I will send out a bonus package of cookies to the first person who can correctly tell me where the above quote comes from.
Late Wednesday night, My husband and I were restless and decided to take a drive. We ended up going 4 hours south of us to Columbus, TX, where my husband lived as a child. It is a small little town that has not changed at all, he says, in the last 20 years. It was neat to get to see where my husband played little league at and how far he had to ride his bike to get there. I was not able to take any pictures, as this was a spontaneous trip, I left the camera at home.. We stayed the night and headed home Thursday afternoon. It has been a while since we made a spontaneous trip. It was quite fun. I have noticed that in all the small towns we went through, there was always a Dairy Queen that looked like it has not been changed since the '60's. But enough of that...
I'm sure you all are ready for me to announce the winner, right? Okay here it goes. I put every one's name in a bowl, those who are followers got their name put in twice, and the winner is:
Since I didn't have that many people enter, I drew a second name for just a batch of cookies. The winner of just cookies is:

So after sitting in the theater for almost 2 hours, the movie finally starts. But wait, something has gone wrong. The lights are flickering on and off, the preview up on the screen keeps starting and stopping.. Whats going on??!! Wheres Harry, Ron and Hermione?
The lights dim, the preview comes back on. The next preview plays, wait. Stop. The lights flicker back on, the screen has gone blank. The crowded theater full of Harry Potter fanatics groans. Where's Hagrid, Dumbledore, and Professor Snape?
Another employee walks in. Don't worry folks just a slight snag and all will be good.
By 12:45, we finally get to see our 12:00 showing of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince and guess what?! They WERE experiencing technical difficulties!! But the movie was excellent and well worth the wait (we never did get our free popcorn!).
My husband has been off the last 2 days and does not go back to work till Thursday night, with the exception of going in this morning for a training class. He had to be there at 5:30 this morning. Since I had a 45 min drive back home from my sisters house after the movie my husband and I decided to meet close to where he works for breakfast. I am now stuffed and sleepy and extremely happy that I got to see the HP movie!
Since I do not have to work today, I am off to bed to catch some Z's. It has been a really long day!!

Anyways, in Ford and Rocky news, Rocky is getting big! I can hardly believe he is the same teeny tiny little kitten I brought home 2 months ago! Ford has really taken to him, most days. Rocky can be pretty annoying at times. He likes to follow his big brother around and swat at his tail. It also really cute when Rocky copies what Ford does..
