My son Shane will probably have an after-school snack around 4:00 PM EST, eat dinner around 6:30 PM EST and have some popcorn while we watch TV between 7:30 and 8:00 PM EST.

I only mention this as I thought that some of my many "friends" in the circus industry could save themselves a little time and come by then and take the food DIRECTLY out of my child's mouth.

Thanks guys. I really appreciate it!

Sounds like you have a case of "dirty bustards".
From Wikipedia
Family: Otididae

Bustards, including floricans and korhaans, are large terrestrial birds mainly associated with dry open country and steppes in the Old World. They make up the family Otididae (formerly known as Otidae).
They were renowned by the ancient Arabs for being unnaturally stupid.


Hey Pat-- when does he have candy?

Because I've always wondered about the phrase "As easy as taking candy from a baby" and maybe we could run some experiments. My limited experience with food and babies says that taking food away from that baby is not as easy as it sounds.

Knowing Shane, I'm likely to get a finger or two to the eye, but that's worth it, y'know?

Thanks for the time table, though.

And what are the last four digits of your social? :o)

You make some interesting points, Adam.
If you can get past the teeth and develop finger callouses, you'll have a fighting chance.
Gloves are too clumsy.
(Shin guards and face-shields are recommended accessories)

um... Pat...
I'm partial to "cracker-jack" and "s'mores" :D
