Let's start the day off with an appropriate for the day article:
I have pulled off a few pranks in my life. Small ones. Short sheeting. Icy Hot in shorts and jock straps. And so on. Probably the best prank ever thought of in my lifetime was the mastermind of a really good friend and myself. We had the good sense to call of the prank at the last minute. R & I worked at a company where Bob W. was our supervisor. He was a racist bigot magnified. It was winter time R was a professional baseball player just keeping busy until the season started up again. Neither one of us were bigots and it was quite annoying to listen to the B.S. Bob W. was spewing. R knew an African-American teammate that was taking acting classes. We decided to hire the acting class dude to come in to work one day and go to Bob's office and ask Bob if he could marry his daughter. We chickened out at the last minute because we didn't want to go to jail if he died of a heart attack. Any pranks in your past, done or undone?
Time for an update. My boss told me something on Friday that really kind of shocked me. I've worked fifty-nine more hours this year than I did last year at this time. When you add to it that I've also done a lot more with Mom this tax season than last it becomes pretty amazing that I'm not that tired. I am a year older and doing more work than for many years so I should be exhausted. I'm not really.
Last week of course it was five days of work. Three work projects at home. Dinner Thursday night at Mom's. Last Sunday and yesterday at Mom's. The next week is going to be six days at work (it is crunch time so Saturday is added to the schedule.) Thursday night is at Mom's. Saturday in between work is at Mom's to prepare Saturday and Sunday dinners. Other than that there really isn't much to do.
OK, I spilled my guts. Now spill yours. Catch me up on what is going on with you, your friends, and relatives. Let me know who needs prayers and/or good thoughts. Vent if you so desire. Shout the good stuff at the top of your longs if you so desire. Post anything you damn well please.
I am closing with a damn cute video that DR. sent:
