It's not anything I know about. Perhaps it was a community donation.

Excuse me, I'm headed back to the washtub and scrub up a few extra monitors and keyboards folks keep spraying their beverages onto...
the eloquent truth of your words touches my heart, pf. just look at how the kitties have taken to your 'new' rocking chairs--little gal all curled into a round ball of breathing fur, the other stretched out full length, hanging off the seat pillow at both ends. don'tcha just wish you could sleep like that--not a care in the world...

so, what's up with cute stuff here, anyway? are they here on a trial visit, or has the deal been sealed on the adoption already? responsible and deserving as we are, i wasn't at all sure the spca would approve us for adoption of one of their animals.

has anybody heard from .40 today? the men have been hard at work around back, but i'm terrified to venture out there, myself. i only wish bubba hadn't loaned out his pneumatic nail gun. in the hands of them darrell boys, that rapid fire nail gun is more like a loose cannon. even in fun, they get to playing, and....

Got some bad news to report. Seems that Schneider was running his mouth instead of paying attention to what he was doing and nailed his hand to the roof. We had the fire department, the police department, code enforcement, and Bubba out at the building today.

The good news is that Schneider is going to be OK. Pity he didn't nail his mouth closed. The fire department got his hand pried loose and the rest of him down from the roof. The police department ruled the incident as self-inflicted accidental injury and our permits were on the up-and-up.

The bad news is Bubba fired Schneider for operating a nail gun while intoxicated. Apparently, there was more Irish than Coffee in his thermos. Our roof is only half finished.

Bubba and Darrell the younger will finish up the roofing job tomorrow. This is could have been a lot worse. I think we need to cook up some BBQ for the crew's lunch tomorrow and tell them how much we appreciate their hard work.

What kind of gun... A roofing gun? Nasty nails with those barbs from the wire spool... Clip the head and pull on through...

I've got twenty pounds of potatoes I can make into salad for the Que party for the guys. I think we should have it on Saturday, give us some time to get full participation.

I could do baked beans. Any thoughts? I imagine .40 and "love2Q" will take care of the actual grilling. I know that "Texas BBQ" is a little different that grilling ;) so they should be able to cover all the bases. ;)

My grandchildren live about 2.5 - 3 hours away(depending on traffic). And yes they are young, DD kept me waiting for them for quite awhile ;-) I wish I could see them everyday. BTW......I have a 20 yr. old step-grandson too!
My oldest grandchild is 35 y.o. My youngest great grandchild is 4 y.o. My youngest grandchild is three y.o. All together there are 17 of them. I think.

I saw all the hulabaloo when I was waking by with Teddy. I wondered what was going on. I would have stopped, but that is when Teddy decided to do his 'thing'. There was also another dog coming up the street and Teddy just had to investigate.
