Hey man! Didn't know you were still lurking here on LJ. Belated but still very Happy Birthday to you!
Family is doing ok. Louis is still being a Republican fucktard... er, I mean, patriotic government contractor out in DC; he and Lucia have two boys, and they must be ... 8 and 5 or so by now. Eeek.
Lisanna is up in Denver; she and Alex have two little girls (6 and 3), and are expecting another baby at the end of the summer or so. Alex just left the security of MCI for a job with a startup firm, so that is exciting.
Joe is, well, Joe. :) He's still living in the basement of the Cook St house in Denver; as I mentioned above (in my response to raindancer
, from the other
Ewing clan within 200ft of your parents' house!), he does some freelance video work, but is currently putting in hours doing research on Lisanna's project.
Mom and Dad were both out in Virginia for most of the spring, and I think my dad is out there still, helping my brother slog through taxes. Mom is probably back down in Louisiana by now.
Still no trips to TX on the horizon; my schedule is starting to fill up for the summer, and until I bail on this job (or at least take a sabbatical), I just don't see much PTO opening up. Once it does, though, road trip city. :)
Hope your family is doing well! I will hopefully be in LC for July 4th -- I know, don't get me started, but there's a bit of a gathering of the NMSU / Ars Nova Guild pod happening then -- if you're around, we should meet up; even if your not, I should stop by your parents' place and give my regards. :)
