pumpkin pie yogurt

it's made by yoplait & i picked it up at wal-mart. it tastes more like pumpkin than most pumpkin products, but still has a little bit too much spice. yoplait also has some sort of apple pie/crisp thing that i want to try next.

wal-mart mini pumpkin pie & cake

had both not long ago. the pumpkin pie wasn't too bad hardly any spices to speak of.

the pumpkin cake was more or less the same, but tasted like it had a base of angel food cake.

both are about worth the 50 cents they cost.

dunkin donuts pumpkin doughnut

had once not long ago. it's a cake doughnut with a light glaze & while not horrible, it wasn't good. too much spice, IMHO. that's a common problem a lot of these pumpkin/pumpkin spice things have

dad's birthday 2018

"Your Birthday Predicts You're Independent"
Ever since you were born, you've loved doing your own thing.
You enjoy puzzles and games. Anything that stretches your mind interests you.

You are a quiet person - often lost in your own thoughts. Others find you completely mysterious.
You have so much fun thinking, dreaming, and planing. You hardly have time for friends.


same as my brother's. interesting

the (semi) great umbrella search

just a year or so ago my brother & i got cheep $5 umbrellas from wal-mart that are now coming apart. (well, just the stitching over one rib) so we decided to get new ones.

we wanted ones big enough to cover us (the old ones are 36in. which barely covers), folding type (because big stick types are kind of awkward to carry around) & not a crazy color or pattern.

after trying out some in wal-mart, we decided on the totes 42 in. in black (i would've gotten the black/gray alternating panels, but they only had that in the really big 55in.) even tough they're only 6in. bigger than the old ones, we hope it will be good enough to cover us.
