CJ after having a "burr" fight with his brothers. As you can see, I do believe he lost the fight, but had a great time nonetheless.

And what I would like to point out in this photo is this:
That would be my grey hair shining through that beautiful reddish color hair. Based on this photo, I really think I need to join Deb in her RootWatch '09 project. I wonder if she is still taking on this project, though, as she hasn't posted about it lately.
You might think that my GRIPES part of the title would be those roots. But it's not. I can take care of that in a quick 20 minute process, which I will be doing whenever I get around to it. Based on the photo, that should probably be pretty soon.
However, the gripe is about my extended family, of course. My mom's birthday is this week and my family and my brother and his family are taking my parents out to lunch/dinner. (Should that be called linner? If breakfast/lunch can be brunch, maybe this meal SHOULD be called linner.) Whenever we plan anything on a Sunday, my SIL asks to have it early to mid afternoon, but after church is out, so they can get home and get settled for the school week. So I call her this morning and tell her 3:00. Her response? "Why so early?" WHAT? Really, if you had a specific time you wanted to meet, why the hell didn't you just tell me "X time would be good for us" or just plan the damn thing yourself. But don't get snarky with what I have planned unless I have blatantly done something you did not request!
