The kiddos learned how to play croquet while vacationing at Grandpa and Grandma's house in Loveland CO.

Grandpa Phillips has a tandem bicycle.
Some of the kiddos really enjoy riding it with him.
Others not so much... this ride with Dani didn't last long.

Did you know you can't give away kitties on Craig's List for free? You can re-home them for a fee. What ever that means. So I put them on Craig's List -- for $.50. LOL Some fee.
I'm GIVING THESE AWAY FOR FREE HERE!!
First come first serve... don't every body rush at me at once! Hurry, hurry, hurry! You'll miss your chance if you wait any longer!
Any one want one? They are CUTE!!
Actually -- I think you need both... they need a brother to play with at your house.
Here is the photo -- they are the 2 light colored ones. They need a home.
Their MOM is a great mouser! That trait may be genetic... but don't hold me to it. I see them pouncing on things already -- I think they will be mousers... but who knows?
They are MALES... but the tamest outdoor males I've ever seen. My 5 kiddos hold them, and play with them, and put them in slings, and carry them around in their bags, and they've even been held upside down by guests. (I don't let my kids hold animals upside down). :giggle:
Oh -- another thought... if you took both of these... I just about can guarantee you wouldn't have more baby kitties for a long, long time. ;-)
So -- if you want them give my dear husband a call... he really, really wants to talk to you.

My dear husband sent me a link to a news story yesterday. Something he thought perhaps I could do from home. Supliment the income.
I followed the link... click here... you can follow it too.
So this morning -- I'm reading a news story -- I started a yahoo... then went to WHO TV and read about a mom with ALS, then noticed a link... looked sort of familiar, but a little bit different.
Clicked on it...(you can too) hmm... HEY!! Didn't take ME long to notice... something FISHY!
SAME story - SAME photo -- SAME name -- different town. Amazing... this lady has a twin, doing the same job, in MY TOWN!
Who do they think we are??? She twins don't have the SAME name. :duh:

Proof that Tori CAN smile for pictures. °Ü° She had been saving her $$ for an iPod touch. Our birthday $$ to her was going to put her over the top. So -- instead of making her wait... I went ahead and bought one and surprised her with it for her birthday. Woo Hoo!!! She was excited. How could I tell? Well just look at that smile!
She is a very subdued girl. It took me a while to figure that out. But that million dollar smile... if you get to glimpse that, then you know exactly how she is feeling!
She had fun with that using Grandpa's wireless internet while we were on vacation. She's cheap (like her mother) and downloaded a bunch of free stuff. LOL Funny.
Anyone else have an iPod touch? Do you ever use it for anything useful? Got any hints?

These are a few pics I snapped on our way to Loveland CO this summer.
It seemed to me that from day to day the mountains changed. One could live there a lifetime and not be weary of seeing the mountians and the sky that frame them.
These photos were all taken on the drive westward in a span of 30 minutes. God's creation is BEAUTIFUL!
It would be even better if we hadn't strung those wires on poles all along the way.
Just LOOK at those skies... Amazing!
I'm ready to go back.
Why must everything be underlined? I don't even have that option while I'm blogging... what am I doing wrong?

Oh alright already -- I wasn't really running. It just sounds so much better to say running instead of shuffling. Be kind to the old lady.
I was running at the track today and a man stopped me and said, "You don't know me from Adam, but did you know there was an attempted child abduction in the park this week here in town."
Ahhhh!!! My kids were scattered all around me... 2 in the bleachers... one by the gate... 1 running behind... well in front of me really.
Yeah right... what are you? Some kind of weirdo? Grow up -- this is Knoxville... teeny weeny Knoxville. I come here all the time -- who would want attempt to abduct my child anyway? Well -- now that you think about it -- they are kind of cute from far away. Sometimes they stink up close...
So I hollar at my kiddos and say, "Keep up with me if you can." GROAN!! Oh... stop yer moanin'. I'm trying to save your hide from an abduction you loons. OK, OK... you can go sit in the middle of the football field while I run around you. Mansel said, "How is that better... they are still very far away?"
Who knows? But I could probably identify the abductors if they ran all the way across the football field while attempting to abduct my child from me.... then I could chase them down as they were trying to flee with said child... since I would be running childless -- I could probably catch them. Maybe.
The kind man had in the mean time lapped me. (Sigh) That happens often while I'm running at the track. So you see... I'm not really running am I? I really am shuffling -- but, oh never mind. Anyway... the kind man said, "Well -- I'm done for the day. I'm Steve Funk, b.t.w. Blah, blah, blah... we chatted some more, but I don't remember it word for word." He did mention that he was a police man from Indianola. I thought as he left... either he is really nice, or really weird. I think I'll google him. Guess what? He really is Deputy Steve Funk from Indianola. Go figure. AND... there really was an attempted child abduction in Knoxville this week -- per this news article on the KNIA/KRLS web-site.
