Spring Fever

Spring has practically sprung in The County. The weather is warming, the grass is greening, and the locals are bringing their boats out of winterization, getting prepped for that first day of fishing on Broken Bow Lake. And as we all know, you can't make a trip to the lake without stopping by Wal-Mart(s) to stock up on supplies...but it's always a hassle pulling a boat and trailer through a crowded parking lot..thankfully a friend of mine spotted a fellow Countian who has got this problem W-h-i-p-p-e-d!

And they say we're not forward thinkers down here in The County...special thanks to my friend and his handy cell phone camera...he's also responsible for the "Not for Hire" post..

The Little Things Give You Away

I have seen things (or perhaps I should say a thing) today that no girl should ever have to see. You would think that witnessing firsthand a case of Munchausen by proxy would be the most disturbing encounter of the day... alas, it was not. And the worst part of it...or possibly the best part  for any that I can't tell you about it. I would probably lose my job....or at least be highly criticized should my boss ever uncover my Lent challenge. So, I'll just keep it to me, you should be thanking me. 

And by the way Kari...if we can find a driver who'll keep a stick of deodorant at the ready as well as our car, cake, and champagne...our life will be complete.

Day Two of Bloggin for Lent Down!

Wednesday, February 25, 2009

Don't Give Up On Me Baby 40 days of bloggin'. That's the challenge that kari ( and i have taken on. Yes...leave it up to us, two non-catholics, to blog for lent. Normally you could argue that blogging isn't really giving up anything or making any sort of sacrifice, but I would counter with the fact that...Dude...I'm  from McCurtain County..there are like 5 Catholic people here...I think I'm definitely contributing...possibly just because I know that Lent and lint are two different things...and also because when I did run into one of those 5 Catholic's today I didn't stare at them and say "Hey! You got somethin' on your forehead...might wanna go warsh."

And I sooo have to admit that had Kari not twittered me (oh yeah, we're twittered up) and reminded me that I had 2.5 hours until the first day of Lent was over, then I would have completely forgotten and started tomorrow. But that's what friends are for! 

So here we go!
