Our parakeet Striker was generous enough to pose for a split second while I captured this shot of him with my camera phone. At the bottom of the image you can see little Ava, our newest bird, who Striker has been looking out for since she got here a few weeks ago. (5/17/2008)
I totally have Cavs fever! I am watching Game 5 right now and Cleveland is kicking Celtic butt. Having seen LeBron James play a few times, I think they can pull this off and make it to the final game this year. He is truly amazing, so if you’ve never seen him and love to watch great ball, definitely do.
The first half ends with Cavs 46, Celtics 43. But I will skip the boring half-time reports where the sports jockeys babble about stats and shots.
A few of my coworkers and I went to Seattle this week for business, and during our lunch hour, we walked to Pike Place Market. The group was walking fast (we were hungry), so I snapped what I could without holding them up too much. I’ve picked a few of my favorites for this post, but they all link back to the Webshots album, where you can see the rest.
Jessica celebrated her 29th with an eventful weekend, including a birthday bash at home (pictured), a Cleveland Cavaliers game, a visit to the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame, and a party at her Mom’s room at the Ritz-Carlton, along with a lot more! It was a great time and, of course, a wonderful celebration of a beautiful and amazing person.
Our new pets–they’re both a type of small broad-tailed parrot called budgerigars (also known as parakeets or budgies). Don’t you think they’re cool? Belle is the beautiful blue one and Striker is the sharp-looking green one.
On Wednesday morning, I was greeted with a winter wonderland! Snow was silently falling, and I wanted to show my dad the Ford Focus (his car that he gave me) covered in snow. It took Dan a good 20 minutes to scrape off all the ice and dig out the ice and snow to create a path to drive. In the video, I also mention the horrible ice storm that happened on Tuesday night–ice + snow = Welcome to Ohio!
