Even though I just upgraded to Snow Leopard, I see that Apple is now out with OS Lion. I think all that's left for future choices are OS Ocelot and OS Cheeteh, neither of which sound appealing; OS Cheetah for obvious reasons and OS Ocelot because it sounds like "OS cost-a-lot" if you say it quickly.
It's good to know however that long after all the big cats have become extinct in the wild, they'll continue to live on in the MacIntosh Menagerie.
S & N decided they needed to bring the following items with them when we went to wait for C & H at the bus stop this afternoon:
1. flash light
2. 10 8oz. plastic cups
3. plastic shopping cart
4. half finished bowl of oatmeal and a spoon (placed inside the shopping cart).
H acknowledges mommy's favorite Dr. Seuss character.
In the past month C wrote an acrostic Halloween poem for school that touted the avoidance of high fructose corn syrup and H failed to recognized a photograph of Ronald McDonald ("it's a clown").
Those are my boys.

OMG! Guess who was speaking at the Eric Carlie Museum of Picture Book Art today!
Sorry, but if you don't know who Norton Juster is then you had a sad deprived childhood and I feel sorry for you.
Proof that the holidays are too close together: S & N want to know if Santa is coming for Thanksgiving dinner.
I can't speak for Santa, but this turkey arrived at our house a week early. And he didn't bring a side dish.

When there's day after day of plus-60°F weather during November, we say "Shhhhhh. Don't jinx it."
But when there's a cold streak in May the right-wing pundits are quick to sarcastically say, "and the scientists claim there's global warming."
I love how kids see the world. Always in a more optimistic (and creative) light than adults.
Our neighbors are having some work done to the underground irrigation system in their front yard. The landscape trucks have been there for two days and dug a large hole which they covered with planks.
On the way to the bus stop yesterday H exclaimed, "look at the trap the neighbors dug!"
