Our Family Motto

Dad always told us our family motto was “Illegitimus Non Carborundum”, which, loosely translated from the Latin, means “Don’t let the bastards grind you down.” Though it is the motto for any number of families, we now legitimately own it. Well, we own a version of it, I suppose. Good advice, along with "pull your socks up and get on with life," and "keep smiling," all of which are Vintage Dad.

There are five siblings in our family, ranging in age from 28-53. We each have very different professions, lives, situations, and geographic locations, except for the two still in St. Louis. We’ll each be taking turns writing posts, and some of our kids will pop in from time-to-time as well.

Let the games begin!

and for those of you who don't really know the family, the 28-53 is correct. Not a typo. And yes, same Mommy and Daddy, and we all get along.
