Why I'm So Excited About Our New Garage

I don't know what I've been doing lately; obviously not updating my blog :)

Eric got the okay to start playing again, so he won't have to sit around at tournaments anymore. In two weeks we'll be headed to Lawrence, Kansas.


He's glad to finally get the boot off.  It made his size 15 foot look like a 20.  Look at that thing!


My next "do"



And I'm saving this for last because I'm so excited. 
We're getting a new garage!  Well not a new one, but we're adding on.

Here's what it looks like while they're working on it.


This is what it's going to look like when they're finished.
The car will come up into our bedroom and Larry will get in and then lower himself back down to the garage.



Just kidding about that part.  He wishes.

Okay, so why am I so excited about a bigger garage?

Let me tell you why.

Because my husband bought a new car!  Another one.  Well not a new new car, but a new old car.  A '68 Corvette.  So now we have three old Corvettes that will sit in our newly renovated, air-conditioned and heated, expanded garage.

Here's the car being loaded onto the truck headed to St. Louis to our new garage


Not sure who this is.  The truck driver?


Why am I excited about his new old car that's going to sit in the new garage-that-already-holds-his-five-cars-but-not-mine-so-in-the-winter-when-it's-snowing-his-cars-are-all-toasty-but-I-have-to-go-out-in-the-cold-and-scrape-off-the-snow?  That garage?

Because...

He's buying me


an iPad!

That's why I forgive him am so excited.

And I leave you with this cartoon from yesterday's St. Louis paper that mentions my teeny, tiny 'ol nothing of a town where I grew up.  Who woulda thought it would become so famous :)

Where did he buy the 'Vette? I have a friend who buys and sells Vettes and that last picture looks an awful lot like where he lives.

Ha ha ha ha laughing too dang hard!!
Yay for the ipad, but you should still negotiate a parking spot in the garage. they have those lifts where you can stack ywo small cars on top of each other. he should do that so his child bride can have a toasty parking spot for her car. wink wink.

Keep negotiating and enjoy the ipad and let me know how it is.

Steph: Larry has talked about those stacking lifts before. That's pretty funny.

Wait he got a Corvette and you got an iPad? That doesn't seem fair to me, unless he got a really good deal on that car. Still, I think I would prefer an iPad to a Corvette. Have fun with your new toy!

Alissa, I know, that's what everyone is saying, but I really, really wanted an iPad, so it works for me :)
