Well… At least it\’s not blogger…..

A vacation ending dinner…..

Last night I was thrilled…. I got to make chili and couldn’t wait to dive in and eat as much as possible…. When it was done, I grabbed a big bowl, added a ton of cheese, crumbled a bunch of crackers into it and got a big glass of milk…..

After I devoured it we were watching TV and my stomach started hurting…. It progressively got worse and worse… I guess I ate a bit too much of things that will fill you up and then expand…. Anyway… I started to think that I would die it was hurting so bad….

I spent quite a bit of my night in the bathroom looking like this…..

It’s really pretty sad…. I couldn’t wait to eat it, but I don’t think I ever want to again…..

😦

That was the last night I could have stayed up late during my vacation… We go back to work tomorrow…. What an ending.

Monsters……

I never considered myself the mad scientist type…. A little mad, maybe…. but definately not a scientist….

I started blogging back in January… I got all into it- my wife didn’t get it… So one day back in May, I set her up her very own blog to try out. She posted just to see what the fuss was about…. then I sent people to visit her and she got hooked! The validation that somebody out there cares what you have to say is a bit of a rush…. She took to it and hasn’t looked back….

We posted happily for quite some time…. At some point my mother started reading our blogs… Then she started reading a few others from our links… I kept telling her she should start her own blog- I’d get the same old…. “I don’t want to be a blogger” response… One day back in September, I set her one up just for grins… I sent her instructions on how to get to it and left it alone… A couple of weeks later, she decided to make a post… She got the bug… She loves it too….

So I have created two blogging monsters… I have minimal skills in web design so I have done templates for both… I am technical support for things like Blogrolling and linking and other tidbits that they feel they need to know…

I love it! Both of these women thought I was some kind of a nutcase when I started blogging… now both are more obsessed than I am. Gotta love it!

If you haven’t been to either of their pages, go take a look… Both are far better at this than I am (they have writing skillz)…

My tree limb is gone!!!!!

The tree service I called about my broken tree finally got the time to come out today…. This was damaged when Hurricane Rita blew through. It was pretty fascinating to watch…

They started out by tying ropes to it… They had to get it out without damaging the powerlines or the fence underneath.

After they got most of the branches that were not supporting the load, one of the guy shimmied up the branch…

Then he went waaaaaaayyyyy up there to tie off some of the ropes….

Here they finally have the major part out of the tree…. hanging over my power lines and making me nervous….

I had to help guide the trunk down at this point… that was a major piece of wood! So no pics of them lowering it….

After it was all down, monkey man repelled down…

And then they chopped it up to haul out of the yard….

This was a small portion of the debris that came out of there…

How cool would it be to have one of these????

Well… My wallet is lighter, but my tree is finally gone! I kept a couple of large pieces to build something out of… I’ll post pics of that as soon as I figure out what I’m doing…. At very least it’s an excuse to play with the chainsaw!!!!
