She laughed, and said, what's wrong with the bike you have?

I said, "what???"

Apparently, when I moved to Las Vegas, I had given my parents a practically brand new bike to store for me. So, my Dad got it out from their storage under the porch, and brought it to me last weekend! I have no memory of this bike, LOL!!

Adrian just took it for a test ride, and said I need a few new spokes, but otherwise It's in great condition
Sweet!!

I'm told that a dog house is too good for me. She did offer to drop me off behind Bernie's store so I could sleep in a cardboard box.

I thought that was pretty generous of her, considering the steam coming out of her ears.




j/k!

Good Tuesday morning, my Christmas friends!

I survived (barely!) forgetting to pickup the kids at school yesterday.

I spent the afternoon cleaning up the city hall for an expected crowd for our council meeting. An assisted-living retirement community is about to start construction in Bellville. It's a big deal, millions of dollars being spent, and the whole county is looking at Bellville right now. The meeting went well.

I can see the jealousy in the eyes of the officials from the other towns in the county. It's a BIG city-tax revenue generator...but Bellville doesn't have city taxes. It's a point of honor that we don't tax our citizens based on their property values. We just charge $25/month for water and trash pickup, and we have fund-raisers to pay for other needs.

So the new business coming into town won't have a direct financial benefit for Bellville, but they plan to employ 100 people, so the other businesses in town should do better.

I love it when a plan comes together!

I hope y'all have a great day!

Sweet! I love the Christmas blossoms thread! Before becoming a part of MMC, I would go to the stores on my lunch break starting in late September and look for signs of Christmas. I would always think, "Am I the only one who does this?" Glad to know I'm not!

And thanks for the update. We are spoiled here thanks to our offical count master!

I should have gotten the Chinese food.
