Some interesting notes

- My children love to watch the movie version of "Click, Clack, MOO Cows that type". I am surprised they have not yet asked what a typewriter is.

- The other day we were talking about GI Joe. The children asked what that was. I said "It's like a Ken Doll, but it's a soldier." They then wondered if he had a sword and helmet. The only soldiers they really know about are apparently the ones from the Bible. I explained that he might have a gun. Abby knew what that was because Pa has a gun that he hunts with in the "Little House" books. My children are clearly sheltered, but I don't mind.

- David and Monica were here visiting for Spring Break last week. Paul and I went out with them on a double date. We played Putt Putt (I am not quite as awful as I used to be, but I still lost). Afterward we played games in the arcade. My favorite is spider stomp, but it is somewhat hard to play in flip-flops while wearing a skirt.

- One of the games I played was Pac Man. When I was a kid it seems like there was Pac Man everywhere. In gas stations, at restaurants etc. I think the Dairy Queen even had a two player Pac Man game.

- On rainy days my joints swell and I feel miserable. I think I must be getting old. I used to love rainy days.

LOL It's not exactly good to have your kids "unsheltered." Good luck on the rain...speaking of which maybe that's why both shoulder blades and my hips hurt today...huh.
