Oliver and Duncan’s 2nd Christmas

Oliver and Duncan, our cats.

Yes it has been over a year since we got Oliver and Duncan. These two little fuzzballs are still bouncing all over the place and are all the more excited that it is Christmas time. Since they were born outdoors and I suspect in the back alley of some BBQ joint because they don’t give us a moment’s peace when we have BBQ.

Having a tree indoors is all sorts of fun for the little guys. Oliver spends much time under the tree playing with the little gold jingle bells. Duncan speeds through the living room around the tree and presents and back into the bedroom. We were lucky enough when we first got them to have them sit still long enough for this picture.

If anyone in North Attleboro is looking for a pet please check out the cat room at Petsmart where Allison, Tara and Shelby all volunteer or go directly to the North Attleboro Animal Shelter.

Drew Meets Longtime Idol

Drew and Optimus Prime at BotCon 2003

Andrew “Transformer” Bennett (yeah I actually signed that in my eighth grade yearbook.) If you didn’t know I was a geek by now then you haven’t been paying attention. This past year I went to the Ultimate in Geekdom Conventions. The Official Transformers Collectors Convention in Chicago, IL at the Hyatt Regency.

This year is a special year for Transformers, it marks the 20th anniversary of the line. There are some fantastic things happening in that little shop in Rhode Island. For one thing fans will finally get their ultimate desire. A Masterpiece Optimus Prime. The Masterpiece Optimus Prime is just about the best and most accurately constructed Transformer ever. Optimus comes with his signature plasma rifle, a “Megatron” in gun form, his Energy Ax from season one and the Matrix of Leadership. This year Hasbro is making the Transformers Alternators line which will feature scale model contemporary vehicles with distinctly Generation 1 themes. Already announced have been a Subaru WRX Rally Car (SmokeScreen), a Dodge Viper (Sideswipe), a Jeep Wrangler (Hound) and another Subaru WRX (SilverStreak). If you were ever a Transformers fan or want to tell your children about the greatest series of toys ever, now is the year to get these toys.
