Blame it on Indiana Jones

Last Friday, Neldon and I went to see the new Indiana Jones movie. We decided to go see the matinee and save a few $$. We took Austin with us and Rhett went to the neighbors' house (we swap kids alot to make it easier to get things done (errands, grocery shopping, appts, etc.)) Just as I was walking out of the theater, I got a text. I opened it up and the caption said "CRAP!" This is what I saw.....

I busted up laughing! I called her back and this is what she said. "I left to go pick the girls (her daughter and Bekah) up from school and I left the boys (Rhett and her 2 little boys) home with Daisy (her 12 year old daughter). When I got back home, Rhett was crying and had a chunk of hair gone. He had found the clippers and said he needed a haircut." As a side note, the neighbor gives her boys frequent haircuts and she usually throws Rhett into the lineup. So, he knew what they were for. "Daisy said that by the time she got to him, the damage was already done." So, I borrowed her clippers to finish the job. It was all the way to the scalp so all we could do was buzz it completely. Here is the finished product....

And while we were at it, Austin needed a haircut too. He was getting a little shaggy around the ears so we took the #2 and buzzed him also. He was less than thrilled about it. Our neighbors probably wondered what was going on in our back yard with the kids screaming so much. So, now we have 2 little baldies. I can't believe how different Austin looks.

Debunking a Myth....

For many years, my wife has been misrepresenting me. Often, I have heard her tell friends in passing that I am not that handy around the house. With this entry, I will set the record straight.

In the past month, I have completed the following jobs around the house:

** Repaired a broken diswasher

** Fixed and sturdied up the kitchen cabinets

** Installed a gate to the backyard (with locks)

** Installed a Security Door in the front (again, with locks)

** Disassembled and fixed severly plugged sinks in the master bathroom.

Sooooooooooo, I am no longer the un-handyman, but instead I will only answer to .... "the fixer."

Here are a few photos:

So, one of our original posts was about Neldon and a buddy going to a Night Ranger concert and how it took them back in time. It was funny to watch the people in the audience be transported back to a day when they were younger (and not looking like 40 year olds thinking they were teenagers again.)

Well, yesterday New Kids On The Block performed together for the first time in 15 years on the Today show. I even set the Tivo so that I could watch. Neldon had to laugh at me when he came down the stairs and Hangin Tough was in the background and I was a little giddy. He was on his mission in Sweden during the biggest part of NKOTB so he missed out on a lot of the craze. Once again, the funny part was the crowd shots and the 28-35 year old women thinking and acting like they were teeny boppers again.

Oh the good ol'days-when posters hung on our closet doors and our jean jackets had a I "heart" Jordan pin.
