It's about time!

Contagion has somehow managed to have yet another blogchild! No one is sure how the unwanted stump of the Bad Example Family keeps managing to do this.

Here's a big WELCOME to Petey's Powderhorn!

  • His first post indicates he has a taste for Long Pork.
  • Although claiming to have graduated college with a 4.0 GPA, his "Traditional Sucky First Post" is actually his FOURTH!
Head on over and say Hi!

The Fantastic 4?

It all started with Richmond and her Mind Reading Super Power.

Then came Teresa who discovered she had the power of Super Speed!

Apparently all of the stomach issues Contagion has been having is all because of a mutation which has given him the Super Power of Manipulating Fire!

Finally, to complete the Fantastic 4, I will reveal my Super Power!

Your Superpower Should Be Manipulating Electricity

You're highly reactive, energetic, and super charged.
If the occasion calls for it, you can go from 0 to 60 in a split second.
But you don't harness your energy unless you truly need to.
And because of this, people are often surprised by what you are capable of.

Why you would be a good superhero: You have the stamina to fight enemies for days

Your biggest problem as a superhero: As with your normal life, people would continue to underestimate you

A Family pasttime is destroyed

Yesterday it was 60 degrees here in Northern Illinois. We were under all kinds of weather watches all day...but no one expected this:


A video was taken by a local 13 year old boy of the tornado, which you can view HERE. Thankfully, no one was killed and there were only a few minor injuries. Just as everyone began to breathe a sigh of relief because it was over, we found out that Edwards Apple Orchard, a place where an estimated 225,000 people visit between Labor Day and Thanksgiving EVERY YEAR was destroyed.

My family and I go here every year. We enjoy the delicious Apple Cider donuts among tons of other wonderful treats, there is a kids play area with a pirate ship, maze and several tractors that the kids can play on. There's a huge barn with hundreds of antiques, including cars, tractors, farm machinery and even antique cider presses! In fact, just this fall Clone got to watch employees of the orchard making apple cider by hand. This local news report shows some of the devastation.

Going to Edwards Apple Orchard is a tradition for many families, and not just in this part of the country! The owners hope to be back in business by the fall and I for one will be anxiously awaiting any news on this.
