Busy Day in Minnesota

I thought now that Aunt Kathy and Uncle Steve are getting older, they would be spending more time at home taking care of me. WRONG!!! Uncle Steve came home about 3:30, but stayed home just long enough to take me out, and then he was off to the dentist. Aunt Kathy got home about 4:30, but she had nothing but school work to do. Uncle Steve got back from the dentist right after Aunt Kathy got home, and he had to work on getting their income tax returns ready. Then both of them were off to a meeting about a Level II sex offender that lives over by the elementary school. Neither of them looked very happy when they came back. I overheard them talking about how this guy was a Level III sex offender, but his status was changed right before he moved here. The police chief told the crowd that meeting that he was going to look into the happened. It sounded like the crowd was pretty upset. Aunt Kathy is angry that she doesn't feel safe enough to take walks in the neighborhood.

Now you think they would stay home, but no. Right after dinner Aunt Kathy went out shopping. When she got home, Uncle Steve had her sign the tax returns. He was going to take them to the mailbox when I gave him "The Look!". It worked, because I got to go for a ride in the Prius. We went to the post office and I got to see Uncle Steve put the envelopes in the mail. Now he looked really unhappy. Apparently there is no return coming to them!

Finally at 9:00 pm everybody decided to stay home. I'm working on the blog, and Uncle Steve is sitting in our Lazy Boy. We will both be asleep soon!

As you can see in my video, I have not lost my touch at begging. Uncle Steve dropped some of his dinner on the floor tonight (They were all rushing too much!), and I helped him clean it up right away. It wasn't on the floor more than 10 seconds.

Hope you had a nice trip. I can hardly wait to hear what you are going to see!!!

Love,

The Speckster

Hi Speck,
Sounds like you'll need to kick some sex-offender-ass in our neighborhood this summer. We made it to Beijing after a mere 26 hours of travel. We were pretty lucky to have all of our flights on time, and have discovered that Korean Air is SWEET! Way roomier seats, constant beverage service, three food services, real silverware, hot towels, personal entertainment systems, and all in coach! Not to mention, they're flight attendants all look like little dolls, and they're dressed like they just stepped off the paris runway, no polyester in sight! When we got to Seoul, we had a three hour layover, and they had ladies playing Korean instuments, and teaching Korean Crafts in the Cultural center at the airport. Mom and Grandma made a traditional Korean print, it's super neat.

The best discovery of the day was that at the Korean airport, they have buttons in the ladies bathroom stalls that say "etiquette bell" on them. We assumed that they were for people to press if in need of assistance, but Mom just couldn't help her curiousity. Grandma was intrigued as well so they both went into one stall and pressed the button. You won't believe it! It makes a fake flushing noise! You can press it over and over (we tried it, to make sure) and it sounds like flush after flush. Must be to camouflage any unseemly noises that a proper eastern lady would find embarassing! Considering, that you poop in public, and have even had the act posted on your blog, we don't expect you to understand this whole modesty thing, but it was neat nonetheless.

We're having Auntie Jenna post this for us, because we can't get onto blogspot in China. Apparantly, censorship is alive and well over here! Hopefully, we won't get in trouble for this email about it! Anyway, you can keep posting, and she is copying and pasting the page to us each day. She's a super nicey. It's pretty late here, so we're just going to go to sleep, so not much more is going on. We'll check in with you tomorrow! Take care of AK and US, and be sure to keep them entertained!

Love, Mom and Dad
