Gold and White

No, I have no life. Which is why I'm sitting at my computer on a Saturday night when I should be  out, doing something wicked.  

This has been around the Internet with people speculating on the color of the dress in the photo below. It looks gold and white to me - not blue and black.

Visiting Snow

My grandson, Liam, and my daughter had to travel three hours to find snow. There are parts of the US where finding snow is far less of a challenge even during this epoch of global warming.

A Father's Love

A man was telling his buddy "You won't believe what happened last night. My daughter walked into the living room and said, "Dad, cancel my allowance immediately, forget my college tuition loan, rent my room out, throw all my clothes out the window, take my TV and my laptop. 

Please take any of my jewelry to the Salvation Army or Cash Converters. Then, sell my car, take my front door key away from me and throw me out of the house. Then, disown me and never talk to me again. Don't forget to write me out of your will and leave my share to any charity you choose."

"Holy Smokes," replied the friend, "she actually said that?"

"Well, she didn't put it quite like that. She actually said, 'Dad, meet my new boyfriend--Ossama. We're going to work together on Hillary's election campaign!'"

T-Ball Season

3 years old and it's his first official day of t-ball practice. He's been practicing with his older brother, but now it's all on him. Don't hit me up for World Series tickets when he's playing with the majors -- just don't.

Pets down the Sewer

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are a fictional team of four teenage anthropomorphic turtles, named after four Renaissance artists, trained by a large rat (Splinter) in karate. From their home in the storm sewers of New York City, they battle petty criminals, evil overlords, mutated creatures, and alien invaders while attempting to remain hidden from society.

They came into popular media when my children were young. Now that I have grandchildren, they are making a come-back and my 6 year old grandson wanted a turtle themed birthday cake.

According to comic book lore, the pet turtles were flushed down the toilet into the New York City sewer system where they came in contact with radioactive material and grew to be about 5'5" tall. Yes, the scenario is realistic.
