No Need To Get Your Panties In A Wad

Last week I was so tired of seeing Don Imus' face plastered EVERYWHERE!

But then I got to thinking, "why is everyone so mad at this one man"

For years, "black" people have called "white" people names, from Cracker, Honkey, Whitey, Hicks, etc...But do you ever seen anyone being fired for that? Why is it okay for one race to call another names, but when the finger is pointed the other direction, it's "unexceptable."
African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, etc...can say whatever they want about "white" people, but the second that "white" people say something about another race, joking or not, everyone is automatically up in arms.
It's a double standard, and is ridiculous.

Am I saying it's okay to go around calling people names?

NO, Didn't you learn anything from your parents?

If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all


In the event that you aren't smart enough to keep your mouth shut,

then, BY LAW, have the right to say whatever you want.

(minus making bomb threats and so on....)

So, good for you Don Imus, good for you!

A Day At The Park

Yesterday I decided to help Jimmy, watch the kids for a while.
(Thanks to my job that lets me come and go as I please)

So off we went.....

Uncle Jimmy, Me, Ellerie, Gavin, and Garrett

Even with the 2 of us, it was a task.
Kudos to Dawn who does this everyday.

To our surprise, there was no fighting or crying....
except when Gavin got hit in the face by the Merry-Go-Round :(

However, I think Uncle Jimmy was ready for a drink after this!

We Heart Walks

Last week I was in Carter Lake, and decided that I would stop by Lem's Parents to take Jake Dawg on a walk.
Of course as soon as I got there, he knew what was going on.

After about 10 min of Paige looking for his choke chain (with out it, he takes YOU on a walk), we were ready to go.

So off we went, in search of anything he could pee on.
During the course of our walk, we passed many other dogs.
If you've ever been on a walk with us, you know that Jake starts wimpering like a BABY. He's usually way bigger than these dogs, that are in fenced in yards, but he's still a big baby about it.

By the time we got back, he was happy to be home.
