Skyler's TV Crushes, Part 6

The local Fox affiliate has a very good looking Meteorologist that Skyler likes, Crystal Egger. She joined FOX 31 News from Idaho where she was lead weather anchor for ABC affiliate KIFI-TV. She was awfully young when she worked there, then she just got better as she got older. Those were the official pictures from the news websites, then Skyler and I found some others while we stalked, er, searched for her online. Here is a promo for a show they did on Fox: Here is more Crystal than you ever wanted to see:

Bat Tat Tuesday

After an absence last week (I have a note from my doctor) we are back and better than ever! There really isn't a theme to this week, other than some guest tats and most of you didn't want to be identified. Is that identified, or associated with this little corner of the world? Whatever, it is all good by me! First out of the chute is from Lilly of Darkness, who sent this one in: How about that? A fan of the Poo and the ATL! Is this in honor of the dude you shouldn't pick up on the highway? I have said it before, and will continue to say it. If it's a tribute to your kid, make sure it looks human! How lovely. The roll of toilet paper wasn't enough, we had to name it. Mac and Cheese!! Yummy! It may be rewarded, but points will be taken off for spelling errors. We are getting into the not safe for work section now, so watch out at work! That is some good art work, but wasted on a Pez dispenser. It's not the Ninja's hands you need to worry about... Does he

Home Depot

From my buddy Jack, this is great! Charlie was installing a new door and found that one of the hinges was missing. He asked his wife Mary if she would go to Home Depot and pick up a hinge. Mary agreed to go. While she was waiting for the manager to finish serving a customer, her eye caught a beautiful bathroom faucet. When the manager was finished, Mary asked him, "How much is that faucet?" The manager replied, "That's a gold plated faucet and the price is $500.00. Mary exclaimed, "My goodness, that is a very expensive faucet. It's certainly out of my price bracket." She then proceeded to describe the hinge that Charlie had sent her to buy. The manager said that he had them in stock and went into the storeroom to get one. From the storeroom the manager yelled. "Ma'am, do you wanna screw for the hinge?" Mary paused for a moment and then shouted back, "No, but I will for the faucet." This is why you can't send a woman to Ho

Thanks, and Vacation Report

First of all, I want to thank you all very much for your kind words on my last post about Skyler and the NICU. I appreciate all of the compliments, but I am not doing anything special. I am only doing what all of you would do in similar circumstances. Next up, Kathy, Skyler and I took a couple of days off and drove over to the western side of Colorado to a small town called Glenwood Springs. We try and go there about once a year for a day or two just to hang out in the big hot springs. Glenwood is a fun little town, and this time we tried renting a small cabin instead of the usual hotel stay. It was a pretty nice little place, with two bedrooms and a kitchen. It backs up to a mini-golf place, which was kind of fun to sit and watch the tourists knock a few around while we relaxed. Across the highway (I-70) is the mountain that burned a few years back and took the lives of several fire fighters. You can see all the dead trees still standing, and the green shrubbery that is coming b

The story of how Chris became Sky-Dad

I remember the very first Fathers Day for me pretty much like it happened yesterday. Or was it just one of some 90+ days sitting in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) at Rose hospital where Skyler was born? They all tend to run together, and yet the memories are fresh, if that makes any sense. Kathy's pregnancy was uneventful, she was, as she is today, in excellent shape. There was nothing to worry about, and she had even had a checkup the day her water broke - 3 months early. She actually didn't realize what was happening, because it wasn't a gush, more of a trickle that just wouldn't stop. I was up in Idaho Springs visiting my parents when she called me. Everyone told her the same thing, call the ambulance. Finally, she agreed and I sped down the mountain to meet her at the hospital. I was met out in the hall by a doctor Day, who grabbed my arm before I went into Kathy's room, and said "Your wife isn't in any condition to make choices right no

Screen Captures

Some folks seem to have even more time on their hands than me for coming up with odd entertainment. Witness the following screen captures and let me know if you think real or fake:

I don't know why we can't get good action films here in the US...

Bad Tat Tuesday Rides Again

You can't stop it, you can only hope to contain it! At least he gets called "Mr." Matching snakes, how fashion conscious! Go big or go home I guess. The character work is good, but the huge Finish Him is kind of over the top. I kind of like this one actually. The noose coming out of the skin adds to the ick factor. This lettering looks so perfect it almost looks fake. Have I already done this one? I lose track sometimes. But the machine gun Hello Kitty is awesome. Oh yeah, that will get you a free pass to heaven dude. It would have been better as an 8-Track! Last but not least, our friend Cormac comes through with another winner: That will give your little girl some great dreams someday buddy.
