This day in 1972

So what was going on in 1972? Well... HBO began, American swimmer Mark Spitz won 7 gold medals, Richard Nixon was re-elected president, Atari introduced the first arcade game "pong", Hewlett-Packard introduced the first hand held calculator for $395, Evel Knievel jumped 35 cars and broke 93 bones. Shaquille O'Neal, Cameron Diaz, Snoop Doggy Dogg, Eminem, and Mia Hamm were all born. Seems like a long time ago doesn't it? 36 years to be exact! And on this day 36 years ago Rae Jean Robinson delivered her first child - Nicole Robinson, my wife.


Here is what Nicole got for a Birthday present:

(me, Nicole, Jaxon, Myles, Cooper, and two weeks worth of luggage) came back from Silverton all hanging outta the windows. Go ahead, add it up. Doesn't (shouldn't) fit in a Ford Escape! We had officially outgrown our cars. So it was time to go against the grain and buy a fuel hogging V8 Chevy Tahoe. Got all the bells and whistles and got a great deal cause they can't sell 'em. Nicole likes it and that's all that matters. I love you Nicole and thank you for all you do! ...anyone wanna buy a 99 Audi A4 w/ 101K?

Last, but not least, guess what national holiday it is today in Finland? That's right - National Sleepy Head Day!! No joke! Check it out. Anyone who knows Nicole knows she likes to sleep and today she slept until 1:30 p.m. - hey it's her b-day, she can do anything she wants. I guess she's catching up on all the sleep she's lost feeding Myles 3 times a night.
