Whiskey is 1

And what we have learned over the past year is how good a dog Bailey is.

Visit from mom and dad

We drove up to Trinity College to visit Sam. We saw "Hamilton" (from perhaps the highest seats I have ever been in in a theater). My dad fixed the chimes in our antique wall clock. We ate BBQ. We just hung out. 

It was a short visit, but it was just enough time to remind me that they are great.

I won't provide a full itemized list of why, but the short list would include being unconditionally loving, being great role models for a successful marriage, and genuinely caring about other people and the world.

We're #1

As I'm about to go to bed, Naughty Ninja Takes a Bath is the #1 children's book in the entire country on Amazon, in its first day. This is not so much an indicator that NN is destined to be a classic, but that Amazon First Reads is an effective marketing program. 

But it's like if you beat the defending NCAA wrestling champ on a locked hands penalty point. You're not going to complain about it.

And so it is.

An excellent day.
