Rainy Day at TT

The stormy weather stopped us from committing to a lengthy drive only to be stuck in swimmingless waters, so instead we went to Tommy Thompson park (it’s only open fully on the weekends) and walked most of its length. Nefarious and Caitlin were on snail rescue duty, moving them off the path, where many had been crushed by uncareful stompmasters, and into the bushes — not that they could keep up with the multitudes of them that littered the road. I always enjoy going there, but the many mosquitoes made it a bit less fun for my companion hikers.


Later on I read lots more of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to Nefarious and Cassie — she enjoyed it as well because they’re studying it at her school and we were at about the same point in the book as she’d left off at. And now it’s time to get Cassie home and Nefarious off to bed so that I can watch the fight! As I said, my fight predictions for the main card are Lesnar, St. Pierre, and Henderson. I’ll refrain from commenting on the results for those of you who have to wait for the torrent!

    I’ve started carrying a small can of bug spray with picardin. It’s a much friendlier bug spray than deet, doesn’t have the nasty feel to it that deet has, but only lasts about an hour or so. It’s not quite as good as deet, but unless you’re in really heavy bugs, it’s drawbacks are more than made up for by the advantages. It’s also kid-safe.

    Nice picks. The Hendo ko was a beautiful thing as well as GSPs dismantling of Alves. Well worth the 45. I dunno how high Rogan was though saying Belcher got robbed. It was an obvious 29-28 win for Sexyama.

    Amother good bug spray is to find a marigold based spray usually used for horses. Marigolds keep Mosquitos away and the sprays are safe for people and animals.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
