Family Ties Part 2: The Verdict

You may want to read yesterday's post to understand the story behind today's.



Well, those of you who guessed that my brother-in-law is in his 30's were close, but no cigar. He will actually be 41 this year! I know........SAD! Also, the dog really did only have one puppy. It's rare, but apparently it does happen from time to time. Anyway, I contemplated not doing these posts about him because I didn't want him to read them and get offended. Then I remembered that he just discovered the internet a couple of months ago (Oh wow! The internet has everything! I can find people I haven't talked to in a long time too!") and figured I'd be safe. Oh, did I mention when he came to visit us on Thanksgiving that he actually drove to the airport to purchase his plane ticket. I almost peed on myself when my husband told me this. What is wrong with that man?! I guess everyone is unique in their own way!

Even before the internet you could buy tickets over the phone! Driving to the airport...CLASSIC!

It sounds like he is just...old school? My dad still doesn't really understand the internet, so I would say he hasn't "discovered" it yet either. The closest he comes to computing anything is with a calculator...and even then, he typically does the math in his head.

I promise... All of those random pics are the same ole' me.. Nothing to write home about. HA HA! :) Yeah, the hubs sometimes forgets when I'm like..."Hey why don't you do this ...and let me take a pic.." that it's probably going on the blog... Oh well!

The ol' tinernet is a tricky thing. ;) The older a person is, the easier it is to believe he doesn't have any idea about computers... but 41 is not that old. I might have peed myself, too. (my grandma asked me the other day "what's that tweetie all about?" - meaning twitter).

(oh, and sorry about the name-calling. I was trying to work you in somewhere and imagine that - you got to be a dirty mind. Ahahah!)

I knew he was grown! Too funny. You'll so have to post about what happens when he does discover your blog.

That is seriously funny. I cannot believe he drove to the airport. It's okay my mother-in-law always ask us how will she get her ticket if she pays for it online. Each and every time she ask us this.
