I love it how if you look at the picture closely, you can see the reflection of the Batmobile. Recently, in preparing for a speech about a hero, I ordered Batman books from the library. I ended up picking a real life hero for my speech, but still got the books from the library. All together, I have over 1000 pages of the early comics waiting to be read. I have been learning all about the superhero that I thought I knew about. I was kinda surprised to find out that he doesn't fly. I used to think all superheroes flew. I'd have to say he's my favorite though, because of how realistic they tried to make him. I'm really enjoying it. So much so that I knew that if I let myself read all day, I would read all day and never get anything else done. So I've made a rule that's challenging to keep, but a good rule, that I have to complete all of my day's schoolwork before I can even open up the book of Batman. In three days, I've been plowing along in my schoolwork, and I've read the first 100 pages! :)

Well, I hope you've enjoyed the ramblings of what I've been up to. I might try to get some more pictures up here soon. We'll see...

Thought Y'all Might Enjoy

Normally when I listen to my music on the computer, I keep the volume between 1/4 to 1/3 of max volume. Fast forward...imagine the end of the bridge of Healing Begins...just after the it's ramping up before quieting down...yeah, that part...imagine that playing 3-4x louder than loud. That's what happened to me for about 2 seconds until I could figure out what the noise was and how to stop it. Boy, did it scare me silly. I have never experienced an emotion like that before. It scared me so bad I started shaking from head to toe and crying. It really was that loud and unexpected. So, how did it happen? I was watching a video my mom had sent me and I couldn't hear it, so I turned it up all the way. Then I went and forgot that I had turned the volume up and played the song I had paused to see the movie. I'm just brilliant.

Lesson of the day: if you turn the volume up, remember to turn it down before resuming normal activities.

Okay, so I took these forever ago and just hadn't gotten around to posting them. So here they finally are.

These are of a raccoon that would come up onto our back porch during the day to eat. One day I got out the camera and tripod and started shooting. You're getting the condensed version; I took about 75 pictures. Enjoy!

Comic Relief

I was just searching through the tons and tons of old (and not so old) pictures we have and found this one. So I thought I'd share. Enjoy!

(note: it is not easy to climb a tree in a dress)

I finally got the pictures from our trip last Tuesday (or was it Wednesday???) on here. Enjoy!

A couple from our church invited us up to have lunch with them at Corporate. The amount of food they have up there for lunch is amazing. They sure feed their people well.

This is a picture of the bottled beverages refrigerator after lunch was almost over:

Mom, our hostess, and Jo looking at the cars after lunch:

Frisbee Man found a car he liked...

This one was my favorite normal car:

But this one was my very favorite:

Hope you've enjoyed!
