I look forward to the pics. BTW, Martha wanted me to tell you that the colon scope I had was a piece of cake. And it was. Just the prep work sucked.

Pics of Kodiak to follow in the next few days.
It is snowing now here. Originally we were supposed to get 8 to 11 inches, but now it looks like only 3 to 4. This is good because Greg is on a trip and I don't know how to operate the snowblower.

Look forward to the Kodiak pics.

Our teenager asked us about that "snowblower" word the other day and I made her take her request to Google Images.

She was horrified.

But if you can find someone to teach her how to run it, we'd be happy to lend her to you at a low monthly rate!

The last time I got a colonoscopy they printed out 4 photos from the procedure and gave them to me. Of course I have no proof that the photos are actually the insides of my colon, but I kept them anyway. I was thinking of making prints and sending them out as Christmas presents.

While your head is up there, why not just look around and see if things look like the pictures?
