Good evening,


A busy, productive day at work today, just relaxing before bed now.
I have a big day with head honchos being about tomorrow. Bring 'em on!!!!

The Red Sox are getting blown out, so I may use that as an excuse to go to bed at a decent time tonight. If they make a comeback I can be surprised in the morning.

I hope you all had a great Pines day.

Good night, everyone!!!

Big congratulations to Jacob. Great accomplishment!

Then I killed some time walking through a pawn shop. You can get some killer deals on tools there!

I got home just in time to put on a tie and watch Jacob get inducted into the National Honor Society. It was a nice ceremony. After that, we went to Nancy's parents' house for supper.

I hope to cut the grass today. It looks crazy!

I hope y'all have a great day!

We just tuned in to the Sox game after watching a movie. Unpleasant surprise. Crossing my fingers ...

How special to hear those words from your son!

Your boss is very lucky to have you!

If any of you make it to Western Massachusetts you definitely have to visit Yankee Candle Village, all the Christmas stuff, the candles is just amazing. I will be posting pictures tomorrow here and in the Blossoms thread.

Very busy day at work today, we could not keep up at all and we have some head honchos coming in Thursday, so everyone will be walking on eggshells the next few days. At least I am off tomorrow. I actually did receive a compliment today, which are always few and far between, my supervisor said to me "He wishes he could clone me, because my work is always done" and I told him it was because "I try to stay 2 steps ahead of you because I don't want to deal with you." He thinks I was joking around.

I hope you all had a great day.

Good night, everyone.

Thankfully my beloved Tigers came back strong today. Going down 3 games to one would have been crushing.

Here's wishing everyone a great Thursday!
