I have thanked her verbally, of course. I think a card is appropriate in situations where you are unable to do that. Abigail doesn't really do cards though. Or thank you letters since she was about 12. She sends texts and emails, which aren't really appropriate in this case.

You know what? I'm talking myself out of it. Abs is likely to ask me to thank Ms Mc for her and I will pass that on. She's 17 after all, it might seem a little olde-worldy of her to put something in writing!

ETA - Dana, major congrats on the latest stage in Carrot's life.
It must be lovely to leave him sleepy and comfortable with room to roam.

Yes, Dana, congrats on Carrot reaching the point where he doesn't need to be crated at night! It's so much better for one's peace of mind to know that your dog can move around and get comfortable as needed. He's such a cutie - keep posting pics!

I'm happy because I sent my 12 year old Marmot tent back to the manufacturer for a possible warranty issue on the rain fly delaminating and they sent me a reply that they would give me a $399 credit towards a new tent! I don't backpack very much any more and mostly car camp with my grandkids so I am going to get a big 6 person tent. Here is what I am getting, the Limestone 6P. It goes for $449 so I won't have to pay much.

Nice tent!

Verry nice tent !!!

Well, it is big and heavy but for car camping it works. I usually share with my wife and our dog and if we are weekend camping or longer it's nice not to be cramped. I also have a nice Sierra Designs 2 person if I decide to hit a trail.

I also store all my tents and sleeping bags in the house in cotton bags that allow breathability so it should last at least another 10-15 years!

cool tent!

talked to my boss today (not the engineering company i work for but rather the guy who signs my checks since i'm contract through him) anyway, i've been training a friend on autocad here at the house about once a week for the last several months. he's got an interview with my boss next week. i'm proud!

It's Mav's birthday today and as per usual, I made his cake.

Here it is in all it's glory (except the candles aren't on yet)

Wow! What is the charmeleon made of? And is the rainbow stuff crushed breakfast cereal? Very nice.

Aliantha 07-11-2012 08:06 PM

charmeleon is just rolled out plastic icing (that stuff wedding cakes are usually iced with) which I then cut the shape out of and then coloured in with a brush and food colouring. After I iced the cake with some butter frosting, I then simply plopped my artwork onto the cake. The rainbow stuff is just coloured sprinkles. I figured these types of creatures always seem to be standing on weird stuff, so I figured rainbow grass would be ok.

The idea is to light the candles and it looks like the character is breathing fire. :)
