Here is a picture I nabbed from Ed Tritschlers blog. Last month we made our way to Camp Neotez. This is one beauty of a place, which I am sure we will be seeing plenty of in the coming years.

Ed, hopefully I haven't broken any copyright laws. I'll be glad to pay a royalty fee.

This has been a busy few weeks. Last weekend we left for NYC (sans kid) for a few days of R & R. We saw them do the Today show on Friday, went to Little Italy (which lives up to the name--it's only 3 blocks long or so) for lunch, and had some great Mexican food that evening. It seems that Chinatown has almost overtaken Little Italy. As one friend from the area put it: The Chineese love to work, and the Italians like to sit around and drink wine.

All, have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Email from Marsha in CO

The Maker of all human beings is recalling all units manufactured, regardless of make or year, due to a serious defect in the primary and central component of the heart.
This is due to a malfunction in the original prototype units code named Adam and Eve, resulting in the reproduction of the same defect in all subsequent units.
This defect has been technically termed "Subsequential Internal Non-Morality," or more commonly known as S.I.N., as it is primarily expressed.
Some other symptoms include:
1. Loss of direction
2. Foul vocal emissions
3. Amnesia of origin
4. Lack of peace and joy
5. Selfish or violent behavior
6. Depression or confusion in the mental component
7. Fearfulness
8. Idolatry
9. Rebellion

The Manufacturer, who is neither liable nor at fault for this defect, is providing factory-authorized repair and service free of charge to correct this SIN defect. The Repair Technician, Jesus, has most generously offered to bear the entire burden of the staggering cost of these repairs. There is no additional fee required.
The number to call for repair in all areas is: P-R-A-Y-E-R
Once connected, please upload your burden of SIN through the REPENTANCE procedure. Next, download ATONEMENT from the Repair Technician, Jesus, into the heart component. No matter how big or small the SIN defect is,
Jesus will replace it with:
1. Love
2. Joy
3. Peace
4. Patience
5. Kindness
6. Goodness
7. Faithfulness
8. Gentleness
9. Self control

Please see the operating manual, the B.I.B.L.E. (Believers' Instructions Before Leaving Earth) for further details on the use of these fixes.

WARNING: Continuing to operate the human being unit without correction voids any manufacturer warranties, exposing the unit to dangers and problems too numerous to list and will result in the human unit being permanently impounded.

For free emergency service, call on Jesus.

DANGER: The human being units not responding to this recall action will have to be scrapped in the furnace. The SIN defect will not be permitted to enter Heaven so as to prevent contamination of that facility. Thank you for your attention!


Please assist where possible by notifying others of this important recall notice, and you may contact the Father any time by "kneemail."

Here is a pic of Benny and his friend Julia (neighbors granddaughter). We pulled them in our wagon 2 times around the block -of course they loved going fast on the downhill section.

I'm taking a sick day today, and working from home. I just finished some bookwork for the accountant, and wanted to post a few pics of Benny. One is him rocking out to Jimmy Buffett's version of Uncle Johns Band (although I have to turn down the cuss word each time). The other is of him sitting at the kids clothing store in downtown Kirkwood. We are missing one of his red shoes-If you can find it, there will be a nice finders fee. Kids shoes aren't cheap!

What a beautiful day.

The good news: It's 74 degrees.
The bad news: Well, it feels like 73 degrees with the wind chill factor.

Am I dreaming, or is this November? It's one of those days that makes me feel like putting on Jimmy Buffett, which is what I'm going to do. Don't worry, Benny is fast becoming a JB fan.

Jackpot! Our videocamera has photo capability, and for the past several months we have been taking pictures. I didn't realize until last night we could easily download the pics on the computer.

Here are some legit pictures of Jason and Amanda. We are soooo excited about their little girl, and can't wait to hop a plane to see Emily. If you would like to keep up with what's happening, click on "The Carters" to the right. Feel free to email her if there are spelling, grammatical, or general English errors in her posts. She would appreciate it.

...and then there were 4

We have some great friends from out of state that just received their referral for Emily, who for now resides in the Jiangxi province in China (I think). To celebrate, I wanted to post some very flattering pictures of the new parents. These were taken in Virginia last Thanksgiving.

Emily is their first daughter. Jason and Amanda's first kid is Charley, their extremely loyal and spoiled pooch. For you Colorado folks that don't have their blog address, give me a shout and I'll forward it. Amanda, let me know if I can publish a link to your blog.
