Feeling a Bit Chuffed 

I know there's a lot of things I need to blog from the past week or three (all the usual excuses about work), but here are two things that make me feel a bit pleased/proud.

First, this morning during Evelin's 36-week check up — all's well, baby is head down and at -1 or -2 station (I don't know exactly what that means, but Evelin said the long and the short of it is that the baby's probably not coming this weekend) — Celeste and I tagged along. While Evelin's laying on the table being palpated by the midwife, Celeste made a sign I didn't recognize. I asked her what she was talking about and she said "Mumma" and then made the sign again. Evelin asked what was up (the midwife was standing in a position that kept Evelin from seeing what Celeste was saying), and I described the sign as a sort of turning of the hands near the shoulders/armpits. Evelin said is it DIAPER? And Celeste let out a loud "Uh-huh!" She cracked everyone in the room up, saying that Evelin was having her diaper changed ...

Second, I just got an e-mail from some who worked for a short time at my college radio station while I was general manager. I'll just let the e-mailer speak for herself:
Is this the T. Carter Ross from KNWD?
If so, i just found a photograph of a permission note you had written on my hand back in 1990.
The sorority RA's in LSMSA's Caddo Hall were giving me a problem for breaking dorm curfew to attend KNWD staff meetings. ...
The cool thing is that she now works for a major broadcaster and attributed her time at the station under my watch for getting her interested in radio ...
