Pimps Gang

I ran into Bobbi the Pimp and three of her gang at Senior Meals today. Quiet Jim was there along with Steady Wes and Smiley Pat. The other four were back at the hangout.

Not sure what The Pimp has in mind for these nefarious rascals…

Halloween Treats 2

I’ve got a bunch of new kids this year ranging from pre-school through six grade. I also have some veterans who remember last years candy handout.

Steph has whipped up a new batch of treats and I set the box on the floor by my seat this morning. The look on my kids faces as they boarded the bus was priceless. They knew these little bundles had to be for them! They each got one as they left the bus.

Once again, Steph does all the work and I get all the love :-)

Movies & DVDs

Hmmm, must be Sunday! I’ve been hunkered down in the cave writing code again. No shower for the second straight day, the SeaHawks lost and Steph is sleeping in the Family Room with the cat so probably no dinner unless I make it!

Life is cool though because I’ve created these content pages for everything video:


  • Box Office
  • In Theaters
  • Opening
  • Upcoming

  • Current Releases
  • New Releases
  • Top Rentals

  • Netflix
  • Amazon
  • Hulu

These links are available anytime from the Hollywood Function on your right…

When I got home from work yesterday I discovered this electrical cord extending from the kitchen to the family room. Strange, since the only one home all day was Piper…

Very puzzling! So is the little thing I whipped up below. Drag and drop the letters to solve it.

Hint: It’s the name of a hugely popular blog. Once you solve it, you must watch the video below!

The corresponding article to this video is here, and you can listen to the father of Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, who died in Benghazi, here.

I called our sprinkler system guy a couple of weeks ago about blowing out our lines but he’s been busy and still hasn’t made it here. The water needs to be expelled under pressure to keep the lines from freezing during winter. I’m assuming he’s accomplished at performing this service with snow on the ground.

Hopefully I’m not assuming too much. You think? gulp

Oh well, it’s 12 degrees right now, not too far below freezing :-)

Sunday update: Snow is melting, it’s warming up and the sprinkler guy will be here tomorrow. I talked to him yesterday and everything is cool :-)

The Blur

Piper knows that winter is closing in around us like a white vice. Her carefree days of lounging in the sun, owning the yard and terrifying rodents pretty much ended today as the snow accumulated in the yard and on her deck.

She remembers last winter where I used to play with her in my office throughout the cold nights before we went to bed. It was great therapy for her and I tried it tonight.

It entertained her for a bit but then I crawled under the footstool to check her out. My poor little baby looks so sad!
It’s going to be a long winter…

Dusting Plus

I was driving home into our sub-division this afternoon and couldn’t help but notice Fred’s Mountain (Grand Targhee Ski Resort). It looks like it’s here… Snow, skiing, icy roads, driveway shoveling, windshield scraping, frozen hands and one sweet little cat that ain’t going to be able to hunt!

Silver Star

Silver Star is our local phone and internet provider. They’ve served up my land-line and internet connection for the last seven years. Good people.

I drive by this sign North of Victor several times a day and haven’t been able to wrap my head around it. Now that an image of it is firmly planted in the Flickr cloud, I get it.

Each element represents an eight character personalized Idaho license plate. Duh…
