Barktoberfest - The Recap

I woke up early today to the sound of rain but was determined to walk rain or shine! We got some delicious Wegman's coffee, I had Amaretto and Chris had Hazelnut. Honeynut Cheerios for breakfast and then waited for Jason & Kate. Once they arrived "Kribbit's Kritters" were on their way to Lollypop Farm. The place was packed but parking and registration were fairly easy. Thanks to all our friends and family that donated, our team raised $450 for the cause! We had a great time walking through the park, the woods and parts of Lollypop Farm where we also got to observe many of the Farm Animals there. The rain held out and the overcast conditions made it perfect for a fall walk!

Barktoberfest is almost here

Barktoberfest is almost here! To celebrate, I have created a puzzle with the names of all our pets (at least the ones that we could remember), growing up as well as today. Click on the puzzle for a larger version. If you haven't already, sponsor our team! Click one of these two links and then click Sponsor Me. Even just 5 bucks would be cool.

A Poem for Dress Shirt Guy

Hello, Dress Shirt Guy.
I see you on my way to work,
running in your dress shirt,
just past the corn field by the road.

Why must you be so proper?
Did they make fun of you as a child?
Do you have a ghastly scar?
Are there not T-shirts your size?

Where could you be going?
Are you on your way to work,
an important meeting,
a job interview?

Why must exercise be so formal?
Don't you have a jogging suit?
a tank top,
a sweatshirt?

Or are you fooling someone?
pretending to dress for work
walking out the door with your brief case,
throwing it in the woods as you begin to jog?

Does your wife know you jog in your dress shirt?
Are you fooling your children,
your grandchildren,
perhaps the family dog?

Are you happy, dress shirt guy?
Running in your Ralph Lauren,
or perhaps Cardin or Old Navy?

Run along, old dress shirt guy
I'll watch you from my car,
and wonder every day
if I should try it, too.

Plastic recycling

I have always wondered what these numbers meant. Now I know:
