It Was Need-to-Know, Sweetie!

Big Girl and Little Girl bought Indiana Jones Lego for their Wii, and Big Girl was telling me about the animals that they’ve ridden: a llama, an elephant, a horse, a camel… I interrupted to say, “Hmm…let me see…I’ve ridden a horse, an elephant, and a camel…” “WHAT!?” yelled Big Girl.  “How could you not…

Dunking and Sportsmanship

We’re big Orlando Magic fans around here, and just LOVED Dwight Howard’s slam dunk win last year during the All Star Break. And when asked what makes him most proud of his son – Slam Dunk Champ, top player in the NBA, Olympic Gold Medal Winner – Dwight’s dad said he was most proud of…

Quickies

Thanks to Jen for hosting, as always!   ~one~ I can’t believe it’s Friday again already.  And mid-February, too!  Yikes!  I suppose it’s finally time for me to download TurboTax and get that done.  For once it’s not a matter of whether or not I can pay my bills, so I’m a little more relaxed,…
