Seriously?....

This is a prototype for a street-legal flying car. Seriously? When driving, the wings fold up! And it's supposedly only going to be like $60K when it's fully completed. Seriously?

older kittens...

Ok, the kittens are ABOUT 4 weeks old I believe. This one here is the one we call Spot. I think she's the runt; her eyes aren't quite right and her ears are a little more on the side of her head rather than the top. Poor thing. She cries like crazy all the time...regardless of whether she's being held or not.



Mau feels the need to SIT, ON my back any time I bend over or sit down. She will sit there insisting I pet her by pawing at me (in the same fashion a dog would). As I pet her, over my head mind you; she kneads her paws, claws out, into my HEAD!






Are they not just adorable? Chicken is on the left, Spot in the middle and Boy on the right.




Holy Hundy!

So, I find these huge worms curled up in a sort of spiral circle, kinda like a lollipop. They are ginormous centipedes and I have NEVER seen one alive. Today, I go into my laundry room to get some water out of the sink to give Mau, and if there isn't one crawling around in the sink! It was sooooo gross!

First kill...

Trey went hunting on Friday morning and shot what he thought was a doe, but ended up being a 2.5 year old button buck. Weird. Sunday we went together and I shot a spike. He was at roughly 14 yards, I was up 30 feet in a tree stand and I double-lunged him with my bow. Trey videoed it, but it saved to my iTunes somehow and I can't figure out how to upload it on here.




Zoe

Trey and I were watching TV tonight and Zoe started repeatedly humping her pillow. It's quite comical and we happened to get a video of it...Enjoy!

LASIK

Ok, so now that I have finally been at Mann Eye Institute for a full year, Trey and I were able to get our Lasik for a great price :) We had the surgery on October 19, 2009 and both are doing great. It's incredible to be able to get up in the middle of the night and SEE the clock without putting it in my face! And even better, we don't have to wear the silly shields to sleep in anymore!

Dr. Stern, our new MD did both mine and Trey's surgery, it took about 15 mins each for the actual surgery. The testing and prepping took more time than the surgery!

Here are some Lasik pictures...


This was at the very end after the surgery...Dr. Stern was checking to make sure everything went smoothly and the flaps are back in the right place and "sticking".
I can't figure out how to get these in the right order, but this is after my flaps were created and I'm heading to the laser for the correction.
Here we are getting prepped; Trey went first. Don't we look silly?









Kittens....



So our cat, Mau, whom we thought was not quite old enough to be spayed sure enough got pregnant. She had 4 little ones, 2 boys and 2 girls. I have decided that I'd like to keep one of the girls, and she shall be called Chicken. I have named her "twin" Boy. He likes it. This is my favorite picture of them. Mau is being very protective.




They were born, I belive Sept. 29th...these are some pictures from soon after that day. I'll post some recent ones of them soon. They are crawling all over the place, attempting to (sometimes succesfully) climb out of their box.




Let's see if I can manage this...

I'm very new to this, but I'm gonna give it a try. I figure now is as good a time as any with it being hunting season and then the holidays just around the corner.
