Just finished a 2500 mile round trip. From Texas to Virginia, to both Carolinas, and back. Made it through 8 states, not including the Lone Star.

This, gentlemen, is what it feels like when doves cry.

But it is easier for a Lifted Ford to pass under the beam of a parking garage than it is for a Dodge Ram driver to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

I just finished a letter to an, old, special friend - former piano teacher, who had a CVA and is in a Facility for such helpless people now. She cannot reply, so it's a one-way conversation, with me trying to encourage her....and then when I hit PRINT on the laptop - - my printer insists it won't do anything until I replace a yellow cartridge! I've ordered re-manufactured ones online - - due to arrive Dec. 2.

Dang, that’s a nice drive. Glad you’re home safely.

I return to work tomorrow after a week away.

I have rested well. I'll be able to tell clients to shut up and sit down with minimal stress.

ahhhhhh it's all about me

I have never reset the "A" trip odometer on either my automobile or my Moped.

I do reset the "B" trip odometer everytime I refill.

As a parent, the Tiny Tim scenes in Christmas movies are really hard to watch.

The 4th day was hardest. Now, the cravings are only 2 or 3 times a day. Black cherry e-juice has the closest throat hit.

I’m roughly halfway to my 90 day review at the mill. I’m hoping for a raise.

Hello FredS
Answering the call on a holiday weekend will surely be noticed.

Just ordered Andrea Bocelli's "BELIEVE" CD, and two CD's of Master Ludwig van Beethoven's "BENEDEICTUS" AND adagio.
If anyone is interested, Bocelli has announced an upcoming holiday event: "Believe in Christmas" which is scheduled to perform live from Italy's Teatro Regio di Parma opera house on Dec. 12. I do not have a time or any more info. But this ticketed event will be streamed to fans everywhere and will include musicians and special guests.

For those who enjoy this quality of music, it should be an inspiring event for the entire family to view. Oh I hope I can find it and view it! I hope "streamed" means on television and not just computers. I'm a duh-brain when it comes to most all modern tech lingo. :( :confused: :oops:

I found a prodigal tin of EMP that had been missing for a week. Or does this belong in the Testimonies section?
