Nice Fall Weekend

Booboo and Crewcraw did a few hours of playing with the GGs Saturday morning while the parents painted the laundry room. We picked them up for breakfast and they chowed down on some French toast. Then we went to the park where we played until the GGs got grumpy. A little Bug Juice (for those without kids, that is a new store-bought juice with a sippy-cup type lid) was in order. They both swilled their Bug Juice down in record time. We took them home for lunch and a nap. The laundry room was painted my favorite shade of green – bright! Then Booboo and Crewcraw went home and took a long nap themselves.

Jesse went to Norman this weekend for sailing lessons. Yep, it is the same guy that she called back in May before going to Hawaii – the one who asked if she were old enough to take sailing lessons, and asked where her father was as if she were a little girl. Then he was rude to her when she pointed out that the dates for the sailing class on his website and the dates he told her over the phone were different. I think the man finally figured out that she was 26 and not some little kid and that she was correct about the dates and was nicer to her. Or maybe she just really wanted to take sailing lessons and the choices of teachers in Oklahoma are few and far between. I’m sure she will post pics soon on Skybag. She does have some lovely pics of GBN2 right now.

Last night we went to see an "Evening of Shorts" put on by the Duncan Little Theater. Jan and Des, who work with Jesse, were both in several of the one act plays. Last year the Shorts were great fun. This year, well, not so funny. Jan and Des both did a great job, but some of the plays were just not funny. TFNP was there with his Royals and that made the play much more fun. His PN2, whom Jay calls his "future district attorney" can ask a jillion questions, and did so. It went something like this, "Mama Lou, why did that lady yell?" It was difficult to explain why the crowd laughed when the play was really not that funny. Although Toby had been willing to go to the play, I hate it when I drag him to something "artsy" and it turns out badly. It makes it tough to convince him to attend the next artsy thing.

It is off to church this morning – hopefully I will get to "wrastle" some GGs and Royals.

Have they come out with a drink that actually has the brand name of Bug Juice? Funny. We've called any Kool-Aid type drink that for years--at least 20. Now, someone has finally decided to market it.

Well... not your fault, but I hear ya... as a "used ta be" drag-ee. And I never, ever let my drag-er live it down when something... anything... didn't pan out. Coz that's part of the game, nu? Of course, I never refused future drags, either... that being part of the game, too.

"Bug Juice?" Really? I wouldn't buy it, solely on philosophical grounds... as in rewarding obnoxious marketing behavior. That's just the Ol' Fart in me, I suppose. ;-)

Buck, it is all part of the game, and Toby plays well.

Bug Juice is a marketing scheme, but if you have little kids...

Bug juice IS kool-aid just with more high fructose corn syrup.
