You can't make me!!!

Happy Friday Folks!!!! I've taken the day off to drive to Des Moines to see my buddies Mel and Sheila. Mel and I are on the kayak safety team for the HyVee Triathlon next weekend...and wanted to get out in our boats one more time before the big day.

Anyhoo...I'll be back around on Monday. Until then, I leave you with this little news story gem I found yesterday....







When a son, angry that his father had ordered him to clean up his room, screamed at Dad and threw a plate of food across the dinner table, Dad called 911. The son is 28-year-old Andrew Mizsak, who lives rent-free with his parents in the Cleveland suburb of Bedford, Ohio, and is a member of the Bedford School Board (and whose mom is a city councilwoman). After police arrived, the habitually untidy son apologized and, according to their report, "was sent to his room to clean it. He was crying uncontrollably." Subsequently, the school board punished Andrew by removing two of his duties. [Plain Dealer (Cleveland), 5-17-09]


I'm not quite sure what to say???

@ Cowguy - during the orientation they were talking about all sorts of official stuff. Then at the end, they told us not to worry about meals during the day..."If there's anything HyVee can do well, it's keep people fed."

I can't wait for next weekend. I'm terrified, yet excited, all at the same time!!! :-)
