Maybe I'm Biased

But is this the cutest kid or what?

My nephew Matt

My brother-in-law, Matthew, and my brother (Matt's dad)

I love that kid with all my heart. He's fun, funny, smart, easygoing, a bit too sports-addicted, and (I'm sorry, Matt, I know it's uncool to say this about a teenage boy) a real sweetheart. And he loves to tease me, which I think I like best of all.

He's 15, a couple of years too young for you.

And that lake is heaven; wait until you see the photos I post late tonight or tomorrow, once I've sorted through them all. I'm going to start conniving my way to a house on that lake ...

15? hmmm...it is the south. just joking!!!

so are you more of a lake person or an ocean person? perhaps you are a desert or mountain person? the possibilites could be endless...

Lake/mountain all the way ... although I've never really spent much time in the desert.

What a great, open smile that kid has! I suppose that makes up for over-zealous sports addictions.

NANCY: Yes, he is. Glad to see you have such a great eye.

M: You'd be frightened to know how many stingrays we had to shoo off at Lake Burton ... which is where they filmed Deliverance.

OLD LADY: Yes, he is; he just doesn't know it yet.

BRAT: We had a great time. And Matt is a dream nephew -- and his sister is a great niece. I'm lucky that way.

KFLUFF: Doesn't he have a great smile? He has an encyclopedic knowledge of sports. It's quite fascinating, actually ... and he's fascinated by how little I know and often quizzes me.

He's a cutie, and that is a great age. I love my boys at school, they are so funny and spastic and honest. Girls tend to be much less amusing at that age.

What's wrong with being addicted to sports ? I'd argue on his behalf and say that sports are THE best addiction to have at his age.

And teasing is a form of of regard so I think your love is reciprocated.

LULU: He's a great kid -- and funny and honest.

M: You always hear banjos.

BEN: The sports thing has been a running gag with Matthew and me since he was five, since I don't follow many and he follows all. And I love to be teased!

He resembles you so much! Guess that is the family genes, huh?

I wanna go to the lake... can I, huh? huh? Do I need to schmooze with the other cuz and her hubby?

Matt definitely looks like a Coffey. But he's more laidback like his mom. He's a great kid.

I'm gonna marry the widowed dad who owns the home so that I can snag that house. Get me to Tybee, I'll get you to the lake.
