Word to the wise, or at least to the clumsy

If you are going to trip and fall and twist your ankle, it's probably best to avoid also slamming your neck onto a door's edge, especially with all your body weight behind it, I might add. Double the injury, quadruple the pain and then some. And not a pretty picture. Poor Michael witnessed it. Scared him, and that's not an easy thing to do.

I have a lovely swollen neck and a blue ankle. At least the red stripe along the neck is gone -- took all day for that to happen. I'm walking better today, woot.

The Giant and the Beanstalk

Today Logan has officially been declared taller than Michael by a fraction of an inch. He's 12. And Michael's around 5 feet, 10 inches. It's pretty close on the measuring, but Logan's eyes are clearly a bit higher. Logan's feet are certainly larger. But Michael will still win in grizzly bear holds and arm wrestling for a long time to come.

One night while resting in bed, I realized that something was amiss. I was not alone in my room -- I could feel it. Suddenly alert, my sharpened senses detected movement and discovered... White Ninja working his way stealthily toward me! Terrified, I quickly acted and grabbed the camera as my best defense.


White Ninja's presence brought out the ninja instinct in another, who quickly found his own subtle white disguise. He realized he had one flaw in his choice of outfits, however, and moved to fix it.

I do hope other white ninjas out there realize that if they are really trying to blend in against the wall, perhaps they should avoid dark underwear underneath their white disguise. And they probably should also avoid dirty sock hands.

Hello, instigator of trouble and giggles!

Enjoying snow in Dallas after Christmas -- a nice treat for our Austin crew, even if we were underdressed.
