I Wasn't Expecting to See That Today

My parents called me a few minutes ago to tell me there were a couple hot air balloons flying by. I was able to get outside with my camera just as they were flying past the end of our street. My camera battery was almost dead but I did get a couple photos.



Movie Review: Blood Night: The Legend of Mary Hatchet (2009)

Synopsis: In 1989, Mary Mattock, who suffers from menstrual psychosis and is serving time in a psychiatric hospital for murdering her family, is raped by a prison guard and becomes pregnant.

So I Am Fairly Certain Our Cat Used to Be a Dog in a Past Life

For one, this cat loves to be brushed. Yes, I'm certain there are cats out there that are the same way. But, I've had a lot of cats in my life and this is the first one I can say that about. He'll even stare at his brush until I pick it up and roll over on his back so I can get his belly.
