Who Knew?!

A short, but funny blog for my family who remembers these events.  :)

I come from a family of inventors.  I invented the Pet Rock, but as we all know and love to tease my mom about it, we never made a profit from the invention.  Instead, Gary Dahl became a multi-millionaire from the Pet Rock. 

My brother, Mark, really invented the XBox Kinect.  When he was about 4 years old, he would write in the air to communicate to us sometimes.  I thought my mother would never recover from laughing about him doing this.  Now, people are communicating with the XBox Kinect by signaling to the system through the air.

  1. O.K., O.K., it's all my fault you were all so good looking instead of rich.

    Dad and Uncle Shelby took a piece of plastic one time and turned the hose on it and David, Deanne, Kim, and Jill played on that thing all afternoon. They now sell for $12 bucks a box too.

    And...Mark wanted to be a professional tree climber and Connie and I laughed at him.

    SO...don't discourage anything your kids want to do. Sell rocks out of the street or act spastic writing words in the air.
