Random Thoughts

This morning after Michael left for work the boy started responding to everything I said with, "co ten tack oh no chi wa." I have put a lot of thought into it and believe he is trying to say, "guten tag , konnichi wa." Why? I have no idea.

I have two bits of very sad news to report.

Bit number 1: Jason's Deli no longer carries Dublin Dr Pepper. Apparently carrying Dublin Dr Pepper broke the contract they had with Coke. This make no sense to me. I thought Dr Pepper was its own thing and not a Coke or Pepsi product. I have also been told that Dr Pepper is now a part of Pepsi. Either way I'm confused. I realize that being a Dr Pepper enthusiast I should know these things, but I don't study its history, I just drink it.

Bit number 2: A very large quail flew into my kitchen window and died the other day. It was very sad and I feel responsible. Jessie and I took the curtains down when we painted. I haven't put them back up yet because I want to spray paint the rod black before I put them back up-- which I haven't done yet. I do realize we are talking about a bird who prefers walking to flying even though God gave it wings. But don't you just love seeing the baby quail crossing the street all in a row like little ducks?

Lastly, my progress on the sweater I'm making. Someone asked me the other day when I was going to start knitting real things, not just baby clothes. I've been thinking more and more about it. It's probably time. I'll add something to the queue.

I have had to chase birds out of my wood burning stove in my present house and out of my fireplace in my old house. I thought that was traumatizing but a dead one would be a sad thing indeed. Sorry about that AND especially the Dr. Pepper thing.

Sorry to hear about the Dr. Pepper. One more broken dream...

Well it seems painting the curtain rod black is even more appropriate now.

You should immediately take the time to teach Brig to say "anyoung hashim neekah."

I think brig was paying respect to his aunt who was in Germany at a Korean wedding
