Why, people often ask us, don't we combine photos with our weekly journal? Well, for one thing, we scarcely have time to put our photos into albums, let alone scan them and post them online. For another, the sad fact is that our day-to-day life is every bit as tiresome and monotonous as anyone else's. Photos, week after week, would only reinforce - in color - the painfully obvious. However, we are accustomed to serve the call of our fans, numbering as they do well into the tens. So, here, forthwith, is our family's typical day laboriously pasted together from timeless Formost Self-Adhesive Clip Art, circa 1981.
Ondine and John. That's Ondine on the left.
The house down the street.
The house down the street from that one.
John works hard all day.
Ondine works hard too.
But, she always makes time to read to Roy and Leo.
Ahh, the kids are in school. Ondine catches up on her phone calls.
We don't know what Valerie Harper is doing in our house, but it sure isn't the vacuuming.
When we discipline our children, we do so with compassion, neutrality, and no small amount of glee.
We usually sit down to dinner together.
Roy and Leo sure love their food!
After the kids go to bed, we sometimes watch TV.
Usually we read for a while.
At the end of the day, we have very little energy for romance.
