In this photo released by Melynne Stone, Jamison Stone, 11, poses with a wild pig he killed near Delta, Ala., May 3, 2007. Stone's father says the hog weighed a staggering 1,051 pounds and measured 9-feet-4 from the tip of its snout to the base of its tail. If claims of the animal's size are true, it would be larger than ``Hogzilla,'' the huge hog killed in Georgia in 2004. (Melynne Stone/AP Photo)

Talk on the Internet is that the picture is fake. But I saw the kid on the news tonight with his dad and they had the skull with them. It was twice the size of the normal skull next to it. They got over 800lbs of sausage from it! Daddy use to raise sows but I don't remember them getting that big.

Andy at Bat

Strike one. Ball one. Swing and a hit! Right to the second baseman who threw him out at first. I know it's bad cell phone video, but it's all I got. I'm sure you can hear Lynne screaming in the background. We played Brock Thursday night in Burleson and Friday night in Mansfield. We lost both games so our season is over. But Brock is last years State Champions.

Prom 2007

This is Connie and Andy outside Connie's house. They were already tired of taking pictures at this time and so this was an endurance for them as they made their way to the car.
In the group of 10 that Andy and Connie went with, these are the girls. Don't they look gorgeous?
The guys were looking down at me because I was on the floor. Then they decided to lean back just as I took the picture.
This is the big group picture. Starting at the left: Andy, Connie, Garrett, Karla, Blake, Courtney, Dan, Jodie, Robbie, and Erin.

This was a picture that had to be taken. Jodie and Andy are so much like a brother and sister and we had to get a picture of the two of them. They have been best buds since the 1st grade so we couldn't resist.

Prom was not what they expected but I think that dinner at Saltgrass Steak House was a high point. They have all said that they hope next year's is better. I think the guys would have preferred to stay home and watch movies. They all looked handsome and beautiful dressed up.

Bi-District Baseball Playoffs

We went to Waco Friday night for the first game of the Bi-District play offs against the McGregor Bulldogs. That's Andy, second on the left. He scored twice during the game. There was a small mishap though. Yeager, one of Andy's friends, was stealing second and slid head first into the shortstops knee. He lay on the ground awhile and then got up and jogged off the field. His arm did not look right. Once in the dugout he complained of chest pains and kept passing out. They called the ambulance to come get him.

It's a bad picture but you can see him on the stretcher being wheeled to the ambulance. He had separated his shoulder and has a bruise covering his entire chest. He was at game 2 the next day.
We won the first game 12-9 and got home about 1am. Game 2 was at 10am the next morning.
That's Andy on third getting ready to go home. This was a close game, but we ended up winning 2-1.
The team mobbed our pitcher. He pitched the entire game and got 8 strike outs. And he's a freshman. Next weekend we will go to the regional playoffs.

Lynne's Field Trip

The 6th grade took a field trip to the Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas to view the Body Worlds exhibit. Lynne said she thought it would be gross, but turned out to be really cool. I think she had too much fun though. That's her below dissecting a pig heart. I don't like the evil grin on her face. I have hidden all the knives in the house.
