Anyone got Vista yet?

Hard to imagine how good it's gonna be. Considering how it's already been.
I saw these pictures, and thought: what the hay? I'll post 'em far me family t' say! (Sorry, I just turned Irish for a few seconds. Those responsible for phony accents and ironic enthusiasm have been sacked) Blog continues here...

I was startled, amused, and awe-struck by the sight of a crudely drawn Donald Duck probably scrawled by memory on this terrified lady's hut wall.

While this picture is funny, although it makes one wonder how staged the picture might have been.

I am so behind on blogging! Where does the time go?

This is a picture from Christmas time--you know these fine looking people. We went to Cedar Creek in Brea and met some of the Dayton family for dinner. Jane and I ordered coconut cake to share. She ate most of it.

Glen and Cindi better confiscate Sam II's fake ID, or else he might go down the path of doggie debauchery.

Haha, "beef extract and malt." Tasty!

Blogger Update--You'll have to do this to post again

Sorry for the inconvenience. Blogger made some updates, in part as a result of being bought some months ago by Google, and offered the owner of this blog to migrate to the new system.

Therefore, you will have to change your sign in to your Google account information. If you don't have a Google account, you will have to set one up. It was very easy for me to do. I hope it is for you too. If you have trouble, ask someone in your household to help you. You can do it, I know you can.

Go team!

Ice Pellets forcast in Chicago

Blogging from a Starbucks in Grand Rapids MI.

Ice Pellets
100% chance of precipitation according to Weather Underground.

Therefore, United Airlines has canceled our Grand Rapids to Chicago flight. We are stuck here until 6 AM tomorrow.

All is good; Cindi is with me. Hampton in is nearby. Who would think of traveling in the dead gray of winter!? Us!

Isn't David Beckham like the "Michael Jordan" of soccer? Either that, or, like, the "Dennis Rodman." Either way maybe I'll go check out the LA Galaxy this season.

When's futbol season start, anyone?

We've started bombing Somalia.

We're pretty busy fighting these days...

I saw a movie called Children of Men today, which, unfortunately felt very realistic, today. It was a great movie, however. Check it out!

On the phone with Bright Medical [back at home, after breakfast]

Me: [on hold for 6 minutes, 38 seconds. I love having a cell phone that keeps track of these things.]

Me after they finally answer: I had an incident this morning where my foot got run over by a cab. I am thinking I should have someone look at it.

Lady at the doctor's office: ewww! Can you hold please.

Woman, after a few moments: Dr. Galbreath says he can't do anything for you here. You need to go to Urgent Care and have it xrayed. Or you can go to the emergency room if you need a doctor to look at the xray and tell you what it means.

Me: do you know what time Urgent Care opens?

She: 2 PM.

Me: Ok, thanks for your help.

Cindi: Ok, I will drive you.

More soon.

Conversation with the cab driver [at the airport, before the paramedics came]

Cabby: are you ok? I am sorry, I didn't want to run over you. But the traffic cop made me drive over this way to get out of the way.

Me: You ran over my foot with your car.

Him: I couldn't see you on the ground like that.

Me: That's why I was yelling at you to back up.

Cindi: I knew it was serious because Glen was laughing.

Story, part one. [not in any order]

Paramedics arrive:

Me: It feels alternatively warm, then wet.

The paramedics: Blood pressure: 132/90; has a pulse. Do you want us to take you to the hospital where they can xray it?

Me: um, not sure. can I do that later today if it seems necessary?

Them: Well, I am sure you can do it later, but we can't really give you that advice. It's up to you.

Me: I will call my doctor from home.

Them: Ok, we will fill out some papers and give them to you--can we see your license please.
I like this lady's style. Not a bad cause, not at all!

George Bush isn't that fond of us, either!

There's a miniature one of these in my mom's house! Not quite as fire retardent... People always try to get Sweden's goat!

New Year New Twist to Glen's Ankle

I listened as he repeated the story to several uniformed people...something about a taxi cab rolling over his ankle. All I know is that I saw Glen fall to the ground with a cab at his side and I heard people yelling to the cab driver, "Back up!"

So there we were at LAX, 6:10am, Dick and Jane (a.k.a. Mom and Dad) standing on the curb, and Glen transporting suitcases to them from the trunk of the car. When suddenly, a cab came between him and the trunk of our car several yards away. Once the cab did back up, he got up and checked for injury. Then the traffic cops stepped in. Then the airport police. Then the fire department, engine, gurney and all came to the scene. Then the cab investigator. And the LAPD. Glen was not in any more danger nor did he appear to have sustained a break of any kind...bones that is. He did sustain a break in that it wasn't more serious. He can tell you the rest of the story. Crazy.
