Sunday... September 12.



I just want to take a short short moment to say that my heart and mind travelled back in time yesterday and relived many of the emotions from that days dark day in history.  I don't feel any safer today... after all these wars and deaths... but I don't think that will ever really change. September 11 changed a great many things, but I am working hard to make the biggest personal change one of understanding better the courage within a human heart and our collective ability to rise above the terror that we inflict upon one another.  The future is ours... and I hope we find a way to embrace it... instead of shaking it down for bus fare, or oil.

In penny lane there is a barber showing photographs
Of every head he’s had the pleasure to know.



It was hair-cut day for the boys yesterday morning...
[ :: George getting cut :: ]
[ :: and Edward ... :: ]
... of course... hair cuts have their moments....

... but there's lolli's when you're done... :D


However... the really big news is that Geo - who earned this chance by completing a rather large "chore chart" - got his little self pierced!!


We had my dad and sister over for dinner last night... My mom is away on a painting adventure. :D
There were fantastic ribs off the bbq and I made another cheese cake...

... and it was amazingly good!!

We watched BB - which started late for some reason so the vcr quit with 5 minutes left... so we had to wait for the West Coast showing (thank you satellite dish) to catch the actual nominations... and we played a bunch of Gobblet! That game can be quite involved... !!  We managed to stay up till... well, really exceptionally late... and that was nice too. :)

The boys are at a birthday party for one of the neighbour's boys... it's clear across town and they had to leave at 9:15.... sigh... some people live with a different set of clock rules than we do on a sunday morning... sheesh. :D Fortunately, they were quite happy to take our boys with them so ... SCORE!!!!!

Big Brother 5 Update!!



The Cookie McGrill Show


Wherein... the producers and editors struggle to establish a full hour of content... The head boy nominates, his head girl demonstrates her mania and Michael - who never stops flying in the face of evolution - not only ruins dinner, but also gives his little self a brand new tattoo. But enough about that... lets let Diane tell the story...
