Ole, Ole, Ole, Ole!!!

Well, despite French skepticism, WE WON!! We all watched the France-Portugal game last night and France won one to zero because of a penalty shot. The Portuguese were gracious losers, I must say I was quite impressed. The other thing that impressed me is that as soon at it was over, you could hear loud shouts and cries of excitement from our neighbors and the town. The other thing you could hear was loud, continuous car honking for at least a good half hour. It was a little hard to go to bed with all of the cheering and honking outside. But that's what the World Cup is all about ;). Well, we'll have to wait until Sunday for the final game against Italy. They will be hard to beat!!

It's raining right now, and despite the nasty weather, Max is outside again working hard with a rake, hoe, and shovel clearing a mess of weeds from the backyard. Later, we'll be going to Colmar (a charming town about 20 minutes away) to pick up some friends about my age coming from California. They're staying at the house for a night as they make their way around Europe by rail. Wouldn't it be nice if this weather cleared up? In fact, now that I think of it, my dad's out in town on his bike running errands in this downpour. I don't feel too sorry for him, though-- when we were little and had to be outside when it was raining, he always said "Suck it up, a little rain never hurt anybody...". Right back atcha, dad :)!

I love the sympathy you have for your father. It's great that now we can tell them what builds character. When I'd tell my granpa I was thirsty he would say "Well spit and swallow." I always thought he was serious and I would just wine and say it didn't help...now I'm babbling..

Acid rain hurts people.

Men should be playing video games and drining beer. This whole "outside doing yardwork" trip is not kosher.

Oh, the slay on the yardwork from the parents in law. I didn't realize y'all were runnin' the Europe train for sheez until I read a bunch of yer older posts.

For Max, I suggest a grip of Jurassic-5. Steal it of the internet, burn it, and it'll make the time pass like no other. They've got a few albums that are hot like asphalt in the summer.

Mow 43 lawns and rock Quality Contro, or Feedback in your headphones. That's where it's at, y'all.

Hey...tell Max to run for the dry ground. Remember, those flying insects like rain.

Hey...good idea to get Max trained there is work to be done in the States too.
