Return to Our Youth

Today, Skii, Izzy and I are going Roller Skating!


Now, I can't speak for Skii, but I haven't been skating since 1991. Not to toot my own horn, I was a pretty good skater, but in these past 15 years, I'm sure my skills have gotten quite rusty! But I've dusted off my skates, bought some new laces, and am ready to hit the rink!



So, with that being said, everyone please say a prayer that neither Skii nor I break a hip or any other bone in our bodies while trying to just have some fun!



* Update: Neither Skii nor I broke a bone and Izzy only fell 3 times! She became more comfortable once we got "cheater skates" for her instead of real skates. She just couldn't quite get the hang of having wheels on her feet that go forwards AND backwards....and quickly at that! Hope everyone had a great New Years!

A PSA for the masses

When you visit this guy:



You tend to have to visit this guy afterward:


Or at least I have found this to be true the last TWO times I've eaten with the BK at two different ones! Whether these episodes are connected or not, I'm going to try to never eat there again!

Wicked Wind

With the wild winds we had on Friday night, this is the aftermath for my neighbors!


This 50-yr-old Oak tree came crashing down on Friday night.


Some of the limbs are touching the power and phone lines coming from their house.


As you can see, the roots didn't get pulled out.
Rather, it got snapped at the base!
Thank God the little animal statue wasn't hurt!


However, their swing wasn't so lucky.


Neither was their bird bath.


Here's just another view of the fallen Mighty Oak.


They're just fortunate that it didn't fall a different way that would have damaged their house or their NEW car!
