    The neighbor lady got upset about that? The lesson is, as usual, women are weird.

    We have the graduation party this weekend. Finally. About a 50% chance of rain. That doesn't really tell us anything about the weather. We have a tent coming just in case.

    That was an amazing but busy few days. I hope I never get tired of/don't appreciate the fact that I get to do those kind of things. For those that are interested it will be in Ankeny this weekend, Mason City next weekend and St. Paul July 5th-7th.

    Yeah, that she wasn't.

    I will say later in that presentation, I looked over right as she did, we looked eye to eye for a little longer than normal with that, I think I know you look, and then both looked away. Made sure to avoid that area for a bit afterwards, by the time I got ready to leave she was gone. One of those funny things to laugh about but not funny if you actually have to deal with it face to face. I hope she is happy and doing well, just no desire to fully know.

    I had a couple teenage jokes that I contemplated posting but have restrained myself.

    I had never been to the state fair in my life until a few years ago. The vixen finally dragged me down with a couple of the girls and grandkids. I will admit I had a good time and will go back again. I really enjoyed seeing all the animals.

    Lots of good food (although none of it very healthy) and of course dippin' dots.

    Thanks, GR8. This site will be very helpful for my trip to Appleton tomorrow. It looks like apart from a little road work on I-94 with all lanes open during peak hours there isn't much to stand in our way.

    That was pretty much Mrs. Velo's reaction last night when she found dog crap that someone left next to our dwarf* Korean lilac bush.

    EDIT: Is *this now considered insensitive. Should it now be called a "little lilac"?

    You should not place labels. Dwarf or short is bad. Korean is insensitive, it lives in America. So you just have a lilac. Because it may wish to be a tree and not a bush, it may also think of itself as a shrub...,,,...so just the lilac that resides in the yard of the house I own.

    Maybe she should get some grenades. Of course if they haven't put a PICC line in that could be problematic.

    Through work I have encountered only the second person I know with the first name Romie (Romy in this case). Made me think of Johnny and his wife - who had to be a saint.

    You absolutely avoid TX/OU days (weekend) unless you're going to the game. It's utter chaos from sun up to sun down. All of Dallas pretty much is that day.

    I live within walking distance but usually talk the light rail since it's just easier to navigate from the light rail station. So I usually get a season pass because of all the cooking competitions I enter.

    Usually I'll spend a Saturday doing the actual fair stuff with a couple friends. Otherwise I am dropping off my cooking stuff at ~8am and then going home and then coming back for the announcement of the winners at 2-4pm.

    Love the state fair car shows. People truly have some awesome cars

    Got to talk to the Super K teacher for a couple minutes at drop off today.
    I said something mutually complementary about their approach and Z, and the teacher added "Oh, yes, she can do everything. She reads already!"
    Then she told me the story of Z picking up her milk carton at lunch and reading it to her, pretty much out of the blue, because that's how the kid rolls.

    There's an even more amazing kid in there, once she believes it.

    That's probably where this was going. ;)

    Not nearly as classy as the cork cars you showed us, but this one was on the street. They opted for maximum flotation as the corks are not split but instead whole. Not a BMW, either.

    For the record, I was completely stationary waiting on the exit ramp when I snapped this. The car was not so I took what I could get.

    So if my tree that just had half of its roots destroyed dies, I can send the bill to the road construction contractors right?

    You can send a bill anywhere you want. Getting payment? Well, that's a different story...

    Had to pedal furiously to beat the rain home. As it was the temp dropped 9 degrees and it was feeling kinda cold with that 20 mph. Might have to order some long sleeve jerseys for this sunless ****** weather summer.

    And the forecast. **** it. Just **** it.
