Uncle Buck I Am Not


I am not Uncle Buck.

I’m no Uncle Buck, but I am quite excited to be an uncle again after news came in that SulliMom’s eldest sister Sarah brought Owen Patrick into the world last night. Oh, I guess her husband Tom had something to do with it too.

All I have to say to Owen is: Watch out for your big sister Tess. I saw how “gentle” she was with Liam so take precautions. Just giving Tess a hard time–she was very good with Liam actually.

Congratulations to Sarah, Tom and Tess. It’s very exciting stuff.

Good And Referral Friday


Stations of the Cross.

The Passion of Christ.

On this Good Friday, it always brings me back to my grammar and high school days when these events were recalled at church.

As I enjoyed breakfast at Meli in Greektown this morning with Smitty and RJR we commented on how it would rain around 3 PM today. It hasn’t happened yet, but doesn’t it always seem to pour on Good Friday?

On this Good Friday, I want to tell you about a few really good people who helped us purchase our home. Most folks in these professions will tell you that a referral is the best thank you a client can give them. Well, this is my referral. I highly recommend the following folks if you are going to buy a home.

-Realtor/Agent
Scott Curcio

-Attorney (I’ve always wanted to say I have an attorney)
Mike Mazek

-Mortgage Guy
Willie Bren

-Inspector
Michelle Teague

The key to this quartet

Really Cute. Our niece Tess enjoying Pompeii.

is the “You Don’t Make Me Feel Like A Dumb Ass” factor. All of them answered questions and even answered questions they knew we had, but we may have felt a little silly asking them. A couple of them we discovered because of a referral. If you want to ask me about any of these folks, please let me know.

AWESOME: I’ve been lucky enough to hang out with our niece Tess over the last couple of days (and other members of Molly’s family; you guys are fun too!). She makes me realize just how fun and hard it will be to be a parent. She is so fun and adorable and at the same time I get so nervous that she might put something she shouldn’t in her mouth or fall funny on cement. I can imagine the ups and downs and highs and lows vary a ton. But she is funny. As I enjoy watching her, I can’t wait to have our baby out in public and watch her/him look around, eyes darting everywhere, reaching out to touch everything and trying to grasp exactly what’s going on. From afar, parenting appears to be a daily science project.
