He's a lil' shorter than Tom Cruise...
(But not by much)
Is hairier than Steve Carell...
Has bigger front teeth than Gary Busey...
Can build a home faster than Ty Pennington without usin' tools...
Is a better swimmer than Michael Phelps and scoffs at the idea of wearin' that silly cap and goggles...
Can you guess?

Thank the Lord above for ALL volunteer firemen.
What would we do without them?!
(I'm so proud of him!)
My hubs is a newbie fireman so he rode in the rescue truck.
Hi Sweetheart! Wave hello to everybody!

Lately, he's been joggin' the towpath as I pedal my mountain bike along side of him. But bein' hunched over has taken its toll on my neck. I have been in some pain due to an old football injury.
Not really, its a neck injury from when I was hit by a car when I was in my early 20's. (I thought a football injury sounded cooler.)
I asked him if there was some way I could have higher handle bars to take some of the pressure off my neck and shoulders since the ones in the bike stores aren't high enough.
His response was, "So you want to ride like Mary Poppins?"
"Yep, I sure do. Minus the umbrella." was my response.
So he whisked my bike into his shop and a few hours later came out with my new ride.
Julie Andrews... eat your heart out baby!

Cover them over with beautiful flowers,
Deck them with garlands, those brothers of ours,
Lying so silent by night and by day
Sleeping the years of their manhood away.
Give them the meed they have won in the past;
Give them the honors their future forcast;
Give them the chaplets they won in the strife;
Give them the laurels they lost with their life.

Sunshine in my eyes, can make me blind."
I went for a bike ride today.
Man, the weather has been gorgeous but the black flies are horrible and are out in full force!
You folks in the rural Northeast know what I'm talkin' about.
These teeny black bugs latch on and draw so much blood, even Dracula would wave you off and say he's had enough.
If ya look at one under a microscope, you'll see it has a lil' widow's peak and wears a black cape lined in red satin.
Then I came across this lyin' in the middle of the towpath.
Holy Cow! It was longer than my size 8.5 hoof!
Either Bam-Bam lost one of his drumsticks or a wild coydog had a delicious dinner.
My guess is the latter. He's probably dabbin' the corners of his mouth with a napkin right about now.
(I've seen my mama clean a Buffalo style chicken wing with one bite just like that.)
