Magnum isn't particularly close with her (politics!), and she and I drifted apart about 10 years ago when she married a new guy - who turned out to be not so new ifyaknowwhaddimsayin' - after a bit of homewrecking drama for her daughter. Nothing against the new guy, just the circumstances.
But time heals and people mature and I've noticed her making efforts to socialize with us more. So when she called to invite us over, I was glad when everyone said yes, although it's pretty easy to get Chaco and Wolfgang to play along when there's lots of good food involved.

In other news, Meego had his first track meet for the season this week. He ran the mile, the 800 meters, the 4 x 200, and threw the discus. He's not a big contender in any of those events, but nice variety, no?
The main thing is, he's having fun. Save the vomit inducing pressures for high school.
