Bringing Down the Cool Factor

When the kinfolk offer to keep the kids all night on a Friday night, what is a happening young couple to do? A little browsing the aisles of GFS? Perusing the clearance aisles at Marshall's? Hit their most favorite toy store (with no children in tow) to look for marked down educational toys?

Do we know how to paint the town red, or what?

The night was topped off by dinner at Carrabba's Italian Grill with an equally happening young couple, followed by a search for the perfect thermos, and pleasant conversation in the parking lot of Dick's Sporting Goods after we closed the joint down. There was, naturally, a group of teens with thumping music and scooters on the other side of the parking lot, but we way outlasted them.

Hen Update

She's still with us. We believe that she ate the egg because it was cracked. As far as we know, there have been no more eggs consumed by chickens.

I know, you hardened chicken people are laughing at us.

We do have two hens in solitary confinement because they won't stay out of the neighbor's yard. We instituted a "Two Strikes- You're Out" policy. The first time, their wings were marked with spray paint. The second time, they were placed in a cage. Now they are awaiting a new home with either Grandma or a friend.
