DICKIDOO JR (thanks plittle)

I keep telling Gabe that he will be his dad in 20 years.  They have the same hair line.  They have the same inability to grow a full face of hair.  And they are the only guys I have ever known who actually went to war and gained weight eating MREs.

Things have not worked out in the 'meet the grandbaby' department.  I guess it just isn't my time yet.  Instead of them flying out here Gabe will fly there and spend several days with his son.  I think I am being tested here.  I'm trying, but I'm not a very good test-taker.  This really sucks, but at least Gabe and Zachary will be able to be together for a bit.  Needless to say I shall be sending the Mini Nikon with Gabe so he can take lots of pictures for me!

I turned in Rocky's rented snare drum today.  That is probably the only good thing about the end of the school year as far as I'm concerned.  No more 'rat a tat tat' all day long!  Nope, now its just the constant, non stop jibber jabber of the Oompas as they refine their 'lets drive mama nuts' skills. 

91 days until school starts!

Paul was in my head I guess because I was so thinking he looked just like Dickidoo!

You're right..that sucks!  Gabe is only home a short time, it's not fair that he leaves you and Dickidoo for "several days"!!   It's good he'll see Zack but you guys need him in eyesight too!! sigh..  ok rant over..     it's not so bad that Gabe looks like Dickidoo.. Dickidoo did pretty darn good, he got YOU!

I wasn't connecting the twilight video dance and the fact that Rocky is the drummer..duh... no wonder she dances so well!  She's got da beat! hehe...

I am so sorry little Zachary will not have the experience of being spoiled by you and all the Oompas just now.  What a heartbreaking disappointment.  But that unique experience still awaits him in the future--maybe the not too distant future.  I have a feeling that you're pretty much up to any "test" anyone wants to put in front of you.  Meanwhile, enjoy having your son within arm's reach for a while yet.

I know exactly how disappointed you are, Dorn, but trust me, your time with Zachary will come.  But I am still rejoicing for the safe return of your son.

My kids totally HATE when I say this, but "Everything Happens for a Reason" and I guess there is some sort of reason you are not going to meet grandbaby right now.  OK, that being said....I still must say that TOTALLY SUCKS! (LOL)  You must be going out of your mind!  

How long is Gabe home for?

Speaking from an empty nest, please enjoy all the noise.  Hope you get to see the baby soon.....Sandi

Ahhh...MRE's. LoL, add me to your list on gaining weight on MRE's. During the Storm, that is mostly what we ate, and those chocolate bars are simply delicious, but they sure can clean your system in a hurry! hint: pepto Bismo in bar form, lol

Actually, there are some great meals to be had if you combine several MRE's together....Just ask Gabe if he has done that! LOL

Aww how cute, father like son. So who looks like you, we need pics. Give up the goodies.

Burning Question of the day.
Which Oompas looks like their mama?

No WAY!!  Rocky and Tabby really are soul-sisters.....Tabby is joining the local band next year, and guess what she picked to play?  The snare  drum!   She is the only girl who wants to play the drum.

Dave used to be in a Drum and Bugle corps for several years. He still drums on my head, the steering wheel, anything he can when a good song comes on.
