No, the video below is not an expression of Stacey & my medieval child-discipline strategies.

Happy Halloween.

I've been number-watching as the views of the most-played episode of Bridge Talk approaches 2000. But It's been awhile since I checked in on poor old Orvil.

So you can imagine my suprise when I checked the YouTube account I keep him locked up in and found that his halloween clip from last year is now approaching 10,000 views! Being a shameless cross-fertilizer, I changed the text that goes with the clip to mention the site.

Uh, I suppose I should write something Orvilesque here. ... "Yo ugly Americans. Prepare to gum-gnash yo' pumpkin pie all you want; But come yankie-thanky day, I'll be eating pilgrim-pie. (How do you cook a pilgrim, anyway?)"

Here's the clip:

Kaylee just came up to me and said, "I've got too much beer in my mouth from God." And then she walked away.


So far at preschool Kaylee & Emily have been mostly hanging out with two other little girls: named Kali and Emily! (and Emily has an older sister named Kaylee).

Then, at breakfast today, Kaylee began to tell me about her new friend, "Brandon," whom she wants to play soccer with.

Then Emily sat at the table singing dreamily, "Oh, Brandon ... Oh wonderful Brandon."

And so it begins.

In other news, I'm considering beginning to process of acquiring a gun permit and building a front porch. Can anyone recommend any 'Angry Hillbilly" courses to me? I've only got 10 years left to perfect my grouchy, protective dad routine, and the girls are already knee deep in teenager practice.

Quotable Kensington

Alexander, a guy I was talking to down at the Roasterie and then again later at The House tossed out the following in our conversation:

"Religion is for people who don't want to go to hell. Spirituality is for people who've already been there."

Re-Posting is For Blogslackers

I'm re-posting this video because it seems like the girls have grown so much since I originally posted this clip. Plus it's a quick way to post something since I'm busy, I want to keep a valid blog presence going, but it's been two weeks since I touched this site.
