Several months ago my R registered to compete in a “Tough Mudder” event. She asked me to join her but I declined. Well, this past weekend Baby T and Baby L and I flew into NY to attend the run and to cheer R on. Shortly after arriving at the venue we were informed that it was a 10 mile run with 20 obstacles. Although R and most of her friends/teammates were nervous they ran, climbed, jumped, splashed and crawled their way through every mile and, much to my surprise, through every obstacle. I have never been so proud in my life. I am the runner, jumper, climber in our family. R has never participated in anything that even resembled a run through mud. She and her sisters have always been my pride and joy and once again she has amazed me with her effort, her enthusiasm and her perseverance.
In an earlier post I mentioned the fact that I love to build and I said I would post a pic so here it is—a photo of the 6 foot high, 9′ x12′ deck I built a couple of years ago.
Look everyone, Danny’s at it again.

Things are not going as well as expected with the little girl and her family. An anonymous source tells us that the little girl’s grand-godmother and her four-legged son were spotted leaving the house earlier today. The source went on to say that he overheard the grand-godmother say “baby, you’re too smart to continually potty on yourself like that”. She then closed the door behind her and walked away laughing and shaking her head.
Silly News 3 contacted the grand-godmother and her son at their residence, and although they refused to comment on the matter, they provided these photos of the little girl’s treasure box.
Can you spot the difference?
I took this photo a few weeks ago when I visited my childhood hometown. I struggled to get a good shot of it, through the thick bushes that have taken over, as my daughter watched for snakes and cheered me on. Perhaps I will return in the winter and get another shot after the leaves have fallen from the trees and the grass and weeds have turned brown.
