Silly Pictures

How Child #3 beats me at Guitar Hero.


How I got to school during the Canadian winter.

Why am I posting a slacker post?

Muchos writing to do today. Brake job scheduled for van. First-pass galley pages for I So Don't Do Spooky to arrive later today. Family wants food and clean clothes.

So, enjoy the sparse, but hopefully humorous, post. :)

Hey Barrie,
I bet those webbed toes give Child #3 a distinct advantage at Guitar Hero. And while you were riding your moose to school during the Canadian winter, I was falling off a burro trying to make it to school in Escondido. The good ol' days!

Yep, my kids can beat me at video games without using hands either!

Love the moose shot too!

Beth said...

Your moose looks remarkably similar to the one I rode to school - although perhaps the antlers on yours are a bit bigger!

I love the moose pic. Maybe Sherry should rescue a moose in book #2.

I got boo'd off the stage at guitar hero. I suck.

Bina said...

I love the feet and guitar! And the moose? Hooked to a harness? I just watched Animal Planet last night about how you should never EVER approach a moose and a moose is the only animal who has NEVER been trained as a pet. Obviously, they didn't see this picture! LOL

Don't you hate it when they want to eat and have clean clothes?!?

Cid said...

Love the moose, looks like the one outside my igloo right now!

You know what the Germans - aka my husband - does when the kids are clamoring for food? Throws chocolate at them. The only unhappy person is me. I don't any chocolate. But I do get the laundry. Hang in there!

What a moose.

So, do you disinfect the guitar when she's done?
I love the moose! I've actually seen one in the wild and it scared the begeebies out of me. Mostly because it had it's calf with her and we were afraid she would find us threatening and charge or something.
Awesome picture!

Hi Barrie,

My kids beat me the same way, but they only need one foot.

JaneyV said...

Good luck with the galleys!

You had it easy. My grandfather always talked about how he had to walk 100 miles to school in a blizzard!

Sarah Laurence said...

Funny! Good luck getting everything done. You are reminding me of the pile in my laundry room, sigh.

Tell me that those antlers are a joke. They look like a satellite dish in my hood.

Kelley said...

I love the moose. I bet that is an interesting way of travel. You could always hang fog lights on the antlers for those cold foggy mornings.
