    Well to me it was...I just found out that my ex business partners (from 20 yrs ago) son is Kelly Hansen from Foreigner! How cool is that? I remember going to some of his shows and meeting him several times and when I heard his name associated with Foreigner I wasn't sure it was him, but thought so....the internets are amazing.

    Nothing beats fresh tomaters out of the garden. Nice and red all the way through, juicy, yummy. Coming out of our ears here. NGF dad can't give them away fast enough. Bad thing is I like them so much I might get da bad poopoo from eating too many of them at once. Oh well! Memories last forever, shorts only for a while!

        Yep, we're headed north again. We've rented a house for the week of Labor Day. Dinner last night was hamburgers, potato wedges and green beans at home. Hubs picked up a chocolate cake for me as well.

      I'm jealous! We got mid 80's here right now, which isn't terrible, but I would love for it to be in the 70s. Great outdoor anything weather!

      Just yesterday, someone told me they're trying to start a Graham Kerr renaissance. I do think he's up next.

      That's a little before my time (had to google it) but I remember seeing that guy somewhere.

        My favorite part is how he long jumps without spilling his wine.

      Graham Kerr has nothing over Justin Wilson. I guarantee it.

    Good morning!! Lots of rain and storms here yesterday and last night, today is nice and breezy. Weekend should be gorgeous, high 70's and low in the 50's....I'll be on deck if anyone needs me.

    Good morning all!! Just getting home. Wild night; everything from a drunk throwing chairs off his balcony at people to my TO going way too fast and almost flipping the car on the way to a hot call. Fun times! Hope you all have a good day!

    As Jerv studies the strategic placement of coffee cups upon his desk–a song pops into his head...." I can pee freely now the rain has gone–It's gonna be a Bright..Sun Shiney Day ".

      L M A O! Thanks for the early morning laugh. I see some lucky SOB in Michigan won the 336mm lottery. Go Packers!!

        Your Welcome Lil' Buddy...Just like old times. Yea, WD is PO'd since she scrounged thru the sleeper for change and didn't win squat.

          Good WD. And it looks like someone in VA won a cool million. Nice. Yeah, things are starting to settle down around here with the boss leaving. I have the good fortune of acquiring new job responsibilities. Great for job security, I guess.
