PHEEBS & I FOUND A FEW PHOTOS AT ONE OF OUR FAVORITE LEG STRETCH SPOTS THIS MORNING
I wear size 10 shoes so why I bought a pair of slippers a week ago size 11 I have no idea. I have always totally disliked the open back sandal type footwear as well so I imagine that’s what was behind the same slipper buying decision when I came home with slippers having no backs in them. I wore them around the house for an hour one night scrunching up my toes to hold them on with the backs flick flopping on the floor annoying the hell out of me. This morning I went back to Walmart and bought me a sensible pair of slippers more suited to my likes and moods. So did I return the other ones?? Nope, I donated them to the Goodwill. Maybe another old fella in a state of confusement like myself will buy them and grind some enjoyment out of scrunching up his toes & flip flopping his way around his house like I did. I’m always thinking of others you know:))
Pheebs & I did manage to get ourselves out & about for a couple hours this morning cruising a few back roads in search of a photo or two. Beautiful morning but at one of our leg stretch stops we were beset upon by a whole squadron of Gnats and had to beat a hasty retreat back to the Jeep.
It was 1 p.m. when I met my good buddy Jim (Lifetime Sentences) at Tim Hortons in Clinton. After getting the American political situation straightened out yet again we got ourselves back onto more relevant topics. Not one of our epic coffee marathons today and we did bring this one in under a near record setting 4 hours.
According to a ‘weather alert’ it iooks like we have ourselves a fast moving possibly severe storm front headed our way & due in sometime tonight. It’s ripping across Wisconsin as I type this and it could very well ramp up in intensity once it gets out over Lake Huron and for sure pick up a lot of Lake Huron water on it’s way. I may have to sleep with my water-wings on. But not to worry, I put an inner tube under my recliner.
Thanks to folks for responding about Retired Rod’s condition and his current recovery process. Not a lot is known so we’ll all just have to be patient & wait until Rod is able to get a few words out to us. Maybe his first words will be, “Hey I’m on my way to Wendys for a burg”.
GROANER’S CORNER:(( Reaching the end of a job interview, the Human Resources Officer asked a young Engineer fresh out of MIT, "And what starting salary were you looking for?"
The Engineer replies, "In the region of $125,000 a year, depending on the benefits package."
The interviewer inquires, "Well, what would you say to a package of 5-weeks vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental, company matching retirement fund to 50% of salary, and a company car leased every 2 years say, a red Corvette?" The Engineer sits up straight and says, "Wow! Are you kidding?" And the interviewer replies, "Yeah, but you started it."
A woman gets on a bus with her baby. The bus driver says, "That's the ugliest baby that I've ever seen. Ugh!" The woman goes to the rear of the bus and sits down, fuming. She says to a man next to her, "The driver just insulted me!" The man says, "You go right up there and tell him off – go ahead, I'll hold the monkey for you."
