A bit of magic

Lloyd and I watched “Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium”, and there was a nice scene where the little boy puts glow-in-the-dark stars all over Mr. Magorium’s hospital room so he has ‘enough space to sleep’.

Showering with candy

Well, we’ve been to McCook and back, and lived to tell the tale. It was uneventful – Lloyd met with his Republican friends and they did some stuff, I looked around downtown McCook and went to their Wal-Mart. We were back on the road toward home by noon. The meeting was 3 1/2 hours away […]

Carrots got legs!

(Do you know that B.C. comic strip?) I know my picture-taking skills stink but seriously, doesn’t this carrot look like it has a knee? Well, ‘had’ a knee.

SuperSnacker & Me

So, that snack-making thingie is turning out to be pretty cool. I’m certain I’ve received more that $3 worth of joy from it, and it also satisfies my desire to have a GT Xpress. (I tell you, I am a sucker for infomercials. I will watch that one every time it comes on. That and […]
