I am a tad late because I was out of town, but after a mad scramble through the photo albums, here we are!!! At 1 I went as a streaker! At 2... Hey look at me! I'm a cowboy! How original... And in 1966, at 9, the worlds most frightening Frankenstein. There you have it, vote early and vote often!

Out of town and off-line for awhile

Kathy's mom passed away and we had to pick up and fly to Seattle (Bellevue) to meet up with the rest of the family, make arrangements, provide support, and all the stuff that comes with loosing a family member. I am worried about Kathy's dad, he is just crushed. See you all next week.

Let the Leader lead

Garrison Keillor had a great column on October 16th that I just had an opportunity to read. I found out about it through a support group I belong to, as it has their son Patrick in it. Here in Colorado, as we all go to the polls we are facing the most amendments that our ballot has ever had. Included in these is #51, where we would receive additional funding to help reduce the wait-list time for people who have disabilities to be able to receive services. As it stands right now, Skyler would start receiving some support around 40-50 years old. Yes, it is that long of a wait. I hope and pray that people can find it in their hearts to pass this, but with the economic woes of late, I have my doubts. Here is Garrison's column: Keillor: Let the leader lead By Garrison Keillor Thursday, October 16, 2008 The Scripture reading in church Sunday gave me a jolt - Exodus 32, which refers to the Chosen People wearing earrings, men as well as women, and I twit

One has to wonder with one word.

The blogger with the best top of the head out there , the delightful Beth, tagged me with an interesting meme. I have to answer one word questions. I wonder why they aren't one word statements? Oh well, that's a debate for another time, away we go! #1 - Clothes. Very, very, casual. Bordering on looking like a flood victim most of the time. It doesn't help that I work out of the house now, and can't be bothered to even put on clothes most of the time... #2 - Furniture I am the proud owner of one of the finest collections of American Furniture Warehouse "scratch and dent sale" sets to be seen! I do a private tour on the 5th Tuesday of every month. #3 - Sweet Why, yes I am, thank you! What's that Beth? Oh, I see. What do I like that is sweet... My bad. I enjoy chocolate, preferably dark chocolate. #4 - City Hong Kong. I was there twice in the Navy and it is electric. It is busy, fun, cultural, and the nighttime view from the top of Victoria Peak is a

It's been a long week here around the Sky-Dad Fortress of Solitude, and I thought I would clean out some old drawers that were building up with blog fodder. First off, a 3 for 1 special on quick jokes! Sex The mother of a 17-year-old girl was concerned that her daughter was having sex. Worried the girl might become pregnant and adversely impact the family's status, she consulted the family doctor. The doctor told her that teenagers today were very willful and any attempt to stop the girl would probably result in rebellion. He then told her to arrange for her daughter to be put on birth control and until then, talk to her and give her a box of condoms. Later that evening, as her daughter was preparing for a date, the woman told her about the situation and handed her a box of condoms The girl burst out laughing and reached over to hug her mother saying: 'Oh Mom! You don't have to worry about that! I'm dating Susan!' Church A man went to church one day and afterwa

Not to steal his ideas, but my friend Russ sent this lovely story in that there E-lektronik mail stuff today: Sheriff: Family Cremates Mom On BBQ, Keeps Benefits Daughter Fashioned Necklace From Mom's Skull, Detectives Say CORNING, Calif. -- The family of a dead elderly woman cremated her remains on a makeshift barbecue and continued collecting her retirement checks amounting to more than $25,000, authorities in Northern California said. Ramona Allmond's daughter and grandson were arrested Sunday on suspicion of embezzlement, elder abuse and disposing of a body without a permit.Allmond, 84, likely died of natural causes, though investigators were still trying to determine the exact cause of death, said Tehama County sheriff's Capt. Paul Hosler.Allmond's daughter, Kathleen Allmond, 50, and Allmond's grandson, Tony Ray, 30, told investigators their relative died in December. They left her body on her bedroom floor for a week before cremating the remains in their back

I'm not a political blogger, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn

Watched the whole damn thing tonight, and it was a whole lot more of the same for me. Except for one small thing that I really do have some expertise in... If McCain is going to try and hold up Palin as an advocate for special needs children, maybe he should spend 5 minutes with her and figure out the fucking difference between Autism and Downs syndrome! What a damn idiot, and Palin doesn't have enough "street cred" with any of us that are special needs parents yet, since her kid is a little over 5 months old and she hasn't really had time to figure out whats up. (stepping down off of soapbox now)

The card sent around the world!

Updated 10/14 noon-ish... Mr. Nobody is the big winner, and since he is new to me, I will not traumatize him with an ass-scan. I am a winner! Teri from Family Tree Junkie passed on the traveling card to me!! I am sitting on the couch basking in the glow of it's awesomeness right now. Actually, astute blog readers will probably figure out I am typing instead of basking, but you get the gist... Teri got the card from the wonderful Jen and in order to continue the chain, somebody has to be the next in line. So leave a comment if you want to be the next to receive this wonderful card, and I will draw straws, or accept the largest bribe to decide who will get it next. Here are the rules, because without rules, we might all go "Lord of the Flies" or some such nonsense... Official rules & regulations: • When You Get “The Card”post a photograph/scan of it’s arrival & contents • Ask readers to leave a comment if they want the card next • Pick the blogger who is wort

The Beijing Olympics that nobody heard about

Last month, the Summer Paralympic Games concluded in Beijing, and you probably couldn't name a single athlete that competed. And that is a real shame. Because unlike the more well known athletes who are going to get their faces on cereal boxes, sign endorsement deals for millions, and parley their moment in the world's eye into an entire career, these athletes truly compete for the love of the sport. And they do it against greater odds than any of their able bodied brethren. The Denver Post ran a column about a local swimmer who has been spending up to 4 hours in the pool a day training, while going to school at the same time. And not studying basket weaving, she wants to go to medical school. Check out Erin Popovich , she really is somebody you should know.

Don't just send the kids out, go as a family. It's fun and it's educational! Just because Junior done got stuck in the clothes hamper doesn't mean he has to miss all the fun! Father of the year? I think he is the leader in the clubhouse at this point... Uncertain about what you want to go as? Just let your inner freak out... Granny don't need no f-ing costume!!

I heard of a "fun" thing to do, Googling for images based on the name of your blog. Most of you just know me as Skylers dad, which brings up it's own set of problems. There is an adult site associated with Skyler, but there is probably an adult site out there associated with every name in the book! But when you search for my real blog name, "Some days it's not worth chewing through the leather straps", you are just begging for trouble! Some of the items that are somewhat postable, and still be somewhat less than x rated are: I made these smaller...
