This made me laugh out loud: Antique Mommy and I are apparently married to the same guy. (He's Antique Daddy, or AD in this post.) Like Mr. Fraulein, Antique Daddy is also an engineer. Coincidence? I think not.
THURSDAY UPDATE: I stand corrected -- seems like AD is in a technical field of some kind but is not actually an engineer. Sounds like the same pack rat rules still apply though!
