Yard Art

When we lived in Benton there was a manhole cover in our front yard. Not in the street, in our yard. The pups loved it. They would stand on it as a starting point and then run down the hill over and over. WD, however, cursed its existence every day for the 5 years we lived there. If only he had read Manhole Covers by Karl Shapiro, then he might have embraced it as a symbol of strength and longevity. Or not.

  1. That's right I forgot about the twins! I guess it's not too surprising then that we are having a girl. We are so excited it's going to be so much fun!!

  2. Actually, it's not fun at all! You should probably just leave little Alexis at my house. And you and Mike can visit any time you want. Ha, ha! No, seriously. You can leave her here.

  3. Hey! I just wanted you to know that I really enjoy reading your blog!! I'm blocked at school from commenting, so I guess I've been a bit of a lurker. Maybe I'll get around to blogging some day too. You've inspired me.

  4. Ginger! Thanks for reading! Blogging will be a great way to record all those funny things Lainey's bound to say and do--I know if I didn't blog, I'd end up forgetting half the stuff I've written about.

  5. Well, I don't think we're going to have any problem getting Aunt Allison to babysit! You're funny!! :)
