When we got home we found a package from Candie Cooper. She came home for a short visit from China and brought a special surprise for us. It's cricket cage. I've wanted one for a long time and it was so kind of her to send it to me.
The new Buzz figure seems a little leery though.
Later that afternoon H flew over the house. Can you see him just over the tree in the center? We happen to be in a flight path. Yeah us. Seeing a CH-47 coming at you is an impressive sight.
- Sunday we decided to venture out to a county fair. Not our county fair but an adjacent county fair. I needed to clarify that because, wow-za boy, did we stick out like sore thumbs. Holy cow. We might as well have had a cartoon pointy sign that said "Urbanite" over our heads. I was the only woman in a skirt. We pushed a our yuppified all-terrain jogging stroller with our, gasp, Asian child.
It was also the very last day of the fair so I think most people there had had enough already. It was pretty void of people. We stayed approximately 20 whole minutes.
- For 5 years I've lived with 4 channels that I could only view 2 of in
the front room and the other 2 in the back family room. If we
wanted to watch channel 6 we had to do all sorts of acrobatics with
foil sculptures. This morning we had cable installed. I now have 100+ channels to choose from. I get overwhelmed deciding which shampoo I
should buy. This? Well, I don't even know where to begin. Sadly, I think my Saturday night dates with Lawrence Welk are over.
This reminds me of when I had my first apartment. I lived for 2 years
without a tv at all. One day my Dad surprised me with a TV and VCR. That
weekend I watched 8 movies consecutively. (I lived in a apartment
right next to the library which had an awesome video collection.) I
didn't leave my apartment for 3 days.
