Back to Normal (in facty-ality)

Remember last post when I was feeling a bit off? I felt like the PTA ladies were talking behind my back and my poker game suddenly went south - and by south I mean my bankroll suddenly went from 90 bucks down to 12, yes, twelve bucks!

But guess what? I made it all back plus some. And the PTA ladies - they were talking about someone else. Rock!

The pic above is me (red hair, glasses) playing poker at the IHG the other night - scroll down if you want the low-down on that very fun night.

In other news, the blue jay that lived in our lemon tree out from got ripped up by a cat or mountain lion. Why this is sad, besides the fact that vegetarian fhwrdh had to pick the little corpse up with a garbage bag is that this was a cool little blue jay that came back every spring to build a nest in the lemon tree and lay eggs. It used to hop around the yard and look in our windows at us. When the kids would get too close to the lemon tree it would chase them away.

Goodbye scrappy little blue jay.

PS Cats suck

Funny... fhwrdh was just telling us about your downswing and comeback, as well as the fact that he's not a true vegetarian. He ate a fish sandwich. :)

True that fhwrdh is not a true veggie anymore - not for about 3 years anyway when he read "Eating Well For Optimum Health" by Dr. Andrew Weil.

Unfortunaly, he also read "Drinking Lots for Optimum Inebriation" at the same time so 'y'know.
