Now, a kangaroo might not be too bad, LOL! I cannot watch the Animal Hoarders. That, plus the ads that show abused animals. I get too emotional and sick that someone mistreats them.

If I followed through with getting all the animals I desired I would end up on that Animal Hoarders show. I do have some self control though. =)

I forgot to add that I definitely agree with animals benefitting from interaction. Also, I noticed when we visitied my MIL at her "home," that many of the old people there would stop to pet my SIL's dog, a Papillon. I think that animals are really great for people and are known to be a great help in the healing process! Isn't that amazing?

Be sure to let us know as soon as possible. We are all waiting on pins and needles. When will they let you know about the job? It is always a tough decision, but sometimes, change is good just for change's sake!

Sitting here with the tree on, I know it's time to start taking it down but I don't really want too, not yet anyway.
I hope you all have a great day.

It's in two sections, so hopefully I can just set the bottom section down into the barrel, ease the top section in beside it, and cover the whole thing against dust. If this works, it'll make it much easier to set up and take down each year!

I had a great Aunt and Uncle that use to just put a big trash bag over there tree at the end of the season and slide it into the closet with everything still on it. Then the next year they would just slide it back out, take the bag off, and plug it back in.

But, recent changes in the market have placed new demands on our company, so we need to suck it up for one more year and go with an (almost) cost-of-living raise, although that won't defeat the income tax & healthcare cost increases. Big raise next year, for sure!

Anyway, the council meeting went well last night, and I had some veggie pizza for supper. It's not exactly a double sausage & pepperoni pizza with extra cheese, but it wasn't terrible.

I hope y'all have a great day!
whenever a raise is mentioned where I work everyone laughs!

So did you get the name of your town changed?
