TOTD is me

...and I'm struggling desperately for something worthwhile to share. Granted, that could be debated about any of my posts, but it's been a pretty routine existence since my last post.

Re: Independence Day weekend

I'm at work today...sorta. I did accomplish one task.

Apparently I'm also getting closer and closer to curmudgeon status. Last night as I was trying to slumber around 10:30, some idiot was popping off fireworks. Mind you, even in the [more]

To think that my biggest goal at the time was to secure a summer job where I wasn't doing manual labor.

Re: Weekend Plans?

Nice sized lot. Do you use a push mower or do you have a riding mower?

I'm still using my trusty, self-propelled Craftsman mower with the Honda engine on it. I could probably justify a riding mower, but then I'd need a place [more]

Re: Weekend Plans?

I was too ambitious for my own good. Despite the fact that we live in high desert country, there's been plenty of moisture lately and therefore the weeds have taken off. I got up bright and early Saturday to begin the attack. I used the hoe when [more]

Re: Hey, Prof

It was a dream, other than traveling with the in-laws and by that I mean my type-A brother-in-law and his bratty teenagers who were (gasp!) unable to spend their entire week glued to their screens and had to actually interact with the world and the [more]

Well, the itinerary says Juneau, Hubbard glacier, Sitka, Ketchikan and finally Victoria, B.C.

Following in Phil's footsteps

...many years later.

We had an opportunity dropped into our laps and next week, we're taking our very first cruise...to Alaska!

I remember Phil talking about it and getting to meet RDW. I don't guess we'll be as [more]

It's been an interesting couple of weeks. Our dear daughter came to visit for her mother's birthday, which was wonderful and just this last weekend she celebrated her first wedding anniversary. People are correct, time speeds up as you move [more]
