Big Money, No Whammies!

We went to dinner last night with Jon's parents and two of his nephews. After dinner we opened our fortune cookies and mine said this:

Woohoo!! The first part of that is right so the second must be as well, right??


To help fate out a little bit, we bought a North Carolina Powerball ticket using the numbers on the back of my fortune...and all the other fortunes from our table as well just in case.

Wish us luck!


  1. wow! i hope this comes true!

  2. Wouldn't that just be crazy if it did???

  3. Ellen,
    I think at this point I must remind you on the verbal contract you entered in as the responded, i.e. Ellen Elizabeth Boeke Jurischk (you), in which stated, verbally, that you will share every and all lottery winnings with the family, i.e. brother ("in law", i.e. co-respondent Jonathan Jurischk Boeke, who is under the executive order in subsection I(a1) of the verbal contract which states co-respondent already agrees with and will adhere to all verbal contracts the respondent enters into without question) and nephew of the respondent. Percentage of share in the lottery winnings to be divided up is as follows by an exact quote by the respondent, "A whole shitload of money yo".
    (2) copies completed, (1) sent to respondent and (1) sent to co-respondent.
    No further.

  4. Matt - Your winnings are in the mail. Is a check for $0.00 legal tender?

  5. Lol! So i guess that means I owe you guys 1/3 the cost of a stamp? Better luck next time, the contract is binding for life.

I spy...

I was looking for directions on Google Maps today when I realized that Google had just added "birds-eye" views for Fort Collins. So, of course, I went to see what our home looks like. Much to my surprise, I found that Google just happened to catch us on the morning of March 29, 2012. Our moving day! So, you better think twice before deciding to run around naked in your back yard. You never know when the aerial photography plane is going to fly by!

Chickens Are Scarier Than Crows, Didn't You Know?

The garden is in!  If our Scarechicken does its job, we will soon have a nice crop of heirloom tomatoes, onions, hot peppers, green beans, basil, parsley and thyme! Huge thanks to my parents for their help getting the area ready. It was a jungle!


Yesterday, the Curious Souls decided to take the dog for a walk. We were looking for somewhere that we had not yet been before, so we chose the  Pawnee National Grassland.  There were two very short trails in the western part of the grassland near Crow Valley Recreation Area. We hiked them both in under an hour (I said very short, right?) and were left wanting more. So, eastward we went on our way to  Pawnee Buttes . Along the way, we discovered the  Cedar Creek Wind Farm  and plenty of wide open space. After the Buttes, we looked at the map and discovered that we were only about 20 miles south of Nebraska. And, to seal the deal, we noticed that just over the border was also the highest point in the state. Here we are at the aptly named Panorama Point.  While only 5,424 feet in elevation it did have some lovely, long, expansive views into the seemingly infinite plains around us. As far as either of us could remember, this is the first time we actually visited the highest
