A Leap Day

Bob and Felix playing the game of Life.

If I leap back to the last time our family had a February 29th, Bob was in pre-school. We lived in the old house. We still had Daisy and Vi. Teddy didn't live with us yet and Max the goldfish was still a baby/roe/caviar. Mr. Rosenberg was at his previous job and I had been writing Smacksy for almost three years. 

The years since then took vigorous flight. If I take a minute to fast forward to next Leap Day, I start getting a little panicky at how fast I know it will be here and all of the changes that will come with the passage of time. But today, we've landed here. And here is good. 

Happy Leap Day.
