Not much point playing classical music on Pandora with all the excited shrieking.


Who knew road work was a spectator sport?


Sam expresses concern that the excavator will crash into our house.


Nah, it's all good.

C'mon, big brother, let's hurry home and get some lunch.


I SAID HUG YOUR SISTER!


Later we went for a walk with Mex, who is recovering from a sneak attack upon his hindquarters by a vicious neighbor dog.


Some of us ran.


Ain't nothin' gonna break my stride.


Using my uncle's old walking stick.

#throwbackthursday


Before Samuel the Boy we had Sam the Cat (Onsamyetsdurak).  He died 6 years ago yesterday--it was a roller coaster week.

PS--The 4 leftmost animals (Kayla, Sam, Vinny, Neppy) are no longer with us.  Mex and Lola soldier on with new companions.

Bright light hurt eyes.


I asked Sam if he wanted to drive or walk to a meeting with his teachers. He chose to run.


Wouldn't want your dress to get snowy!

Familiar Faces

Am I the only one who sees a family resemblance?


Sam yesterday.


Mom's senior picture.

Well, I mean, minus the hat.

No One Can Tell Us We're Wrong

Our bodies are a battlefield:

To the naked eye, your body may not look like the site of much action, but take a closer look and you'll see the microscopic battles being waged every moment of every day, between our bodies' invaders and the systems that fight back.

Sam's been obsessed of late with germs--good and bad--immune systems, washing hands, etc.  Not entirely unwelcome, since it's a health issue and he's asking lots of good questions.  Can be a little annoying at times.  And I'm still debating whether to show him the YouTubes or not--some of the things look like Transformers, so he might find them cool, or just freak out.

It's quite possible Sam will break an ankle in Mommy's boots, but nobody listens to me.

I Would've Gotten Away With It, Too

If it weren't for these sledding kids:


Let's go get Sammy!


Sometimes it's good to remember where you came from.


Oops, got a little too much speed and didn't corner well in the woods.

Easiest pull of the season with the packed snow. They practically glided with little effort on my part.
