Money Pure Money

Do you know somebody that is strangely yet awesomely good at everything involving
hand eye coordination?

I am the exact opposite of that,
 so everyone seems amazing when they can sink the eight ball, kill it in ping pong, hit a roll out in racquet ball or whip the fuse ball so fast into the goal no one saw it coming.

My idea of hand eye coordination is getting the spoon into my mouth with out spilling when
eating a bowl of ice cream,  that's the only sinking I do.

However, I am married to the guy that is strangely yet awesomely great at all of these things.
Pool, Fuse ball, ping pong, racquet ball and now... "dun, dun, dun" that's the drum roll

We can add Jenga to the list.

Before you know it he's going to be killing it at other board games, perhaps checkers and monopoly are next.

As his high school soccer announcer once said, as he blocked the goal by diving across the field

"It's money pure money." So you better watch it and maybe practice your Jenga skills.

Here's the link to Peter dominating the Wells Fargo Holiday Party Jenga Competition,
with just a flick of his well coordinated finger.

Reach For the Moon And You'll Fall Among Some of the Most Cheesy Quotes

Some find inspiration in an amazing experience
Some find inspiration in a person that leads by example
Some find inspiration in the beauty of  nature
Some find inspiration in the cheesiest sayings...

Now there's nothing wrong with these sayings, don't mean to offend if you are a fan or
let's face it maybe you have it posted above your bed, etched in a wooden plaque or tattooed on your arm :)

We all love em', they sell on plaques, we write them in cards, we post them to face book,
we recite them as advice but really they are full of CHEESE and that's okay because cheese tastes good.

Here's a few that come to mind...

"Reach for the moon and you'll land among the stars."

wouldn't have the same ring as
"Reach for the moon and your arms will get really tired"

"Fairy Tales do come true."

Ahh, the ugly step sisters are attacking me!!! If fairy tales DO come true, it may cause nightmares. We better watch out for the giant from Jack's magic bean stalk and the wicked witches broom.

"Live, Laugh, Love."

wouldn't have the same ring as
"Lick, Lounge, Levitate"

"It's not the years in your life but the life in your years"

doesn't sound as good as "Who cares if you are old you did a lot of cool shit?"

So while you ponder about your favorite cheesy quote remember "The best way to predict your future is to create it" and you should "Cherish yesterday, dream tomorrow, live today" and lastly,
"Bless this house." Amen.
