I think my computer issues are fixed. At least my fingers are crossed. Because of the problems, I am WAY behind on visiting and commenting. Will be playing catch up this weekend.
1. It's raining. This isn't a complaint, we need the rain. No thunder, lightening, or fear of tornadoes—merely a constant soft rain most of the day yesterday, all night long, and it is still coming down this morning. Makes me think of fall.
2. Our new boss started this week. So far, so good. I already feel the burden lifting. The Judge is vacationing through next week which means my desk should be all caught up soon. I'm hoping to take a day off next week, hopefully Friday so I can have a 3-day weekend. We want to check out Heron Park which Rose mentioned in one of her posts.
3. Our book club meets in a little over a week and I haven't started reading the selection yet. Low Pressure by Sandra Brown. I'm sure it will be good, but I want to start reading The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. A book highly recommended by Punky Doodle and her Brood. (she will call me to complain after she reads that phrase). Yes, it is for younger readers. The author, Kate DiCamillo is a two-time Newbery Medal Winner and was runner up for one of my favorite young people's books, Because of Winn-Dixie.
4. Speaking of Punky Doodle and her Brood, The Punk called me last night to complain about my name abbreviations. She didn't complain too loudly about Punky Doodle, yet expressed a bit of disappointment in my choice. However, she also doesn't like my use of Dyl for son's boy, nor does she like my use of 'The Grands'. So, I have decided to change my references to the following:
Daughter - The Punk
Son-in-law - Critter
Son - Sonny Boy
Sonny Boy's girl - The Lady
Sonny Boy's Son, Dyl - Handsome Lad
I have already changed Hubs to JD, which leaves The Grands, of which there are four, one girl and three boys. I can't come up with anything. Any recommendations???
5. Fergus is driving me crazy with his favorite toy. When I run the vaccuum cleaner, a.k.a. The Zoom Zoom, he grabs up this toy, gets in front of The Zoom Zoom—and barks—and lunges while the toy remains in his mouth. The barking action causes the toy to squeak. So we have a very loud zoom, louder bark, and high-pitched squeak. It's a noisy undertaking.
