While I am there I asked for a full body check just to make sure that I am not missing anything else that is pre-cancerous.

I'm a little nervous, of course, but I don't think it will be too bad. I'm not a fan of needles but I have been stuck so much lately that I'm kind of used to it.

I'll let you know how my appointment goes although I won't know much until my biopsy results come back.

Have a wonderful day! Safe travels to/from work, everyone!

You are in my thoughts.

Good luck at your appointment, Jennifer 💜
I'll keep you in my prayers.

I had a few removed almost two years ago, now. And it's something to keep an eye on yourself, as well as regular dermatology check-ups.

Thinking of you.

((Hugs))

I would love just once to drive one of the classic cars.

I love the '57 Chevy, but my all time fave is the '55 Chevy.

For a pitch, we produce samples of what we could do for the client---print, radio, digital, whatever they're looking for. Then the creatives (the writers and designers) present their ideas and sample to the client. So we haven't written anything yet that the yogurt shop can use! But I heard in a meeting this week that we will be doing some work for them.

I'm not a creative---I just proofread creatives' work to make sure there are no missing words, extras words, grammatical errors, punctuation errors, inconsistencies, or other embarrassments. Creatives are wonderful at writing, designing, and marketing ideas, but the loud voice of creativity occasionally drowns out the rulebook. So I'm the quality control, in a sense. Or the test pilot.

Good luck in the championship! I had a relative who did his basic training at Fort Devens long ago. My dad's was somewhere in Georgia. Small world!

Good morning,


I am leaving in a few minutes to go to work, so much to do, so little time. If everything goes well I should be home by 7:30 tonight, if not I could be in for a long night. In the 2.5 years I've been running the monthly inventory I've only had to stay late once.

The 90% window is so close I am starting to get really excited about the Christmas season, I can't wait to switch from "regular" music and go Christmas full time.

I hope you all have a great day, I am a little late leaving. Oops!!!


Talk to you all tonight!

Sounds like an ideal weekend!

I wonder if Ghost Hunters is still running ... I like to tune that in during October!
