SNAPSHOTS FROM THE WEEKEND

Snapshots from the weekend.

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /> 

We’re planning to redo the closet in the little bedroom. Repaint and install some kind of closet system for storage. Of course before we can do this. We have to clean out the Black Hole of the Little Bedroom Closet. So this weekend video shelves got moved and drawers got sorted. Just scraped the surface this week so it will take a little while.

 

The <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Portland contingent came down for the Oregon game. The game was late in the day so we actually got a good visit in. They needed to get over to Autzen in time to fine a place to park the rig in the shade. They brought down one of the dogs, so they needed the shade. A few weeks back all the dogs were piling on each other and Ranger was on the bottom. He ended up with a broken leg. He’s getting better and getting around, but there was no way sis was leaving him at home where he could get in more trouble.

 

So far the Ducks (it’s still a strange name for team and I graduated from the U of O, LOL) are three for three. Fresno State may have been behind the whole way but they never gave in. And just for the trivia fans, this was Mike Belotti’s 100th victory since he came to Oregon. So that was kind of neat.

 

As a follow up, there was a whoopee whoopee story I the paper this morning about the number drunk drivers ticketed this weekend. Four last weekend, ten ( a whole ten ) this weekend. Considering that both Oregon and Oregon State had home games this weekend, I’d suspect that the actual percentage that they picked up was actually down from last weekend. I swear almost every driver in the state was on I5 at some time between Saturday and Sunday. Yippee Skippy guys, I am so impressed.

 

The flowers are starting to go. Black eyed susans do not like it when the weather turns cooler and damper, the susans tend to sort of curl up and go bye bye.  Some of the shrubs are still looking good, but things are winding down. The veggies are still doing well, just hope that it stays warm a little longer. You can only eat so many fried green tomatoes and green tomato relish.

 

Darn, it’s dark by eight now.

 

Not a lot to say right now. The inspiration tends to come and go depending on how sleepy I am by the time I have time to write. LOL

Poor Ranger. I hope he is getting around okay.
Yep, it is getting dark early enough that my little kid doesn't argue about bedtime any more.
