Song in a Bag

Meredith was wandering around the house yesterday afternoon singing and carrying a sandwich sized ziplock bag. When I asked her what she was up to she replied she was saving music. She handed me the bag asked me to sing in it and zip it up quick. She did not want one note of Daddy's song to escape.
I am not sure what happened when she went to listen back to all the music she captured. I do know that she filled that bag with some beautiful music.

First Ride

I got out on the bicycle this morning and started to learn to ride again. It took five miles to figure out how to shift the gears. The shifters are built into the brake levers, what will they think of next? The tires on the machine are very narrow, if the rider were to swerve off the pavement and onto the soft shoulder there would be an accident. The bike is wobbly and does not like variations in the pavement.
I can tell that with more time spent on the bicycle the more comfortable I will become. I will be out there again tomorrow morning, becoming more familiar

Jesse Ventura!

Go get a SIRIUS satellite radio!

Howard Stern interviewed the former Governor and SEAL on his show this morning and I have to tell you, the man is riveting. Ventura that is.

His take on Government is spell binding. There is no other logical explanation than Jesse"s. He speaks with conviction from an informed point of view.

Today Howard asked question's of Mr Ventura that lead us down a fascinating path.

Jesse Ventura's conspiracy theories just might be true. He asks good questions "Why did the World Trade Center Towers fall at the speed of gravity? In his estimation, speaking from the point of view of one of the worlds best trained demolitions expert, the collapse should have experienced some friction. Slowing its decent. I can't argue the point, sounds plausible and I do not know the answer.

Mr. Ventura's story leads to antidotes ranging from secret summits of the top of the Republican Party in 19992 to a call for Solidarity amongst Pro Wrestlers in a failed uprising of Vince McMahon's WWF empire.

The former Governor speaks his truths passionately, his logic is sound and his message is scary. He is also selling a book. Don't Start The Revolution With Out Me! I am going to read it.

Not Good

Going on our seventh day with no tutuboutique emails. Everyday I inquire about the status and everyday they respond that they are working hard to resolve the problem. They must be getting frustrated by now, I know that I am. MOETOBIN AT AOL DOT COM

Heidi took this picture on the way home from Grampy's house.


It is the dawn of a new era in exercise, I had a second knee operation in April and during my follow up appointment I asked the surgeon when I could start jogging again, he said never, go buy a bike. I got one and plan on using it. I had a road bike in high school and really enjoyed the time I spent on it. I traded it in for a mountain bike when I went to college which I road a ton. After I got married the cycling stopped, now it is going to start back up. If you see a fat guy, in goofy pants, riding a red bike, please do not run me off the road.
