That's what happens on computer/geek/technical message boards to keep a message thread active.  They're usually sorted by the latest post, so bumping a thread brings it back to the top of the list.  I felt the need to bump my blog. 

Not a whole lot has been going on.  Oh, except that we got a new car for the eldest child over the weekend.  (Did I get any pictures? No-o-o-o...)  She drove it back to school yesterday.  It made it - that makes it a successful purchase.

My Sweetie and I attended a tea tasting last week.  I took pictures, and I'm composing a blog entry, but it's taking too long to come together.

The weather is "cold."  I still didn't wear a jacket today, but the temperature dropped about 15 degrees from the time I arrived at work yesterday and when I left.  Brisk is an apt description.

Oh, another thing distracting me from blogging is the Major League post-season.  After nothing except one lone, playoff loss about 10 years ago, the Texas Rangers made it to the World Series two years in a row.  They play Game 1 of the World Series tonight in St. Louis.  I've followed them since the early 70's, watching them have 2/3 of a good season, with the other 1/3 always wiping out any success from the majority of the season.

That's about all for now.  So, there. 



  1. When we moved to Arlington we did not know a soul. Ranger tickets were cheap in those days. You could GREAT seats for eighteen bucks a pop. And you could bring an ice chest full of food and drink in. Brent would take me and I'd happily engage in chatter with every willing soul around me. I stood and sang and did the motions to every single ditty...I actually had the lineup memorized at that time.

    I am over them since I can't make it my social outlet. OH, I want them to win, but I'm not a true fan. More of a hot dog in my hand talking with my mouth full fan...Brent is pretty stoked though. I had to shush him when that grand slam was hit the other night. The girls were in bed, we live in a moderate house and he started yelling and cheering...

    He thinks I'm quite the party pooper.

  2. Love me some RANGERS! We are super pumped at La La Land.

  3. Andi, yeah, I was just a tad raucous when Cruz hit that. Plus, I must have stirred up some dust because it got in my eye and blurred my vision. Walk-off grand slams are generally saved for Hollywood.
    (And for the record, I'm not sure where the dust came from. You can't find any in our house. No, never. O;^) )

  4. World Series??? ummmm. soooo. I assumed that this was going to be a college story about friends! :)
