Good morning,


Just sitting here watching Cheers waiting for the dryer to be done. A chilly start to the morning, I do have to go out and cover the air conditioner, and put away some of the outdoor stuff. I may take a nap later, or watch something Christmassy, I just know I will be taking it easy until everyone is done with work and school.

I hope you all enjoy your day!!!

Good Tuesday morning, my Christmas friends!

We had a little excitement around here this morning. One of the temp agency workers skipped a couple days from work without calling in, so they let him go. Apparently, there was some friction between him and another worker here, and on his way out the door he threatened to get a gun and come back to get that guy. And he said it loud enough for several of the other employees to hear. So now we're on lockdown, with all the blinds closed and gates & doors locked.

I actually talked to the kid a few minutes ago. I answered a phone call, & he was saying the temp agency won't take him back because he issued a "terrorist threat" here. By the end of the phone call, he was crying and apologizing. I hate it for him; he's young and probably just spouted-off before thinking, but these days you can't risk it. The law is involved, too.

Anyway, my office is nearest to the employee parking lot, so I have gate duty. Yay. LOL

I hope y'all have a great day!

Enjoy your day off!!!!

They are both feeling better!! The finger is back to normal thankfully. I thought I was going have to poke a hole in the fingernail to relieve the pressure.


The foot is doing okay. It doesn't hurt as much when I walk on it now but it still has a dull ache to it most of the time. So I think it's slowly getting better. With the emphasis on slowly!! (I have no idea why that would be either. LOL!!!!)

Thanks, for asking buddy!!!!

That is a sad situation all around. One that unfortunately will follow the young man. I'm sure he's learning a big lesson.

Stay safe, my friend!!

That is a scary situation. Like you said he was probably just spouting off but you can't joke about things like that these days.


Stay safe!!! Praying for all of you.
