Thanks, xmastidings =]

It is a stand alone piece. I found it on the Bradford Exchange. It's a Thomas Kinkade piece. My only complaint is that it's smaller than I had hoped I wish it was life sized!
But I still love it!!

Thanks SF! The doctor said he looks like he's in his 70's instead of going on 95.... I hope and pray I have his genes!!!

Enjoy your evening of Christmas movies & ice cream!!

I have done that before: schedule a doctor's appointment for, say, 3 p.m. and take off for the rest of that day and go to the interview also. Is there another appointment that you could take one of your kids to and include the interview? I think if you are truthful with your present employer, she will appreciate your honesty, especially if you can schedule the appointment as late in the day as possible. I also think your prospective employer will appreciate that, too! I truly hope you can find a way to go to the interview with a clear conscience.
Great idea, Seawaters!!

So, I got a stiff piece of cardboard, cut it to fit the 24x24 inch supply air diffuser and I got up on my desk one evening when no one was there and placed it into the ceiling grid so that it covered the whole opening.... Problem solved!
(Food for thought....)

Yea, me too! I've been tossing and turning so much at night because I'm hot one minute, kicking the covers off, then chilly the next, pulling them right back on, and so on... I got tired of it so last night I went down stairs and set the thermostat for 71 degrees!

I've been noticing lately that I've been hitting the coffee pot allot more during the time frame of between 1-3 pm....

It's 4am...Time to make the Coffee....

Oh I feel so bad for the animals too. I have only been walking the dogs early in the morning and late at night. But with the humidity that we have been having it is too warm no matter what time of the day it is. It stinks!
