Would YOU trust this face?

Angie described Rakes today as being like one of those characters from the 80's movie "Gremlins": you know, arms and legs flailing about, while jibber jabbering all the time. At the mail man, the pizza man, UPS guy, and the random "pretty dirl" walking their dog down our street.

After spending the day with my two Aunt's, both around 70, he came home good and wound up: this was the outfit he chose to wear to church tonight. Needless to say, the footies did not make the cut.

I came up with this title after hearing, for the umpteenth time today, a loud THUMP, followed by Trot's unmistakable wailing cry. Finding Trot sprawled on the floor, and Rakes a mere foot away, I ask "What did you do?" His response? "Nothing Daddy: him just fall down."

Now tell me: would you trust that face?

Daisuke took the hill vs. the Indians and Paul Byrd at Fenway tonight, and, well, it did not go according to plan. After taking a 2-0 lead, Daisuke left with the score 6-2 Indians. The Sox loaded the bases in the 7th with nobody out, but somehow, nobody scored. Papi missed a granny by about 2 feet, then popped out to end it.

Final score? 8-4 Indians. I hate to lose, but anytime you can take 2 out of 3 from the 2nd best team in the AL? It's a good thing.

Bring on the Yankees this weekend: I'll roll with Wake, Schill, and Beckett any day of the week.

With his recent school and kitchen knife exploits - NO LOL

Ted D said...

Yeah: me neither Carol!

Little hooligan: he takes after his Mom, you know?

Carol said...

Does she wear funky outfits to church too?- lol

Ted D said...

Yep: but you didn't hear it from me.

Tex said...

Thats as innocent a face as Ive ever seen one. You've got your job cut out for you Ted. Rakes is a free spirit who marches to the beat of a different drummer...Heck he has his OWN entire BAND :)

as far as losing tonight...feh...we can't expect to win all the games. and to quote a 80's 'singer' "2 out of 3 aint bad"

Carol said...

And if I did hear it from ya, you were quite ill at the time. Goodnight!

Ted D said...

I know Tex: I'm getting myself ready. My only consolation is the boy will break many hearts along the way.

In THAT regard, he takes after his old man!

As for the game, we took 2 of 3 from a very good team: that kind of record gets you the pennant every time.

Bring on the MFY's this weekend: we can go ahead and bury them now and not wait for September.

KAYLEE said...

I am increasing the size of Zoe's cage as we speak in preperation of Rakes visit!
Dude, Ralph Nader AKA Peatmoss has gone and done a gainer in the kiddie pool over on his blog!

Stacy said...

Ted, he was still wound up at dinner at church! He was everywhere, all at the same time!

Remember, there are people on here that knew you when you were young. Don't go all crazy about how many girl's hearts you broke. :)

Carol said...

P.S. My answer had to be NO, especially after watching the (new) Omen movie earlier this week in a feverish stupor - yikes.

You and funky-clothed Rakes have a good day!

Ted D said...

Carol, are you comparing my child to Damien? ;)

Stacy, you are not supposed to be talking out of turn: you want me to start talking about your Barry Manilow album collection?

Ted D said...

Christine, if you read this, Yardbarker (I think) won't let me post at your blog: says I've got to be signed in, but the comment box says I am. I commented a few times, but it deleted it.

Any suggestions? Keep in simple: remember who you are talking too.

Christine E. said...

HI Ted:

I am sorry you are having such trouble! I looked into a bit and saw that for some reason, some of your comments were going to my Spam filter--and I have NO idea why..:-(

You mentioned Yard Barker--is that how you are accessing my site? from Yard Barker?

Let me know and I will talk to our IT guy...

Again, sorry!

Ted D said...

Christine, A little box popped up and it said "Yardbarker needs a user name and password for you to access this section" or some other technical gobblygook. Anyway, looks like it's working and anyone who reads your comment section will now KNOW I'm a blithering idiot, so all is well. :)

KAYLEE said...

They only have to read your blog to find that out:-)I hate offdays.I am stuck watching an astros game oh how fun that is!

Christine E. said...

Your not a blithering idiot...LOL I will let my IT guy know about the Yarkbarker thing--major weirdness...

And if your insane, you are in good company....:-)

I reallyREALLY hate these fricken offdays...oops! Can I SAY fricken??

:-)

Go Sox!

Ted D said...

Is that not strange? I was getting highly frustrated. Sometimes on blogger, you can't get your post to come up, or comments won't go through. It's usually when they are doing some kind of upgrade, so that be what was going on with yours.

If you can't beat 'em, join 'em I guess Christine!

Hope the wedding plans are going well: is it June you said?

Christine E. said...

July 13th..:-) Going well...the planning is really ramping up now, I am so glad I did a ton of stuff early..:-)

I just tried to go from my link on your site to my page and logged in and posted...and it worked fine..But I will let my IT guy know..can't have people's comments getting sucked into SPAM world!

Ted D said...

I'm gonna try to remember the date this time. You got someone to put gravel in your hubcaps and put shaving cream all over your car?

Scotty, who posts here? His buddy hid in his and my sisters trunk and rode the whole way to the hotel that night with them: so check your trunk before leaving!

Christine E. said...

I just got a brand new Jeep Patriot 3 weeks ago, no one better mess with it! LOL

Its Friday the 13th...Easy to remember....:-)

Who does Scott have in his trunk? the chicklets?

Ted D said...

No chicklets: they were not even a glint in his eye back then.

See Christine, if I haven't told you: Scotty's OLD. REALLY old.

Christine E. said...

What, like 40? LOL

Ted D said...

Since he has decided he's too good for me anymore, I'll spill:

50. Though in his defense, he acts 14.

And Tex, you don't look a day over 25. I'm talking about Bubba.:)

Christine E. said...

and my fiance' would kick my but for that 40 remark--he just turned 40 last weekend...LOL

50? I got sox older than 50!

tehehehehe

Ted D said...

I'm just glad he lives 1200 miles away, or I might be in a little bit of trouble.

Glad you found this nuthouse Christine: you fit right in. :)

Christine E. said...

Yep...:-)

Carol said...

Ted - Let's just say if there's a sequel, Rakes might get a phone call -lol. And speaking of ages, I'm the same age as you!

Christine - I also had trouble at your site 1-2 weeks ago. I was going to give up, but it worked for me yesterday. Friday July 13- How unique!

Stacy said...

Ted, for the record, I think Scottie is only 49. You're probably in VERY big trouble about now.
