He's not my real cousin but Tony Hoyt comes pretty close. After all, we've got the same last name. We're kinda around the same age. Our daughters -- Betsy Hoyt, pictured here with her daughters Sara Jane and Charlotte, and Ali, my daughter -- were married on exactly the same date. Plus, Tony and I had a pretty successful run together at Cosmopolitan . The Hoyt boys have stayed in touch, and become even better friends, as the years have gone by. As for Betsy and the girls: they celebrated Thanksgiving in Vermont with Cousin T. "The Other One" (that's me) was there in spirit!

When I was out on a ride in late October, I pedaled past Ken's Upholstery shop on Williston in Minnetonka ... and had to turn back to snap this pic! What a cool sign, I said to myself; of course the guy who works on chairs has a humongous chair built in and around his mail box. Who could miss it? Why would you get your chair covered anywhere else?
