  1. Doggie butts--all is right with the world.
    I'm easily amused you know.

    Maria, I bow at your writing prowess. The End--Woohoo.

    Jim, chicken soup for you.
    Cowboys have been a pitiful bunch, but have sparked a bit of late.

    Farf, I'm thinking this Mason watching could save you from many chores.
    Beth, the frustration of others ineptness.

    Dina, A single menorah sounds good since my house is half decorated for Christmas. Daughter started last night and will finish this week. Saw this segment on a synogugue they had remodeled and made a museum in NY. They had created this awesome stained glass window with all these stars on fused blue glass of various shades. They put gold leaf stars on for the night and the daylight showed the glass stars. I loved the simple elements but interesting effects.

    No kiddos for me for two days. Instead we drive across Dallas County to sit with 400 participants in teacher training.
    Spent about 7 hours this weekend getting things ready for my sub and aide. Blessing and curse being out.

    Marvelous Monday to All.

  2. Dogs in fog still eat like hogs!

    Lisa, yes, Mason does enable me to avoid more onerous things, even if the payback is I don't get to sleep all night. Enjoy the kiddo-free days. Here's hoping the sub doesn't mess things up too much.

    New White Pickups episode is up. This is the one I mentioned back in July, that triggered a 5000+ word avalanche and tied together a bunch of stuff that didn't make sense otherwise. For the first time in >1100 blog posts, I've scribbled on my own VGW by way of explanation. And ironically, I finished the book the same day I queued it up for posting. Yup, Book 1 is done, off to start fitting together pieces of Book 2… after mime time of course…

  3. Lisa, I saw that segment also - what an incredible window!

    I don't decorate especially for Christmas - the stuff (which is mostly cat stuff) is up all year round. No energy to take it down and put it back up.

    By the way this picture made much more sense when I read 'fog' instead of 'frog.' Although the original reading made for some interesting mental pictures.

    Good Monday, everyone.

  5. Onward, through the fog (or frog, for Dina!). ::g::

    I spent yesterday being a lazy woman. Loved it. Watched a ton of Mythbusters. Read half of the new Miles Vorkosian saga, Cryoburn (author: Lois McMaster Bujold). Am happy camper!

    Wishing everyone a fantastic Monday!!

  6. Love the thought of walking in the foggy woods with the pack...weather is SO interesting! Hope you had a good celebration yesterday, andi, and Jim's cold is better.

    Congrats to Maria again for Ending!!! Glad you took the day off - you deserve it. And yay to Farf for Ending, too!

    Good luck to Lisa for the training.

    Yearlong decorations sound great, dina!

    Hoping to get a tree tonight - worked all day yesterday, so no Christmas in sight here yet. Soon...

    Off to Paradise Bakery to work in a warmer spot (condo is cold, which will be great in the summertime). Hopefully tomorrow I'll have time to look for that box, file that claim, tote that barge, lift that bale...

    Happy Monday, y'all!

  7. And, Lisa, they find human easily amusing. ;)

    Excellent news, Farf, on the writing -- amazed you can get anything done when you're home.

    Dogs meeting in frogs, Dina, sounds like a very bad thing for the frogs.

    Sounds like a perfect Sunday, Maria.

    On that cold now, cold later theory, Beth, just remember that past performance is no guarantee of future results. ;)

  8. Didn't get the christmas lights up this weekend, maybe this weekend...

    Talked with our Produce Manager and I mentioned the decorating phenom on my block and her eyes lit up. I know from past discussions that she isn't christian. I asked if she decorated for christmas, she said, "Heckyeah! I'm pagan. We totally do it up! Tree, lights, feasts, gifts, dancing, everything!" :) (I'm still laughing) She advised me that I could indeed set up lights, tree and candles and not feel that I should attend mass or one of the mega-churches here or go into debt.

    Wayne has a colonoscopy Wednesday. Many directions for that. Then Thursday I start fasting for my bloodwork on Friday. Danni goes in for an MRI that day as well. Maybe Farf can run us around ? :)

    Been having a weird nightmare lately, not every night but at least once a week. I do know that dreams/mares that reoccur have something to say to you but this one wakes me in a panic. Basically this couple we meet at some game resort march into our room while me and Wayne are lazying about and the man is covered in yellow plastic banner with a little Elmo plastic mask on. He thrusts a humongous knife into my neck. I can't breathe or make a sound. Then he leans in and slowly starts to tickle my armpit and says, "Don't you just hate that? (he means being tickled) I can't even holler or scream or tell him to stop. But the fear comes in how did he know I would not only hate being killed with a knife but that I hate being tickeled. And it is pure torture, dying while he's doing that. His wife comes up from behind and I can see she has killed Wayne. "Don't you just hate that."
