random randomness

We returned from Dauphin Island after midnight on Wednesday. The Mighty Hunter had a business meeting in Baton Rouge Wednesday afternoon, which made for the perfect excuse to visit one of the finest retail stores in the world. Complete with stuffed dead animals. Everything from cute arctic foxes to full-bodied elephants, lions, a polar bear and 2 zebras.

I returned from our days on "the island" with two things I would gladly do without...
1. strange sunburn on my back, from not having help applying sunblock
2. upper respiratory infection

Stinkerbell and Lucky had a great time. Tuesday, our last day there, The Mighty Hunter took Stinkerbell out on the Sea-Doo and was surrounded by dolphins. She is convinced that she could hear them "eek eek eeeeek!"

Stinkerbell enrolled in the local library's summer reading program (not THIS library!) We checked out 10 books for her to read. As of right now, she has finished 6.5 of them. In addition to these she's reading independently, she and I are reading The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. I remember reading most of the series as a 4th grader and want to share the books with her now, since the movies have her interested.

if anyone has seen Prince Caspian, please let me know what you thought of it. We haven't made it to the movies yet for it and would be interested in a review or two.

I receive very little spam. (Well, until now. Now that I've jinxed myself, I'll start receiving 2000/day!) Anyway, I have received 2! spams from Microsoft. The interesting thing is that Microsoft is not trying to hawk its newest (crappy) version of Windows to this loyal XP user. NO! Microsoft is selling Viagra! I always suspected that Bill Gates made his money in something besides software.

get it? SOFTware!

I kill me.
you can't make this stuff up!

I must go now. Pancakes must be wiped off chins. Clothes must be washed. Suitcases must be stored. Library books must be exchanged for more. And softball resumes tonight.

Have you ever seen this website for movie reviews:

It is put out by Focus on the Family and I have found it to be extrememly resourceful!!

My kids are still too little to spend the big bucks for the movie theatre. So we either go to the dollar movie after or rent it after everyone has seen the movie!!!
Good Luck!
