you know you're in for a fight when the ear flaps were down.

did anyone else's mom put you in a layer of socks, then plastic bags, then a layer of wool socks and into your workboots for waterproofing before going out to play?

My mother used bread bags instead of plastic bags and also a couple layers of socks on our hands if the mittens were still drying over the heating grate in the kitchen.

Did you look in the most obvious place? In the glove compartment? If you can't find it, your Registry of Motor Vehicles can issue you another one. Of course it will cost. But doesn't everything?

The car is in another state 13 hours away. I think I accidently left the title at Mom's house. I checked, it's 5 bucks for a duplicate, which is cheaper than gas or a plane ticket to go back and pick it up.

Good morning everyone. I am feeling much better. I do have just a miserable cold. It is not the flu. Late last night The Pirate came and brought me a two litre bottle of ginger ale. Luv that kid! It is now empty. He will bring me another one tonight when he comes to watch DA with me.

I have a two rib pork chop in the freezer. The Pirate pulled it out so it would be thawed by the time he got here tonight. He wil stuff it, sear it, and then toss it in the oven to finish it off. I won't be eating any of it. I am just not hungry. I am going to peel and soak a couple of potatoes in water. Then while the chop is baking, he can cook the potatoes. I also have a bunch of McCormick gravy packets. He can have his choice.

Well, you all have fun playing today. I am heading back to bed. I have be at the top of my game tomorrow. Management is doing a walk-through to see how the painter did. So far, these are all the places I have found paint where it shouldn't be. And I am not through. Everytime I find a spot, I add it to the list. I will be giving a copy of this list to each of them when they walk through the door.

Wow, Addie. That painter was nothing if not thorough. He covered everything!

Good luck with that Addie.

Why did they schedule painting after the new bathroom floor? I was always taught to start at the top an work down (except when power washing outside walls).
