My Precious Baby

Scout has a taste for bike pedals...the guy at the bike store said he'd only heard of one other dog that ate pedals...a Husky....

seems like a reasonable dog chew to me...perfect height for Scout and her very favorite texture....I couldn't really be mad that she devoured when I left all that within her reach...

anyway....I located replacements and have seriously intended to install them for the last two nights....oops....maybe tomorrow?

soon, we will have wheels again (and dorky helmets, but that's a safety thing - heads crack like melons)

we've also created a new storage spot for the bikes....out of temptation range for Scout...pedals don't grow on trees, ya know?

According to

(click to enlarge)

my MIL, there are not only random jumpers from the roof of her building on a pretty regular basis, but active snipers apparently reside in the student housing below her windows....

none of this has been substantiated by any outside'd think that sort of thing would make the news

I forgot...she says she's not worried about the snipers (even though, she found a bullet hole in her window that we never could find) because her bed and recliner are both below the bottom sill of her windows...

she's a thinker

and lives on the 10th floor

I love Jesus

but I have mobility issues (apologies to the fabulous Gladys Hardy).....

we spent some time with my MIL today...
(early Mother's Day, late J's birthday combo celebration)......

there were gnomes (or Disney dwarves that we're calling gnomes).....

there was a trip to the thrift store that netted me a bunch of shorts that J hates AND a Slytherin t-shirt (for a quarter!!)....

now there's some of this and the evening continues to look up (not actually Bud Light, but beer)......

just what IS on my camera

after a long weekend visit with friends?....anyone want to venture a guess or offer a bribe?

the possibilities are mind boggling.....for example....there were dogs, cats, foxes, black squirrels, beers, bubbles, gardens, monuments and much laughter...

unfortunately there were other cameras present and potentially incriminating unflattering shots of me taken so I'm going to have to exercise a great deal of restraint when deciding what to post....
