 20 inches, more or less---it's hard to tell because of the drifting. About knee-deep in the driveway (but Mr. shoveled a few inches off the driveway before the deep snow fell), and waist-high drifts in the backyard. We don't have a snow-blower, and shoveling the driveway looks impossible, but if our plow guy doesn't get here before tomorrow afternoon, we're going to have to try to dig a pathway out for at least one of the cars.

Here's our cars in the driveway:


Can't get out of the driveway:


Here's one of those waist-high snowdrifts:

We lived in Dallas for 6 years and I traveled a lot for work so it was great to still watch all their games.

I listen to Dodger games just to hear Vince Scully. He is easily the greatest baseball broadcaster ever. He has been broadcasting the Dodgers since 1952 when they were still in Brooklyn.
I have never heard Vince Scully broadcast a game. To me the greatest baseball broadcaster ever was the one and only Ernie Harwell, the Detroit Tiger's announcer I grew up listening to. He was the voice of summer!
