This is my last weekend of freedom before marching band competitions fill up my Saturdays and football games consume my Friday nights. I am looking forward to four Saturdays on a big yellow school bus.

Since the next month of weekends is shot, Grampy came to visit!!!!!! The family gathered at mom and dad's for lunch and Model T rides! Alex LOVED the Model T. He grabbed onto the wheel immediately and pulled himself to his feet. I also took Grampy to see my house. I'd sent him pictures, but he hadn't seen the newly painted exterior in person!

Later, while on the phone with Ashley, I went to water my flowers. As I approached my flower pot full of mums, a rustling near my feet caught my attention. With less than cat-like reflexes, I realized a snake was coming at me. I proceeded to scream into the phone and dance around while not gaining much ground. The snake kept coming straight at me! Finally I moved one direction and it went the other. Sorry Ashley! Your ear may never be the same.

After recovering from the snake encounter, Ashley and I went to dinner! I enjoyed our sushi and shopping very much! It was a very good last Saturday!


  1. Yet another GREAT story of front yard, Candid-Camera-worthy fun. Wish I'd have been there to see it!

  2. Too bad you didn't have a vacuum cleaner out with you.....did I ever tell you that story.

    Looks like you had a great Saturyday. Great pics!
