It’s been a VERY long time since we have last updated. There has been so much that has happened I do not know where to begin.
I guess first we will get the bad news out of the way. 2008 we had to say goodbye to 2 long time members of the Murphy household. Mookie and Tiki have left us. Both had lived a long and loved life.
Now on to the good news. We have an additional family member. We welcomed Smokey into our home in late 2008. Smokey is a silver Bengal. Smokey came from Wendy’s sister Nancy who was in the business of breeding Bengals. Smokey got her name for the color she is but as most of you know we are fans of Tony Stewart.
Speaking of Tony Stewart we are glad to see he has switched back to Chevrolet for his new team! We wish Tony all the best in 2009. One of the reasons we are glad to see Tony come back to Chevrolet is that just before the announcement was made about JGR going to Toyota we had just purchased new vehicles. I have gotten a 2002 Impala and Wendy got a 2002 Monty Carlo. Both cars have all the same options such as sunroof and leather. Brandon has gotten his first car also with a 2002 Chevy Malibu. I guess we are a Chevy family now.
If you have an Xbox 360 or a Playstation 3 I highly recommend getting the game Rock Band. It is a great way to get the family together for awhile for some good fun. We have it for our Playstation 3 and had recently completed the “Endless set list” which was over 50 songs. We did take a couple of short breaks in the middle but ended up completing it in about 5 hours.
Last but not least Travis has joined the West Islip high school wrestling team. He has won more matches than lost and we have the videos to prove it!!!
