The Blogroll, She Just Keeps Growin'

I've added a few new friends over on my sidebar.

Angela is a friend of mine from fifth grade! She was kind enough to stop by several months ago but I have neglected to add her until now. She's a very talented photographer. There's a link to her work on her blog if you'd like to see some of the great stuff she does. And she has two way-cute kids.

Montana Dave and his wife are good friends of ours. Dave was Jay's RA in college and we've been lucky enough to stay in touch with them ever since. Dave used to stay with us in Chicago when his work brought him to town and for a few awesome months he even lived in the same building. That was the same time frame in which my sleeping habits took a turn for the worse as we stayed up way too late trying to best each other in Settlers of Catan. He and his wife now have a ranch in Montana. His blog is all about their adventures. It's fun. You should go.

Hey, MB, I finally found something we have in common!!! We LOVE Settlers, too! Maybe we'd get along afterall... we'd just have to avoid any discussion of a subject of importance...:-)

What is it about Chicago and Settlers of Catan? My friends who introduced it to us were also living in Chicago at the time while he worked on his MS in Physics. How crazy!

Maybe the Settlers and Chicago link is that Chicago is a big enough city that they actually have some stores that carry good games instead of reality tv show themed trivia games?

Hey, it was the Londoner who got *us* Settlers... But the MB/J family has always been a good source of what new games we need around here...

And likewise, Jenny. Transamerica becomes a favorite of all who play it at our house.

Ah, those were the days, there was always time for "one more game."

Thanks for the link!

...even if it meant manually holding our eyelids open while simultaneously passing the cashews and sipping our flavored seltzer water.

Was that really our life? How long ago was that? Decades?
