A little nap with the World’s Youngest Blogger after church on Sunday. Frequent commenter and very old friend Jeff had dropped Da Tech Guy by somewhere around midnight. We rolled out around 0630 to get Pete to Mass at the Basilica, while I went to my heretical little Baptist house of worship, bringing up #Occupy in the context of Romans 13 in Sunday school.

When you’re this charismatically challenged, you need all the beauty sleep you can get:

Also, a shout out frequent commenter, TR Sterling, who brought brownies to CPAC: they were real, and they were fabulous. Spot on, mate!

    I sure do miss those days when the kids were able to sleep on my chest like that. Too bad the grand kids live so far away or I’d relive those days.

    Real brownies!  That means they had walnuts in them, right?

    ‘Post CPAC Rack’ – shouldn’t that be the title of a Rule 5 posting?
