I can't just sit. My Mom always said I had ants in my pants. Nope, checked. Just a restless soul draggin' a body around, I guess.

Besides, most of the games are played in the eastern or central time zone. I'm usually working on supper for us then, so Tom Hamilton (the main play-by-play guy) keeps me company while I chop and saute. He's more conversational than my very quiet Himself anyway.

speaking about stray thoughts........if I could put in a second bird fountain I would........we have so many migratory birds coming through Oman and it's hot as Hades.......we have had so many visit to ours and it's so enjoyable to watch them bathe, wriggle, and wriggle through the water......you can tell that they are in haven..........I consider this a gift to just watch their joy.........

You are so right. I remember my father had to have absolute quiet when he was listening to a ball game or a boxing match.

Beagle loves her Iams Lamb and Rice dry dog food. I don't think I could eat that stuff.

So have you guys ever wondered if clouds look down on us and say, "Look! That one is shaped like a hurricane!"?

And what is the plural of Prius anyway? If you see two of them together, do you refer to them as Prii?

Ack! Random clowns are wandering around north of us. Nothing scares me more than random clowns! I've always been afraid of clowns, but seeing Steven King's "It" clinched it. I'll take a bear, lion, baraccuda, shark, or honey badger over any clown!

I like the one in North Carolina where a guy with a machete chased after a clown. Bet that clown won't be hanging around trying to scare people anymore. Being chased by a machete wielding person would be a rather permanent cure for that activity.

I am sharpening my machete as we speak. I'm also sleeping with my hedge pruners and my snippers. And my baseball bat. I'll dig out my pellet gun too.
