We went to Lowe's earlier. DH got mulch, so he's busy prettifying the front garden beds and I'm enjoying a drink on the porch. I asked him to get some rum last week and he came home with mango rum! It doesn't go well with Coke but it's delicious with pineapple juice!

I can't move. My cookbooks wouldn't fit in five boxes...

I think this thread needs to be renamed "What SHOULD you be doing?". I should be getting the last of the screens in the windows. That also involves washing down the frame inside the track, and the window in-and-out. I'll be happy if I get half a dozen in. 17 windows are nice...until you start to wash them. And I wasn't even counting the sun room ones!
Well I had to get down there anyway. Rob had this vacuum that he liked to use, a Dirt Devil that had black bumpers on it and wouldn't you know that thing would leave black marks on the molding! I really want to write dirt devil and ask them what they were thinking. Rob insisted on using that vacuum because it simple, he hated my canister vac. We've since bought a non-marring vacuum for him to use! A magic eraser took care of the marks, but had to make sure that I didn't rub the paint off.

More like getting rid of every other book I can't believe how much I'm getting rid of.

Yuck. That's no fun. Hang in there, Ogress.

I had to work over, and today I got a voicemail message from the Highway Patrolman about the accident I sort of saw. He's got the court date.

Bleah. I have to go as I was a sort of a witness. He emailed me a copy of the accident report, and where I said in my witness statement/report I had to fill out, I said I thought he was going at least 50mph or more. The HP's report said 60 at first, then 50 at impact with the power pole.

In a subsequent report that's confidential, the HP officer said he was tested in the hospital for drugs and/or alcohol and he tested positive for both alcohol (.17) and for two controlled substances, Vicodin and Xanax, for neither of which he had a prescription.

The legal limit in NC is .08. That guy has a long hard road ahead of him.

So, I'm writing everything down as I remember this to take with me to court. Yuck. I just hope that, eventually, he'll be okay.

The skinhead that Pirate caught molesting the kid in the ladies room, took a plea. Pirate won't have to testify. He wanted one more chance to get him.
