Kevin @ 16
& who's in the photo on the wall?
As Lucinda Sans says, Kevin did love that Kliban poster. Go to http://www.eatmousies.com/intro.html to see a Flash animation/song of it.
Kevin also loved The Three Stooges, which drove our mom nuts. We did seem to watch them all, didn't we? I can still sing that song "B-A, BAY, B-E, BEE, B-I, BAY-BEE-BY, B-O, BO ..."
Well, we finally got some snow, even if it's only about an inch. Enough to make the yards white-looking, with taller stuff sticking thru. Too bad the Kiddies can't go skiing, however, they've mid-term exams to study for. I wasn't scheduled to work today, the SO is a government employee, and school's out for MLK day, so it was nice that the whole family got to sleep in. (It's past 10 am and we haven't seen Kiddie A yet.)
Been surfing other blogs again. I'm surprised by all the repeats that I see ... wonder how many blogs there are and why a supposedly random next blog key would bring up a few more than once. Also I got "not found" blog sites w/o a button to go onward - several times.
So many blogs are not in english. There seem to be more that are evangelical than of a liberal religious bent (I have come across a couple where the blogger was complaining about family pressuring them to be more Christian). So many seem to be Canadians or from the U.K.
Anyway, kinda interesting. Here's one that has some nice photos of the author and a rather large cat: http://rhini.blogspot.com/ (also some interesting photos of her w/ a scarf... why?)
Here (http://prattoons.blogspot.com/) is a site by a Philly person who likes rabbits. On a photo down the page shows a wall w/ a lot of lighthouse photos, one of SO's favorite things to photograph.
Here's another Pennsylvanian http://bumpintheroad.blogspot.com/, some funny things, some sad. I'm tempted to answer his "ARE WE THERE YET?" with a NO!
http://www.sephlawrance.co.uk/news.htm reports the murder of a young man who reminds me of Kevin. It makes me wonder what he would've thought of all of this, and what he might have blogged. Actually, that's almost a scary thought ... don't know whether to laugh or cry!
Well, Salem is on my lap, snoring, and SO is asking what's for dinner. I dunno. Being culinarily challenged w/ two Kiddies who don't like most of what I make, it's a question that I hate. Gotta go for now.
You might remember some weeks ago I blogged that the "Pickles" comic strip made a big impact on our family. I emailed the artist, Brian Crane:
Thanks to Aral, I'm this kind of dog - not what I would've picked, fer sure! 'Specially since I'm not small by anyone's reckoning! I'm more likely to crush small kids, not the other way 'round. LOL
You Are a Chihuahua Puppy
Small, high strung, and loyal.
You do best in the city with a adults - young kids could crush you!
It's January and Farm Show time again in Pennsylvania. The local myth is that we get a ton of snow when the Farm Show is going on. We've sure gotten alot of rain - if it had been colder then we would have had a ton of snow. Here at home I've kept the TV on the official Farm Show channel PCN, but it hasn't been my favorite stuff. Kinda amusing to see all the Ag kids who have been crowned princess, queen or ambassador of this or that - Lamb & Wool Queen, Dairy Princess, etc. One was Maple Sweetness something or other. FFA President, Penn State Ag Student Representatives and more. There were about a dozen of these young people. Then there was a State Police Mounted Drill, Gov. Rendell's opening ceremony, with bits of Edible Nut and chocolate cake judging thrown in. Then it was High School Rodeo events for the rest of the day.
