Siblings, Snakes and Stuff


This is our favorite pic of two of my siblings doing their thing at our family's country home in Virginia. We try to go down and visit our g'mom and aunt on the weekends while they're down there in August. Today's visit was pretty eventful:
  1. We found an all-you-can-eat Italian buffet and stuffed ourselves w/pizza, pasta and sticky buns. Then, we ended up at Maggie Moo's for ice cream. I don't know how they both stay so thin! I asked my brother if I needed to roll him out.
  2. My sister tried to kill a snake. It was about a foot-long garter snake or something--thin, black, w/a yellow or white band near its head. The snake was like, "AAIGH!!" as my sister took a 2 x 4 and got to whacking at it. My brother & I just stood by--intrigued and rooting for the snake to escape--which it did.
  3. One sibling tried to kill a snake, another was trying to take out the town of Mineral, VA. While at the gas station, my brother lit a cigarette. Dear God. "Well, I walked away from the station!" he said. "Still too close!" my sister replied.
  4. My brother loves to take the curves and straightaways a little faster than what I'm comfortable with. I put my iPod on and closed my eyes. Opened them again and a cop's sitting on the side. Oh man. At least the officer was very nice. Yikes.

As you can see, LOL, there is never a dull moment with my siblings...

Sounds like Aug in the country with my cousins - not enough excitement, so they have to go and make their own. Yikes!

Me? I just like listening to the crickets...
