So the journey continues for Alice. She will soon be navigating the chessboard of motherhood, and in 23 years she will have her grown up tweedledum and tweedledee. Who we hope will be just like me: Good-looking and Intelligent. LOL!

Still, from the other side of the looking glass, I have to say that early parenthood doesn't look like a whole lot of fun. So it will be awhile before I embark on that little journey - barring any "accidents" of course. Toddlers and older however, do seem to be a lot of fun. So if you know any beautiful women that can give birth to a pair of well-mannered 5 year olds, please introduce me. I will be more than happy to marry them. Note that I said give birth to, and not already possessing. Just saying.

Lastly, at the request of both Alice and her spouse, I cannot put any pictures up of A and B and their parents. It's sad I know, but it can't be helped. So I apologise, for only having these great wads of text. Hopefully they have been interesting, and hopefully you have both learned from and enjoyed reading it all.
