Opposable Thumbs

Remy didn't pack a single thing for the trip to Texas. I told her we were leaving in the morning but she didn't seem to care. There was an excuse about not having opposable thumbs, but I think that's pretty lame. I mean, I hate to pack and I did it anyway.

We just went outside before turning in for the night. Something in the darkness scared the bajeezus out of both of us. I'm not really sure what it was, but I'm telling myself it was a raccoon that scampered back off into the woods when it saw us. Whatever it was, it was pretty creepy. I need a good flashlight, me thinks. Not just for me, but for crime scenes as well. So, if you're in the market for a Christmas gift... I want a really good rechargable flashlight.

Anyway, after being scared by the "raccoon", Remy had a hard time focusing on why she was outside in the first place. So, don't be surprised if we get mauled by a raccoon someday. Or... you know... whatever the heck it was out there lurking in the dark - opposable thumbs or not.

End Blog.

You have to be careful about asking too many people for the same gift. You may end up with twelve flashlights. It happened to us - we got two salad spinners. Want one for Christmas? Oh wait, you don't eat.

One can never have too many flashlights though, right?

True, but are you sure you don't want the extra salad spinner? We could sent it home with your Dad.
