Where are all the homies?

I guess everyone was busy this weekend... we had a Walking Dead marathon at our house since I have never watched the show and wanted to see what the fuss was all about...now I'm hooked. I just started to watch season 3 tonight and it's cool that the show is filmed about 30 miles down the road near Newnan, GA. They are always looking for extras ...maybe I'll volunteer to be a walker

Hope everyone has a great week

i have a note from mom to explain my absence.



my computor is going on 9 years old and i hate using my ipod.
had so many issues with getting it to load the past few days.

and then i got it running and a big storm came through my area.
bad rain, lightening and that type of horrible weather.
was trying to post and our power went out.
had wind gusts of 58 mph.....

thankfully it came back on and was able to watch walking dead.....

and get back here now.


you know i am never away that long from the homie thread...

so, can i come out of the corner now?


was thinking about goofy figment and how she was having fun in the Big O...

did read this evening that it rained at dhs on saturday and some peeps remarked about all the rain that day.

do hope that gf is having a great vacation!



i think kittengal wins the prize of having her tree up first.
one of my sons is whining about getting our tree up now.
i keep making excuses.
don't want the cats in the tree just yet.

thanx homie!
i'm good to go now that our power is back on.

horrible storm today.

the temps were about 55 and poured rain sideways at times.
i went out to walmart for groceries around 2:15 today and about got blown away.

tornado sitings just south of me.
think the one that touched down killed 5 people.

wind is picking up again off and on tonight but no tornados in my area now.

the Bears game was suspended for 2 hours due to the storm.
but, it continued and Da Bears won.
(which surprised me as they have 5 men out on medical)

Mac,
So glad you are ok. Heard about all the tornado damage in the midwest, mostly in Illinois. Scary. We had a line of thunderstorms roll by last night. High winds and heavy rain. As of 6am, it was almost out to sea. It's a balmy 67 degrees today. With all the moisture from the rain last night, it's almost too warm. Leaves and some branches all over the place.

Hoping there will be an AP rate the third week in August. The current SMSM rate for my stay is not at the rate I'd like it to be. I know it's going to be alot busier than it was last year at that time.

And Mac, resist. No tree up yet! I can't believe the local Walmart and others are already selling trees. All the stores now have holiday music playing and decorations up. It's not even the end of November yet. The week after Thanksgiving is when I start to get into the holiday spirit.

Oh, and Mac, it's time to get a Mac to replace the PC. You'd be amazed at how fast the new computers are.

Hope all are well, safe, and enjoying the day. Off to drink my tea.

I could live with that career move! Find it fascinating how all those 'brits have grasped the accents so well.

mac - we got the side-ways rain late last night...keep telling you there is no need to share! lol The wind blowing so hard the windows in house were shaking but didn't lose our power or satellite

i'm sick of shopping/cleaning for thanksgiving invasion, cooking way more fun.

I've had one heck of a weekend.

Wowza!

I've helped pack and pack and unpack the small items at the new house.
Also went to Kingston to take a tour of the Kingston Penitentiary which has only been shut down six weeks ago. Ate food and more food. Even had a date last night.

I've come to work to rest. LOL

I stay up late to watch Walking Dead. Love that show and I don't even like horror stuff! I would totally volunteer to be a walker!! How awesome would that be?? You should definitely do it!

So, I was contacted re: a possible job that I applied for months ago. A good $2.25 more per hour but about 5 hrs less per week. Still, I'd make $30 more per week and work less hours. But what to do with my son is an issue.. I don't know.

Going to a screening ( which I guess you do before they bother interviewing you) tomorrow. I'll find out more then. This could open the door within the school system for a full time job that I really want.

I dunno.. More money = more vacations to me!

Bahaha!! Could you imagine! LOL
I'll post a photo later tonight of the Machine Shop at the prison, to show why I wanted to go. Many of the buildings are almost 200 years old, and I wanted to check out the masonry.
