    Sweet Sunday all. Rained last nite, so no lawn mowing today. Speaking of rain, hubby has taken the reins and we're taking a drive South today ISO fun. Didn't kick any tires yesterday, but had a ball pursuing other entertainments. It was like having a preview for our EOM vacation.

    I'm promoting him to Director of Entertainment And Recreation. ~_~ Hope y'all have a Sun Funday, too.

        *snickers* You just told AleeD to "have a ball"! LOL

          and I almost included a suggestion for her to choose what KIND of, er,....."ball" to have.

    Good Morning Happy Weekend Klatschers! How's everyone doing on this beautiful Saturday? We're expecting temps in the low 90's with a 30 to 50% chance of rain for the weekend.

    Hubby & I are going to do some vacation surfing this morning, then go kick some tires this afternoon. What are your plans for the weekend?

      Great on the vacation surfing, AleeD, have fun finding something! Quiet day here, nice for a change.

      Vacation surfing sounds like a fun time, kicking tires, not so much! I had to cancel my cruise vacay in Oct. cause hubs went over his budget on a car hoo.

      Afternoon ladies. LSS, we're approved for a long weekend at the end of the month. We'll rent a car and head down to Naples to do some seat-of-the-pants exploration (antiques shopping, dining and general relaxation). SIGH. It'll be great just to get away together. ^_^

      JB, so sorry to hear you had to cancel your plans. Do you have a back-up vacation in mind?
      Mary, enjoy your quiet day with your furries. ;)

    • Truth™@Mary, JBJ, AleeD

      Good morning ladies. Having a quiet day at the office today. I was given a project this week that is taking on a life of its own. Fun, fun.

      Hi De Ho! Huey Lewis and the News was fab last night! Wish I could find a GOOD vid of them but they all have embedded commercials....erk!

    Alright Crew, I am out of here. Good times today. Kind of felt like the old days for a little bit.

      Ms dang is welcome in DC anytime. About 100 of her would star to keep the hood-rats at bay that are out of school with nothing to do but petty crimes.

      • Truth™@Biddle, JDizz

        I may be again shortly. We just picked up someone to staff our parking booth, and she is just Not Getting It. She asked what she could do to improve, and I said "Getting in on time would be an excellent start" (she was 25 minutes late today), That is what initiated the tears. It went downhill from there.

        July 13, 2012 at 2:54 pm |

          I would love to work with you. Key word – with. I think you and I have identical work ethic

    Just heard my first commercial on the radio for "Back to School" sales. When I was a young'un, that would have sent me over the edge, especially five weeks before school starts.

    July 13, 2012 at 1:44 pm |
    • Jdizzle McHammerpants ♫♫

      Try almost 8 weeks around these parts.

      YAY for America's retail economy! The backbone of every great nation!

      Can't wait for Halloween for my favorite Christmas commercials!

        Denver starts back on August 21, which I always thought was way early. I'm from NY, and we always started the Wednesday after Labor Day.

        And in other Denver news...

          Sheesh. I don't care if someone breast feeds "in public". Just not next to me on the plane (you're already in my personal space). But use your head. IN the kiddie pool? C'mon.

    T-G-I-F! Happy Friday all and sleepless ones.

    Truth, I hear ya, I get in a pattern of waking up at 4 a.m. and can't break it for a while unless I start not feeling well, then I'm back to my usual 5 a.m. wake up. That and the cat seems to have set his internal clock to 4 a.m. also and wants to be fed...

          A LOT of nice rides!. Some cool cars, trucks, and motorcycles in there too.

    Agree. One more reason I am not on Facebook.

    My nephew left his phone out once and his buddies took it and posted on Faebook that he was in love and eloping. Kids these days. What ever happened to the old flaming bag of dog doo on doorsteps, prank phone calls or egg'ing someone's house?

    July 13, 2012 at 10:31 am |
    • Truth™@JDizz, Biddle

      That is why you could not pay me to be on Facebook...and besides, I am not really that interesting.

      July 13, 2012 at 10:33 am |
      • Sir Biddle@Truth

        Don't sell yourself short. I bet you could be casted for a Heiniken commercial.

    Woman: "Who do you keep texting honey?"
    *peers over shoulder*

    Woman: "Ohhhhhh, who is Stacey?"

    Man: "She's a co-worker!"

    Woman: "That's all she better be."

    Man: in head "remind self to delete text history better"

    • Jdizzle McHammerpants ♫♫ @ Sir Biddle

      That's what I thought immediately.

      Anytime a family member posts anything on Facebook I get a text. It's annoying and I can't figure out how to turn that off. NGF asked for my Facebook password so she could help. I said "nice try". Nothing to hide here, but everyone needs their privacy even in relationships LOL.

    Good morning all, and to paraphrase from my Father, "Insomnia does not just suqq, it performs the entire act, including f0replay and a smoke in the dark afterward"...For some reason, the words of Jim Morrison are in my head. "Well, I woke up this morning, and I got myself a beer" (I didn't really, but Happy Friday all the same)

    Coffee, Donuts, and well, Beer are in the back, so help yourselves. How is everyone doing today?

      Was it really 3:30 am your time when you wrote that, or is 5:30 am right? Either way, yuck!!!! Sorry you had a bad night.

      • Truth™@Mary

        It really was 3:30 a.m....not fun. I though people slept more as they got older. I am only good for four or five hours lately. On the bright side, I have lots of productive time...
