Jacob's latest tooth

Jacob got his top tooth knocked out playing baseball last night during
our Memorial Day BBQ. At first he was spooked by it- the tooth is in
our yard somewhere - but after we assured him that the tooth fairy
will come anyway, he felt much better.

He found four quarters under his pillow this morning :-)

Bottom tooth gone!

Jacob was fiddling with that tooth all during field day today. He
wanted to get onto Mrs. Brockhaus' tooth chart and he'll just make
it! Tomorrow is the last day of school and his last lost tooth was
last July, just before we left NC.


The NEW Major Tom

Have you heard the cover of the Peter Schilling "Major Tom" song by Shiny Toy Guns? It's featured in the 2010 Lincoln MKZ commercial on TV. I really like it.  The You Tube below will play for you the whole thing.

Interestingly, last year Lincoln used a cover of the David Bowie version to advertise the 2009 MKS ("Space Oddity", which is my favorite of the batch, by the way).

By the way, I'm not a fan of Lincoln automobiles and am not endorsing the product in any way.  Just their choice in music to advertise their products :-)

The Incredible Changing Woman

I'm quite impressed -- in 2 1/2 weeks I was able to go from this:

From 2009 04 07 Muff_My_Last_Week

To this:
From 2009 04 24 AFWA_DiningOut

(Do I look like one of those ladies from the cast of Dynasty just standing around in a formal gown?)

I made it home from the desert in time to go with Dave to his office's "dining out". For some reason I emphatically proclaimed that I wanted to wear a dress instead of my mess dress. This is the first time in 15 years I've been to a military formal NOT in my mess dress:

Also, I have to express how impressed I am that I'm wearing a NINE YEAR OLD DRESS! Whoo hoo! It's still in pretty good shape, structurally, and (most importantly) IT STILL FITS ME!

Lucky me, I found this picture of me in the dress from almost exactly 9 years ago:

Pardon the strange-looking makeup there.  I look like an unpopular geisha or something...
