I'm OLD and I can deal with that. Call me whatever you want, just don't call me late for dinner!

I'm practicing my goof-off technique. Getting close to the professional level where I might teach how-to seminars. Except THAT would require not goofing off. *sigh* The opportunity for fame and fortune lost.

My little garden has blessed me with a LOT of cukes (not on CWS's scale, but a lot for us!) so I'm making pickles. DH's company makes a spicy pickle mix, just add vinegar and water, so will give that a try. I also have some banana peppers scored from the teacher's lounge, which I'll pickle with some of my homegrown serranos.

There was a mutant zucchini in the breakroom, it was 12 inches in diameter and 2 feet long...I didn't see any CNA's in there so was scared to approach it. I think it might be the cause of the attrition rate in staff.

I agree. I've seen a few of those too.

I just got back in from my shooting range. I shot 50 rounds with my 1964 Remington .22. Five shots each group. What gorgeous weather to be doing something outside, but a little breezy. I finally broke down and stuck a wind flag (of sorts) up so I can start paying attention to the real wind and not just how it feels hitting my face or rustling the trees Just a 10mph wind will blow the bullet 1/2" at 50 yds.
Some misc pics.

If we ever meet you, I'm gonna be REAL nice and respectful to you! Maybe a fresh-baked pie or some homemade scones? Whatever, I never would want to get on your bad side.
