It'll be 26 years July 2 for my wife and me.
In honor of that and of Father's Day, I've changed my avatar. (Of course if anyone stumbles across this after I've changed it again, this post won't make much sense.)
That's the family last month at my daughter's college graduation. She was on the 5-6 year plan, but she made it just in time for my last year as a prof at her school, so we got to wear our gowns together. And, yes, she is the one without the mustache!
And again, YES, that is the LITTLE lady at the far end. (If I were as much smaller than her as she is than me, I'd be 3' 7"!

“The chief purpose of life … is to increase according to our capacity our knowledge of God by all the means we have, and to be moved by it to praise and thanks. To do as we say in the Gloria in Excelsis ... We praise you, we call you holy, we worship you, we proclaim your glory, we thank you for the greatness of your splendor.” J.R.R. Tolkien
