Random Thursday

I think that this might be a new theme for my Thursday posts, which invariably I write late at night on Wednesday, so really it's a Wednesday post, but everyone reads it on Thursday. Now that I have you thoroughly confused, I'll move on.

Random #1
I'm totally in love with books on CD, as I have mentioned. I've gone back to Jane Erye and I have 6 more CD's left. It's 20 hours long. It's really made me listen to every word, because sometimes when I read I have a bad habit of skimming.

Random #2
I stole this from my niece's facebook.

I'm dreaming of a better world where chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned.

Random #3
Yesterday, my husband had a client come to the house in a cowboy hat and boots and my daughter thought he had "Mantracker" for a client. (A Canadian show where a cowboy hunts down two people by following their tracks. It's quite entertaining.), which goes to show that all cowboys look the same, at least to an 8 year old girl.

Random #4
We went to Lake Louise on the weekend (by Banff) and my son thought he could cross a bunch of logs that had collected near shore, but fell in. Instead of being the concerned parent, I asked him to do it again so I could catch it on video. Here is is after he got wet up to his waist.

That's it. Have a great weekend.

LOL! The chicken crossing the road!!! Yeah, how come we need to know 'why?' Lets leave the chickens alone.

Wow, you live near Lake Louise, in Banff. Just Wow. I've seen it on tv and it's beautiful. I'm jealous.

And score one for the chicken.

Score two for your daughter. I lived in the wild west for a few years and yes, all cowboys do look alike, even to 38 year old women.

I love the chicken crossing the road thing. That's too funny.

I would've crossed the logs with my son. He inherited my stupid.

As for books on CD, my CD player in the car is busted, has been for about 2 years. Dangit. I'd love to have some CDs again...

Listening to books on a long drive makes the travel so much faster. I love doing that!

#2 Patti. Your niece is so cool. I have to print that out and have it by my computer. Funny!

I love Jane Eyre! It would be a great audio book.

I wish I had your wit. You just tickle my funny bone.

Your kids are lucky to have you.

I love the randomness. I especially like that you had your son try to cross the logs again. Fun.
