OK, so I go out to my car yesterday and find some leaves on my windshield. BUT right in the middle of the windshield, I find this leaf with what looks to be a pattern eaten out of it...and it looks like the Devil. Jessica thinks it looks like a happy cat or smiley face - not. I'm totally freaked out about it and don't know how to preserve it, so if you have suggestions, please list below. Should I list on eBay??? Should I keep it???

Mystery solved! Jessica and I couldn't figure out what this contraption was until someone brought us up to speed on the "AutoChalk" system for parking downtown Fredericksburg. This vehicle has 6 "eyes" that know when you shouldn't be in your parking spot any longer...and then...it sends you a ticket via US mail.

You betcha! Singer/songwriter Kara DioGuardi's written and produced pop/country tunes for just about everyone in the music biz (Faith Hill, Carrie Underwood, and Miley Cyrus just to name a few), guess she's at least professionally qualified to be a judge - but is she ready for the cat fight?
The Lost Trailers (Holler Back) spoke to us this morning about their new album being released today, but they wanted to through something EXTRA in it for YOU - FREE MUSIC!!! If you CLICK HERE, it will take you to their Myspace page. When you mention that you heard their interview on WFLS, you get 3 recordings not on the album and never heard before.

The Free Lance Star recently did an article about this non-profit equine rescue, so I thought I would score some major Daddy points with my Daughter and volunteer some time with the horses.
My Daughter is a major horse lover, and a big helper. After reading the article and finding out that Eagle Hill Equine Rescue needed volunteers I thought "2 for 1 deal". You can volunteer your time any time...1 day a year or many days a week. This place does some amazing things.
They specialize in young horses, some just 4 or 5 day old orphaned foals, which we hand raise to horses ready for saddle training up to the age of 4.
Mrs. Ann is in charge of this great "2nd chance" place and gave us an education along with an amazing experience. We were hooked after the first hour. My Daughter was grinning from ear to ear and my Wife and Son were having a great time to. Mrs. Ann said all the volunteers are meeting in September to have a special event to thank all volunteers - new and experienced. They plan on great chow, and entertainment. The EHER = Great family time, and it's tax deductable!
