I'm getting old

This is (about?) the 400th post on this blog. I'm not convinced of the figure because there are a few posts I've redacted for various reasons, like how pictures of my kids showed up when you searched for 'Vaginamite' in Google Images.

Anyway, on the topic of getting old, 2011 continued a worrying trend for me in the passing of a couple more of my relations. In 2010 I lost a cousin who had been like an older brother for me and last year I lost an uncle and my remaining grandparent.

It was weird because soon after grandma Royal died I received a box of toys for my kids in the mail from her, which included this Wizard of Oz puppet glove.
