11.30.13 big boy's birthday party

Troy turned 40 and invited his friends to his country homes to shoot guns (real ones and paintball guns), eat cupcakes and sandwiches. I had a fun time even though I don't shoot guns but I do shoot pictures.

11.29.13 Boots

He's a sweet boy.

11.26.13 fresh turkey

Made a trip to Yoder to snag a fresh turkey from our favorite Mennonites. The turkey at far right is Robin who was born on Thanksgiving day. She has a fondness for all things turkey including plush foul hats.

11.25.13 what a turkey

Wichita Firefighters tried unsuccessfully for an hour to set a fire while giving a demonstration on how not to fry a turkey. Doh!

11.23.13 Grandpa and Taco

He's a sweet and spoiled dog.

11.21.13 Oops!

The kitties woke me up at 4:45 so I fed them and plopped on the couch to snuggle with them. I turned CNN on and watched a story out of Wichita. Snuggle time was over and I headed to Jabara.

11.19.13 my shadow

Went to lunch with my friend Marion who is visiting from Minnesota. I was driving her back when I got a call from the boss telling me he had a breaking news assignment for me to tackle. Marion was excited to be tagging along and then we arrived. The big news was this.

11.17.13 volunteer appreciation brunch

Robin threw an amazing celebration for all the people who help her throughout the year. We all do work that fits us. My hands rarely get dirty like the majority of Soil Sisters. My work is of the multimedia variety.

11.16.13 Shalom in the home

Yes, they can get along. The bad news is that the kittens will be with us for just a few more days. The good news is that they are being adopted together by a friend.

11.13.13 WichitAWESOME!

I had a sneaky suspicion that our houseguest would think this shirt was awesome and I was right. She's in town from Vermont working on her music with CRG. Can't wait for her to return.

11.11.13 Irene and Bob Rogers

I love running into these two all over town. They are the most active retirees I've ever met. They volunteer everywhere and are just all over the place. Bob is a WWII vet who was wounded in Normandy. He's been instrumental in getting the new WWII Memorial put in at Veteran's Park. I was so glad to see them both on Veteran's Day.

Both Lexi and I were real award weiners today. She won the Leader of the Pride award for the fourth consecutive year and I won the AP Photo of the Year award for Kansas for the first time.

11.04.13 more kittehs

Picked up two sweet identical (except one is a boy and the other a girl) gray kittens. They are sweethearts. We'll have them for about two weeks until they're ready for their surgeries.
