I listened to All Rebel Rockers about 16 times:

I watched This movie, which I thought was really beautiful. And I watched this movie:

Simply because I can hardly wait to vote for Al Franken for senate.

I savored this book of poems:

And I adored this skit:

August From Bedlam to Snuffy's

First off, I have cheated. I just posted Bemidji and Bedlam photos, but I predated them August 3rd and August 21st so the blog would remain chronologically sound.

Secondly, here am I this weekend taking my chauffer duties very seriously as I shuttle the kiddos from maltshop to playground:

The kids became fascinated by the outdated technology called "cassette tapes" that Auntie Paula had all over the floor of her back seat. In this way, I was able to introduce them to selections from the Replacements, Sorry Ma, Forgot to Take Out the Trash. They also found about 28 cents. (That's my sister and niece in the car behind us.)

Small change and punk rock?? Weeeeeee!
