Gotta get my sister below the fold there, so here are your annual September parade pictures. How fun that the East Cobber — that suburban confection– comes just one week after Dragon*Con, land of the weird and home of the nerd-who-idealizes-the-brave. I love them both with all my heart.
I have just spent two — or more — days cooking with my favorite kitchen pal. Here are a few things I heard. (“My family’s just full of them,” she says.)
“There’s a tumble bug for every turd.”
“She’s got her pucker string pulled too tight.”
“Quit assling around!”
“That’s just picking the fly shit out of the pepper.”
And during just a few minutes of chatting with Celia …
“They have TV. They know how to act.”
Let the sleepovers begin!
Maybe the reason I love Freebird is that I’m a redneck at heart. This looks like fun — I may make the trek to Dublin some year for it, but I don’t think we’ll be home from the left coast in time this year.
Thanks to Paul C., who claims this annual festival is why …
“… at least five out of ten people I grew up with from Dublin and East Dublin claim to be from somewhere else. The other five are somewhere in this video.”
We all know I drive like a PTA mother … and have been known to bring draft beer in a plastic cup … though I wish I were Jewish, not Catholic.
Most of all, I always feel thankful for the small things.
If you love me anyway, give a little love to the East Cobb Middle School Foundation. I’ve given my time to a lot of things, but this one means the most to me. Help us bring Challenge Day back for Tom’s class.
Cubbie’s grand winter holidays. There were a lot of people in the house for two weeks, and she thoroughly enjoyed it. With no more toddlers around, all cameras were focused on puppy pics.
"Who's here now!" Cubbie the party dog.
"But it had my name on it!" She kept unwrapping her present from the Twentysomething.
Christmas Eve: new toy
no idea that the party's just getting rolling
Christmas Day with Cuzzin Quark
"Does he even know I'm here?"
"How come he gets to get on the sofa?"
Koda, the world's softest snow dog.

She shared the Hedgie for a while. Then she napped on it.
