Beer Wench

Here’s a picture of Mom recovering from her Breckenridge Oktoberfest adventures.  I didn’t get a pic of her carrying the liter-size mugs, 5 in each hand, though… Thanks to Josh (Tina’s nephew) for picking up the apron.  Dad wanted a picture of one of these, and this way I didn’t have to stop a random stranger [...]

I’m back! Again…

Hi all!  I’ve been called out twice recently for being a blogging slacker (slacking blogger?), so I thought I’d post some stuff.  I don’t have cute babies to show off like Shannon does, but… I do have pictures and videos!  At sydnieann.shutterfly.com, you can see pictures of the McConnell family reunion camping trip.  Yes, there are [...]

Sheriff Buford T. Lady

Courtesy of a very patient St. Bernard and a computer guy with super smart photo mash-up skills and an affection for big goofy pups. Here are lots more pup pics – one album from when my folks and Reggie came to visit, and one album of Lady patiently wearing dollar store aviator shades.

A Note On Personal Responsibility and Shopping Carts

So, the other night, I left BIG BOX GIANT SUPERSTORE, went to my car, and found that someone left their (empty) shopping cart parked directly behind my trunk.  I’m pretty sure they weren’t leaving it there to be considerate to me, considering that since my car was already parked and empty, I was already inside [...]

Snowmass Craftiness

I spent last weekend in Snowmass Village, at Tina’s uncle’s house, where he’d invited Tina & her son & her nephew to come up & do some golfing for a few days.  Given my golf game on a normal day (BAD!!), I don’t ever golf with these people – they all play well, and play for money, and [...]

I’m back. Again. Worst Blogger Ever.

OK, I’m back again.  I’m such a big slacker – I’m always thinking of stuff to post, and then never posting it.  So, we’ll start fresh, here on July 20, with a craft project and an observation! Here’s what I’m wearing today.  I got the jade beads in Chinatown in Toronto.  I don’t usually do [...]

I voted!

http://www.sportsline.com/spin/story/10177232 This is fun!  It’s a contest for the most dominant college sports mascot.  My Cowboys have done astonishingly well so far!!  By the time I heard about it, we were about to win the semi-final round of the “Humans” region.  They’re now in the final round, against the Michigan State Spartans, and they are [...]

Pictures!

sydnieann.shutterfly.com Here are some new pictures – some of my ADORABLE nieces from my VERY QUICK trip to Wyoming, and some of the pups on Easter.  This is a quick post!  I’m not feeling very wordy tonight!  I think I’ll be asleep in about 15 minutes… YAWN.

Remember Your 7th Grade Geography?

Here‘s a fun game.  As soon as you click on the link, a 10 minute timer will start.  You need to enter all 50 states, spelled correctly, within the 10 minutes.  I got 49 of them, forgetting only the state with Super Bowl winners and a very popular car race.  Go figure.  I’m a little [...]

I’m back, again

Yes, once again, it’s been months since I actually posted anything.  Pretty exciting blog I run here, huh?  I just got back from vacation in Cancun!  Tina’s uncle and a bunch of his buddies spend all of their time travelling around golfing all over the continent, and he invited her, Jimmy, and her nephew Josh to [...]
