Have you ever received (or sent) an end of the year recap to friends and relatives? We get several each year. Some from folks we like to keep up with and others from people who we'd just as soon not keep up with, but we get it anyway. You probably know the type. You casually know the adults, but they detail the goings on of each child (who you've never met) and every time they've stepped out the door to either go on vacation or to the grocery store.

To find out where the the background comes from and my take on Mr. Kelby's method of producing it, hit the "Read More".
