WHEW! The weekend is here!!!


And a good evening to you from across the Pond at the end of a long and busy week here in the Mother Country. First off - ANNOUNCEMENT!!!!! There will be no blog tomorrow, as the Taylors will be out of the country (shocking, I know). That's right - it's time for the Brussels Booze Fest!!! Miller, Ray - I know, I know...LBRC - GPS.

The highlight of the daywould be lunch at Nando's with Muffin Puffin, Owain, and Liz. Realizing that last time my eyes were bigger than my stomach, I held off on the"extra portion" of wings, opting instead for the creamy mash (think potatoes so full of butter they are Munchinland style Yellow) and spicy rice (because, really, who doesn't need TWO SIDES OF CARBS). Hey, there's a lot of beer coming my way this weekend. It's never too early to prep for "soaking it up."

Other than that, not much to report. However, I would be remiss if I didn't share this photo with everyone. Check out the image of Adam (my stepbrother) and Pattie (my half-sister). This photo is classic for 4 reasons: First, this is the photo of Pattie on the day of her first Varsity basketball game for Cherokee. This is important because, I am proud to say, she was the only freshman named to the Varsity squad (way to go, PR - very proud of you). Second, this is the photo of Adam on his first day as a substitute teacher. Third, on this auspicious day, Adam was PATTIE'S HOME ROOM TEACHER. Classic - who knows how many spitballs went flying in that room. Fourth, if you look in the back, you'll see that the 1985 Ford Bronco (OJ style) is still alive and well at over 200K miles. This thing has seen the wars, and my dad still drives it to work even though the following gears no longer work:
1. Drive
2. Reverse
3. First Gear
Yep, it's either in 2nd gear or you are pulling into a 20 acre field to turn it. And Sean, you think I'm a cheap bastard...

So I'm about to settle in for some Sainsbury's pizza, which we'll wash down with some cheese, hummous, crackers, and Cobras. All in all, it looks to be a successful night.

That's all the news that's fit to print. Chat Sunday! Ray and Matt - I'll drink a jug of Leffe for you!

  2. Yes, and the Bronco Man's wife threatened his ever lasting life if he did not clean that thing out in preparation for its last journey on this earth. Needless to say, he did clean it out, but only to move it from under the Magnolia tree to now the front and center of our house for all to see!!! I believe Sam thinks it is his security system. Seeing the bronco sit upon that hill assures that no one would dream of venturing to that house on the hill in fear of it coming alive!! LOL - alice
