Oh. Wow.

We heard about this on the radio today.

The Life Saving Bra

Of course, my son had a barrage of questions afterwards (ever tried to explain "underwiring" to a 7 yo boy, or a grown man for that matter).

What this online version of the story didn't have that the radio story did is that it was a wonderbra (called as such because you take it off and "wonder" where everything went, but I digress).

The story still has me dropping my jaw. This is the oddest thing I've heard in awhile.

(I figure I'm already pushing the "tasteful" limits with this post, so, sorry, no illustrative pictures)

I'm Braggin' Again

Trav played his first baseball game yesterday.

Waiting for the game to begin


At first base.



He Swings



He HITS


(the two batting pictures were different pitches)

He went 2 for 3 yesterday and was responsible for a couple of outs at first base. :)

Justification for Procrastination

I am the Queen of Procrastination, or would be if the organization ever got around to forming and crowning me.

Sometimes, procrastination works to my advantage. Like the time I had to write an essay as part of my annual review at work, but I put it off and then my review was canceled. Had I been diligent, I would have done work for nothing.

Now, consider spring flowers. This little guy would have well served (and much warmer) had he not bloomed for a couple of more weeks.

My Opinion

Related to March 27th's post --

It seems to me that when you are obnoxious about your faith, and don't care to offend people "for the gospel," you really don't show them Christ's love, either.
