Aweekstweets February 15-22 2015: the week Jason & Amie tied it on the strand

Witnessed Jason's barefoot wedding to the lovely Amie. Have to hand it to our son and his bride for tying the knot in style. See you in LA!

Thank you God for keeping the rain until after the wedding reception. You cooperated perfectly today on the beach for Jason & Amie’s wedding

What's w/newscaster's need to append "world-famous" 2 "Harlem Globetrotters" but not, say, to "Los Angeles Lakers"? Don't do their marketing

Sitting here adding all the new skills I was endorsed for on LinkedIn. Except scalability. My vertical scale maxed out at 5 foot 5 1/2

61° here at 7:07am in Foley, Alabama. Happy to be just sitting out here sipping my coffee without a jacket absorbing the morning.

ISIL stands for "Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant." Who calls it "The Levant" anymore? That's like calling China "Cathay."

My son's Alabaman mother-in-law Teresa tells me he speaks and moves like me. I told her he must have inherited my blunt Detroit accent.

Of course I'm healthy as a horse most of the time, but come down with a raging headcold just in time to see our son get married.

Sure is cold down here on the Gulf Coast. It was in the 20s when I woke up. At least I'm glad the sea didn't freeze like Niagara Falls.

Hotel business centers. Practically the only place left in the business world where they have desktop computers.

Glad to have another ex-Forresterite Rob Koplowitz joining IBM. Great analyst, great guy.

Traveling with my girls to see our boy and his lady tie the knot. On the beach.

RIP Lesley Gore. It’s impossible not to sing along to any of her hits.

Schrödinger's rat must suffered even greater uncertainty. Even if the cat died, rodent's prospects depended on how soon. Would he squeak by?
