That could also be used as a defense to prosecution for many crimes in this state.

This year's Peterson Christmas pipe design is a little boring. Elegant, maybe, but it just doesn't project Christmas to me.
I agree with your assessment.
Am I the only one who has not seen said pipe?

I got the green light to work whatever over time I want for the foreseeable future. Woot!


In related news, we have about 60 pallets of Christmas stuff already stashed in the store. I wrapped, tagged, and put away 18 pallets of it last night.

I was off CPS for five days. No cell phone ('cept, ten minutes of texts when I was in town one evening). No television, radio, or print news.

I am working around the clock from this morning at 7.30a to Monday 5p.

Might be some odder than usual late night posts over the next few days.

My brother was doing business in Houston and got rained out. He's in town on his way back to Dallas. Tonight I'll be feasting on brisket for the second time this week.

Cocopuff asked me if we could go to a Pink Floyd concert. She was sad to learn that they didn't tour anymore.
