My New Pet


Just kidding.  Kevin found him in the backyard.  He finds them from time to time and catches them for me.  I hold them for a little while, then let them go in the front yard.  I love the feel of their skin.  He had his tongue out quite a bit, but I couldn't manage to get a picture.  He had quite a grip on my fingers.  It's hard to believe they are that strong.

Catching Up

Three weekends ago I took some time off work to do some visiting.  I drove to East Texas to first visit Tish.  We knitted in public and received quite a bit of feedback from the customers in Starbucks.  Here is Tish knitting her first hat!

We ate great food, and had a wonderful time.  Next I drove the almost 2 1/2 hours (still in E. Texas) to visit my parents.  On the way through Mount Pleasant, I had to take a picture of the gigantic Bo Pilgrim bust.

We had a family get-together on Saturday at my grandparent's house.  It is uncanny how much my grandfather and dad now look alike.

I had a restful time and accomplished quite a bit of knitting (super secret project to be revealed later).  We also watched Dead Silence.  Pretty good for a horror flick about dolls.  

Veronica and I went that following week to a conference/meeting at the Dallas Arboretum.  These are the pictures we sent to our bosses to thank them for letting us go to the conference.

They got a kick out of it!  This was actually taken during a break that we had.  It was such a beautiful day!
