The Sweet Sound of Flush

I guess the big news is that our bathroom floor is finally fixed. The toilet no longer threatens to fall through the floor each time someone sits on it. It took over 24 hours without a toilet, but thank god that Robin only lives down the street.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us I know it's been ages since I blogged, but let's just admit it my life is pretty darn boring, and if there is anything going on then I don't have time to blog. I keep going in to work every day, it's still as boring as ever with the added pleasure of the Office Manager's niece in for the summer, so now there are two of us with nothing to do. We had a very full weekend, Jackson was incredible, the drive in awesome, and then a very loud very stimulating one year old's birthday party. I've never seen such a young (small just doesn't fit the bill here) child eat so much. Image Hosted by ImageShack.us The party was at a county park so Megan and her friend went swimming in the lake. Most of Gordon's family was there and it was nice to see all of them. There were multi generations of Spicers, I could pretty much recognize the those of Keith's generation but after that I was lost.

We went to the firewoks in Houghton Lake last night. Every one has always told me what a great show Houghton Lake has, but I wasn't impressed much. It was a nice show, somewhere between the drive in displays we saw as children and the Lupton fireworks in January after the snowmobile show. Just about as cold as the the Lupton show though, I guess I'm not meant to understand why it is so cold in Mid-Michigan for the fireworks. After a June of record breaking hot temperatures we have a weekend with dusk temperatures in the low fifties. We parked at a motel, conveniently there was a basketball net and Bryan had brought his baseketball. Here is a video of the next Manu Genobili. Tonight we will brave the West Branch fireworks, and with any luck I will remember to bring blankets and mosquito spray.

Since everyone else has a ticker I thought I would add one, but don't hold me to it. Oh yeah more pictures available on yahoo.

I love the giggling drive-in movie (shaking and all). I don't know who Genobili is but obviously basketball is Bryan's game. Thanks for naming your picture files with dates, it is much easier to find the parts that you haven't seen yet. That last picture of Justin is amazing.

p.s I like your ticker. Now you will have no excuse in 19 days.

Perfect picture to explain the whole layout of body parts from Megans blog.

I meant Joshua. All of these Js in your life.

I downloaded the drive in movie with the "save target as" and when it was done it said that the file had an extension not supported by Windows Media Player and they couldn't play it. So I just clicked on it and after a buffering process that took as long as a download I was able to watch it. I saved it in my gerthkids playlist but I'm assuming I won't be able to watch it unless I am signed on line. The basketball one I downloaded with the "save target as" and it played just fine. Go figure

By the way, Bryan is pretty awsome at that basket. Was it regulation height?

It seems that I need a password to view the yahoo photos. I know I have seen some before so I must have known it at one time, but I don't know it any more.

As for the basketball net, it is standard height for basketball nets that I have seen in parks and such, whether or not that is regulation I have no idea.

You shouldn't need a password for the pictures. All of my albums are open for public viewing, but if you do my sign on is my name and password is my kids' first and middle initials with last name.

Erika, I really liked it when you started dating the movies, so I could keep track of what I had downloaded and what I hadn't, I guess the photos go the same way.

I am so excited only three more days.

Is it soup yet?

I could stand in front of the boat a week ahead of time but it isn't going anywhere. Marisa may have the baby on the 19th but who really knows for sure. But you control your own destiny. You don't HAVE to wait for the ticker to tell you to blog.
