Crazy orange bugs keep eating my hibiscus.
Callaway stays in the yard when he is told to. =)
TGIF! David, Stephanie and Wednesday are getting into town this afternoon. They are staying the weekend to help us celebrate Travis' birthday. I have Monday off for Labor Day and Travis has Friday through Monday off. Partly for Labor Day, partly for his birthday. It will be a nice break before the storm. By storm I meant the turnaround (working 7 12's) at his work, but I guess that goes for Tropical Storm Gustav too. I sure hope that storm does not interrupt the barbecue we have planned for Sunday. Otherwise we may be evacuating with David and Stephanie!

- The alarm on my cell phone went off, reminding me to call the vet clinic first thing (Callaway has a recurring rash that needs to be taken care of).
- Callaway rammed his toy bone into my shin when he decided it would be better to squeeze in the two inches between me and the bed instead of the three feet between me and the dresser.
- With my eyes half-closed to ward off the blaring light of the bathroom, I stepped on a small cockroach with my bare heel. (And proceeded to have heebie jeebie feet until I got my shoes on.)
- Fought off three mosquitoes at the bathroom sink that must have weaseled their way into our home on Callaway's back after his morning potty break.
Ugh. Is it Friday yet?
PS - We (everyone in the Gulf) are keeping their eyes on Gustav. Wouldn't want him making any surprise stops!

For dinner, we went to a nearby Mexican restaurant that I have been to frequently with Sara and Dana. They have pretty good food and awesome (and cheap) margaritas. The whole meal cost me $13! Although, Sara did pay for my margarita in return for driving. I guess her car has been ravaged by the rain from last week. She started a paper route and that gets delivered rain or shine. It was a nice evening, that didn't end too late. Good thing, cuz I got up bright and early the next morning to mow the lawn...

Deep sea shark that was thought to be extinct, until live specimen was found off the coast of Japan
Not much is known about this deep sea shark
This Atlantic fish can get as large as 8 feet and 300 pounds.
Walks on it's pectoral fins
This fish also walks on it's pectoral fins. What makes it so unique is it's two forward facing eyes.
Kiwa hirsuta, or yeti lobster
This crustacean lives around hydrothermal vents in the Pacific Ocean.
That's all for your marine biology lesson for the week. Anyone have something they think should be added to the list?

There is a place nearby where we went that gives horse rides up and down the beach. I was a little nervous to see what Callaway would do when he saw the horses. He did bark at them, but the horses didn't even seem to notice him.
We left a short time later. There were big, dark clouds heading our way and we were hoping to give Callaway a bath before the rain started. We wanted to grill out, but when the rain started immediately after giving the dog a bath we changed our plans to broiled kabobs. Callaway was exhausted and slept the rest of the evening away. He wouldn't even lift his head when we called his name. I love it when we are able to wear him out that much. Sometimes I feel like it is next to impossible.
It was a perfect summery day.

Three DNA tests were run to confirm the species. One was inconclusive, one said 3% human and the third said 96% opossum. So, chances are, this is not Bigfoot. It's a opossum. Or maybe five opossums? Look at that photo! It's a cooler full of hair. What I want to know, is where did that 3% human come from?!?! Are they going to look into these guys? What the hell is in this box?!
