    Happy Mother's Day to you, Theresa!

  3. That is the handsomest photo I have ever seen of the major dude, Samuel, Bethy. He look so mature and not at all like the man I have always so enjoyed visiting. I don't Facebook, so please give him my regards. Eli and Banana look, as always, delicious. Chris

    Thank you, Christopher. Managing to get all three of the people I love most in the world together at the same time, let alone more or less presentable and still for the camera – a major feat. And I do have to mention that in this shot, you can't see the scribbles all over my son's body. Love you.
