I am working my third shift job as a ''Staff Attendant'' at an assisted living facility. It's been a slow night. No emergencies yet. So I am getting acquainted with people on D.C. Lucky to keep myself busy doing whatever to pass the time. Looking forward to the weekend . I took tomorrow as a vacation day to get a three day weekend. My B.F.[wife] probably has the weekend all planned out. I don't care as long as I am off.Shift over 8:00 A M. Everybody have a nice day. mysterychef

I'm hanging out with my house guests looking at local of the coverage of the Black Forest fire. These friends live in Black Forest and were evacuated. They have been here since Tuesday night. This is terrible. Two years in a row I have had friends displaced and losing their homes. 360 homes have been destroyed so far in this fire.

Do they move back and rebuild on the same spot, Chopper?
How do they reclaim their property after a fire burns through it?

I just got back from Wally World. Now I'm half wondering how I managed to spend 165 bucks and half wondering when the rain will stop. I think I'll concentrate on the weather, as the other one stings.

I wish this storm that is hitting the East Coast now would turn and hit Colorado. It has a lot of rain in it. More than enough to go around.

I'm sitting on my tooshy resting my foot. Danged toe hurts more now than it did a week ago. Guess it's time I listened to the expert (thanks PF ) and give it a break. OOooo wait, might have already done that! Pretty sure it's just a dislocation even though I know for sure that toe is still located in the middle of its friends - it keeps reminding me.

Stop pushing yourself so hard and listen to your body. You are a super person, but you haven't reached The Superman level yet.

Had to take the car to an out of town dealer to get a recalled part replaced. Almost 3 long hours it took, not counting the drive to and from. I did have a nice lunch at a nearby restaurant.

Got home, hopped in the pool with the Kindle and floaty thingy, and was invaded by gnats and small children. I used this locally made bug spray, but it didn't keep either away.
