Well, I was worried for you, until I realized that the bike you were on was a motorized kind.

When I first (speed)-read your response, I thought you said you had to drug the kids to get them to go!

Our little granddaughter announced she wanted to be a Monster Rocketship for Halloween. I think my daughter came up with a pretty creative costume.

Made me laugh! At work we had a saying that the new guys had "a two-foot flame" out of their butts for their enthusiasm. The 25-year guys had a pilot light.

One guy was known as "Torch" because the flame never subsided.

Halloween and more softball! My middle daughter, who the forum helped name all those years ago, is growing up quick! She's in her last year of 10u, turning 11 in June, and now her little sister is old enough to play 8u!

Laurence, where did the time go? It seems like nearly yesterday when you were asking the forum what to name her. Your daughters are so cute and look pretty happy carving pumpkins.

Khor Virap in Armenia

This was one of the beautiful places we saw on our trip in October. Mount Ararat from Aremenia with Khor Virap in the foreground. I took this with my new Sony smart phone and am very pleased with the results. I've compared it with a similar picture I took with my heavy Canon DSLR and for my vacation snapshots, can't really see much difference. I still am going to use the DSLR for pictures of fast moving objects (ie grandchildren) though.
