what's it all about, Korea? WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?!

I was sitting at a stop light the other day when suddenly my car was bouncing like some of those tricked out cars with the throbbing base you hear coming down the street ten minutes before it actually gets there. When I got home, I opened the hood to check the air filter and found this nest under it. It's hard to tell from the picture, but it's a good sized handful. What the hell gives with rodents and Rios?!

I gave Mr. G hell for feeding the zillion cats that hang around here three times a day. I told him he's raising a bunch of Obama cats who'd rather bawl for free food then hunt their own! Any day now I expect to find a mouse (or worse!) curled up with O'Flannagan in her comfy little bed. And she'll be all, "WHAT?! I can't kill my little FRIEND!"

time marches on

I forgot to share my good news from earlier this summer...Male Offspring #2 (barely) graduated high school! AND he moved out!!

Yep, two kids living in the shed now.....

*insert "Go America!" fist pump here*

I was taking my morning walk and the Norfolk Southern passed me. They were flying two American flags off the front sides of the engine.

And yes, it made me cry to see it.

Thank you, Norfolk Southern employee!!

jailhouse rock

Male Offspring #8 begged to go with me on my walk today. (Translation: I made the little chubbers go.)

We passed a house that had a rabbit pen in the side yard and there was a wild rabbit outside of the pen looking in.

Male Offspring #8 said, "Look, Mom! His dad is in jail, too!"
