who does that?!

The other day I was doing some grocery shopping at Kroger (they are the company that owns Smiths...you probably recognize the brand, but they have their own store out here, its nuts!). I had finished my shopping and was waiting in line to pay when some old (60?) man tried to wedge his cart in front of me. I had put my cart in line and then walked around to the front of a display to check it out...about 2 steps away from my cart. So when I see the sly guy coming I stepped over to my cart to assure my place in line. So there he is with his cart at about a 90 degree angle to the line trying to make it look like he is next. No way buddy! So I'm just standing there staring at him waiting for him to say something like: "oh sorry I didn't see you there" or "oops excuse me" or something! He said nothing and I'm standing there trying to remain calm even though I'm really bugged that he thinks he can scoot in like that. All this time (of about 1 minute) I'm trying to think of something to say to him but for some reason I couldn't come up with a polite thing to say like "oh excuse me sir, I'm in line here." So I just stare at him, and he stares at me. And then finally he says "you weren't in line here were you?" And I manage to get out a somewhat coherant "Yah" with a little attitude. And then you won't believe it! He proceed to argue with me that I was actually "over there" looking at something so I couldn't have been in line! Who argues about that! So while my insides are raging I decided it's not worth arguing about so my reply was "you can just go ahead and go" with lots of attitude and sass. And the old man doesn't even say thank you, he just nods at me as though I just realized that I was wrong! I'm trying to just LET IT GO. He only had a few items anyway. It is finally his turn at the check out and it takes a very long time since he can't find the box of cigarettes that he wants. Finally the find it after all the people in line behind me have stormed off in impatience. The old man breaks out his debit card and takes forever on the machine. Eventually in rings through and as the cashier hands him the receipt she says "you wanted 2 cents cash back?" And the old man says "yes" as though it wasn't weird at all! He chose the optional amount of cash back and entered that he wanted 2 cents! Who does that!!!!!!! What a psycho!

Its been so long!

Well it has taken me forever to get this done, but here it is. School is going great! I only have a few more days till the summer semester is over, in fact finals are next week. I need to get studying! Bonny is having a good time hanging with Zibby and the neighbors. Zibby is the same hyper dog, except now he feels like he can boss us around. Here is a video clip of him getting mad at me for laying on the floor and covering my face.

Here are some other pictures of what we have been doing.

These are a bunch of pictures from a lounge that is located inside the business building. Everyone loves Coke here, and if you even mention that you like Pepsi you will be mocked.
What a bunch of freaks!

Our Camera has a fireworks feature on it, so we just had to try it out, and what better time then the 4th of July. THE U.S.A ROCKS!

We found this little gravel hill, and Zibby just wanted to lay on top of it, so I went up with him.

These next pictures are from a little trip we took to Atlanta. We saw the Temple, the World of Coke museum, the aquarium, the Olympic park where the bomb went off, and the CNN center, but by the time we decided which one we actually wanted to go into there were lines of at least an hour, so we decided to go back another time. Enjoy the pictures!

Hard to have a blog with no Internet!

It seems we've taken a near month long leave of absence from posting on our blog. This is because we don't have internet access at home. I (bonny) use the neighbors computer to check my email and Brooks is too lazy to update the blog while he has the computer all day at school. :)

Things are going just fine for us here in Georgia. I must say that I am seriously sick of the bugs! I'm glad I have Brooks and Zibby to kill/catch them all for me. Yesterday I walked outside to water my gardent pots and looked down at my legs and there were 3 mosquitoes feasting away on my sweet blood! I even had repellent on!

We will be back in Utah for a family wedding in August. We are so excited to see everyone!!

I still haven't found a job yet but once that happens we will be sure to get our own internet service and we'll be blogging like crazy! We've got some fun photos and video to share!
