New Year's Eve

Got plans for New Year's Eve? We're quite the party people. We'll rent a couple of movies, chow down and crash. I'm hoping to make it to midnight:) What's your plans?

Jail Break from (or into) High Security Prison

Okay, so we put up the storm door with extra mesh on the outside of the door, since the beast tore up the screen coming through the door. We ( I use this term lightly as the hh did all the work) added a higher layer of mesh to the screened in porch. We thought we were set and let the beast out. She decided to come through the cat hole.

It's Monday

Wow, it's Monday and I'm not at work. Weird. I have one more week off and since its back to editing, its a good thing. How was your holidays? My computer decided to die over Christmas, so after a brief moment of silence I went out and bought a new one. grin. I'm hoping this one is a healthier specimen. I bought a support package which I've never done before. Since my techno skills are limited I trust it will be worth it. I couldn't get Word downloaded, it didn't recognize my activation key so I called Microsoft. It's usually luck of the draw when I call in for any type of support from any company. This time, my tech was wonderful. He was really helpful and I have Word again. Good thing since I'm editing, huh? 
Oops got sidetracked. Back to Christmas. It was fun having time with the babies. I swear the little girl tried to give me a kiss. That's my story and I'm sticking to it:)  My daughter and her fiancee fixed lunch: twice baked potatoes, stuffing, fresh green bean casserole, stuffed squash (see below), roasted carrots, mushroom gravy, butterscotch and bourbon pie, and for the carnivores we picked up a couple of braised chickens. It was a vegetarian's delight:) Santa remembered we'd moved to a different local and found the house without difficulty. Whew. What about you? Did Santa stop? Did you have a wonderful day with family and friends? I sincerely hope so and would love to hear about it.

Wacky Wednesday

A male buddy of mine was transferred from a nearly all male work environment to a nearly all female work environment. His response to the situation: "It's like being in a foreign country without a passport and no embassy in sight."

What invention created a mass movement towards completely indoor pet cats?

Where Am I?

Anybody else ever felt like this?
*
My news: I'm retiring from my day job in March. I've got a book due in May that I haven't started so the retirement is timely. I will miss my associates and friends, I've been at my current position nearly fourteen years. What I won't miss...the alarm clock going off at six a.m. Maybe, after I've retired, I should set it anyway just to get up and get going. Not. Any news on your end?

It's Monday and Captcha

Yup, it's Monday. Didn't do too much here. Still unpacking boxes and editing. What about you?
~*~
I've got a question. How do you turn off Captcha?  I believe when blogger updated they made it automatic, but since some of the blogster buds don't have Captcha  there must be a way to get rid of it. I've just been ignoring it when I make my comments and that seems to work. Is that what you do?

Wacky Wednesday: Siri

I was frustrated with Siri and told her, "You don't help me at all."
Her response, "I don't understand 'You don't help me at all' but I could search the web for it."

Monday, December 8

Yikes! It's already December 8. A couple of blinks and its going to be Christmas. How's your shopping going? We started this weekend. It's an ongoing project. What about you? Got yours done?
~*~
On another topic. Do you use the term 'girl' when addressing any of your girlfriends? Do you find being addressed as girl offensive? No guys, not you:) Why I'm asking: My 1800's ghost addresses a young woman as girl and my editor finds it offensive. I'm really curious about it, because I don't find it offensive, and use the term all the time, but if she does others must as well.   What's your thoughts?

Hanging Tree


Have you seen Mockingjay yet?
Both the HH and I thought it was great. One interesting thing I noticed, instead of mainly teens and tweens most of the theater goers were adults.  It was a Sunday matinee and that probably had a bearing still the series seems to have a large adult following. If you've seen it let me know what you thought.

 Can you believe it's December? Yikes!
