This weather report makes baby Jesus cry. (Of course, you have to read it like, today for that to make sense. If you are reading this and it’s July, you might be confused. Yahoo! Weather – Leominster tells me that it’s going from a high of 69 today to a high of 45 tomorrow. Oh, and there’s snow on the way. 1-3 inches. Ratzen fratzen weather. Tuesdays high is 38. That had BETTER be an early April Fool’s joke.
If you didn’t mind the kite string severing your fingers off one at a time. The wind is SO strong, and there is so much sand everywhere left over from the 40 snowstorms we had this winder. I keep thinking I should somehow save some for next winter, but I don’t imagine I have a good place to store a thousand pounds of sand.
We actually didn’t practice the biking today because it threatened to rain all day, even though it didn’t. And then the sandstorm pretty much meant he’d be riding with his eyes closed. It was bad enough when his eyes were open. (Oh, follow-up reply to Susan, I was running behind him holding the seat, but the seat is just low enough I had to bend slightly, and after 15 minutes my back was screaming. Not to mention I was keeping an almost 50 pound kid and a bike upright with one hand.
I see some people coming here from searches for “Ty the Tasmanian Tiger Ship Rex”. I didn’t remember writing about it, but I guess I did if you are finding me. I solved that level about a week ago. Two of us were killing ourselves trying to climb the rocks behind the quicksand, thrown off because of a bug in the game that makes it appear you can look THROUGH the rocks.
Okay, so if you really want an answer to something about that level, I feel qualified to answer. So far, we’ve only officially completed three levels (and I can’t even remember their names). And for a forth, all I need to do is find 4 more gems. (That’s the Snowy Peaks (?) one with the thin ice you have to swim under). Man, I’ve been up and down and back and forth that level a bunch of times…I just cannot figure out where those last 4 gems are. I’ve pretty much given up, actually. Life is too short.
Weather = great
swim lessons = great
visiting sister = great
Junior at least trying his new bike without the training wheels = a valiant effort.
I was just glad he gave it a shot. I figure it just needs to click with him. I put the training wheels back on because I’m not a shrew. He tried it, did okay, and will try it again in the future. I didn’t want to ruin the afternoon by telling him he could only ride his bike if I took them off.
Thanks to Honker who took time out of his busy day to not only cut out coupons for Kaboom, but to mail them to me. I will admit to having a moment where I wondered if I was getting a mail bomb (because I didn’t recognize the return address) but I figured that size envelope was probably more likely anthrax, and I could get medicine for that.
(Honk and I go way back to my old CompuServe days. Frighteningly way back, to 1987 or so, eh Honk?)
I was just looking at the logs for how people got here, and looking at the search terms used. (Don’t worry, it doesn’t tell me WHO searched, just that someone did, and that’s how they got to my site).
For the two people who entered the following searches, I am truly sorry that I don’t have the information you were looking for. I’m wondering, though, how the 2nd one got linked to my site.
– spells for noisy neighbors
– how llama is spelled in sign language
So, to the person looking for “Pirates of the Caribbean snow globes”: doesn’t it strike you as odd to have something Caribbean in a snow globe?
