Daddy has been writing towards a new movie-themed series that we'll be doing in October. It's changed directions several times over the past few days, which has sort of forced Daddy to do roughly twice the amount of work that he normally does. This one's off to an odd start, and it hasn't even begun yet!

Each player gets six cards, except for the player on the dealer's right, who gets seven. The second card is turned up, except on Tuesdays. Two jacks are a "half-fizzbin." A third jack is a "shralk" and is grounds for disqualification. With two jacks, one wants a king and a deuce, except at night, when one wants a queen and a four.
If a king is dealt instead of a jack, the player gets another card, except when it's dark, in which case he'd have to give it back. The top hand is a "royal fizzbin," but the odds of getting one are astronomical.
The goal of this game may be to get a "kronk." I think.

She slept well last night, sleeping in until around 9:00 or so. Actually, Daddy pretty much did the same. The only unfortunate thing is that someone pre-set the alarm for 3:00 in the morning or something like that - so here we all are up in the middle of the night trying to figure out what that noise is!
This morning, Madison is watching "The Mickey Mouse Club" and "Handy Manny." This is really all we need satellite or cable for - that, and the Rose Bowl and Thanksgiving Day Parades. Seriously, we watch movies and such that we buy, but we hardly ever need to watch anything else.
Today, we'll see Ba-Ba and Nana once again - but not before dropping by our favorite book store, just a few miles down the road. This is a huge place with discount books, and it is somewhat of a tradition of ours to stop by and check it out on the way down to Florida - or the way back.
It should be an easy and simple day today. Looking forward to it, just for the rest!

Madison slept a little on the way down, but she's been awake and excited about our traveling. We're at a hotel here, where Madison has watched the movie "Cars" with us on the television. She's so excited about being in a new place. She can hardly keep still!
We didn't opt for a crib, but instead have put her in her own queen-sized bed. The catch is this: we have to build up barriers along the sides of the bed to keep her from falling off. We've done this in the past, and it is always amusing. It's like an episode of "MacGyver," where we're searching through the room to find stuff to create a makeshift blockade all along her bed. Fortunately, there's always a surplus of pillows, so we use these as well.
Today was a great service at church - can you believe that was this morning? Such a long day. It will be easy to go to sleep tonight.

The sofa arrived today, and it is really nice. So nice, in fact, that Mommy and Daddy decided to have movie night at the new house. We packed up some popcorn, drinks, bowls and a movie of course - and headed over to the new house to relax on our new couch in front of the new television.

Here Madison sits in the back of our car, with a bit of added safety. There's a play on words there if you know anything about football - which I don't. Actually, I know a bit: our Grid Iron series starts today, hence the leatherhead football helmet again. Also, college football began today in this area, so there's a great deal of enthusiasm about for the old pig skin.
