Apathy on the Rise; No one cares!

LOL, I was watching some old Buffy episodes and this was the headline on one of the school newspapers. I thought it was a pretty good title.

We had no trick or treaters last night. We live on post. People DRIVE ON POST to let their kids trick or treat (less walking between houses than off post). And yet... no kids came down to our house. I have a lot of candy left over.

Our house is situated at the end of a dead end street. These are duplexes and most of the ones down at our end are empty. But I think the biggest reason we didn't have kids is because the neighbors at the front end of the block had a big display and all the various folks up there set up a long table with bowls of candy up and down it. In other words.. the four or five families living up at the front of the street did their candy "block party" style and didn't bother to let us know that this is how they were gonna do it.

This is not a big deal other than I have all this candy left. I'm sending it up to the high school with Kim and Mac on Monday so that they can get rid of it.

Today we are heading to the annual Chili cook off here on post. There is a 5K at 8:30 (we're not going for this) and the chili tasting starts at 11:30 am (we do intend to be available for that). Kendra and her boyfriend Tyler are coming down from the college to taste with us. And we're bowling in the afternoon. Should be fun.

more animals

This little pic made me laugh out loud. I swear this could be Mac and Kendra on some of their more beastly days.

I will say that their relationship has improved greatly since Kendra moved out of the house. Now when she is home, they talk, laugh and play wii games together... it's been a nice improvement.

HA! I did it!

I have been procrastinating about moving my journal from AOL to here. Not that I didn't want to... just that I was nervous that things would get messed up along the way. And some things did (I noticed the comic strip from FBorFW was truncated), but other than that the move went smoothly.

I have placed it under Lasttime-atbatarchives. Of course I can't remember the http to get there. But I am sure it's listed on my profile page.
