Things are heating up!

Every dog must have his day, and mine is Friday...every Friday...all day long! 

Apparently I am living with vampires here as they try their best to block out the sun.
They cannot steal my sunshine though. I can absolutely read a calendar, and know that autumn is upon us, so why on earth does it feel like the dog days of summer? Maybe I should untangle myself and just close these curtains a little bit.

Really quick random

I just wanted to stop in quickly before I collect my big winnings...
 ...I am sure I am not too late, right? I can think of no more legitimate sweepstakes notification! Now don't you try to print out this "form" to fill in as your own. I will not forget any of you, and will continue to blog - perhaps on a better computer? Or maybe I will pay someone else to blog, better than I do, as my gift to all ten of you. However, for now, it's still just me! Do you see what I see?
This cloud made me laugh with its little eyes and great big lips! You know what else makes me happy? Inchworms!
But not when they are being dragged into a dark alley by a wasp!! I am off to try to figure out how I am going to ration these successfully until I get around to replenishing!

Not taking no for an answer

Apparently Foz never got the memo about my decision to go in another direction with my superhero sidekick search.
He does wear his blanket well as a cape, but I still have my doubts regarding his bravery for this role.

One of us thinks it's funny

Oh, hey, Foz! Do you like video games?

Is that a jab at my lack of thumbs?
No, I was just wondering if you'd ever heard of Space Invaders?

Random things*

*I started to agonize over a title, something that would bring the whole post together. I then realized I was not only procrastinating, but missing the whole point of random!

Nothing adds insult to injury during an 8:00 a.m. Walmart run quite like these creepy monkeys.

So if I told you we saw a HUGE spider out at camp on Labor Day, you might be left to wonder just how large that spider was, and in relation to what other spiders I have seen. Or maybe you might think I was procrastinating. Here, see for yourself! 

Let this serve as a warning to any other hornets planning to build their nests in our grill: we cook food on there, and that requires heat...heat that will scorch your wings and leave you wandering around complaining to each other.

Looking for a new hobby? Have you considered metal working?
 Really cool shapes, aren't they? This is a good thing since we now have matching shapes burnt into our kitchen floor!
I just regret that the medium we used was the pan I use EVERY night to make some part of dinner.

Super genes!

Much like how we recently figured out the possible roots of creepy monkey attraction, another mystery may have been solved. Have I been choosing capes, or have the capes been seeking me out? Were super things written in the genetic stars?

The evening at camp started no different than any others, or at least the same as every other bib wearing, lobster eating dinner does. I may have gently teased my mother for wearing her bib well past dishes being cleared, but could not deny that her shirt had stayed clean. However, the next time she walked out of the camp, I was taken aback...by what was on her back!
She kind of played it off like she had forgotten, and a breeze must have come up, but I have always known her to be super!
