We Won! We Won! We Won! We hit the jackpot yet again. The Iowa Lottery sure has been good to us. This $3 will sure come in handy. like if we want a box of cereal we can almost pay for it.
For the last few weeks Maggie and Alisha have just been hanging out in the beautiful fall weather her in lovely Davenport. Many long walks at the local parks, lots of fetch and the occasional look form Maggie that says OK this was fun but lets go back to Seattle to see my new BF Babaloo. Maggie even hops in her dog Carrier and barks at me to pack her up and go. As much as she loves Justin and as harry as he is, he is still no dog best friend. Hopefully Maggie will get her fill of furry friend love when we come to Utah for our Thanksgiving visit. Yes you heard it right we are coming for Turkey Day!
Justin on the other hand, for the last few weeks has not done much in the way of hanging out or long walks in the park. When he is not hard at work ALL DAY and NIGHT he is at home watching Baseball. Maggie and myself even find ourselves watching Baseball when Justin isn't home yet just for the reminder of that one guy who sleeps here sometimes.

Caution not for children or sensative types - Leaving Jesusland - NOFX

Goodbye NorthWest Hello MidWest

Goodbye Seattle, goodbye Fall weather, goodbye great house on the lake, goodbye Fabulous Kitchen, goodbye Babaloo and Karmel.... Hello Laundry!
Well my trip home was a fine one. A few delays, but Maggie was a champ, yet again. I can take this dog anywhere. We left great Fall weather to arrive home at 10 o'clock at night to have 80 degree temps. and what I describe as 1000% humidity. Welcome home I guess. We are both so happy to be home. Yes that's right, I called Iowa home. What is the world coming too?

My Mom's Here

This was quite a sight a very full moon rising over Bellevue across the lake. Beautiful view from the front room of my Uncle's house. Hooray my Mom came to visit and entertain me the rest of my Seattle stay. We have had fun shopping (at Ikea, twice) and just hanging out.
Curtis invited me to a Baseball game with his Girlfriend Jessica and her boys Isiah and Joseph. They were good company at the game full of energy and really into the game (well most of the time) It was a great game the Mariners vs. Rangers. Entering the 9th inning it was all tied up 4 to 4. The Mariners in the bottom of the 9th, 2 outs and a great home run for the win. Very exciting. Sorry Justin no major league baseball for you this year unless we win the lottery and can afford Cubs tickets.
We had a great time, even though I embarrassed Curtis with my Utah sweatshirt and my lack of Buss smarts. My Mother didn't allow me to ride the bus until I was 17, so I'm slow to learn not to talk to the bus drunk. My mom and her new Seattle Do. I guess grunge is out and glam is in.
