Good morning, Kathy!

*HUGS*

Hope you have a great day! Crossed the office door this morning at 6:36. A restful sleep last night. Hope everything is going well with you!

Good morning, Tom! Is the game in Chi or in DC? Is the Kenyan-in-Chief tossing out the first ball?

SOUP FOR THE TROOPS

WELCOME TO

(where our troops, allies and their families can refresh themselves)

Good morning, Everyone.
Good morning to our

Military, our Allies, and their families.

Thank you, Ma, for preparing the Canteen for today's activities

Geez, can't decide which of the photos are my favorite this morning...
they're all so good.

~ Today...Sunny. Highs in the lower 60s.
North winds 5 to 10 mph.

~ Tonight...Mostly clear. Lows in the upper 30s.
Northeast winds 5 to 10 mph.

Appears that we are in a dry spell right now. No rain in sight.

Making Z Zoup
A sprinkle of this...a splash of that...

Afternoon temperatures on Mars
go up to about 80 degrees in some areas,
and down to -190 degrees F at night.

Statistically, UFO sightings are at their greatest number
during those times when Mars is closest to Earth.
(hmmm, they trying to tell us something?)

Most roofs in the Washington, D.C. area are designed
to withstand at least 15 to 20 pounds of snow per square foot.

The first envelopes with gummed flaps were produced in 1844.
In Britain, they were not immediately popular
because it was thought to be a serious insult
to send a person's saliva to someone else.

Alrighty then...I was off yesterday for a family thing.
Will try to catch up on pings throughout the day
but I do have some catching up at work to do as well.

So, let me make my rounds.
Please stay right where you are.
Keep the troops entertained and the Canteen clean...
Cause...if you don't...I'll tell Ma!

Come in and sit for a while.

There's always plenty of coffee, tea,
pancakes, conversation, silliness,
and plain old BS

PLEASE REMEMBER THEM ....

Opening day here in Chicago: we’re expecting snow ( it’s snowed more often than not for the CUBS’s home opener).

Bill Murray is tossing out the first ball, & singing “Take Me Out To the Ball Game” for the 7th inning stretch.

The CIC is a fan of the little league team on the south side, the white sux.

No, I did not install the cabinets. We had pros do that. I used to work in construction, but we built custom cabinets in place. These were prefabs from LOWES and they have excellent installers.

Well, it's been rather busy.

First off, I took Bo to the vet. His nose wasn't looking too good. He's taking some pills now and recuperating. All that sniffing in the grass he seems to enjoy has really taken it's toll on him.

Apparently, Bo's not the only one. Allergies have been a problem with animals all across this part of the country. This unfortunately means I can't let my dog do whatever he wants. We're going to try out some non-grassy spots at Waurika Lake Tomorrow and Saturday.

Also, the tree behind Chuck's old garage fell yesterday. They've been working on it but it seems like this is not as easy of a job as they thought. They're back to continue this work.

We also had the washing machine sewer fixed. It was backing up and running on the kitchen floor.

Not much else is going on. It's a nice sunny day but cool here.

That’s bad news for Bo; seems that a favorite hobby of ALL dogs is playing sniff-around.

Good afternoon, E...((HUGS))...things have been busy all around you. That’s too bad about Bo’s nose. Hope you two find another good place for Bo to run around.

Hopefully the tree that fell didn’t hit anything.
