Any way...back to the title post,
Yesterday Captain Jack(Gabe) and the "nice Calypso"(me) were sailing the seas in the Black Pearl (a ship sandbox) , when Captain Jack jumped out of the ship to kill the "mean Davy Jones" ( side note: Gabe's pirate world consists of mean and nice versions of each character)
After ridding the world of the "Mean Davy Jones" , he started walking back to the ship and the following conversation ensued:
Me: "Shouldn't you be swimming back to the ship, Captain Jack?"
Gabe: "No...I'm just going to walk on the water".
Me: "Well...I thought only Jesus could walk on water".
Gabe: "Yeah...Only Jesus and Jack Sparrow!"
Kinda sums up just where Jack Sparrow ranks right now in Gabe's World

I have a lot of stories to post but it will have to wait a little while longer because I'm hard pressed to find the time. I haven't taken may pictures but I did get our first snowfall.

What matters is what something is, not what it is called.
From Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, 1594:
'Tis but thy name that is my enemy;
Thou art thyself, though not a Montague.
What's Montague? it is nor hand, nor foot,
Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part
Belonging to a man. O, be some other name!
What's in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;
So Romeo would, were he not Romeo call'd,
Retain that dear perfection which he owes
Without that title. Romeo, doff thy name,
And for that name which is no part of thee
Take all myself.
With that said, I for one love the name that Gabe has decided to name his little sister. Not that Jake and Andreas choices aren't good. Names like Sophie, Riley, Presley and Campbell are all great names, but the name Gabe has chosen and insists on, is one of a kind.
Yep,...you heard right"Chapstick" or should I say,Chapstick Etheredge

P has had to take all her clothes to the laundry mat for the last 2 weeks because her washer hasn't been working. She tried every thing, checking the breaker box, making sure the water was working etc... She called Sears to come to fix it and they finally came this last Tuesday. When P returned home that day from work she asked her mother if Sears came and were they able to fix it. Her mother informed her that they did indeed come and they were able to fix her problem. P was excited and asked her Mother, "What did they do to get it to work?" Her mother replied, " They plugged it in!"
