Of course, there is still the option of my camper in CJ's front yard.
Is that the documentary thing from 40 or 50 years ago? I think I've watched that several times. Really cool.

Well, the snowblower still works. First time I used it this year. Only got 3" but it was the heavier stuff and I was being a bit lazy (so lazy that I chose to electric start rather than pull start) . Plus I wanted to burn up some of that older gas.

Randall, ever get the idea people aren't liking the penguins? Looks like they need to get out and get some fresh air. I like them, but was never accused of having good taste. You could do a Princess theme for them the next thread but ....maybe not

Been a crappy day around here today... Had to go to a meeting last night which involved getting about a half inch of ice off my windshield to go home. Had to go to another meeting this morning and just now finally getting to sit down at my desk and take a deep breath. DW sent a text earlier saying DS's fever is back and he's over 103 and now DD has a fever too, so they're going to the Dr. in about an hour. Kind of getting nervous, the Lady Spartans play in the Semi-State tomorrow afternoon. If I have to stay home with the kids, I obviously will, but I'll hate to miss that game. Just one of those peanut butter, beverly, give me a beer kind of days.



But this did make me smile a little bit:

I assumed as much... pretty easy to tell by the writing style. And the fact that the location was Fort Mill, SC. And the fact that the names in the sig belong to your family. But nicely done!

Sorry to hear that. I'd send you a beer, but it's going to be warm by the time it gets there.

Yeah, he fell for one of the classic blunders.

I've had a busy day today. Had an interview for a promotion this morning. Hopefully I didn't make a fool of myself any more than usual. Then I met Brian (middlepat) for a Nemesis Lunch since he was in the area. Photographic proof is on FB.
