I hope you have a great time!!

I really need to remember to look that up early in the season, I am dying to get my boys to Fenway. I can still remember the first time I saw the left field wall (Green Monster) in person. Having a Fenway frank in the park, and an Italian sausage outside the park. I still get chills when I walk into the old ballpark.

Home again, moms laser surgery went well and she is now home again too and resting. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.

We had fun going through some thrift stores, all I found this time was a great buy on Canadian Geographic and Our Canada magazines for only 10cents each. These are excellent magazines full of good articles and stories.

My brother changed the oil in my van and fixed a few things, it is running smooth again. I love my brother!

I guess everyone is different, but I would find it hilarious. I love humor. You can joke with us here, instead!

I had to go to Memphis for work once. DH went with two of my female co-workers & me. We drove to Graceland after dark & had to stop for gas. DH filled the tank for my female co-worker & we were all afraid (DH included). We did stop to take a picture in front of the gates of Graceland. It's a nine hour trip from here---we have a wide state! I don't know if we'll get back there or not. Downtown was cool at night.

Good evening,

We had a busy day, my wife and I were suppose to head to Six Flags without the boys today, but Mother Nature made us switch our plans. Lots of rain earlier today. Lots of shopping, school shopping for the boys in general. We hit a different Hallmark than the one we went to last week, they had a large section of Halloween items set up. Very cool, and of course I had to go play with the buttons on all the ornaments. (They had last years chocolate filled Advent Calendars on sale at 90% off, for some reason I just can't seem to find a reason to buy old chocolate.)

I hope you all had a great day.


Good night all!!
