Fred and Val Swarr the best parents (next to mine) anyone could want. Very laid back, almost boheimian, they have kept me from getting their two boys into serious trouble. Val is the only outside my parents who could ground me for three months. After high school graduation. Fred is very softspoken and a extremely talented artist. To quote Val: " I love them. LOVE THEM!"
Gabriel Beau Swarr. The Man. The Legend. Words can't describe him. I've got so many stories about him. He was my best man at our wedding. I met Gabe in seventh grade. He would shake my desk in class. The rest is history. He was the first to get me over my head in comics. He got me out of my puny state of Pennsylvania and to the magical land of California, twice. I would never go there for any other reason. I'll be taking the wife to this place of depravity for his wedding. Karla, his fiance, is just as cool as he is. Only, she is not as over the top as Gabe is. I can't go into everything wonderful and mystical concerning Gabe, (there's is too much) but I know he is the best friend I am so glad to of met.
Gabe's brother is Zach. Man of a thousand talents. Former radio DJ. Former Marine reservist (with time served in the Middle East. Proud of you bub!) Master of Transformer lore and pro-wrestling enthusaist he is a true jack of all trades. Right now, home improvement guru is his forte. With as much stuff as he dabs in, its no wonder his wife Maribeth is a saint. And just like Gabe, Zach has so many GOOD stories over the years that is can't get into. He is a great friend and a brother nutball. Of course, the next generation of Swarr is the next best hope for sanity.
Declan is that next generation. Smart as a whip, adorable, and bouncy, he is the perfect little man. Women love him. He is going be a heartbreaker. Declan may act cute and cuddly, but he knows it. The wife and I can't get enough of him.
So that's the Swarrs. I hope they like my little tribute to my adoptive family. They have been there for me in many ways. I love them very much. Now if I can get over this cold I can go over to see them and not worry about getting them sick. Catch you on the flipside! Next Time: Wednesday Night Church Update!
