Proud Dad

This is going to be really short as I have no pics to go with it.

I got home yesterday to find my 9 yr old with really short hair. She has been growing it out for a while now for "Locks of Love". Yesterday she donated 10 1/2 inches of pretty brown hair.

I wish I had pics because that much really makes a difference. I like the new look.

Not sure if she actually looks older or if I am just looking at her differently now but it does make a daddy proud.

Outside My Window

WARNING: Nature Stuff Below.

Looking out the front window at the house I found this.

We call them writing spiders. Legend has it if you show them your teeth they will write your name and you will die. Cheery eh?

They don't have the best handwriting.

Well this guy must not have heard the legend. I spose pinchers count as teeth.

Moral of the story: It pays to listen.

I didn't hear about this part of the legend.

My lips are sealed.

Overheard In The Restaurant

My youngest turned nine Friday. We took her and a friend bowling and then to Texas Roadhouse for dinner. As we were waiting for our meal she was explaining to her friend her family tree.

"I'm part Irish, German, Country and Cherokee."

Not to be out done her friend replied, "I am part Italian, Country and just became part Irish because my aunt just married an Irish guy."

So using that line of thought: I am part Hillbilly and used to be part African American till My Sis got a divorce then she remarried and now I am also part Yankee.
