Trying to avoid the pitfalls of going days without posting… So I’ll keep it pretty brief. Today, Sunday, we got up and went to mass. We’re Catholic. It’s kind of what we do. We drove over to Fort Worth. Have I mentioned how much I really like Fort Worth? My wife even asked as we drove around “Why don’t we live here?” It seems to have everything Dallas lacks, namely a vibrant downtown. We went to their cathedral. It is always a beautiful place. Afterwards, with my niece visiting, we drove over to the Fort Worth Museum of Science History. We decided to become members because the benefits were pretty nice. For instance, we can bring 8 people to a handful of museums around the region (and the country) for free on this pass AND it includes 40 Imax passes per year. We really enjoyed our visit to this place; but we’re looking forward to visiting one of those other museums on the list — the National Cowgirl History Museum, right across the plaza. Anyway, other than Baby Girl throwing a fit (and actually throwing up a bunch of Twizzlers from her Imax experience) at the end of the day, all was beautiful. Life is beautiful. And after a beautiful dinner at Wilma’s house I came home and accomplished a week’s worth of school work in an hour. Now, it’s off to bed to dream about the week ahead.

Harvey’s Cast of Characters
New to my blog? Wondering who all these people are whom I so lovingly mention from time to time? Here's a handy guide to the characters in Harvey's universe!
Harvey: That's your's truly. Not my real name. I'm a faithful Catholic, husband, father, teacher, former TV producer, and writer who's just trying to make a difference in this little piece of earth I call home. I have a penchant for coffee, disco, gin, and anything fun.
Mrs. Harvey: My lovely wife since 2007. Why she married me, I'll never know; but I'm sure glad she did. Love of my life, mother of my children... She puts up with me, expecting nothing in return. So far, she's gotten a pretty good return on her investment.
Son/Sonny Boy/Young Man: Our seven eight-old son. Loves (currently) machines, Legos, Star Wars, the History Channel, weather phenomena, his sister, and chicken nuggets. Apple of my eye, he reminds me of why I am so proud of my former reproductive abilities.
Baby Girl: Our seven year-old daughter. She has my eyes, my heart, and my birthday (even to the exact minute!). Loves girly things, her brother, and expressing herself artistically. Takes after her dad in appearance but that doesn't seem to have affected her beauty. Reason #2 I'm in awe of my siring capabilities.
(My) Mom: Amazing woman who brought me into the world. Doesn't get to visit us much in person due to trans-continental distance but she and I speak via FaceTame almost every day. A native New Yorker, she and I laugh at the same twisted things. If you like this blog, thank her. She knows her kids and encouraged me to write years ago.
Wilma: OK, so that's her real name. Texas born and bred, Wilma is my mother-in-law, cancer-warrior, prayer partner, drinking buddy, and one of the most genuinely awesome human beings on the planet.
le.Rheims: My baby sister and fellow blogger. She writes far better than I do and never lets me forget it. She prefers to be known as a well-known socialite and composer of light verse but I think sister, wife, and mother of 8 suits her better.
More to come...
