Catching up...



Just a couple pictures from Easter. Sierra looked very pretty in her Easter dress, although we don't go to church anymore, we dressed her up for the family dinner. The bunny brought her a tinkerbell Easter basket with tinkerbell toys, plastic toy kitchen utensils and blocks instead of candy.

Friday it snowed again (so much for being the second day of spring) and on the way into work about 3 car-lengths in front of me a pickup truck wiped out which gave me quite a fright. He was traveling quite fast in the left lane, pulled a "Dale Earnhardt" crossing traffic in the right lane, hit the guard rail head-on, bounced off and came to rest in the median of the interstate highway just before the exit I was about to get off. My vehicle was untouched and I was able to slam on the brakes and make it through, although it could have just as easily been a 6+ car pile-up. Right then after everyone had come to a halt a 20-25 foot diesel truck came barrelling through, narrowly missing the pickup truck which already had its front bumper smashed off.

To make up for the loss of Friday's post, here's the Friday Video. My workload at the job has increased so apologies for the relative inactivity, but essentially I'm pretty overwhelmed now with work. Right, here's Black Kids with "I'm Not Going To Teach Your Boyfriend How To Dance"

Glad you avoided the wreck, Stephen. That's always a wake up moment, eh?

She is such a little cutie. I love seeing the little ones all dressed up in their Easter fashions.

When I was out & about on Saturday, I got caught in traffic caused by a 5-car pile up. But this was just on one of the "regular" roads. Reminds me why I *hate* dirving in Orlando. Old people + tourists = disaster.

They don't call it "God's waiting room" for nothing, Dawn. I hated driving down the Orange Blossom Trail, it's got to be the worst road in Florida.

Actually no, I take it back. Sand Creek road is worse. Leading up to the Florida Mall. Jess can attest to that.

I give you Charlotte, NC at rush hour.

In the rain.

Glad to hear you escaped from what could have been a pretty nasty accident.

LOL! It was *on* OBT! Down by the Florida Mall. John Young Parkway isn't a picnic either.

Spring weather? What is that then?

Ted D said...

Stephen, just checking in. Hadn't seen you around the interwebs in a few days. Hope nobody is sick or anything.

Just linked you on my blog. How could I not include someone who calls himself Redbeard??

~**Dawn**~ said...

LOL! I know exactly where he's been hiding online, Ted. ;-)
