Getting Old

Signs you might be getting old (and by 'you,' I clearly mean me because how the heck would I know if you're old or not??):My daughter starts high school next year. I no longer understand the teen-speak (no, seriously. If I'm around 2 or more of them, it's like I'm in a completely different country..it's maddening). Periods of time like 3 or 4 years no longer seem like such a long time (I can remember being a teen and it seemed like it would take FOREVER to go from one year to the next. Now I see friends I haven't seen in a few years and its like I just saw them last week). Saying things like 'I can remember when I was a teenager' and only half mean it. And this: Yes. that's right. I just flipped 100,000 miles on my car this weekend. This is a car I got in 2000 and it only had 27,000 miles on it. It's been a good little car for me. And I'm sure it will make a good starter car for my daughter when she starts driving in a couple of year…

I Really Hate to do This, but

Something's been bugging me for a while. It's the notion that if you disagree with a particular President of the United States whose name happens to rhyme with 'Forge Tush, ' then my friends, you hate God, America, and FoxNEWS. What's worse...you might even be one of them liberals (I was hoping Blogger wouldn't censor such a dirty word).And here's the thing. I'm none of the above. I don't affiliate with any particular political slant. I think there are pros and cons to each and am constantly amazed that 2 parties is enough for most people. Although, I have to admit, I'm not a fan of FoxNEWS (fair and what?). And I happen to think our current president is like one of those lottery winners you see that wins and says all of this cool altruistic stuff that they're going to do with their winnings and 2 months later you see them drinking Boone's Farm from a brown paper sack because they simply couldn't handle that much money...that much po…

Snow Day

Man...I forgot what a good snow was like. We are currently under a Blizzard Warning for the next 3 hours and under a Level 2 Snow Emergency. Which pretty much means you shouldn't drive unless you have to. And I don't have to.So I'm gonna stay in.Did I go outside and play in this? Of course I did. Did I try out my fancy used Snow Blower that I've had 2 years and only used 5 times? Yes. But dude...it did NOT like the 10inches of snow in my driveway. Luckily one of our neighbors has the industrial big brother of mine and he did everyone's driveway.And that's about all I got for this post. It's cold outside and I'm warm inside.Here's hopin' you can say the same.And now a few pix from this afternoon.Tommy and the neighbor plotting their revenge......from their super-secret snow-fortCasa de Todd.The autobot doesn't so much like the snow.The neighbors. And I think that red and black lump is Tommy.This is looking down my street. Only...there's n…
