Yep, and they weren't even nice about it! Gave me 14 days notice and then worked me right up to the last minute.

At least I was able to find my way to the car with my new GPS!

You are just adding to it.

I came across this while poking around the net.

The Flying Farmer Suet Pudding - My Great, Great Grandmother

An old fashion recipe. Interesting.

You need to teach Myrtle and the rest of the girls to form a V and do some synchronized wing flapping!

Last one to the road is a rotten egg!

I'm just back from a late lunch out with my son and his wife, the one whose company folded the week before Christmas. She's got another job already. O happy day! I took them out for a celebratory lunch on my new Social Security raise. Beats the no-raise-at-all from the last two years. Where's Geico's little Maxwell pig, to provide the "Wheeeeee!"?

First I'd have to convince them to come outside in the snow...then I'd have to have several (probably about 20) loaves of bread to motivate them....

After 30 minutes of shoveling (the driveway is long and about 8 inches of snow had fallen) (so I basically had shoveled about 12 ft of it), the neighbour swung into the driveway with his plow. I was really glad to see him. It took me another 45 minutes to chisel my way into the van. I've parked it at the end of the driveway (which is about 300 ft long) since more snow is forecast for tonight. I can handle shoveling the snow left by the plow and the 10 ft behind the van to the road. But 300 ft is quite daunting. The blade is on the tractor, but I'd have to charge the battery and see if I can figure out how to drive it--I haven't driven the tractor for about 3 years--and back it out of the barn without hitting one of the girls. I should've moved the van before the snow started...I should've gone out to cover the van when freezing rain was forecast. I am looking forward to having a car with heated mirrors and heated seats. And, having my garage back.

I need to get some work done. So please stop making me laugh.

I just got a phone call from management. The woman that lives over me is our resident bag lady. She is the one with the shopping cart you see going around the neighborhood looking in trash. Well, it seems she has brought roaches into the building. We all have been complaining about her. Now maybe they will do something done about her. I am so p.o. They are going to spray my apartment next Tuesday. I haven't seen any yet.
