Just got back from a meeting at church. There are always a couple of people who just seem to be an expert at everything.

Are you surprised by that? We have a woman in this building who claims she knows everyone who lives in this part of Boston. When I moved in she asked me how come I chose to move to this section. I told her I was born and raised here. "How come I don't know you?"

"Because I am a very private person and I don't like people sticking their nose in my business." She has never asked me anything personal since.

Just let the dogs out for the last time tonight, and then a strong skunk Oder came in the window. DS ran out and watched the dogs until they came in. No one from our house got sprayed, but someone did! Nasty, nasty smell!!!

PF, thoughts and prayers going out to you and everyone involved. As others have said, "stay safe". I am proud of you for volunteering!

I am having a snack for my pills as I have to fast from now until the morning when I need to get a full set of blood tests for the cardiologist. My snack of choice is pretzel crisps with onion dip - pretty tasty!

Gathering my thoughts after a particularly stressful several weeks. We just moved our offices to another building (our offices happen to be "City Hall") I was in charge of buying new furniture for employees and the lobby and break room. I was also in charge of tonight's reception and ribbon cutting ceremony. One other employee and myself did all the food and flower arranging. I'm "pooped"!

It's a small town, so we didn't do anything fancy, and since it is municipal government we really didn't have much of a budget :(.
