Communication is key

When ordering something for a special event it is always recommended to communicate clearly what you want. Plus of course it is equally important to make sure the company/person you order from understands exactly what you are saying and what you desire.

Otherwise you might have an interesting surprise like this cake ordered from a Walmart bakery.

I assume the conversation in the Walmart Bakery went something like this.

Walmart Employee: "Hello, how can we help you"
Customer: "I would like to order a cake for a going away party this week."
Walmart Employee: "What do you want written on the cake?"
Customer: "Best Wishes Suzanne" and underneath that "We will miss you".
Walmart Employee: "Got it."

It's looking a lot like Christmas

About a week ago when we left Hot Springs, VA there was a lot of snow on the ground and for a while it even looked like we might be stuck there. By about 1pm we decided to give it ago and Amy took a picture of me focusing on the snowy roads. It certainly looked a lot like Christmas.

My way or the highway

Dr. Kevin Ade, a veterinarian at Middle Valley Animal Hospital in Hixson, TN lives on Pope Creek Road near Highway 11. He has several dogs that have attacked and chased runners and cyclists on Pope Creek Road, and after a few folks who got bitten filed complaints with the local police, Ade came up with an interesting solution. Warn the cyclists, because keeping the dogs on a leash or within an electric fence would really infringe to much on his own rights. Plus if you run there, you're shit out of luck.

Plus since Dr. Ade apparently knows that his dogs are out of control should he not be worried about the safety of his dogs too? Or does he truly just care about himself?

Inconsiderate parkers

Right in front of the new Greenlife grocery store and the new Rock Creek Outfitters location, there are several parking spots set aside for pregnant moms and also for low emission vehicles (LEV). Each of these parking spots is very clearly marked but apparently either people can't read, don't understand what Low Emission Vehicles are, or are basically super inconsiderate folks.

Here are a few pics of some of these inconsiderate parkers.

Pimping it in Virginia

I went with Amy to Hot Springs, Virginia for a few days and on Tuesday night we got to go attend a black tie event. I love dressing up and I think Amy and I look great together all pimped up. :-)
