First you drive the railroad nail you found in the yard in to the ground. Or is that "into the ground"?
Action shot of the actual "driving", the only driving he'll do for a long, long time, lol.
Removal of said nail to do over, and over, and over. . .

Minus SuperGirl's expression, I'd say it will all work out just fine. Now, if I could just photoshop your couch in here, Rachel, it would all be peachy. Wait. I don't have Photoshop. Nevermind.
P.S. The camera was in the front floorboard of the car. Oops. :)
The Fletchinator is here, but my camera is not. And no, he did not eat it. :) As soon as I find it I will post pics of him with the kiddos.

We get to get him on Monday. His folks are out of town right now, so we have to wait. We've decided on Fletch because SuperDad is a fanatical recurve bow hunter, but everytime I think "Fletch" I think of the Chevy Chase movies. Does that make me a bad person, lol.
Naturally, I was going to post this yesterday and it made sense. Well, last night it rained a bunch, so it's not nearly as funny as it could have been. :)
Anywho, you know it hasn't rained in a while when your neighbor only has to mow their drain field. Yeah, that was me yesterday, mowing the 3 or 4 strips of nice green grass in the back yard.
P.S. For you city folks who don't have these, a drain field is defined as "an open area, or piping network in which the surrounding soil absorbs the liquids from a septic tank". Don't worry, it's covered with rocks and dirt, and doesn't smell a bit. It's just a greener area of the yard.

Well. I'm disappointed. But at least I had it explained to me on the way out of the fair this evening.
Both of my quilts, the pink one shown here in the top center........
And this blue and green one in the top center, both earned third place ribbons. Now I'm happy/please/tickled that I even received a ribbon, yada, yada, yada. But to see the red, white and blue diddy in the bottom of both pics win 2nd? Please.
Anywho, I found out why I received third on our way out of the fair. SuperFamily and I were looking at a little kiddo exhibit near the exit, when the woman was running it recognized me. She happened to register me on Sunday when I entered the fair. She mentioned that the lady judging the quilts liked my quilts well enough, but the quilting wasn't done by me. She said it looked like it was done on a longarm machine by a professional. It was. But still. I didn't realize I had to be the one that quilted the flingin' flangin' thing. Lordy. Looks like I won't be entering much of anything in the way of quilts any time soon.
On the brighter side, SuperGirl and I won first place with our aprons. Yay!
Did I mention I didn't see any other aprons?

I just measured our kiddos and they've both grown a bunch. SuperBoy has grown an inch and a quarter and SuperGirl has grown an inch in the past 4 months. No wonder they look taller, lol.
We're marking a section of our wall to chart their growth, and we'll likely take it with us when we move (some day). Do you chart your children's growth a certain way? Share it with me!
Here is an apron I made for a fellow market-mate. I still need to add the maize-colored ric rac on, but this is it before I forget to take a pic.
Does this apron make my butt look big? I've been wanting to ask that SO badly. How does one keep their butt from going/being flat? Is there a certain exercise I can do to plump mine back up? Mine certainly acts like I've hit a nail in the road and all the air has left for higher ground. Don't get me wrong, I don't want a J-Lo-ish bum, just curves again.
Sorry for the tangent. Staying on course is not one of my strong suits.
I can clearly relate to Susan's post about the Olympics and our children's perceptions. SuperGirl and I were just watching some of the swimming we had tivoed (is that even a word?) and she saw a Chinese woman speaking in English and asked me if she was Chinese. I replied, "Yes, she is", and received the response of, "Well, how does she speak like that?" I then had to explain that folks in other countries can learn different languages just as we can, and then she asked me if all people in China speak English. Oy! I feel like I'm stuck in a whirlpool, being sucked downward in the spiral toward an incoherent land of gibberish. If you hear someone yelling "SAVE ME" soon, it may just be me. :)

In the Laugh Olympics, maybe, lol.
They're actually practicing for a bowshoot with SuperDad on the 23rd. I'll try to get pics then, too.
Please excuse SuperBoy in his Batman unders. Who needs shorts when you have those?
