The family across the street from us has the most beautifully landscaped yard (for Southern Nevada) in the neighborhood. The fake riverbed had to be re-done by the landscape crew because it was originally "too deep." She has asked that we not let our dog anywhere NEAR her plants when he is marking territory. The rose bushes are meticulously groomed.
So today after school when the little boy from down the street jumped out of his car and picked a few of her flowers, my kids and I watched with gales of laughter hoping she was napping with the baby and not reloading.
Maybe she won't notice...

- I dropped my children off at school this morning for their FREE public education
- I went to the Doctor's office and was treated by a highly educated woman doctor
- I stopped by Starbucks and grabbed a cold drink
- I went shopping in several stores and even spent a little money
If you're thinking, Big Deal, it IS a big deal.
My heartfelt thanks to all our fine men and women serving and sacrificing in the United States military who defend my freedom and make these things possible.

The Boogeyman lived in the closet at the back of the long hall in my grandmother's bedroom. I know this is true because my big brothers told me so!
I couldn't imagine why anyone would pay 25 cents for a Coke when you could get Shasta for 17 cents and still have enough allowance left over for some candy.
Was Burger King married to Dairy Queen?
We were priveleged to be taken swimming at Lion Lake.
Oh yeah...I also walked to school uphill both ways in 4 feet of snow.

The scooter relay - with a teacher standing by
to drench them with a hose.
The tall kid seems to be having a good time.
He REALLY can run! I'm amazed.
The best one was the next round (which I didn't
capture in a photo) where he had his drink with
him. He put the drink down, popped the ring and
caught it, picked up his drink, and ran back to
his line. Very funny to witness in person.
