night there was a birthday party for me at MaryLou's
house... it was just a good ole-fashioned birthday
party/game night. We played Bananas and Balderdash...
I didn't win any games, but it was a good night
none-the-less, though I think from now on I'm going
to have to make the rule that if it's my birthday
we have to play pictionary. For my birthday I got
a lot of nifty things, included in them were a couple
bags of rubber bands! i ask for them every year,
but never get them- I immediately added them to
my rubber band ball which is now basketball sized
and 100 times as heavy- though it seems to bounce
almost as well as a basketball. The outer coating
of bands was getting very old and had started to
snap so it was starting to look pretty shabby....
it's now sixteen years old!

Teresa and I continued Staycation 09 by going to
Atchison- well, we really set out to take a scenic
tour of glaciated N.E. Kansas, but we got to Atchison
and stayed there the entire afternoon. We saw several
historic homes, toured a couple- including the Amelia
Earhart childhood home, we also took in the railroad
