Wow! Talk about eventful times!

Okay, so I'm home safe and sound from Dubai, but my camera is being retarded, and I'm having a hell of a time downloading pictures.
I'm also suffering jetlag from the nine-hour time difference. I was exhausted last night, in bed by 10:15, and wide awake by 5:15. I know I will crash this evening, and hopefully, that will be the end of it.

Okay, eventful times since I got home, in reverse chronological order:

First, I am now the proud daddy of a 14-month-old female cat. I adopted her from the Ottawa Humane Society this afternoon. I'll post a pic when I can. She's all black, sleek body, with beautiful eyes. We have already bonded. Right now, she's still exploring her new home. GET THIS: Her name was and is COFFEE. I've already informed Ma Horton, and she seems pleased.

The big, momentous event: LITTLE BROTHER DAN GOT ENGAGED YESTERDAY!
He and Pretty Christine came to Ottawa for the weekend, to surprise his Mom on her birthday. Then yesterday, at Christine's folks' place in nearby Rockland, he proposed and gave her a ring. Thanks to today's snow storm, they're stranded here for a day, so we had lunch together, and Dan asked me to be his Best Man! No wedding plans are in place yet, but it will probably be somewhere in the Caribbean in the next year or so. As Dano told me last night, "Keep your sandals warmed up."

Proud of my Little Bro? Who? Me?

Awwwwwww thats awesome news... Congrats on the new cat (at first I thought you meant cat as if you were referring to a woman and then you said you adopted her from the humane society so...).

Congrats on Dan and the engagement and you being the BEST MAN, that is such an honour and I am sure you are ohhhhhhhh so proud. Great News!

As for the camera being retarded mine is doing the same crap, so I will develop some pictures from COSCO and then scan them and post them. I got tons!!

A & J: Thanks.
As a new lurker here, I think it's time for a bit of catch-up. By Little Bro Dan, I mean Little Brother capitalized, as in being matched by Big Brothers when he was 10. He's 25 now.

Don't get me started. I'll gush about him and go on and on and on and on. Suffice it to say he's a very big, important part of my life.
