I meant to leave this comment earlier, but got RUDELY interrupted by work - can you imagine? Anyhow, Mohamed Bob (whence this nickname?) looks ever so nice and cute - and I do LOVES me a kayaking man. As you know, I married my kayak instructor. So, good on you! M always sounds like such a lovely person, too - glad everything worked out so well for you both.
Let's just say that my schedule at work is very (ahem) flexible.
Mohamed Bob came about because we knew an American who converted to Islam in Morocco named Fatima Jane. Plus Mohamed Bob sounded nicer than "Generic Mohamed" or "Potential Terrorist Mohamed" or "Always Searched at the Airport Mohamed."
As for kayaking, more kudos to MB since at the time he didn't know how to swim. Poor kid. (I used to call him up during Ramadan and make him listen to the sound of frying bacon so he's been through worse.)
Long distance hugs!
