This looks like a convention of Spiderman wannabes. Big Dawg (left) was joined by is compadres from his "school" for an after hours halloween get-together.
Here is Big Dawg ... unplugged!
Chalupa's team lost their initial tournament match against a very good team. They "played up" in the C2 division against "select" teams from the Cities. This is a bit more intense than the recreational C3 level which they enjoyed all summer. Anyway, the season ended and we all managed to steal away to a terrific BBQ resturant in Rochester to eat away our sorrow.
Chalupa had basketball try-outs later that afternoon, and Peanut has signed up for a winter soccer league which begins in just a few weeks. And so it goes....

The series will be best of seven with the first two games in Boston, the next three in Denver (where they recieved between 3 - 5 inches of snow over the weekend), then finish off the series (if necessary) in Boston for the final two games.
Get your peanuts, get your beer, put you answering machine on automatic and brace yourselves for what promises to be a terrific Fall Classic. Red Sox vs. Rockies beginning Wednesday night.

Peanut's team won 11 - 0 in a home game against a team that wishes to remain anonymous (Peanut scored a goal in this game!)
Big Dog got to a B-Day party.
Side Track managed this weekend's grocery shopping (no easy task for a family of 6).
A stray dog (who we shall call Mike) showed up at noon, and was rescued by his owner by 4:30.
A lawn got mowed.Bills got paid.
Lots of baking in preparation for our tour of duty at Church Coffee Hour tomorrow (too much food to be mentioned without an independent publisher of baking books).
And an outdoor history festival was attended to. This is where the kids climbed trees (see pictures with this post).
This was just Saturday. Thank goodness we have a week of work to recover from the weekends!

False alarm. (ugh)
But, all is not lost... while sitting in the walk-in doctor's office, I got a call from Beaner. "Dad, can you pick me up for school? I don't feel so good." Of course her school is clear across town.
All this before 8:30 a.m. I wonder what the rest of the day will bring?

Here's the deal, a guy I know at work has a blog. Not sure what's on it, but he has a banner ad and has actually sold some cards though his site. Saddly this came up in a meeting and the person in charge of these banner ads asked why I've not sold any. The entire team laughed and one person said my site was not the type of place someone would go to buy Holiday Cards.
One thing lead to another and the next thing you know The Taylor Tabloid was pulled up [gulp]. It was clear from the first image people saw, this site was not established to sell holiday cards. So, all I can say is don't let images like this, prevent you from your holiday card shopping. They are nice cards and I'm certain you can customize cards to fit your personal needs and holiday message.
That's my pitch for this holiday season. Promise.
