It’s Summer and my house stinks

Seriously. It smells bad in here. No, it’s not stinky little boy feet or even gas exiting the male bottom parts in my house. I think, no wait I’m sure it’s a skunk. Also I’m sure it’s taken up residence under the house directly beneath my bedroom. We can’t exactly trap the skunk in our animal friendly trap because well, if you think about it you’ll get the picture. I thought maybe we could just lure it away with food or something. Apparently we must just sort of wait to see what he decides to do. With my luck it’ll be a she and she will have little stinkers under the house.

On another subject of stink – I stink at posting at any regular interval. Why? Because work sucks all of my creative juices and any patience with my computer right out of me by 5pm.  We’ve done tons of fun things since it snowed back in what February? I’m gonna play catch up in the late warm, ack, hot summer nights here in Texas with photos and stories. Mostly it’s for my most loyal reader (hi dad! we’re going to come catch some fish this weekend!) but the rest of you can enjoy too. Hang around for the ride (mostly like an 8yr old in a bumper car bent on giving his mom a massive headache).

Help!

A funny story

6yr old: “Mom wanna hear a funny story?
Before I could say ok….
6yr old: “One day Han Solo lost his hat. Then someone found it. But they couldn’t find a mail box to mail it to him. So then they….” Tons of giggles. Uncontrollable giggling.
Me: I quickly summarize the story and ask what’s so funny.
6yr old: Still giggling… “well then the person who found it put it in a trash can. And no one looked in the trash can for ten days (which reminded me of our forgetting the trash day) and on the eleventh day someone found it in the trash can and said hey Han Solo your hat’s in the trash can”
Me: “Oh hah. And that’s funny huh?”

Does Han Solo even have a hat? I think he meant Indiana Jones. You know being it was the same actor and all. It’s been ten minutes since he told me that story and I still hear them giggling about it. I will NEVER understand little boys.
