  1. “Jumping the shark” refers to the episode of Happy Days where Fonzie jumps a shark while on water skis. It’s completely ridiculous and heralded that the show needed to be ending very very soon. It has come to be used for any ridiculous moment where someone really must just stop, now!

  2. Congrats on the wedding! I loved all the pictures. I started reading your blog back when Malcolm picked up Millie the cat.

    About the “Jumping the Shark”. I knew it was in reference to Happy Days but most recently heard it in a Seinfeld Recap show. They said their “Jumping the Shark” episode was when George pretended to be a marine biologist and saved the whale from the Titleist Golf Ball that Kramer hit into the ocean! That’s when I found out what “Jumping the Shark” meant….thanks for the memory! Thanks for saving Millie! And thanks for sharing your life. Great house! Congrats again!
