Train Madness

Train Madness

Ok. So maybe we (read I) went a little crazy with a train set for Vv for Christmas. I went to We B Toys and Shit several times and just couldn't bring myself to buy one of these Geotrax sets for Vv until we were at Fred Meyer one day and she shouted out "Train, Daddy! Train, train," referring to one of the lighted roof-top type flashing light train cut-outs. Ok, maybe a train set isn't a bad idea for a girl after all. Then, middle sis-in-law Bobbie told Jamie how much fun her boys have with their set and the deal was sealed.

Sure enough, come Christmas morning all of us were gathered round the train track makin' it go (and with the three trains and controllers there were enough for everybody to eventually get a turn).

All of the girls (I'm talkin' 'bout the big ones, Willis) even got into the act by the end of the day.

So, today, sometime before noon, I get a nearly frantic phone call from Jamie asking me to get more track. The (big) girls can't figure out how we had it layed out and neither Matt nor I were at home. (heavy sigh) I didn't "rush right home" and solve the problem but I did add a fews more pieces fresh from the store on my way home.

These are the Creatures in Your Neighborhood...

Neighborhood Moose

I like moose. Maybe it was too many hours of Rocky and Bulwinkle as a kid, but I have always been enamoured with moose. Clowns, on the other hand, bother me. Jamie got me a clown for my 36th birthday. I made it through 35 birthdays without a clown (that I can remember) and my wife who supposedly loves and supports me FREAKIN' CLOWNED ME!!! That was almost two years ago and I'm still bugged, but I digress. "Can't sleep; clowns will eat me" is one of my favorite bumpers stiker / t-shirt slogans. I adapted it to this photo with a similar sentiment.

Last night the big guy at the top got the pumpkins. Does that mean I'm next? That the clowns are on their way?

Jamie loves me. Either Jamie loves me or Jamie wants out of our marriage by tricking me into spending countless more hours on the internet because she upgraded me to a Flickr Pro account for MY PHOTOS. I'm excited.
