My apologies for the infrequent posts as of late. My wife's 30th birthday was this past Wednesday, and in the midst of the planning of a surprise party for Friday, she requested to have people over for Wednesday night.
Not exactly able to say no, her family and I scrambled to plan two parties: one with her knowledge & cooperation, the other without. Happily, the surprise went off without a hitch. However, the time we invested in keeping the two separate meant no blogging for Doogie. I'll be back in the swing of things again shortly.
