Hence, it's Camera Unload Day, folks! Let's get started.
I put this on my Back Talkin' blog last week, but it deserves some limelight here also. While Clint looks for hardware and tools at Farm & Fleet, I keep myself occupied by wandering around with my camera. You can find good stuff there. Like Anti-Monkey Butt powder. With calamine.
Also, at Farm & Fleet: Pigs Magazine.
Darn! I didn't check out the centerfold!
This is manuscript page from a book I recently worked on. This is what we, in the industry, refer to as "heavily edited."
For future reference, I have nick-named SPC Steven Moore "SteebMo." I promised him I'd come up with a pet name for him, and that is the one that evolved, during his time here in our house.
It was taco night at our house. Here's how SteebMo prepared his:
SteebMo Taco Recipe: Mix all into a big plate of taco blop and crush chips over it.
Clint followed suit.
Did you know Duct Tape makes bandages?! I like the idea of a good sturdy band-aid, and might have to pick up a box of these things.
Here are Melissa and Lori demonstrating "How To Give a Hug to Someone You *Really* Don't Want to Hug."
Here's G, enjoying Cindy & Kirby's alphabet book. G flipped out over that Tractor!
Brian and SteebMo joined me at Mom's house to do a little yard work. Thank God, because I got there early to find that a squirrel had drowned in a garbage can filled with rain water. I reserved that job for burly soldiers that weren't grossed out by dead rodents. SteebMo fished the nasty thing out, and Brian dumped the squirrel water for me.
I also reserved the "get up on top of the house" chores for the men. I get queasy standing on a kitchen chair, so there was no way I was crawling on top of a house. SteebMo volunteered, and used the leaf blower to rid the roof of pine needles.
Then we bagged up the pine needles. Bagged and bagged and bagged them. The boys didn't find this very fun, no they didn't.
Here's the Fat Tire beer someone brought to Brian on the last day he was here. A neighbor we don't know just walked down the street and handed it to him. The things that people will bother to do for others, in a day, just blows me away sometimes.
Here's a tray full of boxes. Lisa is my source, she orchestrates getting all of our Toys for Troops boxes for us, from her workplace recycle bins.
This is the bouquet that was waiting for me when I got home from Georgia, after Mother's Day. Brian's friend Chris Hinton has taken care of me on Mother's day, dropped in with hugs, cards, and flowers, since Brian left for bootcamp. This bouquet lasted for a good 2 weeks, even after being delivered to my door in a box.
This pic kills me. Clint, too tired to remove the utility room doors to get to the back of the dryer, decided to go up and over to uncrimp the hose behind it. Oh, the things I'd like to do with this photo and Photoshop...
Thanks to the functioning dryer, I was able to send the boys back to GA with nice, fresh, cami's.
This concludes today's episode "this is my life in photos." I will now get about taking more random photos, and be back in 4-6 weeks with the next installment.
