I know the feeling. I had to place an order today with Amazon. It didn't qualify for free shipping since it was a company that sells through Amazon that would be shipping it. I almost cancelled the order. But I sure went on the hunt to see if Amazon sold the same product from their stock. Nope. Had to place the order. Grrrr!

In spite of the rolled eyes, your sense of humor is showing through.

Yes indeed!

(And if I won the lottery, a zero day work week would suit me fine!) I'd go back to the voluntary work in a heartbeat!

So, I saw that you missed out on some hunting yesterday, because of hailstones - did you have any luck today Pac? What do you hunt?

I don't hunt anymore, Katy. I was just going to go punch holes in paper. I like target shooting (and the occasional varmint).

Oh, and no luck shooting today either. It gets sunny then it hails ten minutes later. Weird weather.

My sense of humour is what keeps me (relatively) sane Addie! Thanks for noticing!

Punching holes in paper - like at a shooting range? I have actually done that! (In Tucson - it's not the sort of thing you can do very easily in the UK).

Mind you, I have discovered that there is a shooting club locally and I did think I might consider joining when I got a job.... so... I may do some more investigation now! I'd forgotten about that!

Sorry about your weather Pac. It sounds very British as it happens! (And since we are having mini tornadoes and now a storm is heading our way from the Gulf of Mexico, I guess we are getting a little of your weather in exchange!)

Yes, you did! But it's okay! Sanity is WAY over-rated!

I can shoot where I live. It makes it handy.
You should join the club if you like to shoot. It might be fun.

Very wet weather indeed. It's getting downright sloppy over the past few days. Next weeks looks to be better.

This is me shooting. (My friend Teresa (whose hand gun I was using) was standing behind me for obvious reasons!) Oh and though you can't see my face, I think the straggly hair and scrawny arms are an obvious identifier!
