A new career in the making possibly? A county lineman. Move over Glen Campbell.

Got to meet tinlizzie! We went out for brunch together, then sat around at the resort for a while chatting like old friends. It's so much fun meeting people you know from the internet in real life.

It sure seems like things made a long time ago work so much better than the new stuff. When we moved into our first house (1977) we needed a dehumidifier to help dry out the new basement. My SIL's neighbors (they were living in the same city as we were until they moved to FL) were moving to AZ and were selling the stuff they didn't want to move or didn't need. No need for a dehumidifier in AZ so we bought it. Have no idea of how old it was when we bought it, but that little gem sucked the moisture out of one of our basements for the 36th year.

Gotta love the lumberjack song, lol.

I actually borrowed my neighbor's deer stand one year when I had to replace the fixture. The self climbing kind. I made it halfway up and that was enough for me. I suffer from vertigo and the pole is in too open of a space for me. No way I could have climbed all the way up and been useful, especially with the pole starting to sway.

It's getting cold out there. I better get the snow blower on the tractor today. They are calling for 8" of the white stuff.
I also need to head into the city to the grocery store today. I am hoping they aren't "doing" anything for the holiday like they were when I went there the weekend before Halloween...
I'm going to buy my first whole turkey today. At .28/lb it seems like a real bargain. Look out freezer here it comes.

Making up the big holiday shopping list and getting ready to go out and fight the crowds. Costco, supermarket, liquor store, BBB. Too many stops. I'll be gone all day. Oh, wait. Add Trader Joes to the list.

And you waited until the weekend when all the working Joes and Janes will be out there crowding the stores and streets because...?

Is your SO going with you and it's the only time she can go?
