First Time in the Jolly Jumper

Oliver loved his Jolly Jumper so much he hurled on it. I would recommend these things to anyone with a child, the comedic value alone is worth it.  Thanks to Grandpa Al for this one!

....and that is the key to world peace.

I'm smart and cute!

Oliver meets his other Great Grandma

Oliver finally got to meet the other side of his family...well, a bit of it anyway.  The first picture is Great Grandma Vicky.  The second is my Mom Debbie.  The third one is my cousin Lyndsey, her son Sebastian, and my Auntie Lorrie (who is only visible by her reflection in the mirror).  The fourth one is my Auntie Wendy.  As a child, I thought that my Grandma was one of the most beautiful women I knew.  The pictures that were taken of her with Oliver made me remember why I did, and still do think that.

Neighborhood Insanity

Yesterday evening, I was sitting outside reading a Dirty Job, by Christopher Moore and smoking a casual cigarette, and suddenly, there are two police cars pulling up.   The cops exit their vehicles, and start circling one of the houses across the street.  While I am watching the police officers walk around the back of the house, I see a young man dressed in a black hoodie, jeans and no shoes getting out of the second floor window, and stand on the roof.  Then he jumped down, and sauntered into the back of the house, while the officers were presumably in the house looking for him.  While I was waiting for the police to notice that he was in the back, they leave the house and start walking back to their vehicles.  So, being the good citizen that I am, and having a healthy concern with the welfare of our neighborhood, but being unsure of what to do, I wake the napping Reed and ask him if I should go and tell them.  He says "Fuck yes."  So I walked over to the cops, flag one over, and tell them about the guy who exited the house from the uncomfortably small and high window. Drama ensues... I go back into our house, and here the police sceaming "Get on the ground! Hands behind your back!"  It was awesome.  Side note being that we are currently half way into the second season of The Wire, so I am slightly paranoid that the people who live there are going to get back at me in some nasty way.  They probably won't.  Still a little paranoid.  I still feel a little bad ass. This being a tribute to how boring my life is lately.

Another Baby!

Found this little baby Blue Jay in the backyard today. He couldn't fly yet despite trying and trying but mama and papa were around so after snapping a few photos we let him be. Jen got to see them dive bomb the neighbors cat a couple times too. I can't find the little guy anymore so I'm hoping and guessing his parents took care of him.
