Row Row Row Your Boat

What an awesome Lego set. 

Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream. 

Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but a dream.

Yarrr! Can definitely do without the pirate.

Throw him overboard, Arg! 😉

I’m Sure You Did

So I thought this was pretty funny at the pool this week. 

I am about to get into the swimming pool. 

A water aerobics class is letting out and a bunch of older ladies are on the way out of the water. 

One of them stops, give me a big smirk, and says:

“Don’t worry we warmed it up for you!”

I thought for quick second, and said with a completely straight face:

“I’m sure you did!”

The joys of swimming life.  😉

Have You Been?

Why is Hawaii one of those places where people always go:

Have you been?

They don’t even say the words “to Hawaii”.

Like Hawaii is just one of those places where you’re supposed to read people’s minds. 

Have you been?

Umm, let me think a moment. 

And before you even get a chance to respond further, the other person goes:

Oh, well let me tell you about the time we were in Hawaii and…

Of course, nothing much ever really seems to come after that except something about the wonderful beaches!

Like there aren’t nice, exotic beaches anywhere else.

Frankly, it’s a little remote anyway, no?

The other thing about Hawaii, of course, is if one of the volcanos starts smoking its angry stack! 

Better start playing that little guitar Hula dancer! 😉

Garden of 5 Senses

Garden of Five Senses in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. 


I hear it and I see it, but I can barely believe it.  


I can touch it, and I can even taste it, but that’s going too far. 


I can smell it, but in a good way. 😉
