I'm having fun playing with my new e-book reader, though I've decided that I'm going to have to come up with a short, snappy name for it, since it's a bit bulky to keep saying e-book reader whenever I talk about it. Angel #4 started messing with it and is now enjoying The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, which is nice. At first she said she didn't need to read it because she saw the movie. *GASP* Now, don't get me wrong, I love The Wizard of Oz movie and have adored Judy Garland since I was a little girl (I love singing You Made Me Love You at the top of my lungs along with Judy) but watching a movie version of a book and thinking you know the story is flat out heresy. The movie is never, never, ever with a cherry on top, as good as the book. It's an irrefutable law of man and nature. So, I'm glad to see that my daughter will now learn about silver slippers and Winkies.

We got the good news from Angel #1 that his checking account is safe, as is the money in it. As a precaution, he's going to put the majority of his moolah into a savings account and only put the money he needs to pay bills into his checking, so if this happens again, there won't be as much money at risk. Thankfully, this turned out to be a free, though nerve-wracking lesson about life and its possible suckitude.

Last night was Market Day at Angel #4's school. We got to see a talent show put on by the students which was a lot of fun. Then, after buying tickets, we could walk around the school and purchase merchandise made by the students, food or donate tickets to the various 'street musicians' who were showing us their stuff. There were door hangers, bug jars, seedling trees, starter tomato plants, midway games and all kinds of things to do, along with a whole lot of noise and random, running around kids. #4 got together with a few of her friends and had a musical quartet. They played in a corner of the gym and collected a good share of tickets. All the money made went toward student centric things like field trips and fun things for the school itself. All in all, a fun, family filled evening.

Glad A-1 got his money back. I hope they catch the rat who did it.
