Has it really been 25 years?

Today is our 25th wedding anniversary. We were married at Rockland community church up on Gennesse mountain. It has this killer view of the front range of the continental divide. Of course it has to go and snow 8 inches that day, mostly during the ceremony! So those windows behind us, which are blindingly white, have a nice view - trust me...

Happy Easter from 1967

My fricken god, a hat! That's laying it all out there people, hope you appreciate this!

We are more than just a little pissed!

I gotta tell ya, when I opened up the latest issue of People magazine and saw the story about Jlo and Mark with the new twins, well, I about fell over! Kathy and I just feel, so, so... violated ! First up how than they possibly decorate their baby room the same way we did? I mean from the Chandelier right down to the crib, it's all just like ours. Dulce and Gabbana didn't give us custom-made fur wraps, but knowing our love of the outdoors, REI gifted us with a down coat, carabiners and an ice axe all in a small size. Damn if this doesn't look exactly like out sitting area where we would feed Skyler when he was newborn! I think they stole our floorplans and I will have a word with our designer about this! Finally, look at them out jogging just like we do with Skyler. My God, Mark even wears the same jogging attire that I do, this just is too much to bear. Now if you will all excuse me, I have to go throw up...

Damn! I found this too late for St Paddys!!

And now, today's fashion report

Amusing predictions by American fashion designers from the 1930s of what the well-dressed man and woman would be wearing in the year 2000. I long for a Utility Belt, but don't really have any desire for pockets to hold candy for cuties...

T-shirt Tag

Johnny Yen tagged me with a meme. Here it is: 1. Link back to the original post . 2. Describe two t-shirts that you own. 3. If you design your own vanity t-shirt what would it say? 4. Where would you wear your vanity t-shirt? 5. Tag three of your best blogging buds. Oh come on now, only 2 t-shirts!? We are talking about the main staple of my wardrobe here, so I have to talk about a lot more than that! Here are some of my favorite shirts: National Sports Center for the Disabled, where Skyler gets to go ski is such an awesome organization. I wrote about them here . One of my favorite prints, called Reflections, Lee Teter's brilliant painting of a man grieving by the Vietnam Memorial, and the spirits of deceased soldiers reaching out in consolation. My sister got me this Dilbert shirt knowing how much I love that comic. Truer words have never been spoken... This baby I earned! The MS150 that year climbed from Louisville up to Estes Park over the peak to peak highway and back down

Seems as good of an explanation as any

This reminds me of Mel Brooks as Moses bring down 3 tablets from the mountain. He tells all "I bring you these 15 commandments (drops a tablet and it breaks) I bring you these 10 commandments!"

The darkness falls

Our oldest guy, Hootie, has suddenly gone blind. We went to the Vet about 3 weeks ago because he didn't seem himself, he wasn't running around much anymore. We thought that he was having arthritis problems or back problems since he had an old injury from when he was young. The Vet said that yes, he seemed like he was hurting, but what was really going on was he was starting to loose his vision. We went back to the Vet a couple of days ago and now he is almost completely blind. We don't know what happened, it could be Cushings disease, or a tumor, any number of things. Bottom line is that we can't treat it, so why spend a huge amount of money and put Hootie through that to get a diagnosis? He is doing OK with it, he knows his way around the house pretty well, and we still take him on walks and guide him around the dangerous areas. It is just so sad to see though, and his buddie Yordi doesn't understand that he can't come running full speed at him and tackle

Sheriff: Woman Sat on Toilet for 2 Years By ROXANA HEGEMAN, AP WICHITA, Kan. — Authorities are considering charges in the bizarre case of a woman who sat on her boyfriend's toilet for two years — so long that her body was stuck to the seat by the time the boyfriend finally called police. Ness County Sheriff Bryan Whipple said it appeared the 35-year-old Ness City woman's skin had grown around the seat. She initially refused emergency medical services but was finally convinced by responders and her boyfriend that she needed to be checked out at a hospital. "We pried the toilet seat off with a pry bar and the seat went with her to the hospital," Whipple said. "The hospital removed it." Whipple said investigators planned to present their report Wednesday to the county attorney, who will determine whether any charges should be filed against the woman's 36-year-old boyfriend. "She was not glued. She was not tied. She was just physically

Skyler is 17 today

Happy Birthday to my incredible son Skyler! You have come so far in your 17 years, and I couldn't be more proud of you. From an early, so very tough start to a Junior in High School, where did the years go? This picture hung on the wall going into the Neonatal Intensive Care Nursery at Rose Hospital for years until they redecorated and gave it to us. 1 pound 15 ounces. Now he never met a camera he didn't love!

We think we have come so far

I was recently forwarded an article from The Orange County Register about a 17 year old boy who was removed from his home after a teacher complained and social workers intervened who had never even met the boy , and placed him into a state run institution. My God, I thought we had gone past these days as a society, but I am hearing more stories like this about the lack of inclusive education, and a greater tendency to revert to the old methods of institutionalizing peple with special needs. I am just a bit sick after reading this, I will let you decide for yourself. Go here for the complete story .

Aviation and Military Wisdom

Staying with the flight theme (whaaa?) I found this buried in the old joke file. You've never been lost until you've been lost at Mach 3. -Paul F.Crickmore - test pilot "Cluster bombing from B-52s are very, very accurate. The bombs are guaranteed to always hit the ground." - USAF Ammo Troop "It is generally inadvisable to eject directly over the area you just bombed." - U.S. Air Force Manual "Though I Fly Through the Valley of Death .. I Shall Fear No Evil. For I am at 80,000 Feet and Climbing." - At the entrance to the old SR-71 operating base Kadena, Japan "The only time you have too much fuel is when you're on fire." "If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter -- and therefore, unsafe." "When one engine fails on a twin-engine airplane you always have enough power left to get you to the scene of the crash." "Without ammunition, the USAF would be just another expensiv

Scientists agree that the people of Mars differ from us in many ways

That part of the caption from a picture in the New York Tribune, Feb 8, 1920. I had no idea that anybody entertained the thought that there really might be life on Mars! Caption: "Scientists agree that the people of Mars differ from us in many ways. The Martians are believed to have very large noses and ears and immense lung development, because of the rarefied atmosphere. Their legs are poorly developed, because matter on Mars weighs less than here and sturdy legs are not needed to bear their weight. Birds and butterflies are very large and beautiful." Apparently they work a lot on developing new types of floor lamps also:
