Wisdom from the Man of Love

Alexander Padilla Eaton, Laura's nephew and my nephew-to-be, has sent us a marrying card (his term). Alex has been a ring "burier" in his share of weddings during his six years of life, so he has a good idea of what Laura and I will look like as we tie the knot. Here it is, along with the widsom of the Man of Love, who reminds us that diamonds are special but love is more precious.

The Man of Love has sharp fangs that affect his victims the way Cupid's arrows are supposed to. The Man of Love has bitten several people around Alex's house recently. Rumors of an enthusiastic Alex animating the construction paper canines have not been substantiated, so it appears the Man is acting alone. Watch out!! The Man has sharp vision in spite of those specs.

Thanks for the card, Alex!!

I have to say that my family really shines through this whole process, from the youngest to me (not the oldest!). All of us are thrilled about August 6 and the great celebration we are planning. Don't know how many of you are familiar with "The Marcha" tradition here in New Mexico but the man of love will be there so don't miss it!

The Man of Love: adorable-though-carnivorous emissary of ardor or post-nuclear abomination?

It's no coincidence that he's been spotted so close to the Trinity site, I'm afraid.
