First Time Ever

Hi Everyone:  This is what happens when I have too much time on my hands - you guessed it, John aka Dad is out of town... again - and I start looking through old photos (of myself) on the computer for my profile.  Michael took some fine pictures of me, but we'll have to get Photoshop before I'll put them online as they are very, well, real-looking (accurate).  The picture, which as you see, I have selected has me tastefully in the background, somewhat hidden behind my two wonderful son-in-laws (with the added bonus of  devil horns appearing over Darin(not to insinuate in anyway that he is a devil (he has teased me mercilously for 8 years now (you may draw your own conclusions))).  By the way, the first photo is supposed to go on my profile as I believe the current profile photo, while being very cute, is somewhat misleading.  I'm pretty sure they hadn't invented computers when that picture was taken of me. (Right...... that's the misleading part:-)  
After the big Cold Play concert last night, Andy, Brian and Hannah spent the night here.  While poor Brian had to go to work, Andrea stayed on to help me set up this blog.   We stayed in our PJs until 2 this afternoon, and munched on pancakes and IKEA  jam, the only edible things in the house if you don't count Heike, the dog. Ha, another day goes by and I don't have to go to the grocery store... Good thing Michael works at Sonic!  After a quick swim (bath) in the pool, Kristin and I drove Andy and Hannah home, after which we stopped by IKEA to replenish the jam supply.  Would you count IKEA as a grocery store?
