If you think I juggle a lot of stuff...

Just take a gander at my uncle. (For those who've known me that long, this is the same guy who spent his 60th birthday counseling rescue workers at Ground Zero.)

Your uncle sounds like a good man.

I love it that the reporter included Duchess in the article.

Being Jim's dog is a Very Important Position. Mom and I stayed overnight in his rectory apartment once when I was little and he wasn't there. She slept in Jim's room, and of course this meant sharing the bed with Taffy, the collie mix he had at the time. Taffy kept pushing right up next to her, and she kept trying to give the dog more room, until she was on the very edge of the bed with a dog still plastered to her.

When we saw Jim, he explained that she had made the crucial mistake of sleeping on Taffy's side of the bed. :-D

Your uncle definitely has the right attitude.

Poor, suffering Taffy, having to deal with a human who's just not taking a hint. :-)

That is awesome. People don't realize how much effort and work goes into being a priest, and how much they really need to be sustained not just by their faith and their congregations, but by the love and support of their friends and earthly families. I love that your family is and always has been so proud of him. :)

I LOL'd at the naming of his dog, BTW. ;)

So few people have clergy in the family nowadays, it's hard to even think of them as having families and lives. I'll always be grateful for having grown up with that perspective, just aside from Jim being awesome.

And the legal documents might say otherwise, but Duchess so owns that house. The naming is a most true and appropriate thing. :-D

He really, really is. And Duchess does indeed hold royal sway. :-)
