What's left of my Christmas ornament after last night's Wii tennis game

Last night we were playing a mean game of Wii tennis when I accidentally whacked an ornament right off of our Christmas tree. It flew into the wall behind our TV set and shattered into a million pieces.

I wish I had that to watch again in slow motion. It was a direct hit.
The hook was still hanging on the tree.

I have weird dreams.

Last night I dreamed that our pastor's wife published a book of cartoons that she drew. The cartoons were hilarious, a lot like George Booth cartoons. It got excellent reviews, including one by Barbara Bush.

(As far as I know, our pastor's wife is not an artist, and Barbara Bush is not a cartoon critic). Now I wish I could remember what the cartoons looked like so I could draw them myself.

the latest

Well, the recession has now impacted us directly. If you haven't already heard, George lost his job in a mass lay-off.

We want to stay where we are, but it looks like that will not be an option.

I don't blog so much anymore. Instead I Twitter.

I've been spending my afternoons in Starbucks. Since we got wifi in here, I can finally enjoy my favorite coffee while I work. I like Panera for lunch, but I like Starbucks coffee better. But Panera makes great caramel lattes. If you get one, make sure to ask for a big mug.

hey everyone

I am using the internet in Starbucks for the first time! They have a new thing with AT&T. Just buy a gift card to use for your coffee purchases, and you get 2 hours a day of free WiFi. They made me happy.

Vacation Souveniers



I found this scarf on the ground in Yosemite National Park. I took it home and washed it, and kept it for myself. If it's yours, you can have it back, really, just let me know and you can have it.

And I bought this hat. I needed a new hat.

I support Charlie Brown. I will wholeheartedly support a Brown/Snoopy ticket.

woo hoo!

I created my very first animated gif.


What I've been doing instead of blogging


I've been obsessed with adding new stuff to my Cafepress shops and learning html so the shops look more professional.



Cute flowers. (Inspired by my trip to Japan).




This drawing started out as a Pomeranian. It worked out better as a cat.




A summer day in the kiddie pool.



A Jack Russell Terrier.




I improved this from a previous drawing.




A French Doggie.

Anyone else have this problem? Blogger won't let me title my posts. It turns it into a bunch of question marks.

Am I looking at this right? Is the goalie a SNAKE?

Everything had been going so well...

I have explained this accident too many times today. Tonight I will just explain it in pictures.

This tractor

Made a left turn into this car

Which then smashed into me

We are all alive. But I am very unhappy that this happened, especially on my way home from my final car repair before we were going to sell this car.

this is serious business

All week I have been in charge of preschool play-dough at VBS.







This boy (kid in the middle) is on a mission to make the longest play-dough snake. I think this one looks more like a small intestine.

Random Eavesdroppings, TEEN EDITION



"
We shot water balloons off our dock at boats and then the police came.

YOU KNOW I DON'T LIKE FRUIT. WHY WOULD YOU GET ME A DRINK WITH FRUIT? YOU DID IT ON PURPOSE!

I'm not doing basketball, are you crazy? Basketball is the worst sport in the world.

Shuh-up!

We left Morgan in the tree, and it was like really dark out.

Did you shave today? So did I. Venus.

We lost Grandpa at Disney World. It ruined the whole day.

Tom & Skippy

There's this cat that lives at the farm/park where I like to take Skippy for a walk. This has to be the friendliest cat I've ever met. His name is Tom, and he doesn't run away from anybody, not even my dog. If I was to let Skippy off his leash, he'd be jumping all over this cat. But Tom trusts me to hang onto the leash, and he lets Skippy get close and even smell him.
