The Great Ant Invasion

Late yesterday, we noticed this massive army of black ants swarming over our steps and up the side of the road. Thousands and thousands of them.

They rolled over everything in their path.

They didn't harm anything except insects - they did eat the army of small ants and any other bug that got in their way. I was really hoping they would find and eat all the leaf cutter ants. And that they would not find their way into the house. They didn't.

Kellie, the leaf princess, and Moe, who didn't care for the leaf on his head.

Kellie and I finally watched the pirated copy of Marley and Me. It was very obviously video taped from the second row of a movie theatre - one of the front row seat backs could be seen in the lower right corner of the screen all through the movie. The sound was off a little, sometimes it sounded like it had been recorded in a different room - possibly the bathroom, having that sort of hollow sound that comes from hard, tiled surfaces. The sound also didn't quite match the video. And parts of the video looked flat, one dimensional. This is the first movie I've seen that has so obviously been pirated.

Kellie thought the book was much better than the movie. Guess I'll have to read it.
