Looks like ole Mark is the only one who updates this thing. Oh well, that's peachy but if you happen to read this there is an exclusive scoop: Alysha has her first loose tooth and it seems the tooth fairy will be visiting soon. If you have images of me in a pink tutu you're on the right track. The kids also started going to their new sitter's today, who happens to be married to my boss. Think maybe he's doing that so he can pocket my raises? ;-) The sickness has passed us all over just like the nice 65 degree weather is currently doing - by this time tomorrow I will be saying "brrrrr" and waiting for the snow to fall. Cheers!!

Alysha stayed home from school today since she was still not 100% this morning. Adam spent a good part of the day snoozing too, and telling me that he didn't feel good. Come to think of it, neither did I for a while there. This evening finds us all feeling a good deal better. Alysha still is not eating much, but seems to have recovered. In other news, I have devoured the latest Harry Potter book in my possession, the Prisoner of Azkaban
and while good, it did not seem as wonderful as the first two. There's one left in the series and I will be reading it soon, I assure you. For now it's Newsweek.

Well, this will be a short update - seeing as Alysha has developed some type of illness this evening. No details but let's just say I was convinced that it was not a ploy. Had a visit from Jer and Susan this evening to talk geek, since Jeremy is interested in building a computer. I have also run low on Beast Chow so they are getting what I have a bag full of....Kibbles and something or other. They don't care. They were spoiled this evening with the yolks from several boiled eggs, a Snausage and a whiff of cheese. Just don't tell Dave. Declan has behaved and has only challenged me a few times but he responds to decisive verbiage and no Draconian measures were called for. Damn he's a pig though. Oh, and mum, that's Grand Theft Auto III
, not Grand Auto Theft. At least the kids are in bed when I play it. It's not a nice game like Spyro. I will see what I can do about accomodating your "hint" for pictures (hint my rear end).

Having accessed Blogger, I find that two of our offspring are busy with nonsense....KT being the more fortunate in that she has an "xtra" day for her weekend - and what a weekend it will surely be! But Mark? GRANDAUTOTHEFTIII? Sounds like you wouldn't even WANT snow for such an undertaking. Hint: pictures of offspring and grandchildren are preferred over titles and such as that. Cats and dogs wanted to send you a special hello so, bar-owwwww......or perhaps meee-ark? Whatever, they seem to be enjoying their vacation from the itty bitties. Uncle Phil is now sending and receiving mail tho we have received naught from him; both he and Uncle Jimmie have been accused of both disowning and disinheriting their youngest sister since a paucity of mail has been received from those directions. He (UP) has been approved for the special hearing device and will undergo surgery early next month to have a screw inserted into his head! Interesting news about trailer trash today, thanks for the update. Gonna wish you a goodnight here - oh, hope the snow was of little depth and decent weather soon returns to the lush OV. Later..... MU

As I write out this little snippet of nothing news, there is a webcam shot of how I will be spending my evening....mwahahahaha....Joey, thanks a ton for the speedy service on this. For those of you out of the loop, the game, Grand Theft Auto III
(GTA3 for short) is all but impossible to find in the sparkling (cough) urban paradise (brack choke) of southwestern Ohio. You can't even rent it because the minute it shows up on a Blockbuster shelf, it's gone again. Oy vey. Whatever, my bud up north found it at the local Best Buy
and shot it down to me, replete with the goofiest mailing label I've ever seen... ;-)
And there IS snow on the ground now, but not much. Just enough to make muddy dog footprints all over this house. I am guessing that Maria's place has a revolving door to the outside world because that's all that Declan wants to do....go out, come in, go out, come....you get the picture.

Life is good these days - there's no snow on the ground, the days are getting longer.......and January is half over!! Even better, Monday is a holiday for those of us in cheesy bank or government positions......yeah!
Hi to all of you reading this!
Seems I've been chastised for the lack of new information on the homepage. You can all blame the fact that I have been sitting in front of the newly-acquired PlayStation 2 hacking monsters in dungeons
. I haven't played games in a while and this has been quite a release while doing loads of laundry. That's also why I haven't gotten the promised photo gallery online....OK, part of the reason, the other being that I go from dawn till dusk and when the kids go to bed I have avoided the computer in lieu of Stephen King
and the PlayStation
Kate's dog, Sir Barkley, has been a close pal of mine recently. Jade, my fat pooch, has seen fit to start getting into the trash. Guess she felt that someone needed to fill Wagner's shoes in his absence. Tomorrow brings Scarbutt, Fatso and Frisbee Girl (Declan, Astro and Misty) for a weekend stay. And I thought my bed was crowded already. Sigh. Scarbutt won't know what to do without his basement, but should he attempt to pilfer food from my kids, he will be right at home in another basement.

Why do I not see any updates from Mark Poo on the screen? And once again I ask your forgiveness in omitting you from today's epistle - it was a long one too! Bless KT for noticing! Later!

Alysha got herself a new game today. She had saved her allowance and when she saw it at Target
she just had
to have it. Well, I know I really was the one that paid for it, but if you view it that way my employer is paying for all my groceries. :) She's thrilled and if I let her she would play this thing into next week. Too bad there's that school thingy.

Forgot to ask - how do I get this onto my favorites list? Mom Unit, thanking you in advance.
It disappeared again! This is the third time so must also be the charm. Not to worry, I shall prevail. Sorry you didn't get Tuesday's mail, MarkPoo, but I inadvertently sent the letter, obviously without checking for ALL the intended recipients - please forgive! Let's see what happens this time - I'm so proud that I prevailed and accessed this BrogeNooz Site - exciting milestone for the oh-so-protected!

Ho, whatta surprise - and an honor. I was asked to join as a moderator to Woody's Lounge
, a website that I frequently visit and post answers to computer type questions. It's a wonderful online community where people help each other solve sticky computer problems - mostly Windows and Office, but the scope is larger than that. I must thank the crew at the Lounge for extending this invitation, which I am still a little shocked over. Cheers!
Received word this evening that the parents are now in Tucumcari, New Mexico - and that it's kinda cold out there. For all of you out there Joey's got his webcam now
and it will be going up shortly. Joey? Joey who? Why, none other than Joey Gomez
, whose contribution to this site was trashed by yours truly when I screwed around a little too much. Whoops. Crank out some content Joey G.....I need it!

Well, the parental units are off on a road-trip to sunny Arizona for three months of rest and relaxation. Wait a minute, they're retired, so what exactly is different other than the sand and cacti I'm not sure - but either way here's to a safe trip to them both, with all five animals, four tons of luggage, and a tank full of gas to go.

Happy freakin' new year everyone.....and to Michelle and Scott, a huge thank you for providing me with a place to kick up my heels, act stupid, and ring in 2002. Scott, I want your audio rig with the MP3 menu on the TV but my visuals are better
;-) Thanks to all for a wonderful time. And thanks to God that I made it home in one piece even if I passed Front Wheel Drive before I realized I was going to West Virginia (whoops wrong way). Cheers!!
