Owl Side

Just to say...

...that my extended family is absolutely brilliant. I spent the majority of this evening nearly falling out of my seat laughing at the family lore dredged up for dinner entertainment (such as my 90+ yr old great grandmother nearly setting her apartment on fire while trying to wax her face). Plus, I'm extremely heartened by the sharp vitality that the 70+ contingent exudes. Damn, does this segment of the family age well.

Also, extreme perk that dinner was held at a restaurant with thoroughly succulent shrimp scampi and wickedly good dark chocolate truffles.
