My week was great. Started a new job downtown and it couldn’t have gone better. Weather here today is awful...thick fog all day. I got some grilling in yesterday.
How are you?
Hey, congratulations on your new job! That’s great news!
We did hear the Ravens game yesterday. We wondered if you were a Ravens or a Redskins fan. It was a heck of game, too.
We’ve had fog and cloudiness for several days now, and we’re expecting more rain over the next few days.
The week was okay—not too eventful, but we have to go to bed early tonight to get up early in the morning. I may have to listen to The Whistler another evening.
I grew up on the skins but live about 10min from Ravens stadium.
What’s going on tomorrow?
A funeral. Keith’s nephew died, natural causes. He was in his thirties. It’s very sad.
Feeling a lot better, thank God. So many people sick around here...
So sorry to hear about Keith’s nephew. My sincere condolences...
Congrats on your new job & Baltimore ‘s win.
Thanks. Glad you’re feeling better. Are you covered in fog there?
There’s no visibility here at all because of the fog!
Thanks to you both!
Lance Armstrong is scheduled to be interviewed by Oprah on Thurs night. I have Directv, & I don’t believe I get her network.
Can’t imagine what he’s going to say after all the lies he told in the past.
Armstrong and Oprah. Disgusting.
Reading Tyler Hamilton’s book was a revelation. Have to say I was shocked about what went on in cycling...
