Welcome to the Family

I'm pleased to announce the arrival of the newest member of our family: Ted Bundy Fosdick.

Ted was born on December 31, 2007. He is made of heavy-gauge electrical conduit, PVC pipes, assorted tennis and racquetballs, and will soon develop a thick layer of foam padding. When fully grown he is expected to have accumulated 540 feet of duct tape. He is approximately 6'2", weighs less than 30 pounds, and has an unusually narrow shoulder width. Nevertheless, we love him anyway.

Ted is Chris's new grappling dummy for practicing Jiu-Jitsu moves, and is so affectionately named in order that we won't have any reservations beating up on him on a regular basis.

I personally think Ted's creepiness factor is rather high and that he has the face only a mother could love...let me rephrase that: a face only Chris could love. Hey, he may be ugly, but he's cheaper than therapy, or martial arts lessons for that matter. And when we go out of town, he can sit silhouetted in the window to keep the real creeps away, right?

Welcome to the family, Ted!

All I can say is: If this is the kind of welcome you give Ted, I can't wait to see the welcome for Samuel!
