I got this one in an email. Our esteem provincial leaders have spend a truck load of money to change our logo. They figure this new packaging will encourage people to visit our fair province. So instead of Friendly Manitoba (yes I can be friendly on occasion), we are now Spirited Energy. What this really means is up for debate. However, I think the photographer has captured the true meaning. Decide for yourself.

WHEW!! Baseball is finally over for the boy. I enjoyed the season, but am glad it is over. While the team did not win alot of games (3), they are a great group of boys. They all get along and are fun to be with. That being said, I have a complaint or two. The way the Provincials are set up is just not fair to the city teams. The city teams are tiered. A, AA, and AAA. These boys played A ball. The country teams are not tiered. Therefore, the boys are playing AA and AAA players. Let's face it, they didn't have a hope. It really bothers me they have it set up that way. When the city teams make it to the provincials, they are allowed to pull players from the other A ball teams that did not make the Provincial. They are forbidden to pull AA or AAA players. How is this fair? The country teams the boys played go on and are playing in the AA and AAA Provincials too. I would like to meet the Einstein who figured out this was a fair way to set it up. I admit, the only way the boys made the Provincials is because we were the host team and get a bi into the Provincials, but I still don't think it is fair. Needless to say, out of the three city teams in the Provincials, none of them went on to the finals. Oh well, chalk it up to "No one said life was fair" category. At least the boys had a good time and I am proud of all of them. On another note, this is something that I have been thinking about all season. I wonder how many Ice Cream men go crazy by the end of the season? If I had to listen to Turkey In The Straw, one more time, I think I would have lost my mind. These people have my admiration. I think I would put a bullet in my head if I had to listen to that music for 4 months. These are just some of the things on my mind.

This is what happens when you wear a knee brace and sit through three days of baseball.

You find out interesting things when you have sons, like

1) A king size waterbed holds enough water to fill a 2000 sq. ft. house 4 inches deep.

2) If you spray hair spray on dust bunnies and run over them with roller blades, they can ignite.

3)A 3-year old Boy's voice is louder than 200 adults in a crowded restaurant. 4) If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor is not strong enough to rotate a 42 pound Boy wearing Batman underwear and a Superman cape. It is strong enough, however, if tied to a paint can, to spread paint on all four walls of a 20x20 ft. room. 5)You should not throw baseballs up when the ceiling fan is on. When using a ceiling fan as a bat, you have to throw the ball up a few times before you get a hit. A ceiling fan can hit a baseball a long way. 6) The glass in windows (even double-pane) doesn't stop a baseball hit by a ceiling fan. 7.) When you hear the toilet flush and the words "uh oh", it's already too late. 8.) Brake fluid mixed with Clorox makes smoke, and lots of it. 9.) A six-year old Boy can start a fire with a flint rock even though a 36-year old Man says they can only do it in the movies. 10.) Certain Lego's will pass through the digestive tract of a 4- year old Boy. 11.) Play dough and microwave should not be used in the same sentence. 12.) Super glue is forever. 13.) No matter how much Jell-O you put in a swimming pool you still can't walk on water. 14.) Pool filters do not like Jell-O. 15.) VCR's do not eject "PB & J" sandwiches even though TV commercials show they do. 16.) Garbage bags do not make good parachutes. 17.) Marbles in gas tanks make lots of noise when driving. 18.) You probably DO NOT want to know what that odor is. 19.) Always look in the oven before you turn it on; plastic toys do not like ovens. 20.) The fire department inAustin , TX has a 5-minute response time. 21.) The spin cycle on the washing machine does not make earthworms dizzy. 22.) It will, however, make cats dizzy. 23.) Cats throw up twice their body weight when dizzy. 24.) 80% of Women will pass this on to almost all of their friends, with or without kids. 25.) 80% of Men who read this will try mixing the Clorox and brake fluid. I got this as an email. As I read through it, I realized that I knew alot of these things already. Hmm and people wonder why I drink. I would like to add a couple things too 1) Sparkle playdough looks pretty but when it is left on the carpet, it has become more permanent than your widowed mother in law moving in. 2) When iced tea crystals are spilled on the long and narrow kitchen floor, it looks like sand at the beach. This makes children want to turn the sprinkler on in the kitchen. 3) If a child is climbing furniture that is not anchored to the wall, pray it has doors that open when the furniture falls over preventing the child from becoming permantly squished into the carpet along with the playdough. 4) Macaroni and cheese spilled on carpet and covered with a pillow will also become permanent. 5)Using a broomstick to hold up your mattress to make a cool fort will poke a hole into your mattress. This makes it very uncomfortable to sleep on. (until you con your sister into switching mattresses) 6) A suitcase is Not a cat carrier. 7) If you are throwing a truck at your sibling in anger, make sure they are not standing in front of a window. 8) Snowballs may seem harmless, but they do break windows. 9) Easy Bake oven mixes do mold when left hidden under your bed. 10) Crawling into a corner and curling up in a ball and repeating "I love my children", does NOT make it all better. I would love to hear some of the things you have learned about children too.

We went to a wedding on Saturday. It was beautiful. I can honestly say I don't think I have ever seen a more gorgeous bride. The groom loves her soo much. It is obvious. Through the ceremony he was holding her hands and rubbing her arms. It was so sweet. He looked at her with such love it makes a person want to cry. With the state of marriages now, I really hope they make it. I hope they stay that much in love. The world needs more love like that. Best wishes Matt and Cheryl

As promised here are some pictures of my reunion. The picture was from the social on Friday night. We were all a little drunk. Not the most flattering picture. These are the people from my graduating class that were there this weekend. I am in the burgandy in the back row.

I have really busy lately. The School Division in its infinite wisdom decided it would be a good idea to close my old high

school and amalgamate the two high schools, move the elementary school kids to my old high school and close one elementary school. This little plan made sense to someone, somewhere. (or so I am told). Anyway, since the high school will cease to exist come September, a Farewell Reunion was planned. I packed up my family and went to visit my hometown. I admit I was a little nervous about seeing people I hadn't seen in almost 18 years. Let's face it, I am no covergirl. Turns out I had a fantastic time! There was a Social on the Friday night. Apparently a Social is a Manitoba thing. For the initiated, I will explain. Basically a social is a huge adult party. There is music, dancing, and food. I saw so many people I hadn't seen in ages. A lot of people I recognized right away, some I needed others to remind me who they were. It was a great time and the band (Horseshoes and Handgrenades) were fantastic! I didn't have a lot of time to visit with everyone, so I thought I would catch up with them at the dinner and dance the next night. Wouldn't you know it, most of them weren't there the next night. The dinner and dance was also a huge success. There were over 1000 people there. Considering my hometown only has a population of about 13,000 it was a huge event. They had a photographer taking pictures of each graduating class there. Too bad there was only 14 people from my graduating class there. However, I got to catch up with most of them. Like an idiot though, I forgot to bring my camera.

Once I get pictures, I will post them. I am really glad I went and didn't let my insecurities

prevent me from enjoying something that may never happen again. I did make a fool out of myself a couple times though. The first happened when a friend brought this guy over to our table. She was going around telling him "you remember so and so" . I had NO idea who this guy was. Finally I got another friend to lean over and say to her " who is this?" It was a guy I had known since the fifth grade. I felt so silly. However in a side note he was way too good to speak to me in high school. I guess I am better now. The other goof I made was even bigger. I was talking to a friend of mine. Then he introduced me to his wife. I shook her hand and told her it was nice to meet her. She started to laugh and say "actually you already know me. I am Sherri's little sister" (Sherri was one of my best friends in junior high). I felt really stupid then. Oh well, I guess some things never change.

All in all, it was a good time. I am really glad I went and I hope I get to hear from some of the

people I reconnected with. That has been my life in a nutshell. HAPPY CANADA DAY AND HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!!!
