Engagement Pictures

October 30, 2007

Here are some pictures from Engagement Night

Michele and Joe


Mike and Amy met us out afterwards. Mike is a friend of mine from back home and I met Michele through Amy.


Raising a toast with Mike, Amy and Alli. Alli was my main co-conspirator.

And of course.

On the other hand, Who’s The Boss reruns do not crack me up. I missed that show the first time around and the reruns I’ve recently ran across (no cable in the garage) show me how little I missed.

And I never (and still) don’t get the Alyssa Milano thing.

I have a confession to make.

There. I feel better now.

Explosive Tacoma

October 9, 2007

On Saturday 10/6, a propane truck exploded at Atlas Castings & Technology down the road in Tacoma. Four people were hurt, one critically, as the place went up in flames.

Here’s a video of a huge explosion during the fire. I love the guy off screen. His instinctive reaction is excitement and awe followed by an obligatory moment of worry for others.

There are a couple of other video’s here.


Cowboy Cleaners

October 8, 2007

I saw this van at the Grocery Store down the street.

My initial thought was, “Since when are Cowboys clean?”

Then I see the hairy chest. “Hmmm. I think I might be missing something”.

Perceptive guy that I am, I finally notice the pink triangle. “Aha.”

Cowboy Cleaners

But I still don’t get it? Who the hell wants a to have a cowboy clean their house, even if he’s a gay cowboy. It’s like asking a Biker Gang to provide security at a rock festival.

(OK , so it’s not that bad)
