We have a visitor!! And dumb state laws.

It has been very hard to find time to blog lately
because. . .
we have a visitor!!
Our daughter Camille is in town with her baby Carly and we are having a very good time!!
When your only grandchild lives in another state, you have to take advantage of every minute you get. So this week we have been enjoying our baby time.

Here Michelle (my youngest) is holding Carly after a long day at church.
Sorry, the color is so bad in this one but my flash wasn't working. Here Carly and Grandpa were having some fun playtime together before Grandpa had to run off to another meeting.

Oh, but look how happy she is to see Grandma!!
We have a couple more days, and I don't have to prepare a seminary lesson for Friday so the next two days will be action packed!! :-)
Now a couple fun things I came across on AOL the other day. Dumb state laws. Probably none of these are enforced, but that they were ever signed into law is pretty funny.

An anti-crime law in Texas requires criminals to give their victims notice, oral or written, 24 hours in advance of the the crime they're planning to commit and the nature of that crime. So how likely do you think it is that someone will send a letter, "Dear Miss Smith, I would like to break into your house Friday night and steal your jewelry."
It is mandatory for a motorist with criminal intentions driving around the state of Washington to stop at city limits and telephone the local chief of police before entering town. Obviously those who wrote this law have relatives in Texas.

Chicago forbids fishing while sitting on a giraffe's neck. While we can't imagine why someone would be riding on a giraffe's neck in Chicago, let alone fishing, it does make sense why it isn't a good idea.
No one may cross Minnesota state lines with a duck on top of their head. Is this really a problem?
In Waynesboro, Virginia, it was once illegal for a woman to drive a car up Main Street unless her husband walks in front of the car waving a red flag. Personally I think this one was put into law by a beauty queen who just wanted her own parade.
Next door neighbors may not lend each other vacuum cleaners in Denver, Colorado. Word of warning . . . if you ever move to Denver, be sure and bring your own vacuum!
Have a great week!!

Oh I love the picture of Carly with Michelle. That makes me so jealous! (Not to have a baby... just to hold her :)
And I love that smile for grandma! Oh my she's a happy girl!
