Just heard about high-water rescues east of you in Rowlett. Hope everything's ok in your area.

GG ~ I just stopped by to see what was shaking up there, and I see it's your house! There was hail around College Station and Austin already - smallish in College Station, but there was one report of golf-ball sized at the corner of MoPac and something in Austin.

It started getting foggy here about 2 p.m. and now it's really thickened up. Quarter-mile visibility, I suppose. Plenty of moisture for whatever's coming to work with, that's for sure.

I'm sitting here watching a guy in shorts and no shirt down on the walkway that goes around the marina. He's doing pushups - just got past fifty. It wore me out to count,so I quit at that point.

Glad you got out to Lewisville today - it must have been lovely. I've got to get my chores finished up so I can plan my next day trip! And we NEED some cold weather to slow everything down. The redbuds are getting close to being ready to pop - it could turn into one of those years where everything blooms and then gets freeze-nipped.

Keep an eye out on this weather. Our thunderstorms are supposed to arrive after midnight. It's been so long since good thunderstorms, I may wait up.

OH!!! I nearly forgot what I wanted to bring you. Check this out, if you haven't seen it at sp's. There's a perfect use for someone's crystals in here! Besides that, the technology is great.

Hi All,
It has indeed been a wonderful weather event around here. Yesterday the spouse took a half day off from work and we went to Lake Lewisville. Roxie got a two hour walk and I took lots of pictures.

Hi SP, once upon a time I actually owned some clothing that would have worked with the Mad Max theme;)

Hi Ylee, Seeing as poor Peyton should stay off the field with his neck injury, let's hope younger brother over-achieves for the both of them.

Hi Sandi, we either need to win a big lotto or learn Spanish and move to South America where help and living expenses are cheap.

Hi Briarcraft, Oh yeah I have imagined those two getting into all kinds of mischief using team work to over come not having opposable thumbs. I could see them ordering pizza on-line if they had my card number Lol.

Oh the house is shaking! That is some Texas size thunder going on. Bring the rain but no high winds or hail please.

Do you have any idea what Syd and Roxie do when they're home alone?

(Wha? Where did that come from? Yikes, she's having random, unrelated thoughts again.)

Actually, you recently made a comment on my blog:
"Roxie is trying her puppy pirate skills to illegally board my lap (not allowed while on computer). The formerly quiet cockatoo is now chattering away to get attention because the dog is getting some."

And that got me to wondering, because I think cockatoos are very social and require attention, corgis are quite energetic, and both are very smart. It seems that they might amuse each other and even incite each other to mischief when no human is around to entertain them. I have to think there's a lot of potential there. So, do you find evidence of interesting and/or forbidden activities when you return home from work?

Retirement really needs to come with maid and laundry service so one can enjoy it better.

Ah, yes, but retirement also comes with less "salary", so when you need help in the house, you can't afford it!! lol

Enjoy your day off:)

Oh man! An "End of the World" theme? That's going to be FUN!
You could always try to maintain the hairstyle for a couple months ... no? NO! Let someone else be the zombie.
You could do a spiky Mad Max thing, instead ;)

Your weather sticker says 77 degrees! That's just nuts. Hope you're all having a fun "Saturday" :)

Good Morning!
It is my day off. The weather is nice but odd. Warm, humid, overcast with no wind. There are robins and juncos around.....This is quite early. Usually do not see these guys until the March migration.

Hi Sig, how could we have missed the Zombie parade?!
My timing is off for all things zombie it seems. The All-Con Sci-Fi/Anime etc convention is in March. Two weeks ago my hair was in wiry tufts. I could have so dressed up like a zombie from the Plants v Zombies game. Here is the link to All-Con for anyone who is curious Link

Hi Ylee, Now it's my Saturday. May actually get out in the yard. Not real into the Ravens or Pat's, but am really interested in the Giants v 49's game later.

Hi Gams, It's our weekend! Are you having the grandkids over? Whatever you are up to I hope it turns out fun.

Hi Prose, Thanks, what a beautiful snow bird. They prabaly don't like it, but birds look best in snowy backrounds.

Hi Sandi, I think retirement means slightly more time for hobbies and fun. Retirement really needs to come with maid and laundry service so one can enjoy it better.

Hi Shore, the animals are all cattywumpus up here too. Not sure what that's about.
The toe sounds like it has a small fracture and lots of broken blood vessels. Avoid blood thinners like alcohol, aspirin, ibuprofen, aleve. Use tylenol instead. and of course elevate above heart several times a day (without locking knee joint)

LOL Shore! It seems to me that now you have a weather predictor in your toe! That must have been quite a turn with the grocery cart. You and my granddaughter can commiserate together when the toes are speaking to you. I assume that you read that my little R. broke her big toe in gymnastics class. She has to wear a soft show for a month. I suppose it is there to stop her from doing cartwheels!
By the way, my squirrels (from my yard) are mating as well. They are chasing each other over the snow-ice covered ground and up trees, a sure sign of amorous intentions.

Hi GG. I hope that you are having a good weekend.

Morning, GG,

We've got real problems down here - the squirrels are mating, and the doves sound like it's April with all their cooing. That's what record heat will get you, I guess. I never thought I'd be longing for cold and nasty, but I am.

Looks like we may get some nice-nasty this week, with our rain chances up to 70%. I just hope there's no severe with it here, as they're forecasting for farther east.

The biggest problem I have is the little toe on my left foot. I ran over it with a grocery cart two weeks ago (don't ask - it involved a pair of sandals and a quick turn by the dairy case) and it keeps swelling up. It's not broken, but there's some problem. It could just be that it's taking the tissue longer to heal, or that it's weather making the difference now. Some days it's perfectly fine, and then it isn't. In the great scheme of things it's not important at all, but it's about the only news we have around here. How pathetic is that? LOL

What day of the week is it....? To me it is Sunday and the day of rest. Hang on, since retiring, every day is a day of rest!! lol

What day is it for you? Is it the last day of your long week?

At least your temperatures are a decent low 40's, so not too cold for a day out , if you felt like it. I went out yesterday, so am staying put today... maybe do some baking, watch the odd film, read a book, play on the computer, cook a dinner, do the laundry..... day of rest I said? lol

Good morning GG! Do they have one for the Alien Apocalypse 2012? my oldest has played many zombie based video games the last few years, so he is ready.

I will have to find the link, found it. I saw something on a zombie walk in Dallas. Looks like fun.

Hi, GG! Back at the batcave? This is my first day back on my regular schedule.

If anything, this year's winter is a tad warmer than normal. We usually have temps get near zero, but this year the coldest it's been has been 13!

Don't work too hard!

Have you been in hiding, like Wikipedia? Your blog hasn't been visited for over 24 hours!

Glad you got a chuckle out of my little story. Here is another one for today!
Yesterday, my neighbour did his usual trick, pulled his car onto my drive to get his wife's car out from behind his car. I have a long drive, but the other side of the drive is a shared drive between two houses. Down the right-hand side of my drive is a large hedge. Yesterday, he pulled a little too close to the hedge, then hadn't put the brake on correctly, the drive has a slight slope to the edge, and as he was moving the little woman's car, his began to slide forward into the hedge. I was watching from the bedroom window, from behind the curtains, and saw it all! He had quite a job to disengage his car from the laurel hedge.... I hope he scratched his car .... serves him right!!

Hope your long week is going well :)

Hi Tony, A baked cake sounds really good today. We are back to the chilly weather. 70's yesterday, 43f today with wind.

Hi Sp, I was kind of disappointed I didn't get picked for this one. Although because the jury selection was done with an over-the-top dramatic performance by the prosecutor, I may have been in for a contempt charge for eye-rolling or laughing.

Hi Gams, we are on the same schedule. At our work place it's not the folks who work Thurs, Fri, Sat that get the shift premium, it's the folks that work the front end that get it.
Somehow, working Sun, Mon, Tue is supposed to be more of a life inconvenience.

Hi Dragonfly, isn't it great whe your schedule coincides with a nice weather day? I always try to get out and open my "solar cells" on those days.

Hi Briarcraft, you are so right about not seeing things that are right there. Some days my brain seems to have a shallower depth of field than other days. Then noticing things becomes a bit of a surprise. "Whats that doing there?" Sometimes I wonder if people who report poltergiest activity just have poor memories and the shallow depth of field in their eye sight. If I lived in a shadowy old building that creaked a lot I may be tempted to think that way.

Hi Ylee, you all seem to be having a colder than normal winter or is it always like that? For some reason I always think of the South as mild winters.

Sandi, What a hoot seeing that women go about adjusting herself. That would have had me chuckling all day.

good morning GardenGrrl
I think my biggest problem with Kramer is that I'm not a cat person. The youngest at home daughter wanted a cat to replace the old (15 years) cat we had. Kramer being young is full of energy and is independant like all cats. Bt buddy is Abbey.
Yep I thought the capichino cake would be good too.
Enjoy the day.

Hi All,
It's warm but very windy today. The best bird watching seems to be out my kitchen window looking at the feeder. The little birdys all hunker down in the brush when it's like this.

Have been learning the "Organizer" part of the new Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 software. It does allow tags and has facial recognition. After the tedious loading of all my pics, tagging, making more "albums" in more specific catagories it may turn out pretty handy. Will let you know when I'm finished. 4GB sorted, only about 22GB more to go.

Oh, guess who just got home, the taxi driver. It's still warm out so Roxie is going to the dog park!
Will finish saying hi to everyone when we get back :-)

Ggrrl, your bird walk sounds like it was really enjoyable. So much fun to walk and look, living in the moment, without any thought other than to see as much as you can see and enjoy it all.

"I was less than two feet away from her, the other side of the glass, and she didn't see me! Perhaps she thought I was a dummy in the window display!!!"

I have seen that sort of thing, too. I have a hunch, Sandi, that you were standing still, not moving. I know from having cats for many years, it's very easy not to see something that doesn't move. I can walk right past a cat, calling it's name, looking for it, and not see it. And from the Science Channel, I learned that we don't actually "see" everything we look at. Our brains process only a fraction of what our eyes see and fill in the rest from memory or expectation. That's why prey often freezes instead of fleeing. That's why drivers hit cyclists, too, because they're not expecting to see anything but cars and pedestrians.

What you describe, though, with the woman adjusting her clothes, using the shop window as a mirror: haven't we all done that at one time or another? Right now, I'm wondering, trying to recall, what strange sights I might have presented to others over the years, all unknowingly.

Plapman gave me a chuckle with "My guess is that as we age we turn into rice crispies. Snap, crackle pop." Oh, my, yes!

Good morning GardenGirl
The out outjoint ribs sound painfull.
Ever since I had my bypass surgery when I pull my shoulders back theres a crunching sound. I guess the ribbs never knitted and they grind together. Luckily there's no pain involved.
My guess is that as we age we turn into rice crispies. Snap, crackle pop.
Enjoy the day.

Hello GG,

Don't fall over, it is me and I'm alive finally! LOL
I have missed everything on all my friend's blogs so far this year..

I like your quote in #24:
"Seems somehow many of the WU's have some type of connection, dental problems, jury duty, etc. One of us needs to win a huge lotto so everyone else can start winning too and blogging about dealing with the inconvenience of figuring out what to do with too much money as well. Hey, a girl can dream."

Ditto for me!!!



I have never got to serve on a Jury either.. they never pick me!!! my number is never even called to be questioned...
if they did ever get to question me I would probably be disqualified anyway! LOL

I am about to finish up my first "short week" of work this year...
next week is my firsts "long week" since early December..
I managed to make sure my vacation weeks were on the every other "long" weeks..
you do shift work like I do so you know what I am talking about.

less than an hour today.

Hope you got to enjoy the day!

Oh "hoarders in the court" made me LOL, too! Too funny - you'd be a blast in the jury room, gg :)

I've served on two juries - one a civil suit (learned all about horse breeding - cool!) and the other a patent infringement case at District Court in L.A. (not only did I learn much about patent law but I also got to hang out in downtown L.A. for a week or so - very cool and I'd do it again in a heartbeat). It feels good to feel like a participant in the justice system and to help out fellow citizens. I know that sounds kind of, what, sanctimonious? Others hate doing it. I just hope if I ever end up in court I get a jury full of people who appreciate the opportunity and take it seriously, like those I served with in both cases.

Anyway, I have to call in for jury service in a few weeks. I'll check the lottery tickets I bought last month, LOL

Thank goodness it's Friday. work was actually lot's of fun this week but I am sooo tired.

Oh Alley, ewwwww, brains. That's why I don't allow zombies in the house. I'm just not that accomadating as a hostess. I wonder if Martha Stewart has an article on this. Do you think she would serve them with Fava beans as Shore suggested?

Scrambled brains, fava beans, hoarders in court, .... What great fun coming here this early in the morning (5:30am)! You all have been having fun and I have been silly enough to stay off the blogs including this one. By the way, I have eaten lamb brain soup. I was seven or eight and visiting a cousin with my father. To my recollection it was a delicious light/delicate soup. Please do not serve this to me today, I would get violently sick and your rugs would suffer.
I used to eat fava beans, fresh and cooked. And I liked them a lot (You all eat lima beans, don't you? They are similar). I stopped eating them when my doctor gave me a list of foods not to eat to prevent bladder pain. Apparently fava beans are real irritators to sensitive bladders!

Now I am ready to go make some coffee to get the taste of brains and fava beans out of my mouth!

Have a wonderful weekend you very funny lady!

It's a chilly Friday the 13th in N. Texas. I am bundled up today.

It is chilly over here as well... we had our first frost of 2012 last night, so I put my dear orange car in the garage, rather than leave her out!

Talking of inappropriate things.... I had popped into the local charity shop to purchase 4 cut-glass wine glasses I seen in the window. I was standing by the window, on the inside, checking them out, (running fingers around the tops and stems etc.) when an old woman - well older than me - stopped and looked into the shop. She seemed to be using the window as a mirror. She hitched up her coat and pulled down her skirt which had risen up under the coat somehow. I got a wonderful view of pink flannel undergarments - and almost laughed out loud, but managed to refrain myself. Once she had sorted out her clothing she used the window to put comb her hair with her fingers. I was less than two feet away from her, the other side of the glass, and she didn't see me! Perhaps she thought I was a dummy in the window display!!!

Early afternoon here, and outside has warmed all the way up to 22; inside is somewhere in the upper thirties, I guess! The pudding cups I kept in the locker outside the shack was nicely refrigerated!

My jury service is over for the year. Never did have to go, I just called every night and every night they told me I didn't have to come in.

Y our bird walk was certainly successful! A lot of different species. I finally got Sibley's guide to north american birds to add to my collection. I have heard so much about it over the years but couldn't justify another bird id book. Until now! It has become my favorite already!!

Our excessive amounts of ravens are scaring away the quail, so no more raven feeding. When we had just the resident pair it was fine but we got an influx of juveniles this last year, well over thirty. Somewhere we can find a happy medium.

If you are back to work have a good work week!

Hi Ylee, why is everything that is hilarious yet inappropriate, totally inappropriate?
If I blurted out half the things I think at work, I'd be laughing all the way to the HR office ;-)

and people wonder why I often have a little half smirk on my face all the time.

Okay folks, be safe, stay warm, be happy.

Hi Sandi, glad to make you laugh. Probably best I wasn't picked for the jury because I was finding a whole lot of it absurdly humorous :-D

Hi Rebel, it does seem that about 80% of the code violations issued have to do with neighbors being jerks and using the city as their weapon of choice. That was my take on this ladies case of code violations. Just keep your grass clipped and your fence mended and you can unleash code hell on others bwahahahahaha. Or not. Hope you have found friendlier neighbors.

Okay here is my banner news of the year, yesterday was nice out and i did some bird watching. It was stellar! 2 types of wood peckers, robins, cedar wax wings, cardinals, hawks, mockingbirds, grass sparrows, unknown sparrow type, house finches, chickadees, juncos. Dang it was a great bird walk around the neighborhood.

My former neighbour , actually her daughter, a real pain in the butt-ski, took me to court via a Toronto By-Law Officer for what she believed was a messy yard. First part was a hearing. I was able to see a few cases first. Things like old cars in front on the street and garbage piled up which never gets picked up. The fines were $25-75. Just plead guilty. Show some remorse. I plead guilty and figured $50 was ok. But I said I don't agree with the By-Law Officer's assessment. The Judge says then you need a trial. Damn. There was a Prosceutor woman who he took cues from and she was waving photos and was rather arrogant and said I couldn't see them. The trial a few mths later was quick and I suggested [remorse and humbleness]I would clean up my yard if I could see the photos to know what would please my neighbour and thus the by-law dude. By-law guy was nice and you could see he was henpecked here. They date the photos for court. I said the dates are wrong. My summer planters don't lie against her fence to annoy her until the end of October and they were dated September. False evidence!!!! In a Canadian Court of Law---imagine that?
He said it's in the hands of the Judge. Then another trial and we resolved it harmlessly. Still cost me more that $50.
A lot of it goes back to one of my cats scratched her dogs nose through our fence. She yelled at me like I could actually counsell a cat to behave. It was unfortunate as her parents were salt of the Earth people but her and I were like cat and dog. I finally moved to get away from her. But I always knew the cats were safe as she really did love animals. Just wasn't too good with her people skills. Thanks for the forum Garden Lady. Court is not a place you want to be.

Hi All,
We had rain and now we have a nice sunny day. So after this entry it's time to go enjoy it.

Ylee, if only it was that easy to get them to think clearly.

Hi Alley, Perhaps for the far North version one should serve a liter of Molson with the fava beans ;-)
I'm definitly with you on the "world traveler" foods thing.

Hi Plapman, Sounds reallly cold at your house with the -30 wind chill. Makes it seem downright tropical here.

Hi Sandi, I was excused during the voir dire (jury questioning/selection. It sounded like an interesting case though was kind of disapointed they didn't pick me.
It was for municipal court which is only fines, no jail time. A lady was fighting 11 code violations and one verbal assault charge towards the code enforcment folks.
The city prosecuter was really dramatic saying they had pictures, some might be disturbing. (Perhaps if one has a tall grass and untidy lawn phobia). The defense had a nice clean table. The prosecuters was piled with files and papers.
Had to resist the urge to whispher to the person next to me while pointing at the piles, "Hoarder in the court". he he.

Hi Shore, that is some serious rain. It is almost unbeleivable that the next day can be a fire risk day. This has really been some drought to have those conditions after a good rain. All I can say is that we need a weekly deluge for awhile.

And now it's off to the great outdoors and then to work tomorrow.

I think the proper menu is fava beans and a nice chianti...

I got 2.77" of rain. But, there's a fire wind warning for tomorrow. Here comes the dry front, and near-gale force winds. Hang on to your hat!

Well, how goes the jury sitting? In the UK we have a two week minimum, unless you are unfortunate enough to get on to to a murder trial... then it could be any length:(

Hope you week is going OK

Good morning GG...I guess we will have to check with Sir Anthony Hopkins and find out if fava beans are the only accompliment to fried brains...ROFLMBO. Like you, I doubt very much that I would ever include them on any menu of mine even if I am inclined to try new things, sweetbreads and brains are very low on the list...it even creeps me out to see fish served with the heads on...yuk...don't think I would make a good world traveler doing an article on foods..

Anyway how are you doing, I see you mentioning work in your blog. Glad to hear you are feeling that much better. Let's pray you continue to feel stronger every day and that 2012 is a great year for you. BIG HUGS girl.

Maybe if Gov. Perry was elected President, he would serve brains at State Dinners, so leaders from around the globe would get smart!

Brains would be added to school lunches to give American kids a competitive edge!

Seems somehow many of the WU's have some type of connection, dental problems, jury duty, etc.
One of us needs to win a huge lotto so everyone else can start winning too and blogging about dealing with the inconvenience of figuring out what to do with too much money as well. Hey, a girl can dream.

Hi Calpoppy, hope your jury duty went well. Mine was certainly entertaining just by the show put on by the lawyers for the jury selection....and the answers given by potential jurors.

Hi Plapman, a flashlight is always a handy thing to have. The new LED ones are small, light and can stay in a purse nearly forever before the batteries go bad.

Hi Sandi, wow, even with a good excuse they threaten to fine you? The summons should come with a list of lawyers.

Oh Alley, ewwwww, brains. That's why I don't allow zombies in the house. I'm just not that accomadating as a hostess. I wonder if Martha Stewart has an article on this. Do you think she would serve them with Fava beans as Shore suggested?

Hi Shore, looks like Houston got some serious rain today. Hope yours was a bit gentler.

Ylee, Ylee, Ylee, even in a retro state like Texas, only Gov. Perry could say something like that and have the court believe the statement sincere ;)

Oh, I have just realised you have jury service...I had been summoned for next week, beginning 16th, but had to write for a deferral - (you know why). I got a letter back saying they have changed it to 28th August, and in bold capitals, it says I can't defer it again, or I will get a £1000 fine! That really is inconvenient, as I was going away that week... although nothing booked definitely!

One positive thing about the change is that I would rather drive over to the next town in the summer - with no chance of ice, snow, fog or dark mornings/evenings!

Have a good week :)

My stepdad likes to eat fried pork brains. Whenever my mom cooks them(rarely), they stink up the house like nothing else!

If you want to get out of jury duty, say this: "I fried me up some brains this mornin', and I feel smarter already! Them perpurtrators don't stand a chance!"
