Thanks American Science and Surpus. Years ago I bought some action figures – Einstein, Da Vinci and Shakespeare to be exact. They were awesome. Durable, realistic and fun, fun, fun. I think Da Vinci went to college with Dan. Shakespeare mysteriously disappeared a couple of years ago. Einstein, though, he was a trooper, he stuck with us! Lately, he’s been hanging out on our “spinny thing” in the middle of the table, aka The Apprentice. Sadly, Cally got to Einstein this evening. I am sure it started as a bout of friendly frolicking, but it’s ended badly. Just look at the picture. Cally feels terrible, but as a reminder, I have shut down her Facebook account and cut out all of her television time. I hope she learns from this. 😉
I love Halloween. I’m not all that uptight about the candy. It’s a week out of a year. We are not candy people, we don’t have huge dental issues, so my approach is “Go for it..” Problem? Ummmm . . . it would be me over-buying candy every year. It WAS buy one get on free. Mike and I seem to be on a mission to eat our weight in Butterfingers. Surely, there is a bottom to this bowl. Right??
Mike started building a new fire pit this afternoon. He says it will be ready for use tomorrow night. I’m seeing Butterfinger s’mores for all the neighbors in our very near future.
