If you've never met my brother-in-law, Allen, you're missing out. He's practically perfect in every way. Have I ever mentioned how awesome he is? It seems like I have at least a million times...maybe that's just how often I think it. Not only is he very tall, but he also is a very funny guy, and if you have crooked teeth he will change your life (for the better). He's the go-to man for making plans for your group's night out or extended vacation. He can find the good deals, he can make the arrangements, he can research the hotel and activity choices, he can spring for a limo to take you to the Tennessee Theater to see Nickel Creek perform. He likes to hold Lydia as much as she'll let him. He has a knack for finding great new music. He's crafted an excellent home theater room where he'll invite you to see all the movies you missed when they were out (and I'll tell you what, it is head and shoulders above going to the Dollar Theater in terms of comfort, visibility, and smell). He's always willing to come over and lend his man-power to moving heavy things like pianos and hide-a-beds. He even used to have a truck, which he was more than willing to lend out for hauling things like pianos and hide-a-beds. He's got a lot of cool hobbies and he's not afraid to branch out and try new ones. He can juggle. He's just so all-around great that I finally decided he needed a post all of his own. Good luck with your hopes and dreams, Allen.
