FOF, it was really difficult --- I had to move to Georgia for a little while in order to do that.

LOL LOL LOL, etc.

The neat thing is we can do the same sort of thing in the "other direction" if we happen to miss midnight by a few minute. That's happened to me several times, so I just make a quick move to Hawaii.

LOL LOL LOL, etc., etc.

Good morning, all. Just had my new "corn flour" tacos with egg and chorizo. YUUUUUUMMMMMMM! Hard to figure why it took somebody a hundred years to decided to grind whole corn as finely as wheat flour, but that's what has happened, and I will from now on buy ONLY corn flour tortillas....AND bags of corn flour, for that matter.

Later....need coffeeeeee!

Where you, Joseph?

Greetings Doc, Baylee, Mindy, PayPump, Mick, WRINC, Joelimo, Geezer, Wack, MadDogUSMC, Loree71, Full of Fun, Chasms, blkvette00, Psycho Sid, & Others:

Happy Tuesday! 62 degrees this morning.

We safely returned around 4:30p yesterday afternoon, picking up the cats from boarding at the vet on the way. The drive took a bit longer than planned after the wreck in FL. Thankfully, by the time we arrived to the accident's location, it was cleared so the "rubberneckers" traveling north had little to view. We caught some rain, sometimes torrential downpours, but overall the travel was pretty uneventful.

After unpacking the car, we took Carol's car in to get the oil change and other service items completed and had a quiet evening watching a few new TV shows.

Today will be an especially hard day for Carol and her step-mother as it would have been her Dad's (husband's) 82d birthday. Prayers appreciated for their continued comfort.

It will be catchup time at work for me so I expect the day to be pretty busy. After work, we'll swing by the car dealer to retrieve her car.

Off to it.

Have a great day all!

Morning, all.

Got a really IRRITATING "thing" going on the right side of my tongue...'way back. Feels like I may have bitten it at one time or another, but it just keeps getting more and more bothersome, so soon's I can get an appointment, I'm going to see if Doc Jennings, our FP, can figure it out. I've tried mouthwash, vinegar, salt water and hydrogen peroxide with no success, so methinks it's time for an eggspurt opinion. I surely don't want to take a chance on....<SHUDDER!>....oral cancer.

Bone, you never mentioned Microsoft Word again....you get that figured out?

MickD, I have never EVER heard of "Adobe Word." Gotta look that up. Seems strange that Adobe would use a Microsoft term. Most companies view MS as too big and bad to take chances on displeasing. Then again, for all I know, Adobe may be a part of MS.

Oh, well...time for my morning "delivery."

Later.

We will depart for the return trip in a few hours. Traffic should be fun this morning as there was a wrong way driver who was killed on I-75 this morning.

Off to continue the day.

G'mornin', dp 'n all.

Well, dp, methinks my 'puter is on the mend. Prolly could'a bought a new one for a few dollars more. It seems to be running pretty smoothly this a.m. and I have my Acrobat back and my Wordpad, but I don't seem to be able to re-install my Adobe Word...installs 97%, and then gives me an error. Oh, well.

Joseph seems to be really busy settling in. I'm sure he'll be enjoyin' himself pretty soon.

Gotta run...off to work in "San Clam."

Wish I could "git hold" of it, MickD. As I told one of my favorite sisters-in-law yesterday, I have NEVER got hold of one I couldn't fix.

Thing is, this lady is going to give me her old POS Dell "all-in-one" because some nerd at Best Buy or some other dumbo 'puter store convinced her it'd cost more to fix it than it would to buy a new Asus or whatever she ended up with.

Suits me! It may be a while before I get it, BUT I'll bet HERE AND NOW and sight unseen that I can fix the thing using only the "good junk" I have right here in my office --- surrounded by ten laptops and three or four desktops.

LOL LOL LOL, etc.

Hey, Geezer...not sure yet, but I THINK the POS she's throwing my way is a Dell all-in-one.

Later...got old dead chicken on the grill. Somebody bought some chicken breasts that look like they came off a Dolly Parton chicken.

Good morning, Pipples.

Bone, what happened to the question about Microsoft Word?

Yeah, BayleyBug...seems as if Protestants protest from so many different religious viewpoints they get pretty danged tiresome. I'm thinking of starting something like "The Church of Whatdifferencedoesitmake," with the motto:

"You live, you die....nobody on Earth knows why, so what difference does it make?"

BUT --- we shall absoLUTaMENTE demand our area in the meat market. We'll eat nothing but one-legged snipes and hotdogs and baloneys that were slaughtered while a Lower Slobbovian mime sings "Yes, We Have No Bananas!" --- in The Unknown Tongue!

YES, Lawd!

Wellum, I've probably insulted somebody with this, so I'll leave now.

Happy Sunday! We got in a 2.7 miles walk this morning in the 70 degree temperature with a little wind. It was nice to get out and get some exercise while enjoying the sights.

We had a nice dinner with dear friends from Atlanta at Bubba Gump's Shrimp Company in Madeira Beach last night. They moved down here for employment about a year ago.

Today, we have lunch scheduled with my immediate and extended family clan in Wesley Chapel.

Tentative plans are to drive back home to the Atlanta area tomorrow morning.

Thanks again for your prayers, thoughts, and well-wishes.

Have a great day all!

BayleeBug, I'll check out soydogs. I'll probably check out "turkeydogs," too, if I can find them, because I like turkey in any form, particularly "turkeyburgers," which is what I had for supper tonight.

Wow! Dunno what sort of "something" flew up my nosebulb, but all of a sudden I started sneezing like crazy, and now I'm plugged like concrete!

Gotta git me some Actifed and hit the sack.

Good night, all.

Good evening!

Doc, Seventh-Day Adventists are generally vegetarians, and they are heavily into fake meats made from textured vegtable proteins, I think they're called. So all of their cooking is of fake-tasting "meats". The only meat-like substances I prefer are soy dogs, since they really do taste like any other hot dog - the spices make all the difference. And at least I know what's in a soy dog!

Finally back home.

My wife and Vini are at her Mother's packing, so I'll see them tomorrow. The garbage disposal died while I was gone, so the plumber put a new one in and left the putting back together of under the sink to me.

I gave a cooked pork loin to a buddy across the aisle at the show, and he filled one of my coolers with the kind of hot dogs that I like. Thank goodness we have a neighborhood party in a couple of weeks - I'll volunteer a lot of the hot dogs.

It was a good show, but I'm glad to be back home for a one day weekend. One of the leads I have is near the cabin ...

I is here, BoneDood.

As to Microsoft 2013 Word docx, I was warned that Office 2013 is "quirky," so when I upgraded from my old standard 2000, I got Office 2010 from my good buddy in Bulgaria (I think). Works like a charm, although I know so little about ANY of it, I just have to learn as I go along.

But ask away...if I can't help, maybe Baby Dotter can --- that's her forte.

Good morning, all. Finally got up at noon after another no-sleep night.

POOH!

Sid, we've been in the middle of a dredging project to clean up the upper Hudson for a few years now, but I have a new thing to worry about. This morning there were about 15 turkey vultures perched in the trees at the back of my yard. They only eat dead stuff, so I'm getting worried about my immediate future. Do they know something I don't?

Tell me more about the "old material" thing, Choco. I don't get it. CH has always just been a big'ol fun-loving gal, as far as I could see. Can't imagine her being nasty to anybody.

ANYway, this thread is possibly "down" because of my rant about "Halal." Strange to me, but it does seem that if anything "neg" comes up about The Religion of Peace, lots of folks get their underwear wadded up over it.

Oh, I see it now. She apparently just decided to be officious. Ignore the hell out of it. The mods are there to enforce the rules.
