I just caught Jess on this website.

WHAT!?!?  The question is not "How to bathe a cat." but "Should I commit this most heinous of crimes against my fury roommate?"

I think we all know the answer to this...

Goodbye, Hello!

They left this morning in this...
Farewell dear Galant!

They came home in this...

They saw this along the way...

Picking out cars appears to be their Forte. (Kia Forte)

Fancy Grilled Cheese

Happy National Grilled Cheese Day!  Of course Jess was glad to here of this holiday and was a happy participant.  She has been drooling over this for several weeks and finally her complimentary hints paid off and she got an invite to the home of that very chef to partake.  From her subsequent ranting I think it lived up to expectations.  I got the real story from my insider gal pal, Gilly, who said she was embarrassingly licking her plate. (A habit suitable for felines, but unbecoming of humankind.)

Here are the leftovers Jess smuggled out in her purse.  I will agree they were quite tasty from what I could tell by licking off the foil.

Resurrection Day!

A little bit of candy...

A little bit of Jesus...

A little bit of family...
Egg hunting pro

A little bit of friends...
Nothing says Easter like hot dogs.

A rousing game of shoot the egg off the deck.

The peep jousting queen.
Four ingredients for a very good day!  
Happy Easter!

The View from my Window

Daron and Jess hit the lawn this weekend to whip it into shape for...the sake of not being a neighborhood embarrassment I guess.  The state of the yard is one of the main reasons I don't go outside and connect myself to the territory my humble hovel sits on.  It is hard to get the full effect of their labor without before photos, but those were too much of a disgrace to post.  Thanks to the folks for their help!

Let me take you for a tour...The yard at 314:

Step right out the front door...
