Which Way?

Posted on Sep 12, 2009 in Silly |

I’ve come to realize that there is more than one way, more than just one right way, more than just one wrong way to do just about anything. Took this picture today in Saratoga. Glad to know I’m not the only one whose not always clear which way to go.

La Gringa’s Got a Tattoo!

Posted on Sep 7, 2008 in La Gringa, Silly |


Well, some people get married, La Gringa gets tatted (Is tatted a word?).

The Things had an interesting activity at preschool today to teach them about Lent and Easter.

From what La Gringa and I could gather, they took biscuit dough, stuck a marshmallow in the center, wrapped it up and baked them. The results were that the marshmallow melted, but the biscuit became sweet, describing how Christ’s body remained but he rose from the dead.

Christ has died, Christ has risen, Christ is a Marshmallow.
