Welcome to Earth, Violet: Lent in Casablanca, Night 17

Friday morning, Mr & Mrs Steve the Book Guy happily welcomed the lovely, brand-new Violet to their family.  Violet checked in at a healthy, vigorous 9 lbs 6 oz, with ten fingers, ten toes, and one belly button (under construction).

Violet is less than 24 hours old as I write this, and as of yet, she has not learned to read. Knowing her parents, Violet will be reading by Easter.

Far away, in a Paris about to be occupied by Nazis, a cynical man and a beautiful woman fill their glasses with expensive champagne, and raise a toast. They clink their crystal glasses, and the oh-so-apropos words echo across nearly seven decades and an ocean: “Here’s lookin’ at you, kid.”

Fairfarren, Violet, and welcome to the show. 🙂

  1. This is our Steve? stevebetz?

    Love the photo and the toast by Bogie, btw. 🙂

  2. Noooo! Not Steve Betz. Steve the Book Guy is a coworker who’s always reading a book, and who has given me many recommendations.

    Then again, Steve Betz may have had a baby yesterday, but that’s independent of Steve the Book Guy’s new bundle.

    Happy weekend, Professor Gozen. 🙂
