Spoon on Nose


I had to go into work for a while tonight and missed dinner with the family. When I got home I checked out the camera and this is what I found: the old spoon on the nose trick


I have no idea what goes on around here when I'm gone.

Little Bunny Foo Foo


Mary recently caught one of our backyard garden bunnies hiding in the grass.


Today the little guy was bravely hanging out on our patio checking.

Chocolate Face


Today Mary made To Die for Chocolate Cake from the St. Benedict Preschool Cookbook which collected recipes from the families of all the preschool children. Since the recipes are all family favorites, there is some really great stuff.


Will got to help clean up when Mama was done making the cake batter. When you are four, there are fewer things better in life than getting to lick the spatula clean!

A few months ago I came across the top idiot warning message while attempting to delete an iPhone app in iTunes. It was very late at night and I was typically sleep deprived. I read the message a few times, rubbed my eyes, and read it a few times again. No matter what, I couldn't make sense of it. I took a screen image and saved it to reconsider another day.

Today I updated iTunes to version 10.0 and afterward tried to delete some apps and got the same message again. But, notice the first line; "application" has been changed to "app." Somebody at Apple actually read this warning message and decided that what it needed for the new updated version of iTunes was to change how app/application was referenced...but no other changes were necessary.

Not a week goes by where I don't wonder about some program: "Do the people who wrote this program really use it themselves?" I still can't make sense of this message. Just for search engine purposes, the text of the message:

Do you want to move the selected app to the Recycle Bin, or keep it in the Mobile Applications folder?

Only files in the Mobile Applications folder will be moved to the Recycle Bin.

Cancel - Move to Recycle Bin - Keep Files

Today, Mary and I celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary. Ma and Pa were kind enough to come over and babysit while Mary and I enjoyed a nice quite evening at the Polo Grill where a bouquet with 15 red roses was waiting at the table. The food was amazing and only surpassed by the company.

The firm I work for had a suite at the new ONEOK Field tonight for the last regular season home game of the Tulsa Drillers. The Drillers lost but it was a good game that came down to the last batter.


I played a half-dozen years of little league, watched my sister play high school softball, played in various intramural and recreational leagues, been a Cubs fan for nearly 40 years, watch the occasional World Series game and enjoy catching a few minutes of Sports Center late at night. In all that time I never before heard (or don't recall) the term "walk-off hit" or "walk-off home run." How did I miss this? Everyone around me tonight knew the term when the announcer mentioned it over the intercom. Funny how you can duck and dodge a single piece of knowledge for half a lifetime. Cool though that I learned something new today.

Today was Will's first ever day of school. It is a perfect start consisting of just three half-days of pre-school a week. We were completely amazed at everything Drew learned when he went through the same program two years ago. Will is very excited and has been looking forward to going to school for a long time.


Landon will have to do some adjusting as his two big brothers are now both in school. Compare Drew's first day of pre-school two years ago.
