Kevin Matthews - KevHead.Com University of Stupidity

Today I introduced my 9 year old to Kevin Mathews. He just turned 9 and is now of age to understand the humor, I hope. And, Erik has AM swim practices on many days and is taken to school by my wife. So, in the mornings, Grant and I are home alone. Now we'll be in the habit of being with Kevin and Jim Shorts and the weather from Michigan.

Posting a lost puppy sign.

I wish Kevin had some podcasts. Oh well. We can listen to the live stream.

Grant's class went to Heinz Hall on a field trip to hear the Pgh Symphony. I went too. Then that night there was a violin lesson -- as with most Tuesdays with Jennifer, our violin instructor. She also teaches the son of the Symphony's conductor. The photo was NOT from the field trip -- but of a Christmas Concert at PPG's Winter Garden before Christmas.
