Remember back when Doofus Diesel the dog tangled with a skunk and he STILL smells when he gets damp? Well, WE did his part to make sure this will not happen again. Last night he hit a skunk on the road...with MY van...which now stinks worse than the dog! It happened so fast he didn't even realize it was a skunk he hit until he smelled it, then he claimed he did it to avenge his dog. I told him that the next time he's going to go avenging, he should get out of the van and beat the skunk with a stick instead so my van won't stink so bad. It's been parked outside in the rain all day, I'm hoping for the best, but I'm not too optimistic.
Today was Solo Ensemble for Angel #4. She scored 1's on both her snare drum solo and her vocal duet and a 2 for her solo. The duet judge said that the girls owned the song, and she was right. They did beautifully. She was a bit disappointed on her score for her solo - if she'd received a 1 on that, she'd be going on to state. Well, there's always next year. We also enjoyed watching some other performances - there are some incredibly talented kids out there and it's so nice seeing a big group of teenagers, all dressed up and working hard on their performances. I wish those people who seem to think all teens are trouble would spend the day at an event like that and see the promise that's out there.
