Three hundred and sixty five days ago I sat down with my brother, Ameezing Ty, as he painstakingly showed me again and again how to upload pictures, view comments and write posts for this new, alien thing called a blog. Even if not one person had read not one article, this still would have been an ameezing exercise in ‘disposable’ creativity, flexing my then hamster sized writing muscles and just sticking to something. But you did read them, you really did! Thank you, thank you, ameezing reader for coming along with me on this journey. Correcting my spelling, sending cool stuff and writing ameezing comments (Mo Van and Karin get a special mention here). You made sending stories into the giant world of the interweb a little less frightening and a lot more fun just by being there.
Happy birthday Ameezing, you did good kid.
A birthday photo of Ameezing Ty and myself when I’m around one. My giant alien head and mutant lip aside, I have always loved the solemn tone of this picture. As if being a kid wasn’t all Mike’s Kitchen and Zet. There was seriousness to be had too. Ameezing.
A quick thank you to my cousin Dillon for saying, ‘Merlin’s Beard!’ the other day. There are very few people who can pull that off, but you, dear cousin, can.
