IHOP changes policy of asking for IDs

"QUINCY, Mass. - John Russo has been a victim of identity theft. So when he was asked to fork over a photo ID just to be seated at an IHOP pancake restaurant, he flipped. "'You want my license? I'm going for pancakes, I'm not buying the Hope diamond,' and they refused to seat us," Russo said, recounting his experience this week at the Quincy IHOP."

I'd like to see an interview with the employee who decided this would be a good idea. They probably thought they were going to be commended for taking initiative. Sheesh.

Who's that cute baby?

That's my little nephew, David, at what I believe is his first Christmas outing. He was an even littler baby last Christmas and he was very much in awe of all of the lights at the display we visited Friday.

So long, farewell.

I am now down to just five pets! Can you believe it? My sister in Virginia adopted the two boys, pictured below (with me). They seem to have adjusted well and I'm sure they are going to make for a very happy family.

I will sure miss them, but it's nice that they're staying in the family.

By the way, they have been re-named Lewis and Clark. My sister was a history major. What are you gonna do?

Happy Thanksgiving! I'm outta here.

Sorry there's not been much postage lately. Please accept a link to CatholicGreetings.org in lieu of the details of my exciting life. Hopefully I'll have time for updates when I return.

That, my friends, is a lot of icing. And we like icing.

Not really, but would we be surprised?

The story behind it is pretty funny.
