well isn’t that just dandy

The most random thing happened to me at a small town gas station in Burdett, New York. I went to the Dandy Mart to fill up and while Ben went inside to pay, while we were parked at the pump, I took this awesome picture. Anyways, I digress, I go back to the car and there is this guy using our pump to pump gas. I was dumbfounded by this and didn’t really know what to say so I just said “hello”. he responded with “oh hello, am I in your way?”…Wait what!?!? so you are going to come and sneak in the 6 inches between  my car and the gas pump and then nonchalantly ask if your in, my way? I seriously didn’t even know how to respond to this ridiculousness. So, I just went in and got Ben and let him take care of business.


Now isn’t that just dandy?


Jack Attack

Jack the cat is my aunt’s cat….kind of. He’s a stray in their area that my aunt feeds and takes care of that she would love to bring inside, but my uncle is allergic. So instead he lives outside, sometimes under their porch and is as friendly as a golden retriever. Jack has a personality (which that alone is strange for a cat) that is unlike any other cat I’ve ever met. Jack comes around as soon as he hears people talking and comes right up and hops right on your lap. Despite his long talons he is extremely friendly and loves being around people. You can’t get mad at his accidental clawing though, being an outdoor cat he needs it to survive.


Ben went outside this morning and barely sat down before Jack was in his lap.

Bringing Ellington to Burdett

I’ve been looking forward to this weekend for months and now it’s finally here! My aunt, uncle and cousins live in Burdett, NY right near Lake Seneca and this weekend me and Ben are on our way to visit and we are PUMPED!!! We will get to hang out with my family and relax. I’m not sure what we will be doing, but I’m sure whatever we do will be amazing because we’ll be with some amazing people!


Looks like someone’s excited!!
