Saturday was the craziest day. It started in the morning with the premiere of the film Dialtone, which was done by a Christian film group in our area. After that we had a Christmas party at Fort Nisqually for the A/I's. For those of you who are not familiar with Fort Nisqually, it is a living history fort, and A/I stands for apprentice interpreter, which is a program for high schoolers who volunteer and re-enact. The party was fun, we danced, ate pizza, and talked. From Fort Nisqually we all went to Fort Steilacoom who was having their candlelight Christmas tour. It was sweet! Everyone knew how to dance, so we didn't have to waste time learning the dances.
On Sunday we had our Christmas party. After our church services we had a banquet of prime rib and turkey with all the trimmings. During the meal we had a program for families to show their talents. Once we had everything cleaned up, we started dancing. The party was supposed to go until 6:00, but it started snowing pretty hard and everyone left around 4:00. It usually takes us about half an hour to get home, but to due to ice and traffic it took us a whole hour.

I understand that people have done their research and came to the conclusion that Obama was the candidate capable of taking the country in a direction they agreed with. I respect their opinion and am content as long as they did their research. Though I disagree with that decision, I am thankful that I have the freedom to disagree. I am afraid though, that the media is censoring the truth. As my father says, "the fourth estate has become a fifth column." This means that the news media is working behind the scenes to destabilize our government and promote a socialist agenda.
It is time America moved on, quit reveling in the election of the blank screen, and fight for our freedoms! I for one shall pray for our leadership and trust in the sovereignty of God, knowing that He knows the outcome.

To tell everyone the truth, in my neighborhood tagging is illegal.
Anyway... On with the randomness.
1. On occasion, I refer to myself in my mind as a SPEND. SPEND stands for Self Proclaimed, Eccentric, Nerd. I add the D so the acronym sounds cool.
2. I've lived in America all my life.
3. I am not technologically Savvy.
4. I prefer dressing in the 1930's-40's style but have been forced to modernize.
5. I don't shower every day.
6. I only have 24 teeth in my mouth.
I am supposed to tag 6 more people, but I say, why limit? Whoever reads this and has a blog, should tag all their friends.*
I hope you learned something new about me!
* If you have already done the whole tag thing, you are exempt from having to do it again.

No, no, stop the insanity!!!!!!! I can't take it anymore.
David, straightening his crooked posts
On our second day of work the posts were secured in their correct positions. You can bet that we were extra careful in our measuring, digging and cementing.
Carefully measuring the corner post
Yours truly doing what he does best--mixing cement
Securing the posts so they will dry in the correct position
This picture doesn't need a caption, it speaks for itself. Look at how the shovel lays in the wheelbarrow and how the greenery all around acts as a frame. Notice how everything looks drab until David's pants gives it this look of life and activity.
If you have observed, Sarah always seem to take a stab at me with every post she makes. I have decided to do the same with this blog. Although, I will be using pictures of David. Here is the first.
After a full day of work I decided I should take a break and actually break a sweat
Poor mans security system installation instructions.
1. Go to the Goodwill Store and buy a pair of men's work boots, size 14-16 (well used).
2. Place them on the front porch along with a copy of Gun and Ammo magazine.
3. Put a couple of BIG dog dishes next to the boots and magazine.
4. Leave a note on your door that reads: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Big Jim, Duke, Slim and Me gone for more ammo. We'll get back in about 1 hour. Don't mess with the pit bulls --- they got after the mailman this morning and messed him up real bad. I don't think Killer took part in it, but it was hard to tell from all the blood. Anyway, I locked all the dogs in the house. Better just wait outside till we get back.
