I drove home from work yesterday and when I pulled up to my house I saw two cop cars and two other cars out in front and several people standing around talking to officers, my husband among them.  

So I started to freak out a little, parked jumped out of my car, and walked over.  first words out of hubby's mouth, before I could even ask what happened, were, "Look what some a**hole did to our fence.  

I looked down and saw that the board that runs along the bottom part of the fence right there had been pulled loose from the fenceposts and even broken in one place.  Also our garbage can, which had been standing right in front of the fence, was totally smashed in.  It was obvious someone had hit it with their car, most likely backed into it and then took off.  

Pissed me off, but should be easy to fix.  Now I have to fix this myself, can't call the landlord anymore - welcome to home ownership!!!  

The cops were there because hubby had called them to report the damage.  One of the other cars saw the cops there and stopped to report some totally unrelated incident of I don't know what.  The other car stopped because apparently the occupants of the two cars knew each other.  Whatever.

Happy Spring!

Sorry it's been so long since I posted.  I had wanted to post some pictures from the ski trip, but am having some difficulty with that right now.  So, onto other things.  

My dad did a post about going back and reading old blog posts that you had written.  I started reading thru some of mine and decided this one could use another go-round.  I'll use it to embarrass Trevor when he's older.

It's hard to believe it's the first day of spring.  This year is just flying by.  We have already been to the beach a couple times (though not in the water) and it seems like last week we were wearing coats and bitching about the cold!

Piano Men

Billy Joel and Elton John were awesome.  The show started at 7:45 and went on 'til about 11:oo.  They started out together on two grand pianos facing each other.  They opened the concert with "Your Song", then did 3 more together.  Then Elton took the stage and did a set of about 10 of his own songs.  He is a hugely amazing piano player, and very entertaining.  After that, without a break at all, Billy Joel came on with his band and did about 10 of his songs.  He is a great piano player too, but he also rocked it out with the guitar and twirled and threw the mikestand and stuff like that.  Really fun!  At the end they came on together again and did six more songs, ending with "Piano Man".  Terrific show!!!
