On a more positive note, Jevon and I went to the Skyvue Drive-In Theater tonight and saw Mall Cop (funny) and The Unborn (stupid). We also spotted a falling star right before the movie started which was kinda neat.

When I head to Victoria in a few weeks, I will be getting my haircut. Right now my hair goes down to about the middle of my back and I feel it's time for a chop. Here are some of my ideas:

Now, I have been to Odessa a few times and hadn't really noticed that there are giant rabbits around town that are all painted differently.
Me: Why are there rabbits everywhere?
Honey: Because it's West Texas.
Me: Hmm. Ok.
This is what Wikipedia has to say about these rabbits:
The jack rabbit has become the symbol of Odessa. This true South Plains animal has burro-like ears and a protective coloration which blends with the sand and dry grass of West Texas. His long legs can allow him to run as fast as 45 miles per hour. He is hunted by greyhounds. The Native Americans prized him for the food and fur. The rabbit was commonly used for food by many during the Great Depression. Beginning in 1932, Odessa held a rodeo for roping rabbits. In one competition, cowgirl Grace Hendricks roped a rabbit from horseback in five seconds and beat her male competitors. The unusual rodeo ended in 1977 because of objections from the Humane Society. Many businesses and residences about Odessa display models of rabbits.

I have been following Matt Logelin's blog for about 10 months. Matt lost his wife the day after their daughter was born. If you have a moment, take a minute and read about his journey. It is heartwarming, heartbreaking, and makes me appreciate Jevon a bit more each day.

If you will notice, Scout is a tad bit blurry. That is because he turns his head when he sees me coming with the camera. The only way I can catch him, even if for a split second, is to say in a really high pitched voice, "Scout do you want a TREAT?!?!?!". Click!
