Betcha can't beat this!


Wayne and I stopped for gas tonight. I went inside to pee and get a snack. As I was going to pay, Wayne was coming in. He had his receipt in his hand. He walks up to the girl working and said, "I think I just paid .19 cents for gas." She got a horrified look on her face as she look at her pump computer. Yep. Premium gas was .19 cents!!! It was supposed to be $1.99!! Woohoo! Not that it really matters, because Wayne has a gas card for work. But Cal-Chlor only had to pay $4.25 for 21 gallons of gas!

For Dan...the trailer


Lost one...

I lost a follower of the blog some time in the past week. I wonder why... Not that it hurts my feelings or anything, and to be honest, I really hadn't noticed they left! LOL! Sigh...

Celebrating History!

Julia in her turtle fur and hat
Anna in her hat and turtle fur

Me and the girls out for dinner at Applebee's; celebrating the inauguration!! I had a Bahama Mama for Obama with dinner

Wayne and Cam
This bird let me get within about 3ft of him before he took flight. Not sure if he was ill or hurt, but was very cool to get this close!

This is a small video of Julia and what she thought about yesterday...

Here he comes!

Winter continued...

Trees near our house
Really cool drifts on the roof at that barn

Heading south on Morton Rd south of Deren

Looking east on Meisenheimer from Morton

Orchards in Riverton Township

A snow bank that was as high as the mirror on Wayne's truck!!

The snowplowed path to the garage at Poppa's

A snowmobile trail we drove down in Oceana county, near Jefferson Rd

Snow on trees

More trees covered in snow

Ollie being a goof, he loves to roll in the snow!

So, I'm sure you're wondering why I took a picture of my van tire. Welllll...I couldn't figure out what was making all the racket while driving yesterday. Um, see all that snow and ice in the wheel well? It was rubbing on the tire and making the noise! DUH! Man, do I feel stupid! LOL!

Cabin Fever getting the best of the girls and Wayne

More goofballs
Julia eating an apple while standing on the furnace at Granny's house...hair blowin all around
