operation blog silence

so it's March and that means my annual month off from blogging --

kind of like "operation radio silence"

so my tired body 393.50 hours in February ... will be working steadily for the next 46 days and 45 nights. 

until we meet again ....

think Spring
Be happy
Share kindness
Work less and
Play more

see you in April



the drug they use to make other nasty drugs

2 hours post consumption
I understand why

a moment

just a moment on a Monday morning ...

one of the flock has already called in sick ....

I'm day 1.5 into what I think is a sinus infection ....

but the blizzard of the century missed us (thank you Mother Nature)
I managed to work 103.5 hours last week and I don't think I irked anyone.
(or if I did -- it wasn't intentional)

got interviewed for the newspaper on Saturday -- argh.

wtf ...

sorry -- I will stop the swearing by letters in March.

2:15 am -- thunder and lightening.  WTF.   February 22.....

So according to past elders (generations) ... the first frost will occur on 6 months from the first Thunderstorm.  

August 22nd.  

Well, gee, that could be bad.

other gems to live by :

Always plant the garden on Friday and Saturday of the full moon in May -- start the transplants on Good Friday ...

Rains on Easter Sunday it will rain for seven Sundays!

New Week, New Attitude, New Leaf

yep, new week - new attitude .... or so I thought.

Started prepping for the Daylight Savings Shift in March so up and outta bed by 4:45(am) ... I went to bed early too ...

Got to the gas station for milk, ice and a carwash -- didn't have enough moola for all 3 -- purse and credit card were at the office ... I scrounged the truck for $10 .... and then ..... drum rolllllll

the car wash went wacky --
the flashing message board ...

drive in slowly
reverse back slowly

drive in slowly
reverse back slowly

drive in slowly
and this Diva got irked and reversed out rather quickly the 3rd time ... all the way back to the parking lot ...

epic fail.

refund from the clerk ..

truck is still filthy -- will pull it out of the garage when the rain arrives.

it's Monday I should have known better.

life amid the critters

this is a large critter -- noshing in the cat food pan
note the live trap to right of his tail

now the bugger is attempting to get the peanut butter laced marshmallow out of the trap .. without tripping the trap ... sneaky critter ...
we've moved the trap -- and now we're licking the cat pan clean
beautiful day/night/evening in the Valley
62' today .. just bizarre weather for the middle of February
Spring Fever is an issue on 3rd street
as is -- well, Robyn went down with the sniffles
Kevin arrived to work after loading the pigs for market
Cameron got the pukes at school and Kevin had to leave
Meagan left early for dinner/theater ...
Needless to say -- I worked -- as did Jackie when she arrived.
