Well, off to have some fun! Talk to you guys later! God Bless and keep smiling!

Attached is a picture of DS birthday cake. He loved it!
Happy B-day to him!! I hope you have fun at the amusement park.

I remember when Thomas was everything to my boys. Now he is just a memory, they are more into Adventure Time and silly shows like that.

sorry for renting
Sorry about the car issues, I hope you can get it fixed soon.

Figured out why my computer keeps shutting down, it was over heating. One of the fans is not working as it should. My brother is going to give it a good cleaning for me and check to see if the fan is broken or just clogged up. I put it on one of my cake cooling racks for now and that seems to be working to help keep it cool.
Stay safe!!!

Good idea with the cooling racks.

Oh, Hubby and I obviously did not make it to the 5 p.m. Mass on Saturday, but we did go to the Sunday morning Mass. I looked through the Missal and found that we go to Mass 16 times before Halloween is here and 20 times until Advent. Yay!!!

It's okay. The building is on a mostly residential street. But it's nice to be able to see what the weather is doing.

I found out later in the afternoon that I'm sitting directly opposite an air vent that, when it cuts on, is strong enough to blow papers across my desk. Not ideal for proofreading! The CFO is trying to get the contractors to move the vanes so it doesn't blow directly at me. I hope that happens soon! Otherwise, it's pretty good.

Good afternoon/evening,

Long day at work, it is hard to leave on time when your best employee is on vacation.

I think we are copying Sugar lately, we went to see Despicable Me 2 the other day after she did, and tomorrow we are heading to Six Flags, it will be the first time we have gone since April, and we have seasons passes.

I did get a reminder in my email from Hallmark about the ornament premiere weekend this weekend, I showed it to my wife and tried to plant the seed that I want to go. Only problem is we live a long distance from any Hallmark stores ao it is almost a day trip. But Christmas fun beckons, so it is always worth it.

I got to go fire up the grill, for chicken skewers.
