First, my dad's brother--who hasn't been in contact with my dad since a few years before I was born--is finally stopping by Florida for a visit. He's ironically been in Thailand for the past 10 years, and now that the brothers are smoothing things over, I might actually get to meet one of my mysteriously absent uncles (there are two) when Mike and I visit his family. Not that we have actual plans, but I assume we'll get there eventually.
The other cool bit of news is the link above: a Duke University news article about a team of researchers and students who are taking a trip to Uganda on Aug. 9th to update all of the medical equipment at a neurosurgery hospital. My cousin--whom I've not seen or spoken to in 8 years--is one of the Scrub Techs going on the trip. Along with the link came contact info; so now I'm getting in touch with her, in hopes that she'll have a moment to respond before she leaves and in hopes of getting back in touch with her twin siblings as well.
Two family silences ending in one morning...It's such a wonderful feeling! I always hated that my uncles left my dad's life before I entered it, and I've never been able to understand quite why my cousins disliked me enough to avoid me for 8 years (my little sister's entire life, by the way...The last time they saw her, she was an infant being baptized). Now, all the drama might be over.
I know this has very little to do with The Flynn Tribe, but I felt the need to share. Besides, the trip to Uganda is awesome and it's nice to hear about people helping others.

On to the topic of this post, however. Mike and I are getting a Pembroke Welsh Corgi puppy in about 8 weeks (it's due any day now). We've been on an all-out name hunt for the past few weeks. Here are some of the ideas we've come up with (gender and color are up in the air):
If you happen to have any awesome ideas (or opinions on the names listed) let us know! We'll probably create a blog for him/her once we've taken enough pictures to invoke nausea.
- Time: when you're ready to eat till whenever you have to go
- Where: the newly refurbished 207 Market Street
- Extras: side dishes welcome, especially if you have a specialty

but for some reason it no longer recognizes me as its author. I think it came from the switch from the old style blog to the new style blog. It kind of rots, cause I was about to post an entry about the weekend, tying the past to the present and providing continuity for the clan at large (you believe that?).
I don't know if I'll bother to fire up a new one. Peace.
And thanks for all the toys! Whoever left the sleeping bag, let me know and I'll get it back to you.

Bryan O'Lynn was a gentleman born
He lived at a time when no clothes they were worn,
But as fashion went out, of course Bryan walked in
"Whoo, I'll lead the fashions," says Bryan O'Lynn.
Bryan O'Lynn had no breeches to wear
He got him a sheepskin to make him a pair,
With the fleshy side out and the woolly side in,
"Whoo, they're pleasant and cool." says Bryan O'Lynn.
Bryan O'Lynn had no shirt to his back,
He went to his neighbor's and borrowed a sack
Then he puckered the meal bag up under his chin
"Whoo, they'll take them for ruffles," says Bryan O'Lynn.
Bryan O'Lynn had no hat to his head,
He thought that the pot would do him instead,
Then he murdered a cod for the sake of its fin,
"Whoo, 'twill pass for a feather." says Bryan O'Lynn.
Bryan O'Lynn was hard up for a coat
He borrowed a skin of a neighboring goat
With the horns sticking out from his oxters, and then
"Whoo, they'll take them for pistols," says Bryan O'Lynn.
Bryan O'Lynn had no stockings to wear,
He bought him a rat's skin to make him a pair,
He then drew them on and they fitted his shin,
"Whoo, they're illegant wear," says Bryan O'Lynn.
Bryan O'Lynn had no brogues to his toes,
He hopped on two crab shells to serve him for those,
Then he split up two oysters that matched just like twins,
"Whoo, they'll shine out like buckles," says Bryan O'Lynn.
Bryan O'Lynn had no watch to put on,
He scooped out a turnip to make him a one
Then he planted a cricket in under the skin
"Whoo, they'll think it's a-tickin," says Bryan O'Lynn.
Bryan O'Lynn to his house had no door,
He'd the sky for a roof and the bog for a floor,
He'd a way to jump out and a way to swim in,
"Whoo, it's very convanient," says Bryan O'Lynn.
Bryan O'Lynn, his wife, and wife's mother,
They all went home o'er the bridge together,
The bridge it broke down and they all tumbled in,
"Whoo, we'll go home by water," says Bryan O'Lynn.

The news from Florida is fairly bland: it's hot (which I dislike) and I plan to avoid the beach and 3rd degree sunburns for spring break. Mike says it's insanely cold up in Mass., and I wish I were there to know what "insanely cold" felt like.
I hope everyone is well!

Please feel free to use it to announce parties, engagements, etc.
If you are having trouble trying to post something contact me (Mike), Art, Dara, Tori, or anyone else who uses blogger regularly. They should be able to help you to get up and running. I'm going to give them each administrator access. That means that they will be able to give you rights to post.
Please e-mail me your e-mail address if you are a Flynn, significant other of a Flynn, or are directly related to the Flynn family (meaning if you have the last name of "Sullivan, Mastrangelo, Vongs..., etc. ")
If you don't have an e-mail address and would like a FlynnTribe.com one call me. I'll set one up for you.
