trick or treat...

for halloween...
mj was snow white.

it was interesting watching her.
when we first we out...
she wasn't comfortable being in the dark...
and wanted her grandmother to go with us.

she said trick or treat at the first house...
but at the other houses...
she would say 'heyyyyyy'...
as they opened the door...
and 'thank you'...
as they let her select treat after treat.

she came home with her pumpkin half full of treats.
that she doesn't eat...
or should i say...
had never eaten...
before today.

unfortunately...
she did learn the word 'candy' tonight.

accident...

we're almost home...
and there's an accident.

this is a very dangerous offramp!

two lanes exiting from eastbound 80...
merge with two lanes heading west on 37...
merge with two lanes exiting from westbound 80.

that's six lanes of traffic...
going 65+ mph...
all converging on two exit lanes...
and two lanes of hwy 37...
and of course they're all criss-crossing each other.

really?
who's brilliant idea was this?
