My dad sent this to me this morning and I enjoyed it thoroughly.
Just post your answer and I will post the answers within two days time.

5th Grade Math Problem

Good luck!

This is a 5th grade math problem. If you can open the spreadsheet, you'll
see it's a very small list of people who have gotten the correct number.

This is not a trick question. This is a real math problem so don't say that
a bus has no legs.

There are 7 girls in a bus.
Each girl has 7 backpacks.
In each backpack, there are 7 big cats.
For every big cat there are 7 little cats.
Question: How many legs are there in the bus?

After Adam's very funny post I have been apprehensive about writing another one because let's be honest, it was funny!!

My friend Annie Ellsworth and I are in the Red Mountain Choir and the choir was celebrating 10 years at being an organization and sang some of the songs that have been performed the past ten years.

Here are some pictures of the eventful evening.

A Spooktaculer Evening

Nerds and rednecks unit Halloween to take a stand against all those unjustified stereotypes that have plagued them throughout history. Joe the Trucker crossed class lines to ask Velma Dinkley to celebrate the spookiest night of the year with him. She took one look at his amazing dental work and just couldn't say no. Surprisingly, Velma was the one that suggested a night of egging, TP-ing, and forking yards and houses while the mild mannered Joe had to talk her down to handing out candy to the neighborhood goblins and playing a few rousing rounds of Rummy-Kub. Later, Velme decided to notch up the exciting evening by suggesting a scary movie, "The Exorcist." It turned out Joe couldn't handle a thriller either so they settled on the ever popular "Arsenic and Old Lace."

Well, enough of the role playing. On the hunt for great costumes, Heather saw two that included "Bubba" teeth. An instant in. A couple of minutes and a few ingenious costume innovations later, Velma the Nerd and Joe the Redneck unleashed themselves upon the world. Sorry to say, the redneck wasn't a pleasant sight to see for those toddlers seeking to fleece the town of its goodies. One of the ghouls even fell over and sought the protection of their mother when "Joe" answered the call to dish out the tasty peace offerings. We had a wonderful time and hope everyone had a safe and happy Halloween.

Trivia Question: Who is Velma Dinkley?

On a side note, we both discovered that our favorite part of the holiday is carving pumpkins! What better way to celebrate Halloween that involves sharp implements, some creative artistic ability (or at least the belief in having any), and the torturing of vegetables for our enjoyment?
