Speaking of the little dude (he's always gonna be little to me), I sorta started a tradition a year ago that I would post a little clip of him playing piano on his birthday. Last year he played "The Medallion Call" from PotC for me (see here). This year he did a little segment of Beethoven's "Fur Elise" (the clip is here @ YouTube).
Anyway, I won't be back until the 22nd. Meanwhile I hope I'd be able to locate free WIFI at the places we are staying at. Otherwise, I'm on an involuntary LJ hiatus. In case anyone is wondering, I didn't just fell off the face of the Earth, I'll miss you all while I'm gone.
