I can't take much more!

You know when someone has their house or any other type of private property such as a car vandalized they say they feel violated?

Yeah, well, it's true.

Larry, Shelby, and I left this morning to go to school as we normally do.
Took her to school and ran a couple of errands.

The weather here had been cool so I didn't pay much attention to what at the time I thought was dew on my car windows.
When making a turn into the parking lot of a parts store Larry and I heard what sounded like beads rolling around in the back dash. We both turned around to see what maybe Shelby had put up the window when Larry said,
"Your back windshield is busted!"
Sure enough.
So after a few choice words we drove back to the apartment where I filed a report with the management office in case it had been on their property and called the police to file a report with them.
While standing outside talking to the prpoerty manager one of the maintenance guys asked about what had been done. Come to find out there has been a crime spree here in Greenville where the vandals are shooting in windshields with BB or pellet guns.
So I have been a victim of a what could have been a car break in.
When looking at the glass, near the bottom of the window you can see where the pellets struck the glass not once but twice.
The windows on my car are tinted so honestly I think that was what saved my car from being actually broken into because the glass never gave way.

Until then...

Snagglepuss - Take 2

Does anyone know what the rules are for the toothfairy returning for a second time in a 24 hour time period?

Is she on call 24/7?

Here's hoping.

Last night the toothfairy brought Shelby a gold dollar coin, the new animated Barbie movie, and a certificate. I think Shelby was amazed by the whole thing.

It's funny how just two missing teeth can change the way you look.

It's goofy looking but very cute at the same time.

Until then...

The beginning of a Snagglepuss

After much anticipation it's finally happened.
The loss of the FIRST tooth.
It had been loose for what seems forever.
Ok. Several weeks.
Now that she knows there is virtually no pain the next ones will come out at a more rapid pace.
After we wrapped it up and put in the pocket of her Tooth Angel bear she quickly got in her jammies and said that she needed to go to bed so the tooth fairy could come.
I don't think she quite knows what the tooth fairy does, but she knows it's important.
Until then...

This confirms it

This definitly confirms what I've been thinking all along. I still don't know which direction to go in.

Your Issue Profile: 56% Obama, 44% McCain

Truth be told, you're not really satisfied with either of the candidates.

You could vote for either of them. You are the typical coveted swing voter.

You may want to narrow yourself down to a particular set of issues in order to pick your president.

Or start looking at third party candidates. One of them might suit you better.

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday, my dear Larry!

May I introduce the newest member of our family...


He is 16 weeks old.

We got him from one of our neighbors.

First he melted my heart when I saw how he took to Shelby.

She asked if we could keep him and I told her she would have to ask daddy.

Larry has been dead set on not having anymore cats.

But then came Sebastian.

(of course it didn't help when Shelby stuck out her lip and said please as she looked at him with her big brown eyes)

His coloring is completely opposite of Akira's. He's half grey and half white.

Akira has accepted him as a grandson, and well Gennie thinks he's a new toy.

They all get along very well.

Shelby has taken the responsibility of feeding, watering, and cleaning his litterbox.

So he stays in her bathroom when we're gone or asleep.

As for being fixed, that is in the VERY NEAR future.

Until then...Tuckered out
