"Cut, It, Out"

This week, Dave Coulier (Joey Gladstone from Full House) came to the Comedy Quarter in Neenah, so of course, we had to go! First, because I was a big fan of Full House growing up so it was exciting for me, and secondly, they have the best strawberry daiquiris I have ever tasted.
The show was great. I thought he might not be as funny, but he really was. And he was pretty family friendly, not any swearing. He said the word "genitalia" at one point, but that was it. He promoted his tour with some other guys called the "Clean Guys of Comedy", which is a group of comedians that are family friendly.
We also got to meet him after the show. I didn't think of him as a celebrity until I got to be face to face with him. The I realized that this guy is kind of a big deal...hes friends with John Stamos! So I clammed up and just said the same crap everyone else probably says to him, "I'm such a big fan" "I think you're so funny" "I used to watch you when I was growing up", blah blah blah. Not real original...but oh well. I got an autograph and we got our picture taken with him. He was a really cool guy. I would definitely go and see him again!

Purray Furray Murray

Meet Murray. The new edition to our little family. Hes furry, he purrs a lot (so hes purry) and his name is Murray, hence the title of this blog entry. We got him from Happily Ever After, a humane society in Green Bay. I picked him out because he was cute AND he was born in the same small town I was. I guess I saw it as fate.
My other cat Milo took a day or so to fully warm up to Murray, but Murray felt right at home the minute I carried him into the house. Milo greeted him with a hiss and then followed him all over the house while he explored. Here is a video of it, if you care...
Murray has made a nice little edition to our family. He is cute, lovable and loves attention. His few flaws are that he stinks when he uses the litter box and he likes people food too much. This makes it difficult for the people in this house to eat without him trying to stick his face in it, especially since he sometimes succeeds.
Now that Milo and Murray have become comfortable with each other, Milo has proved to be a great big brother. He is always giving Murray baths in between play fighting with him (Murray starts it). When Murray cries, which he often does over nothing, Milo is often found close by shortly after. So, any concerns I had about Milo and Murray not getting along were quickly diminished.
They can often be found in different spots like this, cuddled together in the bucket and towels we'd set out when our roof was leaking during heavy rain.

You can see more videos of these guys and whatever else I feel like posting on Youtube at
