Pope Benedict XVI

Today the new pope was voted in. I admit, I am not a practicing catholic, but do believe somewhat in my religion. With that being said, I was glued to the television for the past couple of hours as they were electing the new pope. I watched the white smoke come out and the mass confusion of "Is it really white? Why aren't the bells ringing? The bells that we here in the backround, is that them?" It was confusing. But, there was no confusion with the Bells in St. Peters rang. The part that confuses me / surprises me is that he is 78 years old and pope Benedict 15th had the shortest reign as pope of all time. Interesting.... In other car news, I took the Grand Am to get the safety, and it FAILED for the first time ever. We have to replace the ball joint on the driver's side. Rob gets the truck safety by the end of this month also (next week, AHH, April is over!). Here's hoping that one passes! We should hopefully have the bike back on the road soon too. More vehicles in this house than there are people! Colby really needs to learn how to drive!

The day Colby gets his license (and asks to borrow a car), you are going to be sobbing and saying that you wish he was three again, I know it!!
