Shameless self-promotion of my writing skills or lack there of.

Weekend Recap

We had another fairly quiet weekend around here. I caught up on some reading and even managed to get some extra writing done. Perhaps later this week, I will post a book review. I guess we will just have to see how the week plays out.

I mostly wrapped up the project for Syntroleum last week. Mostly??? How does one mostly finish a project? We hit a snag in the physical construction and it wasn’t complete by COB Friday. I will have to return one day this week to finish up the last of the checkouts and answer any operational questions that may have arose since the good folks at the lab now have an opportunity to play with their new system.

I have a few other things to catch up on so I will keep this short for today. Oh, and I will leave you with a joke to brighten up your day.

The other night I was invited out for a night with "the girls." I told
my husband that I would be home by midnight, "I promise!" Well, the
hours passed and the margaritas went down way too easy.
Around 3 a.m., a bit loaded, I headed for home. Just as I got in the
door, the cuckoo clock in the hall started up and cuckooed 3 times.
Quickly, realizing my husband would probably wake up, I cuckooed
another 9 times.

I was really proud of myself for coming up with such a quick-witted
solution, in order to escape a possible conflict with him. (Even when
totally smashed...3 cuckoos plus 9 cuckoos totals 12 cuckoos =

The next morning my husband asked me what time I got in, and I told him
He didn't seem pissed off at all. Whew! Got away with that one!
Then he said, "We need a new cuckoo clock."

When I asked him why?, he said, "Well, last night our clock cuckooed
three times, then said, "Oh, shit!", cuckooed 4 more times, cleared
it's throat, cuckooed another 3 times, giggled, cuckooed twice more and
then tripped over the coffee table and farted.

Great joke!

No new baby cousin yet, but all weekend we kept thinking...
Okay, if I have another contraction during this hour we'll call the hospital. It just so happened that the next one came during the following hour every time. Being dialated now though makes everything a wee bit more intense around here.

Hi, James: I went to southwestern Oklahoma to check on my 76 year old mom. She was doing fine. We took care of all her shopping chores. You would enjoy knowing her. She thinks she's a reincarnated Egyptian. Feels like she was a "scribe" she tells me. Her bedroom is decorated with Egyptian stuff. She's a real trip! Extremely intelligent and well read. But agoraphobic and this has posed many problems. Well, we bop along. Enjoyed the joke. Needed a good belly laugh! Donnetta

She sound absolutely fascinating. agoraphobia is such a tragic affliction, but at least she has family to help her along.
