Last night was Taco Night. My wife made sure Lindsay had plenty of beans. Those gas masks from Israel came in quite handy. Sara was about to wolf down a soft taco. This morning, the dog decided to "hide out" in the comforter while I washed the linens. Remember - working from home also means "MAID". Just a few minutes ago, I snapped this pic of the tops of the thunderstorms just moving into Nashville - about 40 miles west of us. Spooky!
Last year, I had no idea which direction this blog was going to take. For some reason, I guess I did not put up the first day of school pictures. I won't make the same mistake this year since our oldest is starting 1st grade and our youngest is starting kindergarten.
It's funny to think that I started kindergarten 30 years ago this year!!
My favorite shot of the morning - I missed my photojournalist calling! Sara and Lindsay in Lindsay's kindergarten classroom (the same one Sara was in last year!)
Lindsay immediately found the owl puppetLindsay began the new Federal Government Play-Doh Assessment Test before we left (All Play-Doh funding is determined by the test) Sara heads into First Grade - less than 10 years from wanting her own car! Sara is ready for her fuddy-duddy parents to leave so she can get down to business!!
Another great from my youth is gone. Growing up with my main claim to fame being in the trombone section, I spent quite a few Saturday nights at the house :-). So, I watched a lot of "The Golden Girls" and I still do. It could get preachy at times, but when it was "in the groove", it was one of the funniest shows on TV (and still is).
All hail Sophia! Rose: Well, I'm off. Sophia: Totally.
Rose: Sophia, why are you in such a bad mood? Sophia: Excuse me Rose, but I haven't had sex in fifteen years and its starting to get on my nerves.
Dorothy: Hi, ma. Where are you going? Sophia: To the boardwalk. I like to watch the old guys rearrange themselves when they come out of the water.
[Sophia enters kitchen] Dorothy: You couldn't sleep either, huh? Sophia: No, I'm sleeping so good I thought I'd come try it in the sink.
Sophia: I can't believe it. Esther Weinstock is dead. Dorothy: Oh I'm so sorry Ma, How'd it happen? Sophia: [sarcastically] She was fight…
I finally made it to Wendy's today. Since I am such a huge fan of the Frosty Float, I had HIGH expectations of the Frosty Shake.
Well, I was let down big time. The flavoring was so overwhelming. I kept thinking - NyQuil Shake - NyQuil Shake.
I couldn't even drink it all. Yeech.
The Frosty Float, however, is a different ballgame. It is my absolute favorite float. I tried the Arby's knockoff - not even close! It reminds me of a soda fountain float (I used to drive to a real soda fountain in Franklin, Kentucky just for real lemonade and floats. Of course, gas was 89 cents a gallon then!).
