That's funny you said that because as we shopped for bikes I kept seeing baskets and telling Wayne I am going to get one for my doggies. I actually saw one meant for pets, it has an enclosure to hold them in it. I really wouldn't get one though because with the way my dogs are it would freak them out to ride in it but I am sure some dogs would love it!!! I do plan to get a basket just to hold items in it. We also plan to sometime take the bikes to the lake so the basket can hold a picnic lunch in it. Ride around, stop for a light lunch and continue riding. Can't wait!!!

Well it's hump day! I hope everyone is having a good week so far. I am still on cloud 9 from the Super Bowl win! I watched Joe Flacco on Letterman Monday night, he was actually kind of funny. He also announced that his wife is pregnant with their second child. I am wondering when in the heck did he have time for that? He has been pretty busy the last few weeks with the playoffs and preparing for the Super Bowl! Okay no more Super Bowl talk from me. I know I am in the minority of people that like the Ravens.

I hope everyone has a great Wednesday and Happy Pines Day!!!!

I have something cute to share about our 3 year old granddaughter. She had watched the children's cartoon, Calliou and the story was about Calliou playing with his grandpa. After it was over, my granddaughter looked at me with a bashful smile and said, "I love playing with Papa Wayne".

She also begged him the other day not to go to work. She just loves him! She keeps us laughing all the time!

We sure are missing our grandsons! They are in school and involved in after school programs so we see them briefly here and there. We will see a lot of them this summer though!

The good thing is he doesn't start until Monday, so we won't have to worry about the drive. I will have to work, but if it is coming down 3 inches per hour like they are saying, I may have to take the day off.

Regardless, it should be an interesting evening.
I hope he finally has quit smoking.

I don't remember the storm but I remember my parents telling me the snow was up to our windows of the house we lived in at the time.
