We Buy a New Car

All

After Lyn's little parking lot "fender-bender" in December ended up getting the Buick totalled, we went shopping for a replacement car. Dave had always enjoyed the handling and reliability of driving a Taurus when he rented from Hertz. Instead of looking in the paper, and going to local used car lots, we used CarMax with internet searches and no-haggle pricing. CJ Rowland didn't sell us a Taurus, he simply helped us find it. And we have been very satisfied since then.

If you meet CJ, ask him about his two pet snakes

Jesse Goes to SOLAR

Jesse

In March, Jesse went to SOLAR, a LARP event and a chance to take his tabletop dungeons and dragons fun out into the Georgia woods. "Boffer" weapons are thin pvc pipe wrapped in foam, then gray duct tape. Spells are cast with small bean bags. Each character, just like at home, has strengths and weaknesses, but the game requires that you dress appropriately and run about. When you meet a stranger on the path, remember to ask "What do I see?" in case they reply "a 20 foot tall red skinned humanoid". And take their gold when you kill them.

These 4 elves are Hayley, Matt, Josh, and Frank. They are 
a sorceress, a fighter, a rogue, and a very mean fighter.

His mom, so very proud of her son.
His dad, bragging to anyone that will listen.

Jesse's Graduating Class - May 2005

The Devil-Rays kindly provided left field of the baseball stadium and trinitron scoreboard. Surprisingly, only about 400 graduates attended. Not surprisingly, about half of them were "honors" students, and "high honors" like Jesse.

Figment Passes Away

Figments Final Days- May 2005

Figments Final Days- May 2005

Figment had little to enjoy in the crowded condo, with no fresh air, very little sunshine, and crowded furniture.
In the end, he was blind in one eye, and had stopped eating and drinking for 5 days. But he was not in pain.
