A birthday spent in the mouth of a frog

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday

By the end of the day, how many times had my children gone down that slide? I’d estimate about fifty million.

    Only 50 million?

    I think those plaid swim trunks are outta this world!

    Thanks, FreeFromItAll. πŸ˜› They turned out to be a good choice because they slowed him down on the slide. They are just cotton shorts, so they weren’t slippery enough for him to slide down at a dangerous speed.

    Oh, how cute!!! Loved it! My gosh we are in snowland here with more snow falling today…can’t imagine a swimsuit

    Your kids are adorable!

    Can’t imagine it here either. That water would look like an ice skating rink.

    The rocks are painted plaster and the plants are silk and plastic. It’s an indoor pool! πŸ™‚

    Hey FW (a.k.a. Tiltingwindmills),

    I updated my swine post to include Linn Cohen-Cole’s letter to Hillary. Thanks for turning me onto that tidbit, it will come in handy in the months to come. Opposition research data carries far more credibility if it is generated by a Liberal fellow-traveler.

    The Corpo-crats and their government stooges better hurry up and pass the “Net Neutrality Act” because information is flowing like Niagara falls and the risk of wholesale exposure is mounting everyday.

    Keep fighting the good fight. True soldiers must unite. Ben Franklin flew a kite.

    Ok – as I stare out my window at the frigid cold and snow squalls, I am officially jealous of your kids in their swim suits.

    Oh yeah – and I tagged you for the Favorite posts meme….get on it!

    I posted the letter to Hillary too. Thanks for sharing that link. Very informative and information that needs to get out.

    Adorable photos of the kids. Enjoy them, they grow up too fast!

    You know, Johnny, I think you are right about that letter. It seems credible, and is written in a tone that really appeals to me (and hopefully others). Thanks for putting it in your blog post. And thanks for the little poem there at the end of your comment. Did you come up with that?

    Mindi, it’s an indoor pool! Thanks for the tag. I may have to wait a while and post some more original thoughts since I just did that meme last week, though.

    Thanks for posting Linn Cohen-Cole’s letter on your blog, Angie. You are right about our kids growing up amazingly fast. We try to capture a little of their spirit and their capabilities in these photos, but they often out-pace us.

    Yeah FW, the poem was something I have been working on and off since ’98. I like the triplet rhyme structure, it is very triangular. I got more, but I only publish them when I am feeling really inspired.

    Anyways, dig, I need to know a good authority, organization, or group that “independently” reviews organic foodstuffs. I have to know what I am buying is legit and not a corporate subsidiary product-jammer that masquerades as organic to dupe the sheeple. I figured you could point me in the right direction.

    LOL! Okay, your explanation is even funnier than the poem itself.

    No, I don’t know anything about organic food. I am just now starting to be more cautious. Talk to Cheese Slave about it. πŸ™‚ And buy from your town’s farmers’ market in the spring and summer.
