 Did I mention Thing Two turned 12?
 He did, and he had a great time with a couple buddies to celebrate.

Thing One is in a play. They are rehearsing twice a week and it looks like it's going to be a great show.
He also had a little Emily Dickinson in the yard yesterday and I had to get a picture. The juvenile robins are just big enough to get themselves into trouble but not quite grown up enough to get themselves out (wonder if that reminds the child of someone he knows). Anyway, the bird seems quite calm once he was perched on Thing One's glove and appeared to enjoy the view!

Logo™ the Obscure

Last night I ended up breaking a window in order to get into the house where my keys, cell phone, and laptop. The glass guy is measuring it today to replace the pane I threw a rock through.

When I told the tale today I was called a vandal. I replied, "Hey, at least I'm not a Goth."

*blink, blink*

Ah well, I thought it was funny.

A card for every occasion

I found this site through a friend who sent me an Ides of March card. Here is how you know you have an awesome friend;
1. She/he knows about a site like someecards.
2. She/he remembers the Ides of March.
3. She/he sends you a funny card for the occasion.

Here is a little example of their fabulous ecards.

This year my family is taking me.

It's a beautiful day for it!

Hope you had a fabulous May Day!

We grilled burgers and had s'mores over a fire in the back yard.
We have freshly mowed grass, partially wacked weeds, and a mostly tiled tub.
I took Thing One out for a couple hours of quality road time. He only tried to kill us once.
I also got to go for a motorcycle ride.
I must say, it's good a gooood day.
