Jan,
glad to hear you got some justice out of this..That silly fool is getting just what he deserves.

Venting

I just received my American Express bill and there were two more Fraud charges. The total is now three and the amount is $1,114.91.

They will send me a letter showing how they dispute the charges.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry! I just spent a whole five days sorting and preparing my currently unneeded clothes for storage. Every thing was landered mended, packed in to storage bags sorted into season and size (does every woman have clothes in four different sizes?) It was a long job....I have three large hanging rails of clothes, many of them tat, some of them seriously not and worth a bit of money! So today I go to lift the bags to put them in my mother's attic.....my storage space while we live in Italy!, and the bags broke and the clothes came tumbling out. At exactly this time, as the two bags I was carrying split, the dog chased my two caats in to the room and everything is a mess again......well these two big bags worth. I have gone and bought some strage boxes now, but they are different sizes so its not a simple transfer job. Oh well. I beter get the ironing board out again. guess what I am doing for the rest of the day!

Wow lulu, you had a crappy day. That would make me want to pull out my hair.

My vent is that I have finally caught the cold/flu bug my kids brought home. I fought it for a month and this week it found me. My chest feels like I have a 20lb cat sleeping on me and I have a fever that won't quit. To top that off, I got to attend a memorial service last night while on my dinner break from work. Then this morning I got word that the mom of another friend is failing and may not be with us much longer. Sigh.

Has anyone else noted that with the winding down of the summer months those folks that are ailing wind down their lives as well? We have lost people the last three Octobers. I'm beginning to dread fall. I used to love to see the leaves change and sort of felt like fall was a time of beginnings. Related no doubt to going back to school and buying new stuff etc. I don't feel like that anymore.

I'm with you Alix. My mom called yesterday afternoon to let me know that my uncle (my Dad's last remaining sibling) will probably pass today. Just a couple of weeks ago (on Mom's side) my uncle's wife passed.

I'm sorry about your sickness. Maybe it's because you need to stop all the constant daily grind and take a rest!

My vents today.....
Vent #1: I'm still having neighbor issues. I bought the owl, as MicheleMarie suggested, and the next day, the neighbor had covered it with a brown paper grocery sack. grrrrrrr. The owl's still there and she feeds the wandering rodent population on the parts of the wall she thinks I can't see.

Vent #2: I found even more stuff that the previous owners of this house didn't fix (that was in the contract that they had to). I'm in the process of submitting estimates to their vulture of a realtor to have them cover the costs. Looks like at least 2k. And, all must be done before the 4th, which marks the 1 year of ownership status.

Vent #3: I'm getting a cat. Why is it that everyone and their mother has free kitten signs up constantly, till I need a cat? The shelter wants $80 plus another $40 for spaying. oy!

You need some pampering too buckytom? We'll see if we can hire a nice Swedish masseuse for you just for the day. Lets go!

Just venting. My computer crashed a couple of weeks ago. Because I live in a small, rather remote community, it isn't easy to get computer support. So it took over a week to get me back in business. Then, of course, I lost my code for this site (the only one I participate in, but I like it and missed it). I was also trying to coordinate my turn at "bunch for brunch", which is a lot easier to do on line than by telephone calls. Oh, I also write a column for the local newspaper (I don't get paid, so it isn't a big deal). But the paper was trying to contact me via email to identify people in a photo. Computer guy did show up, but the entire thing was a pain in the pattootie. Now when a pop-up comes in and says "windows update", I will ignore it.

I wondered where you were Claire.
Glad everthing is now working and you can visit with us. I sometimes get so frustrated when things go wrong with the computer and help just saunters along at it's own pace leaving me to fret and fume
And yes ignore those "Windows uopdates"
