(How do I post a video from youtube right here? Do I have to be a member? Fellow bloggers, please inform. Thanks.)
Cousin Larry McMasters sent this over to me this week. Killed me off. Too funny. (Consider yourself lucky, Billy Boy...you'd be licking your butt for a week to get the taste out of your mouth.)

So, this Elk season when Dad and I were hunting, we ate a little bit of junk food. Just a tiny bit. And, my tummy started acting up. After searching my purse for relief, I asked Dad if he had any medicine. He told me to look in the jockey box, and sure enough in there I found some Tempo tabs. I remembered those from childhood. Good medicine, as I remembered it. I looked at the package, and there were numbers printed on it. I chuckled when I saw the sequence of letters and numbers. Nov 87. November 1987. Aaah, I remember it well. Not really, just know I was in the 8th grade. That's about all I remember from that year. Anyway, I laughed and said something like "Hey Dad, these like expired in the Regan administration." "Well", he said, "then let your damn stomach hurt then." Then we both cracked up. So, I opened the foil package with a bit of trepidation. I remembered them being mint green, soft and chewy. Upon opening I found yellow, hard and petrified. I tried to chew it, and I couldn't even bite into it. Why did I try? Let's just say morbid curiosity. Let's not misunderstand. I am not dissing Dad's medicine kit in his truck, I am glad he has one. It is much worse here at my house, inside my medicine cabinet when I found medicine awhile back that expired in 1999. Emma got a chuckle out of that since that was the year she was BORN. :) Good times, good times.

So, I am suffering from pent up posting energy, so I am going to be hitting you with a few posts in a row that I have been wanting to share for awhile. This first foray into my ultra successful and so together life is what I found in my car this fall. It was full on fall sports season, so I was likely to find most anything. I didn't expect a half baked pizza crust, tho. That's one thing I found. You know....(validation please..can I get an amen??) you go with the plastic when the checker asks, you buy roundish things, and they roll out of the bag and hide their little sneaky selves under the third row seat. Add Indian summer heat, and voila! Half baked pizza crust. As for the other, we went to a garage sale and E found the Praying Mantis. She was homeless and without a loving home, and clearly in a family way. It was our civic duty to see that she had a healthy environment to give birth. So, she got to live in our peony bush. You're welcome, fellow humans and insects on the planet. Just another service we provide.

It's been awhile since I shared. Here goes.
-Coaching basketball. Emma's team. She's a star. Good stuff.
-Went to the woods on Saturday to sled and shoot new guns we got for Christmas. Got stuck. Spent 4 hours trying to get out. If it weren't for Brent and Theresa, we would live in the woods now. We'd be eating bark soup. Not good.
-Watched my little angel watch in wonder as his beloved Steelers kicked the crapola out of Phoenix. Pics with Roethlisberger jersey and face paint coming soon. (Homemade face paint. With gel food coloring. Wonder what his face looked like afterward?)
-Got sick sunday night. Been home from work until today.
-Dog is sick. She's 14. On her last legs. Was thinking she wouldn't make it through the week. Mom's leftover roast beef has maybe helped her turn a corner. Keep your fingers crossed.
-Swimming lessons start tomorrow.
-No rest for the wicked. And, no time to practice my wicked solo game. What?
