…and he was in our bedroom at 11:30 PM!
Ok this just shows how weird our life is sometimes. About ten years ago Becky was walking to the kitchen in our previous house. She stepped into the living room and felt something warm and fuzzy. At first she thought it might be the cat but it wasn’t. She turns on the light and it was a MOLE! Blind & black with giant front claws and a starburst shaped snout. So weird! So we boxed him up and let him go in a neighbor’s yard down the street. What! I wasn’t going to let him loose in MY yard.
So tonight I’m out front in the storm walking the dog (for all the good it does). Suddenly Becky comes to the front door screaming “Scott you have to come in and get this frog in our bedroom! He’s huge! Giant!”
Now being the good husband I of course believed her, thinking it was just a big tree frog. She kept insisting it was a giant bullfrog. I was like no way… it’s just a tree frog… maybe a Cuban tree frog. They get pretty big. So I head to the bedroom. “It’s behind my nightstand!”, Becky shouts. So I take a look.
“HOLY CRAP!”, I shout. “That thing is freakin’ huge!” It was an honest to God Mark Twain Croaker! I grabbed a garbage bag and tried to manuver it out without hurting it. It spooked and jumped three feet up the wall! Peeing the whole time too. And did this thing stink! That rotten sweet sewer smell. Ugh! I thought the dog was eating out of the cat box again, but it was the frog. So I got him in the bag and took him over to the pond across the street. He booked it outta there and was gone. Not even a thank you. We have NO idea how he got in our house let alone back behind Becky’s night stand. Our cat alerted Becky to ‘something’ behind it. She thought it might have been the hamster.
Now you are thinking, how big could it have been… really? Well feast your eyes on Jeremiah…

From a Minnesota fisherman…
“I was going to build the Gazebo on the edge of my dock down by the lake but I thought …I might just as well build the deck with floats on it and I can then take it out fishing too. It has a 15,000 lb. capacity. The deck is 18ft x 18ft with 12 plastic foam filled dock floats that are 4ft x 4ft by 18 inches high and the Gazebo is 10 ft.. Hexagon with a table and chairs. Inside, under the table is my trolling motor so I can take it out to my favorite fishing hole. The trolling motor is remote controlled wireless so I can be fishing outside and operate the motor. On the top of the table I have a LOWRANCE Fish-Finder with depth sounding sonars and temp gauge. I have 2 electric winches with 40 lb. anchors. I have also built in a water pump so I can clean the fish right on the spot. Now I can relax and fish while my wife can sit and relax.”
I say huzzah and make me one dude!

If this hits I’ll never get my lawn dried out enough to mow it. *sigh*

I hardly slept at all last night. Sliding screen door kept slamming the house out back. Lock it you say? I would, had I not lost the entire door locking gizmos when I took it off for Charlie 4 years ago. *sigh* procrastination kills… my REM state.

A great new day in my corporate life! Very rarely does one get the chance to start a new job then in a few months get moved to a brand new building and floor with all brand new stuff. I mean brand spanking new. Long gone is the putty-colored square box cubicle. Huzzah! Now I get to live in a brand new hexagon! Yep, just a worker drone in the hive collective. A good little busy bee I am. I’m still adjusting to the new space and location, but I think it will work out just fine… as long as I keep my headphones on.
Be sure to check out my Facebook photo album and read the captions.
Read it quick and then GET BACK TO WORK!

Well life has taken over a bit, well actually the expansion pack for my favorite video game has. I realized I haven’t posted in a month or two so here’s an update…
I’m sick. I have a really bad head cold. I lost my voice completely just days before I am supposed to sing with the worship band at church for the first time. I made it to practice just in case, but as of this post… I doubt I’ll be up on stage this weekend. At least I can talk a bit again. For a day I had nothing but a squeak… literally. I am so bummed out right now. I guess someone, (insert favorite name for the devil here), doesn’t want me to sing. BUT I WILL BE VICTORIOUS! MUHAHAHAHA! I WILL SING AGAIN!
Now where’s my Nyquil and my blanky… Hooooooooney!?

Well I decided to start my own blog… separate from my wife’s blog. I also decided to try out WordPress.com instead of using Blogger. My hope is to start posting daily, but at least weekly if I can’t keep up the daily pace. Well wish me luck.
