Like I have said before, I am WELL AWARE that my sense of humor and curiosity are not that of most people and I am okay with that. I totally agree with a statement my Sister made the other day as it applies to me as well that "I find things funny that I shouldn't" :) We have very dry, slightly sick and sadistic senses of humor. Now, I read a lot and read a variety of info from many different places such as books, magazines, almanacs, newspapers, websites and even the little religous pamphlets folks knock on your door and leave...why? Because it is interesting to me and you can find hilarity in anything you just have to be open to it!! One of my favorite sections of the newspaper, any newspaper for that matter, is the classifieds. The classifieds you ask? Yep, you would NOT believe the things people want to sell, how much they want for them, their descriptions of property, items, etc... the "services" people sell....and some of my personal faves the "in rememberance" photos and poems, etc! (I know, not nice...lol)
With that said, I have come across a new love in my reading endeavors that might actually rival with my absolute love of Wikipedia.... this contender would be none other than the Internet advertising/trading site of CRAIGSLIST!!!!!!!! This awesome site is jammed packed with a veritable wealth of information from local sports memorabilia for sale to a charming little section called "rants & raves" where people can anonymously make posts to "rant" or "rave" about ANYTHING! If I do not have your curiosity stirring yet, this little gem will definitely do it....there is also a section called "missed connections" in which, amazingly to me, people post things such as "I saw you walking down the spice aisle at the Pig Tuesday evening around 7 pm. You smiled at me as I grabbed the paprika! E-mail me with the color shirt I was wearing in the subject line....let's get coffee or chat." YES, VIRGINIA, I AM SERIOUS!!!!!!!!!! I have stumbled upon a plethora of reading entertainment that is, lucky for us, replenished 24 hours a day!!!! I'm telling you, I spent no less than an hour and a half last night skimming through all these wondrous posts!! I have found that someone thought they saw their soul mate in a bag boy at the Publix, the going rate for a king-size headboard is about $150.00 and you can hire anyone from an attorney to a dog sitter ALL ON THE SAME SITE!!!
Thank you, Mr. Craiglist Inventor, Thank. You.

And of course Terry just HAD to try out the old tongue to pole theory on the flag poles in the graveyard next door, which by the way all 3 flags are FROZEN in place hanging there....lol

Enjoy, kids....no need to thank me... :) :) :)
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Uncle Taco!!!
Now look CLOSELY in the middle of the pic....that is TREVOR, our miniature dachshund...LOL... from the looks of it you'd think there was an arctic blast screaming through our house!!! He pulled the throw blanket off the back of the chair then burrowed under it and the pillows....rotten to say the least lol and what a life, eh??? I said to him "Trevor, what are you doing" (why? I have no clue....I do this frequently and then look at him like I expect him to actually answer me or something, knowing full well if her ever went "well, Jennifer, I am trying to keep warm in your cold-ass house" that I would totally freak *giggles*) and he just barely lifted his head, looked at me, wagged his tail a sec then covered back up....lol...maybe he has the right idea, wish I could stay buried under the pillows and blankets somedays.... *smiles*

With that said, I am in no way, shape or form trying to make fun of or minimize what happened yesterday, just so you know! We. Were. Robbed. YES - someone who WAS SO NOT supposed to be in OUR house was in there...it makes me feel extremely creepy and uneasy to know that someone was lurking about and rummaging through OUR stuff and all up in OUR space!!! The only thing taken was the Wii (which the joke is on said burglar due to the fact that said Wii does not work *sinisterly snickers*) which we are truely thankful for but "things" are replaceable, you know?!?! Mother & the boys, B&b drove up and we are assuming said burglar ran off when he/she heard the truck because the front door was open when they had kicked in the back door to enter. I am just so glad that no one was hurt, everyone is OK and we can move on!!! I won't lie though...it makes me weird still and I get a creepy feeling but I know/hope this will pass soon enough.
(and yes, this is the Reader's Digest version of what happened... :))
Mother & Peyton left the Thursday before New Years and went to Marietta to spend some time with our Aunt Lynnie & Uncle Gare so Terry & I were left to our own devices for any New Years festivities. My friend Ashley called and asked us to come over and watch the UGA game, grill out and shoot some fireworks for New Years so that is exactly what we did! I am not a UGA fan at all so their loss did not make me cry at all - sorry to my UGA pals :) - we had a good time with good friends and PTL no one was injured when the guys were shooting ( I called it "playing with" lol) the fireworks.
Lesson Learned on New Years Eve: EXTREMELY DRY GRASS AND FIREWORKS DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT GO TOGETHER!!!! (just ask Marc...tee hee)
