Only in Hollywood!

In a scene reminiscent of the slow-mo Bronco chase years ago, news choppers followed overhead as LA's celebrity gator, Reggie, was brought to the LA Zoo after finally being caught this afternoon after being spotted by Machado lake, where he has eluded capture until today, by park rangers.

The county spent in excess of $180K in the past trying to capture Reggie.

He has a fan club, his own blog here, and of course, there was a press conference to discuss how he will be taken in for observation to make sure he wasn't injured in his capture.


Vision of the Seas

We'll be on the middle top aft cabin balcony in a little over 4 months! It will be my first aft balcony (they are larger than the side cabin balconies), my first cruise on the Vision, and Paul's very first cruise (civilian, that is).

Vision is larger than the Monarch of the Seas that I've sailed in the past and will sail again in February on our annual Girl's Gone Wild (J/K) Cruise. I can't wait to "Get out there!"

Adie Got Glasses Too!

Adie now has glasses like big brother Lukas. They turn dark in the sunlight too!

Check out the teeth too! Now if she would just decide to start walking. Heh. She can walk, but she would rather crawl it seems.

Seven Random Things About Me

Ronni tagged me!

Here are the rules: Each player starts with 7 random facts/habits about themselves. People who are tagged need to write on their own blog about their seven things, as well as these rules. You need to choose 7 people to get tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them that they have been tagged and to read your blog! (I can't tag 7 because Ronni tagged a few I would have tagged, I will tag less than 7. LOL!)

Ok, here we go.

1) "Rudy" and "Remember the Titans" are two of my favorite movies. I love movies based on fact and the more uplifting, the better.

2) The first letter of each of my several last names spell "THAPS". Appropriate if you think about it. Heh.

3) I had to 'borrow' hay bales for a going-away "barn dance" for our loft in high school for my best friend and her brother. My sister, best friend and I had to run interference with our parents to keep them from finding my girlfriend's brother was drunk when they were bringing out sandwiches and refreshments (her family was moving to Puerto Rico.) The boys had been to a 'river party' before coming to our dance. After the dance, the hay was returned.

4) I was kicked out of beauty school. Expelled. Asked to get my 'kit' and go home. (Did you know you can smuggle vodka inside a hair spray can if you pry the top off and sterilize it? A cork fits perfectly in the hole and the plastic top goes over that!)

5) When I married Paul, I told my friends I had registered at "Jacoby & Meyers".

6) I was told we were related to President Harry S Truman.

7) I could tell you alot more but then I'd have to ... well, you know!

Gwenhwyfar, Occam and Stacey, consider yourselves tagged!
