Devon was trying to climb a hallway wall like you can see in this video.
Devon is 6' 4" and 195lbs trying to climb a hallway wall made of drywall. The following photo is the result.
He will be doing a lot of extra chores in the coming months.

Do donkey's have udders? When I read Lauren's post the first thing I though of was that classic movie line:
What are your thoughts? Frankly I think Lauren is very wise to be cautious.

I forget to write in here because I live so close to so many siblings. At any rate, not a whole lot going on in my area. Working with two budding companies trying to create a substantial web presence. Nelson & Associates is a gun distributor based out of Green Bay and New Paradigm is a home theater business planting its roots in Fond du Lac.
Ummmm, that's all she wrote for now. FYI, the title of this post is from the Simpsons.
Here is a video you should see if you haven't yet. Props to Brooke for showing it to me.

Well, Mom and Dad's visit has come and gone, and besides from almost falling from scrambling up a mountain face them I think they had a great time! Apparently Dad still lies in bed at night and moans 'We should never have gone on that Falls hike.' but what doesn't almost kill you isn't worth doing! We got some great pictures and great memories.
The six-mile-one-way-3000ft-ascent is pretty challenging, but the reward is a magnificent crystal clear lake. I was able to stay in the lake for about 5 seconds before succumbing to the icy waters.
Of course what goes up must come down. Taylor and I stayed overnight, which meant hauling gear all the way to the top. For the future, we decided a day trip would be much more enjoyable. Along the way you may find furry little critters to keep you company.
Little guy sizing us up.
Side note: I quit my job today. I'll be coming home at the beginning of next month.

So Taylor is actively looking for a new SLR camera for her trip to Thailand. She sent me an email this morning about an amazing deal for the Nikon D60 at http://www.elitecamcorders.
Word to the wise: Not only research the product you want to buy, but research who you are buying from!
I know for a fact that younger sister *cough* Katelyn has already been a victim to the bait-and-switch scam when she was buying a camera a couple years ago. And when you are reading testimonials, don't just read the ones hosted by the seller, but 3rd party sites where you'll get the full story. Seems like common sense, but these sites are tricky. That link is the various company names that elitecamcorders go under. There are literally thousands of people who are taken for a loop because they see an attractive price and throw caution to the wind.
P.S. I've put my older posts on oldvatertime for archival purposes. This blog will stay open to the public indefinitely.
