Default My baby daughter's boyfriend

This post is utterly off topic, but I think is worth posting.

My daughter, Anna, has been seeing a fine young man for a bit over a year now. About 6 months ago, he accepted a job in Chicago. Anna had a job where they lived, in DC, and didn't know what to do. As it should have, her heart won and she moved. Admittedly, I was her biggest co-conspirator; I like this man.

So last week was Anna's 24th birthday. Her favorite animal in the world is a sloth. I have no idea how Joe did this, but he managed to obtain a live sloth to spend all day Sunday with Anna! Huh? Where and how does a person in Chicago find a sloth to borrow for a day? As you can imagine, Anna was overwhelmed with happiness by this gesture. This is a man who goes to great lengths to make my daughter happy; this is a man who has also won her father.

Charles, when I think of my two daughters I KNOW that I'm the most fortunate, gifted, and blessed man alive.

John, was the sloth carrying a ring? 😁 Beautiful and touching, proof that in Chicago, you can get anything.

Funny! Joe has a LOT more hair, though our beards are similar. Except mine is white.

I'm amazed. No ring, but I think Anna was OK.

And he just did more. I grew up (well, was in college) on the original Star Wars movies. I love them. So I got home today to find a package from Joe. In it I found a photo of Darth Vader and Princess Leia AUTOGRAPHED by James Earl Jones.

This young man is GOOD!!!

Last time I did, Anna used a word I can't use here in telling me to shut up. Thus, mentions of rings are now only hers to make. It'll happen when it happens, and I feel sure it will. How could any man resist MY daughter?
