Pollen Fairies

Thursday, May 31st, 2007

Alright, the Pollen Fairies are in full swing today and the sneezies are attacking everyone. If we don’t get some rain real soon, I’m afraid my front yard is going to burst into flames!

You Raise Me Up

Wednesday, May 30th, 2007

This song speaks to me…Oh. My. I would love to hear our choir do this.

The version above, which is my favorite, is done by Selah. My cousin, Mark, sent me his favorite which is done by Celtic Woman. I have to say it is breathtaking. Once again, enjoy…

Todays’ Stupid Headlines

Tuesday, May 29th, 2007

I have often said that I should go to work writing for officer.com when I retire. Today’s “Stupid Headlines” are perfect examples as to just why that is…

Pennsylvania Officer Hit by Car Thrown 35 Feet

(Wouldn’t you like to get a look at the dude that threw that car 35 feet?)

Four Killed in Texas Mobile Home Hangings

(I’m not even going to go there)

This might sound a little like I’m picking on cops because…well, I guess I am…but I’ve been a cop for a LOOOOOONNNGGGG time so I have a right to speak my mind and try to dispel the stereotype of “dumb cops”. Stuff like this certainly doesn’t help though.

Bunches of Info

Friday, May 25th, 2007

I’ve just finished adding over 150 more obituaires to wemightbekin. As always, the best way to check out what’s been added is to click on New Stuff. That’s the easiest way to find the new obits too and will save you lots of time trying to sort through the piles of information already there.

By the way, a little hint for you…when you open an obituary file, always click on the tab on the side of the page that says “Bookmarks”. That will open a window which lists each individual obituary and will allow you to click on the one you want to view.

Enjoy yourselves and I hope you find something you can use.

Prophesy

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2007

The Great Prophetess Helen (a.k.a. Aunt Joyce) warned me that my impending furniture delivery could very well be delayed. She was right in her prophecy. Ohhhhhh, she must have powers! Be afraid. Be very afraid!

I received a phone call this morning from Walter at Value City Furniture telling me that my new couch is not going to make it into the hemisphere until the end of June. It was supposed to grace my living space this very weekend. Harumph.

I advised Walter that I was less than pleased with this news especially given the fact that I had already given away my old couch in anticipation of the arrival of my new one. Therefore, an emptiness permeates my living space as we speak. Walter, this is not good.

Walter was ever so sorry. Walter apologized profusely. Walter was apparently reading from a script. I interrupted Walter. Let me put it like this Walter. I bought this furniture three weeks ago Walter. I paid cash for this furniture Walter. You are enjoying my cash but I am not enjoying your furniture Walter. Do you see the problem here Walter? Walter, I need to be compensated. Hmmm, an ottoman would be nice. Walter said he would call me right back. Walter did just that.

Walter advised me that his manager offered me the choice of free delivery or $75.00 off my order. Now Walter, how can you folks offer me free delivery on stuff I wasn’t having delivered? Does that even enter into the realm of reasonable in your world? Walter offered to let me talk to the manager myself. I, of course, accepted. His name was also Walter. How convenient is that?

Allow me to cut to the chase here. After Walter the II and I were finished, we had reached an understanding. It goes a little something like this. I will get my chair this Saturday just as scheduled. The ottoman, which I wasn’t even getting at first and was originally priced at $249.99, will be going home with me this Saturday for $150.00, with scotch guarding thrown in for free. The couch should still be landing sometime in June. I think the Walters will be taking the day off on Saturday. Muhahahaha.

Not Gonna Make It

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2007

The Dancing With the Stars big finale is tonight and I have really been looking forward to it but…Houston, we have a problem. The finale is two hours long and doesn’t even start until 9:00. I am so tired that I am just about dead on my feet. This night is exactly the reason TiVo was invented. I’ll watch it at my leisure tomorrow evening. I have to go to bed. I’m beat.

Go Apolo!! I’m pulling for you!!

Patience is a Virtue

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2007

I passed a church sign on the way in to work today. This is what it said…

“God stretches our patience to strengthen our souls”

Apparently my soul is in my tummy and I am an extremely patient person!

OK

Monday, May 21st, 2007

Here’s what I say. Act like it matters now… :D Even though Joey and Kym got one of my votes for that amazing freestyle routine, this season’s champions will be Apolo & Julianne. At least I hope so. (shhhh, don’t tell Apolo but Joey’s “last dance” really was incredible)
