...but my leg just cramped while I was posting that. I'm holding Griff responsible.

Insurance company just sent us another check for the loss of the Jet Ski, almost the same amount as the first check. Not what we wanted for it when we were selling it, but damm! A hell of a lot better than what we expected. Go Boat US!

Excellent! That must ease the sting of it a little.

God you don't know. We asked 4k for it at sale and were willing to accept 3.5k. We lost it in what was clearly not covered by the insurance but the insurance company stepped up to the plate and covered us for half of that. So we went from a total loss to 1/2 of what we were asking. Go Boat US!

The Baseball Head is trying to eat my niece!

Unexcused absence, little heathens. My brother does this with the girls every September. The girls love baseball, especially the oldest one...a real competitor in the game herself.

They're happy kids. Happy family. I hold my brother and sis-in-law and their kids up as the goal every family should strive for. I'm not bragging; I had nothing to do with it...they're just amazing people.

Thanks lamp.

Cincinnati Trivia:

After Pete Rose was banned for life from baseball, what was Pete Rose Way renamed?




The Cooperstown Bypass

Thanks folks! I'll be here all week. Try the Skyline chili.

A small happiness, but I di feel glad I did it.
Was talking over the weekend about blacberry & apple crumble
Mum has prepared and frozen a number of cooking apples she was given this year. I went out for 30 minutes and brought back a box of blackberries. The walk, the time-out and the general nature of... well, nature's bounty, has made me feel great.

And I think it cheered her up a bit.
I offered to soak them for her, but she was happy to do it. Off they go to the freezer to await happy dessert times.

I do have some itchy scratches though.

apparently hebe's grades are awesome. Coming from hippie school, we've never had to deal with grades before. i still find the online grade check thing kinda voyeuristic, though, and tonight was surprised to learn that her grades were really good. I only just made the adjustment to what % = A from Brit to yank, so i guess I was overcompensating.

When I was at school, 70% was an A. here, that's a fail......
