   **" I love to get my wife all hot and bothered.... OK maybe the hot part isn't true......"**

    I find myself trying to sneak out our back door the last few days.   Not to sneak undetected from my wife, to roam around town.  She is more than happy any time I leave the house for awhile.  But because we have just bought a new car.  New to us anyway.  I might have mentioned it a time or two in my last blog.  And it is parked in front of our house.  Harmless enough, until you factor in that we are not getting insurance on the vehicle until I am finally legal to drive again.  A goal we are very close to.  But like many things we are doing in a strange order.  Buy the car, than get fully legal.  Move in, than get approved.  Move far away, fall back in love.  Get married than go on dates.   But it works for us. 
    I attempted to go to the Dirty Dan Festival in Fairhaven today, but than found out that it does not start until tomorrow.  Making it harder to attend.  I have never made it to the festival.   About all I know is it is for Dan Harris the founder of this great town.  And you can eat clam chowder, until it comes out of all of your holes, at the same time~ !  I will have more to report on all this very soon.  Speaking of events, my parents celebrate there 40th wedding anniversary next month.   An amazing  amount of time.  April & I have just made it a little over a month of being married.  A mere drop in the bucket compared to my parents relationship.  I will have the link to our wedding sight in my next blog.  We just need to add a few more key thoughts on the sight.  Our wedding will be in Bellingham, but we are having trouble picking a location, so if you have any suggestions--please comment!   I hope we get some great comments once the link is set up, and if you do not see yourself on the invite list and wish to be, please let me know.  On a related note I would like to thank all of the new in laws.  I do not believe the mother in law and I have had any issues since I moved back this time.  Although her now being on the road, could be part of that.  They are continually supportive of my blogs and the pictures I take.  Even the lamest of both in my eyes.  I would say they have not been very welcoming to the family on any level, but I have been a part of the family for just short of seven years now, so I guess that really is not an issue either. 
   I skipped yesterday "mini rant" and I am sure no one noticed.  So I am going to add a quick rant right here.  One that is not worthy of a full rant.  But has been gnawing on me for about a month now.   This is neighbors and relatives that knock once and than feel free to walk right in our house.  Maybe I am way behind on the times, but I find it extremely beyond rude.  It's different if you know they are just down the road and coming to your house.  One knock and than entering is fine.   But to knock once and just walk in, seems beyond rude in my book.  I will note my book is very short and full of mostly blank pages so far.   We have started locking the front door  which so far resulted in several neighbors bouncing off the door, not realizing it would be locked and still trying to enter.   But this is not an option with summer right around the corner and three kids running in and out for essentials like water and Skittles.   I personally am not comfortable enough with any of my friends or family to just walk in there house.  Any thoughts from my readers on any of this rambling?

    I have talked about Brian from Canada many a time.  He is my wife's pretend lover.  And from the sounds of things, he is about to make a visit soon.  Our oldest wanted to stay the night at a friends.  And his buddy told his dad that I was sick, our other two kids were out of the house for the night, and that my wife had a date to go on.  So if any of you see Brian -please contact me.  See what happens when you get something minor like the flu.  Your significant other feels it is something life threatening and goes on dates to prepare for after your funeral.   I think this flu was brought on by all of that warm weather last week and than the temperatures dropping.  It is still warm, but compared 50 is 20 degrees cooler than it was last weeksend.  Or I am sick simply from riding the bus.  Most of the people on the bus seem to be sick.  And like to pass the time by talking to me about everything from light bulbs to chickens.  They also like to share all of there germs.  As long as I don't acquire whooping cough.  Apparently this is skyrocketing in the state right now. 

   I hadn't found this picture when I wrote my "mini rant" complaining about dog owners that forget to clean up after there dogs.  It is in the blog now. 

     The more you know:

    Wow, Did i look like an idiot at the store yesterday....Heed my warning guys, if the cashier says strip down facing me, she's referring to your credit card.

I found out yesterday that laying down and playing dead only comes in handy when face to face with a bear, and NOT at important business meetings.

That's not funny.   OK  maybe a lil bit, but I am not sure why.

Today's picture of the day was shot several years ago.  In Bellingham, Washington.  I call it Winter Wonderland.
This is a large snow storm for the area. 
On a hike near WWU.
Heading up to the Seahome Observation Tower.
This is offers a great view, snow or no.
