Rain, Rain, Go Away...

The girls want the sun to come out so they can play in the front yard like in this photo.  Otherwise it's inside all day.

Not to worry, girls.  We live in California.  It doesn't rain THAT often.

Cough, Sneeze, Hack

Ah, the problem with having little children: they sneeze right into your face.  What chance does one have of staying healthy?

At least I am knocking down lots of tea today.  Miss Jill wisely bought me an electric teapot years ago which helps out the cause.

Hurts So Good

Yes, the game might have taken place over a week ago but this Bruin still feels proud over UCLA finally defeating their archrival, 38-28.  In the picture on the right, linebacker Anthony Barr (from Loyola High, thank you very much) smashed Matt Barkley and knocked him out of the game (and the Notre Dame game as well).   While UCLA lost their next game to Stanford (way too many penalties), they still advanced to the Pac-12 title game against Stanford (odd quirk in the schedule).  The winner goes to the Rose Bowl.  Wow, Mister John hasn't been to the Rose Bowl since 1999... yes, the Cade McNown era. 

Girls Celebrate Thumpsgiving with Cookie Sue

Mary Jane and Betsy celebrated Cookie Sue and Betsy's first Thumpsgiving with the family.  As seen to the right, Mary Jane slightly missed on placing the food in the bowl but Phillip (not amused that MJ fed Cookie Sue first) was OK with it.  Betsy politely patted Heidi on the back which startled the carmel-colored bunny but she was ultimately hoppity over it.

All-Time Bruin Rushing Leader

All Hail the new Bruin Rushing Leader
That Arizona game was quite impressive: nothing like a 66-10 victory to make you feel a little better about yourself.  But still three games remain.  Just make sure we win the one in the middle.

Cookie Sue Looking Like a Bugg

Cookie Sue was quite a relaxed bunny on Saturday.  She stretched out her back feet and watched some flat-screen TV in her cage (didn't know she had one).

Today she was a bit argumentative with her new-sister Heidi.  But they'll get along, really they will.
